President Obama's Latest Lawlessness Demands Impeachment
    Just when you thought the lawlessness of President Barack Obama and his henchmen had reached its limit in his unconstitutional executive amnesty orders and memos another even more astonishing example of illegal behavior regarding immigration has been revealed.
    U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, issued a statement regarding new data, unearthed in a Freedom of Information Act request, which revealed the operation of a shadow immigration system, that since 2009 has issued 5.5 million foreign worker permits above the yearly flow of 1 million green cards and 700,000 guest workers, a massive surplus beyond existing legal numerical limitations.
    This drastic expansion of foreign workers, which includes many illegal workers, undermines jobs and incomes for all residents, including recent immigrants. [...]
    As our friend Andrew C. McCarthy (author of Faithless Execution) wrote for in National Review back in November 2014, “People desperately want to believe there is a way to stop the president without stopping him from being the president. I wish I could give them better news.”
    McCarthy went on to make the point that, “Obama is guided only by his political calculations, not the law or his oath of office.”

Boehner Has No Option
During the debate over the DHS funding that led to a failed cloture vote, Republican Senators argued that that Democrats were trying to keep the issue of Obama's violation of the constitution from a real debate. -- All that must happen for a real debate to occur is for the House of Representatives to pass articles of impeachment.

From Wikipedia
The House debates the resolution and may at the conclusion consider the resolution as a whole or vote on each article of impeachment individually. A simple majority of those present and voting is required for each article or the resolution as a whole to pass.[...]
SENATE: “The proceedings unfold in the form of a trial, with each side having the right to call witnesses and perform cross-examinations."
Speaker Boehner has no option but to move for impeachment.
