Rep. David Schweikert (R-Ariz.) on Monday proposed legislation that would block enforcement of President Obama's new policy of letting certain illegal immigrants request temporary relief from deportation.

Schweikert's bill would specifically prohibit the Department of Homeland Security from allowing that relief, which Obama described on Friday as an option for up to 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States illegally at a young age. Schweikert said his bill would prevent Obama from "dictating" immigration law from the White House.

Hopefully Congressman Rohrabacher also signs on. I imagine he will.

Obama's gambit keeps paying forward. He passed Rubio's immigration reform. Moderate Republicans can't complain and those more rabid ones will just keep earning Obama votes and keep this in the newspapers throughout the election cycle.

That guy is slick.

No way in hell it's going to pass the senate. The house won't even vote on it IMO.

Means nothing if it can't get passed and I don't think it stands a chance of that.

This is about all the GOP is good for these days, blocking stuff.

This however won't get any traction.

Congress needs to pass this or else they are screwed. It will show that the president is limited to specific powers as laid out by our founders. Congress writes the laws & the president is to enforce them.

Not funny. The ancestors of most of these illegal aliens were not indigenous this country and these illegal aliens were not born here. American citizens do have a right to be in this country because they were born here. As I have often asked, when are those who have Spanish ancestors (white Europeans) going back to Spain then?
