"unfortunately, congress hasn'n' shown the courage to do so. so that's why the president has asked his teaa to look at what he can do administratively." president is doing what he always does when he doesn't get his way, defying the will of the people and using executive action." another controversial proposal coming in the new ar.. e president will ask
