GOP chairmen vow to stop Obama

Two powerful Republican committee chairmen warned President Obama in a letter Wednesday that they would use every tool at their disposal to stop his executive actions on immigration.

House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul (R-Texas) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) added to the chorus of GOP criticism against the president, calling an executive order “ill advised” and urging Obama to work with Congress to find a compromise.

“Let’s secure the border, enforce our immigration laws in the interior of the United States, and build a broad consensus for immigration reform,” they wrote.

“Otherwise, as the chairmen of the committees with oversight over border security and our nation’s immigration laws, we will be forced to use the tools afforded to Congress by the Constitution to stop your administration from successfully carrying out your plan.”

The White House on Wednesday said the president will announce his “commonsense steps” on immigration in a prime-time address on Thursday evening.
