WASHINGTON Sen. Claire McCaskill said Sunday she is “not crazy about” President Obama’s plan to issue executive orders to aid undocumented immigrants, but said that Republicans could avert a potential constitutional showdown by taking up Senate-passed reforms in the House of Representatives.

McCaskill, D-Mo., was on CBS’s “Face the Nation” with Bob Schieffer, and her comments were in response to 2012 Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s assertion that a threatened Obama executive order would be a “poke in the eye” of Republican leaders in Congress.
