David Leon gives McEachin a lesson on the Constitution and DACA

In an email last week, Mr. McEachin seemed to claim that my stance on DACA (the power to make laws rest with Congress and not the Presidency, therefore President Trump did the right thing to announce the suspension of DACA unconstitutionally created by Obama) was against my oath to protect the Constitution of the United States. One of the main parts of protecting the Constitution is understanding the framework and separation of powers granted by the Constitution. The legislative power of our government, granted by the Constitution, is given to Congress by our founding fathers, not to the executive branch. Simply read Article I Section 1 which states, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” DACA was unconstitutional when it was created by Obama and, therefore, goes against the Constitution. If Mr. McEachin does not understand this, here is a link to the Constitution for him to read: www.archives.gov/founding-docs/constitution-transcript .
