Author: Obama Legislating From WH to Ease Immigration Laws

When President Barack Obama eased immigration laws in 2011 after he failed to pass the DREAM Act, he was legislating from the White House, says F.H. Buckley, author and professor at George Mason University School of Law.

"He has done things and the most remarkable thing was easing immigration laws," Buckley told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV on Tuesday.

"That's a function of not enforcing the law, and it's also a function of really legislating from the White House in adopting a provision which regularized almost two million young undocumented aliens," he explained.

"That was done after Congress refused to pass the so-called DREAM Act," the law professor said.

"Congress said 'we don't want to do this,' and Obama said, 'well I don't care, I'm going to do it myself,'" he contends. "That's pretty consequential."

Buckley described this as a pattern for the president.

"If people don't agree with him, they're at fault, not him," he explained. "I find that a little bit ironical."

Buckley released his latest book, "The Once and Future King: The Rise of the Crown Government in America," in April. In it he makes the case that the United States has seen the "rise of one-man rule in the age of Obama."
