Just last year, Obama proved that he knows his action was unlawful. Obama said, "This notion that somehow I can just change the laws unilaterally is just not true. ... We live in a democracy. You have to pass bills through the legislature, and then I can sign it." Nevertheless, this year, Obama did that unlawful thing anyway.
Here are a few of the 29 questions which Grassley asked the President to answer. Why has your position on your legal authority changed? Did you consult with attorneys and get a legal opinion about it? How will you treat the parents and others who deliberately violated federal immigration law by illegally bringing these young people into the U.S.? What criteria will you use to decide who gets work permits and who doesn't? Will the implementation cost of this gigantic program to reward a million and a half illegal aliens be loaded onto the U.S. taxpayers?
President Obama certainly owes Senator Grassley the answers to these questions. The job of the President is to see that our laws are obeyed, but Obama is pretending he can create his own laws and require us to obey them.
