Rep. Allen West: Obama Is "Shredding" The Constitution

"I think he's shredding his responsibilities as the president, and his respect and regard of the Constitution," Rep. Allen West (R-FL) said in an interview with the conservative publication Newsmax.

In an exclusive Newsmax.TV interview, West cited Homeland Security Department chief Janet Napolitano’s announcement last week that the federal government will allow illegals not charged with other crimes to remain in the country and will not deport them.

“It’s absolutely a form of amnesty, and it does go against our Constitution,” says West, who called for a congressional investigation into the administration action.

West is confident he won’t lose the support of the tea party base following his vote in favor of the compromise that raised the debt ceiling. He explained to grass-roots conservatives that it is not realistic to expect to get 100 percent of what they want until the current political balance changes in Washington. (via Weasel Zippers)
