Friend, President Obama’s unilateral action to delay the deportation of illegal immigrants was nothing more than executive amnesty. It was a blatant abuse of power. Laws are made in Congress, not the White House.
Today, the House took action and passed my amendment to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty. With Republican control, I’m hopeful this measure will also pass the Senate.
We cannot allow the President to get away with abuses of power like this, no matter if it’s a Republican or a Democrat in the White House. The path to immigration reform is through Congress and this unconstitutional overreach by the President sets a dangerous precedent.
