WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer said Sunday that because of inaction by Congress on immigration, President Obama must act alone on the issue and will decide by the end of the summer exactly which steps he will take, the Washington Post reported.
Speaking on ABC's "This Week," Pfeiffer said Obama is waiting to receive recommendations from Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson before he proceeds. Pfeiffer said that whatever Obama chooses to do will "not be a substitute for comprehensive immigration reform" — which has remained stalled in Congress.
"I'm going to have to act alone," Obama said, adding that resources have gone dry with the lack of legislation. "We've run out of money." — Source
