The Emperor speaks.

"A confident President Obama said Wednesday he won’t be stopped by “one federal judge,” telling a Miami crowd he’ll move ahead with his controversial executive action on immigration and vowing his administration will become even more aggressive in the weeks and months to come.

At a town hall meeting hosted by Telemundo and MSNBC, the president also threatened to veto GOP-backed legislation that would undo his immigration action. That measure is expected to come up for a vote later this week.

Mr. Obama took executive steps last year to halt deportations for millions of illegal immigrants, but a federal judge last week blocked the amnesty program, ruling that the president overstepped his authority.

The administration is appealing that decision, and, in the meantime, Mr. Obama gave no indication that he intends to slow his unilateral immigration-reform agenda because of the court ruling.

“This is just one federal judge. We have appealed it very aggressively. We’re going to be as aggressive as we can,” he told the crowd at the town hall. “In the meantime, what we said to Republicans is, ‘Instead of trying to hold hostage funding for the Department of Homeland Security, which is so important for our national security, fund that, and let’s get on with passing comprehensive immigration reform.’”

Obama has threatened ICE officials if they fail to follow his policies (http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obam...sty_866479.html) and is otherwise acting as if the judicial order is of no consequence. It's time for McConnell and Boehner to man up. We are entering impeachment waters.
