Keep on dreaming guys.
I just posted in another thread, and will repeat here:
There is no way for the Congress to "force" the president to "enforce existing laws" other than the single method as provided for in the Constitution. Go ahead and sue him if you want. Pile up favorable Court opinions as high as the Capitol, and see where that gets you. Ultimately, if the president chooses to ignore those opinions, you lose.
You can read about that "single method" in Article II, Sections 2 and 4.
Other than doing it that way, forgeddaboutit...
