Illinois GOP Congressional Delegation Responds to Obama's Executive Actions

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Representatives Peter Roskam (R-IL-6), Rodney Davis (R-IL-13), Randy Hultgren (R-IL-14 , John Shimkus (R-IL-15), Adam Kinzinger (R-IL-16), and Aaron Schock (R-IL-18) today released the following statement reacting to President Obama's announcement that he will be using an executive order to bypass Congress and grant amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants.

"President Obama's plan to ignore the Constitution and circumvent Congress is a lawless move that will ultimately do much more harm than good. We believe Congress should take the lead on immigration reform, securing our borders, improving the visa system and addressing the many layers of our broken system. This temporary measure will only spark chaos and create major problems both now and in the future. In fact, President Obama himself has said many times that an executive action of this magnitude would be unlawful. By blatantly bypassing Congress to execute this illegal executive order, the president is neglecting the interest of the American people, diminishing our national security, undermining the rule of law, and setting back efforts to permanently and meaningfully fix what's broken in the immigration system."
