During his opening statement during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on “The Unconstitutionality of Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration,” Rep. Trey Gowdy told Democrats "there will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law"
"I’m going to say this for those who benefit from the President’s polices. You may be willing to allow the end to justify the means in this case. You may well like the fact that the president has abused prosecutorial discretion and conferred benefits in an unprecedented way. You may benefit from the President’s failure to enforce the law.
"Today, I will make you this promise: There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day where you will long for the law to be the foundation of this Republic.
"So, you be careful what you do with the law today. Because if you weaken it today, you weaken it, forever. With that I would yield back," Gowdy said.
