McCain: Obama ‘dictating that certain laws will not be enforced’

GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) blasted President Obama’s decision to halt the deportation of some young illegal immigrants, saying it was an overreach of the chief executive’s powers and called it an attempt to “distract” voters from the economy.

“The thing that may disturb people after the initial euphoria is over about this is that the President of the United States is now dictating that certain laws will not be enforced,” said McCain Sunday on Meet the Press.

“That is a rather serious step. It’s one thing to say you’re not going to challenge a law in court, or something like that. But, I don’t recall a time when any president has basically said, we’re not going to enforce a law that’s on the books,” he added.
