"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

But if we send them back then Hispanics will hate Republicans.  We must grant everyone amnesty, make them dependent on the taxpayers, and then convert them into party members.  It is the only way the GOP can be "saved."

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...
