Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) floated the possibility of impeaching President Obama over the administration’s recent decisions on immigration, during an appearance on Bill Bennett’s radio show on Tuesday.

Responding to a question about the Department of Homeland Security’s decision to pull back “on a program known as 287(g) — which allows the feds to deputize local officials to make immigration-based arrests” — following the Supreme Court’s ruling invalidating substantial sections of Arizona’s SB 1070, Kyl said the president must be held accountable:

"Now if it’s bad enough and if shenanigans involved in it, then of course impeachment is always a possibility."
