Congressman Lee Terry released the following statement after President Obama announced the U.S. will halt the deportation of some illegal immigrants:
"This is just one more example of this administration handing down executive decisions designed to shore up the President's political base. This is a serious, emotional subject that needs to be addressed in a way that is well thought out and does not encourage illegal immigration. But today's executive order simply proves that this administration would rather circumvent Congress rather than work with Congress. I'm disappointed, but this is in no way the end of this matter," Terry said.
