Statement

Congressman David Schweikert (R-AZ) made the following statement Friday after learning of the White House's decision to no longer deport illegal immigrants, but instead hand out immunity in the form of rubber-stamped work permits:

"Once again, the Campaigner-in-Chief has bypassed Congress, this time to move an election year backdoor amnesty plan. "This thinly veiled political ploy is detrimental to Arizonans who are already struggling to find jobs and will now have to compete with illegal immigrants. "While President Obama asks the Department of Homeland Security to "look the other way,' I ask him to respect the rule of law, and get back to focusing on putting 23 million unemployed Americans back to work."
