Ben Carson on same-sex marriage: The executive branch doesn’t have to enforce ‘judicial laws’




Answering a question dealing with same-sex marriage rulings coming from the courts, Ben Carson says that the Constitution compels the executive branch to enforce laws from the legislative branch. He says it doesn’t say anything about ‘judicial laws‘:

“First of all, we have to understand how the Constitution works. The president is required to carry out the laws of the land, the laws of the land come from the legislative branch,” Carson said on Tuesday. “So if the legislative branch creates a law or changes a law, the executive branch has a responsibly to carry it out. It doesn’t say they have the responsibility to carry out a judicial law. And that’s something we need to talk about.”
