Congressman Steve Womack released the below statement following President Obama's immigration announcement Friday afternoon:
"It's the latest example of this President usurping the authority of Congress to achieve election-year objectives that he, himself, has admitted are not within his exclusive executive power.
"The President acknowledged that America is a nation of laws; however, his actions serve to undermine the very laws enacted by Congress on immigration--just as he has with recess appointments, matters of national security, and the number of questionable decisions by agencies subject to his authority.
"Millions of legitimate Americans are still out of work. We don't need to be adding "insult to injury' to the plight of these hard-working citizens."
