Today, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) issued the following statement on the Obama administration's announcement that it will remove the threat of deportation and grant illegals brought into the country at a young age the right to work in the United States.
"The President has just sent a message to every potential illegal immigrant throughout the world that it's ok to bring their children to the United States and break American law. This announcement is a slap in the face to all those who followed the law and waited in line and those who are still waiting to come to the U.S. legally. Their families are not going to be taken care of. It's the scofflaws who are being rewarded by this president.
"It's obvious this was a politically expedient decision and betrayal of American youth. Fewer jobs will be available to our citizens and legal immigrants and already limited resources and benefits for our own young people will be further taxed as a result of this back door amnesty by the Obama administration."
