Judge Napolitano said Thursday on 'Special Report with Bret Baier' that the 'Law is on the President's side, but the politics are not' after the House resoundingly approved veto-proof legislation that requires new requirements for screening refugees from Syria and Iraq, following Friday's terrorist attacks that killed 129 people in Paris.
Obama has planned to allow 10,000 Syrian refugees to enter the United States based on a 2005 statute, but today the House passed changes to that. It now goes on to the Senate where it faces a much tougher battle to passage there.
"The law is on the President's side, but the politics are not," the Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst said. "I just don't see how the president can do this, even if the Senate fails to pass the legislation that the House passed. He has absolutely no public opinion behind him, and he and Mrs. Clinton will suffer terrifically for it."
