Steve King to Obama: Please Don’t Make Me Impeach You Over Immigration

Careening toward a constitutional crisis

Yes, folks, the Republican Party is threatening the President again over immigration; this time it’s far right Rep. Steve King on Fox News Sunday, saying “none of us want to do it” (yeah, right) but if Obama forces them into it they’ll have no other choice but to start impeachment proceedings.

Are we actually going to witness the spectacle of a gang of old white men trying to remove the first black President from office — over immigration? It’s looking more and more like they’re actually going to go for it. I’m only surprised it took them this long.

“None of us want to do the thing that’s left for us as an alternative,” King explained. “But if the president has decided that he’s simple not going to enforce any immigration law or at least not against anybody except the felons — which essentially he has done already, this is a broader group of people — I think Congress has to sit down and have a serious look at the rest of this Constitution, and that includes that i-word that we don’t want to say.” The Iowa Republican added: “And I only say that now because I want to encourage the president, ‘Please don’t put America into a constitutional crisis. Please don’t do that. There’s too much at stake in this country to be decided that you can take over the Constitution and write it at will.’”

“You’re saying that if he were to do that, impeachment would be on the table?” Wallace pressed.

“I think then we have to sit down and take a look at that,” King insisted. “If that’s not enough to bring that about then I don’t know what would be. We’ve never seen anything in this country like a president who says I’m going make up all the immigration law that I choose.”
