WASHINGTON (AFP) - Sarah Palin called for President Barack Obama’s impeachment on Tuesday over his handling of a growing immigration crisis, becoming the most prominent right-wing US politician to make the provocative demand.

The 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee wrote on conservative website Breitbart that Mr Obama’s “unsecured border crisis is the last straw,” and that lawmakers should evict him from the White House, 30 months before his scheduled departure.

“It’s time to impeach,” Mrs Palin wrote, focusing on the president’s use of executive orders to ram through legal action opposed by many Republicans.

“President Obama’s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here,” she added.
