The legislative branch is a scam and a sham. Even if Congress passed a bill putting 1,000 Abrams tanks, deploying 300,000 U.S. Marines armed with bazookas and planting a million Claymore mines along the border, and even if they provide 2,500 Apache helicopters armed with stinger missiles and deploy three aircraft carriers in the Rio Grande, it won't matter because President Barack Obama will ignore the law and do what he wants. He's ignored many laws of the land, including the Defense of Marriage Act.
So having a Congress doesn't matter because no one can make the executive branch enforce laws they don't want to enforce.
