Letter to Representative Vern Buchanan - Extra-Constitutional Executive Orders

Sent 11/22/2014
Dear Representative Buchanan.

I fail to understand how members of congress, reporters and opinion makers,  believe the president can get away with bypassing the US Congress.  He needs to be stopped in his tracks.  To do so I would suggest charging anyone in this administration with a crime for trying to enforce or implement unconstitutional executive orders.

I spend 21 years in the US Army and I know that there is no rule or regulation that requires carrying out orders and directives that are unlawful. Anyone in a position of trust and responsibility should understand this as well.

If the head of DHS implements the president's change to immigration law, he should be brought before congress and forced to explain his unlawful actions. Hefty fines should be levied and other actions such as impeaching department heads. The same goes for any federal department head who violates the law.

The president's actions show a clear contempt for our representative republic.  His proclamations need to be nipped in the bud before the executive branch makes congress and the people irrelevant.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
