Sen. McCain Worries that Obama's Unilateral 'Amnesty' will 'Inflame the Country'

Arizona Sen. John McCain has commented on President Obama’s executive order amnesty threat a couple of times today. He is urging the president not to do what he has signaled he will do for months now.

“The American people want us to get to work on the complex things,” McCain told the Associated Press. “We just finished the least productive Congress in history. They want us to pass the XL pipeline, they want tax reform, they want a government that functions on their behalf, and they also reject resoundingly the policies of the President of the United States.

“But, most disturbing to me is if he acts by executive order and grants amnesty to millions of people, that will inflame the entire situation to the point where I think it would be — make it much more difficult to enact comprehensive reform. There’s no reason for him to do it. I don’t believe it is constitutional and it’s incredibly — that was the most disturbing part of his press conference yesterday.”

What if Obama doesn’t really want any bill to pass Congress? What if “inflaming the country” is his goal?
