David Rivkin, the lawyer who designed and argued the successful multi-state challenge to ObamaCare, is turning his guns on the latest and possibly the most egregious unconstitutional power grab by the Obama administration. Watch Rivkin in action on Lou Dobbs.
David Rivkin will be interviewed on Lou Dobbs Tonight on the Fox Business Network Friday, January 13 (7 to 8 p.m. EST) regarding a recent article he co-authored for The Washington Postabout President Barack Obama’s claims that he can preempt state law whenever immigration policy “might irritate a foreign government.”
The case stems from the Arizona immigration policy of penalizing illegal immigrants, and, according to Rivkin, it boils down to an unprecedented expansion of presidential power, among others.
“This is a stunning and audacious power grab, far more expansive than the legal theories that prompted critics of President George W. Bush to argue that he established an ‘imperial presidency.’ It simply cannot be that, despite all the Constitution’s limitations on federal power and executive action, the president’s powers become absolute whenever another nation complains.”
The Supreme Court has granted swift review of this issue, and Rivkin will explain on tonight’s show what he believes about the repudiation of Obama’s latest power grab will be quickly forthcoming.
