Walorski Statement on President Obama’s Announcement of Executive Action on Immigration

Thursday, November 20, 2014

WASHINGTON, DC —Congresswoman Jackie Walorski (IN-02) issued the following statement tonight after President Obama’s announcement to act unilaterally on immigration reform:

At a time when Americans want Washington to work together, I’m disappointed that instead of working with Congress to find real solutions, the president has decided to abuse his executive powers, break the law and ignore the Constitution at the expense of resolving a national crisis.

“This week, I joined with the Republican Women’s Policy Committee and sent a letter to President Obama urging him to abandon any unconstitutional executive actions on immigration reform and instead work with Congress and the people of this great nation.

“There is no question that the current immigration system is broken and there is a growing need for reform, but denying members of Congress and the American people an opportunity to offer any input only jeopardizes the chance of finding real, workable solutions.”
