"The Founding Fathers envisioned that each branch of government would carefully protect the authority vested within the Constitution....There is a whole list of things that have been done by this president. This one is the most clear," King said in his statement to Napolitano.
He continued by explaining that the Obama administration's move to unilaterally grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens was well beyond the 'prosecutorial discretion.' "I have accepted the prosecutorial discretion when it dealt with individuals, but I do not when it deals with groups of people that are created by a memorandum. And I do not when it deals with a work permit that is ordered to be issued that doesn't exist in the United States Code. That is the province of Congress. I thank you for being here today, but we will see each other down the line in litigation."
