Bobby Jindal: GOP Must Do Everything to Stop Obama's Amnesty Plan

Sunday, 16 November 2014 10:19 AM

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says Republicans should do everything within their power to stop President Barack Obama from taking executive action to grant amnesty to up to 5 million illegal immigrants.

When asked Sunday on "Meet the Press" whether that included shutting down the government, Jindal replied, "I don't think the president should shut down the government to try to break the Constitution."

Host Chuck Todd said that sounded like he would favor a standoff that could possibly shut down the government, but Jindal stuck to his assertion that it would be Obama shutting down the government if he and Republicans in Congress can't reach an agreement.

Turning to Jindal's own possible presidential aspirations in 2016, Todd noted that the governor suffers low approval numbers in his own state.

Jindal said he's never been concerned with polls, and was elected to make "generational changes" in Louisiana.

He noted he has cut the state budget 26 percent, cut the number of state employees by 34 percent and overseen the growth of Louisiana's private sector economy at double the rate of the national economy.

Jindal has said he won't decide on a presidential run until next year, but that if he does it would be because "I believe in our country."

"The American Dream is at jeopardy," he said. "This president has defined the American Dream as more dependence on the government."
