Earnest: If Obama Were King, He Would Have Unilaterally Implemented The Senate Immigration Bill


JOSH EARNEST, WH PRESS SECRETARY: If the president were a king or emperor, what he would have done is he would have unilaterally implemented the bipartisan bill that passed the United States Senate more than 500 days ago.

He wasn't able to do that — so what he did do was he actually asked his attorney general and Secretary of Homeland Security to review what authority he did have under the law, and he used every element of the law within the confines of the law to actually try to reform as much of the immigration system as he possibly could to try to bring some more accountability to our broken immigration system.
