Congressman Brian Bilbray (CA-50) today issued the following statement regarding the administration's announcement to expand "backdoor" amnesty policy:
"I am extremely disappointed in the Administration's announcement to ignore U.S. immigration law by creating yet another "backdoor amnesty' policy, particularly after denying for months that they were even considering it. The timing of this announcement is politically motivated and the policy is possibly in violation of the law. How can we expect anyone visiting our country to respect our laws when the administration is unwilling to enforce or chooses to ignore them? This mixed message will only encourage more illegal immigration and contribute to more deaths along the border."
