TV (C-SPAN): Presidential Powers and the Constitution

Legal scholars [including CAC Senior Counsel Simon Lazarus] testified on the constitutionality of some of President Obama’s uses of executive branch powers. They focused on the administration’s one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act’s employer mandate, the Justice Department’s decision to not prosecute some drug cases, and the president’s decision allowing work permits for some immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally as children.
