Add the American Conservative Union to the list of organizations condemning White House plans for illegal immigrants.

“President Obama’s executive order is like a royal decree giving legal status to millions of people who came here and reside here illegally. The president is showing utter contempt for the American voter, the Constitution, the separation of powers and all those who follow the law. It is appalling that a president of the United States, after having suffered a humiliating defeat in the midterm elections and getting a clear vote of no confidence, would give the voters a single-finger salute of contempt,” declares Matt Schlapp, chairman or the group.

He’s not done yet.

“President Obama is a president who leads from behind. Now, he will roil the country in a constitutional crisis instead of working with the opposition party and doing the hard work. Today, President Barack Obama cemented his fate as a two-term Jimmy Carter,” Mr. Schlapp continues.

“His action today also will destroy the ability to fix what is broken in the immigration process and it puts the Democrat nominee in 2016 squarely in the bulls-eye for the outrage that will ensue from this moment forward. The American Conservative Union pledges to take all appropriate steps to stop this rogue presidency.”
