There are serious problems with President Obama’s failed policies and his radically dividing our country by creating racial and economic issues. More important, though, is the president’s deliberate disregard for the Constitution’s system of checks and balances for the three branches of government and his responsibility to enforce all enacted laws. The rule of law has been the fundamental principle of our country since its founding.

Mr. Obama and Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. are two of the highest-ranking men in our nation. They are responsible for enforcing all enacted laws and took an oath to defend the Constitution — first as lawyers, then as part of the government. Yet, they continue to enforce only laws they like. This is unacceptable and must be challenged by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and the judicial branch. In order to restore the government’s checks and balances, the Supreme Court must end this injustice.
