Roby Statement on DACA Announcement

U.S. Representative Martha Roby today released a statement on the Trump Administration's announcement regarding President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

"The Obama Administration's DACA program illegally circumvented Congress and was one of many instances in which President Obama blatantly abused his executive authority. President Trump and Attorney General Sessions are right to phase out this program and allow Congress to craft the appropriate policy in an orderly and constitutional manner.

"Our immigration policies should discourage illegal entry -- not reward it. In addressing this problem, we must also recognize and be sympathetic to the fact that these individuals were brought here as children and not of their own accord. This is just one of the many areas of immigration law that needs to be fixed, and I look forward to working with my Judiciary Committee colleagues to craft policies that restore the rule of law and promote America's economic interests."
