“Well, the ball is in our court. We have tools under the Constitution to stop what the president is trying to do. You know, he said over 20 times over the last year that he doesn’t have the authority to do this and that that’s not how democracy works. I would argue that what he’s doing now is really a threat to democracy itself by going against the will of the American people, circumventing the Congress, not working with Congress to get this done.”
