‘Grounds for impeachment’
That’s what Rep. Joaquín Castro (R-TX) says about Trump if he tries to move forward with an immigration ban:
Democratic U.S. Rep. Joaquin Castro (TX) said that if Pres. Donald Trump tries to force government agencies to ignore a judge’s stay on his controversial — and chaotically implemented — immigration order from last week, then Congress must begin the process of impeachment.
BuzzFeed.com said Wednesday that Castro joined other Democrats like Sen. Dick Durban (D-IL) in calling for an investigation into whether Trump “intentionally exceeded his constitutional authority” with the order, which plunged the U.S. immigration system into chaos and drove protesters into the streets by the thousands.
Congress must take steps to censure Pres. Trump, Castro said, or begin impeachment lest the nation’s government devolve into a “military junta” with “no more checks and balances” on executive power.
If the White House has ordered Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) officers to ignore the stay handed down by a federal judge last Sunday, Democrats say, then the administration has crossed a red line.
