Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) made the following comments after the President announced that his Administration is making changes to immigration policy:
"No one can deny that deciding what to do with children who were brought to this country illegally is a difficult problem. But it is wrong for the President to decide on his own which of our laws he will enforce and which laws he will not enforce.
Even in an election year, our country is governed by the rule of law, not the arbitrary decisions of anyone -- including the President.
By taking this action, he has made it more difficult for us to find a sensible agreement to our immigration issues, and he has once again tried to divide the country for his political gain."
