Pres. Obama Defends Use Of Executive Action On Immigration

President Obama shrugged off criticism of his executive action on immigration with a challenge to House Republicans: if you don’t like it, do something. On Friday, President Obama signed the most sweeping changes to the U.S. immigration laws in three decades, excusing millions of undocumented immigrants living in the country for three years. In an exclusive interview with ABC News that aired Sunday, the president defended his executive action.

President Obama also blamed House Speaker Boehner’s failure to allow a vote on legislation as the reason it was necessary. Congressional Republicans have vowed to fight to make the president withdraw the action.
