Cornell's Jacobson: It's Hard to Challenge a President

By    |   Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 07:15 PM

A congressional challenge of President Barack Obama as he readies to sign an executive order on immigration will be a difficult, if not impossible task, says William Jacobson, director of the Securities Law Clinic at Cornell University Law School.

"What power does the Congress really have to enforce its laws? Very little. There's this bond of trust, this bond of legitimacy, whether it's legal or not, you don't do certain things. That's what we're getting at here," Jacobson said Tuesday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"We're getting at somebody who, whether it's Obamacare and deceiving the public or whether it's legalizing 5 million illegal aliens or however many people it's going to be, he cares about the result, not necessarily what it does to these binds of trust that keep our system together.

"There aren't many ways that we can actually challenge a president. This might be an issue the courts would consider, but the courts don't usually like to get involved in these political disputes between Congress and the president. That takes time."
