Conservative Review Liberty Score Update: Executive Amnesty

Originally posted by the editors at Conservative Review

On November 20, President Obama announced an unprecedented amnesty for millions of illegal aliens without the consent of Congress. Through executive fiat, he set up a program through which the illegal immigrants can apply for work permits and Social Security cards. Once they obtain Social Security cards, the illegal immigrants may be eligible for up to $30,000 in refundable tax credits.

Congressional Republicans campaigned in the 2014 midterm on standing up to President Obama’s lawlessness and using the power of the purse to reign him in. They kicked the can down the road in November by passing the Cromnibus bill and promised to fight Obama’s amnesty when they assumed control over both houses of Congress in 2015.
