Rooney: With Immigration Executive Order, President Shows No Regard for Constitution

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney (FL-16) today issued the following statement after President Obama announced that he would implement a new immigration program by Executive Order and without Congressional approval:

"The President has shown repeatedly that he has no regard for the Constitution or separation of powers. He seems to view the Constitution not as the great ruling document that has held our republic together and helped our country prosper, but rather as an obstacle to be stepped around whenever it inconveniences him.

"Our founding fathers created a system of checks and balances precisely to prevent one person from acting as a king against the will of the people. President Obama may not like having to work with a Republican House of Representatives, but the fact is, the American people sent us here in 2010 to put a stop to his far-left agenda."
