This administration is a serial violator of our constitutional separation of powers. They bypassed the Senate, and its constitutional responsibility to advise and consent, to recess appoint three members of the National Labor Relations Board even though the Senate was not in an appropriate recess. They effectively amended the nation’s immigration policy by granting tens of thousands of people legal status. And, with the stroke of a pen, they are unilaterally opening the door to gutting the work requirements that were the centerpiece of the 1996 welfare-reform law.
But what’s perhaps even more disturbing than the White House so flagrantly ignoring the Constitution is that congressional Democrats don’t seem to mind.
