GOPer Coburn: ‘You Could See Violence’ Over Immigration Executive Order


Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) warned that if President Barack Obama does take executive action on immigration “you could see violence.”

“The country’s going to go nuts, because they’re going to see it as a move outside the authority of the president, and it’s going to be a very serious situation,” Coburn said in an interview with USA Today. “You’re going to see —hopefully not— but you could see instances of anarchy…. You could see violence.”

Coburn’s comments come a day before Obama is expected to announce his executive actions on immigration on Thursday.

Other Republicans have also made drastic warnings toward Obama over executive action. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) in a column in Politico said that Republicans should halt key nominations if Obama takes executive action.
