President Obama is creating another constitutional crisis with his four recent “recess appointments,” bypassing the authority of the U.S. Senate. His unconstitutional actions contradict centuries of precedent, as well as recent legal analysis by Obama’s Justice Department, both the Clinton and Bush White House counsel’s office, and President Obama’s own statements as a U.S. Senator.
The Constitution allows all Presidents to make appointments when the Senate is in recess, but the Senate was still in session. There's been no recess and yet President Obama has taken this unprecedented and unconstitutional action.
Join the ACLJ in telling President Obama he must retract these unconstitutional appointments and urging him to follow the U.S. Constitution! Add your name to our petition now.

The U.S. Constitution provides the foundation for our rule of law and our rights under the law. If any part of it can be ignored by the government, all of it could be ignored by the government. President Obama, put the U.S. Constitution ahead of politics; retract your unconstitutional appointments immediately.
