Sen. Rand Paul today issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s decision to implement immigration reform through the use of executive action.
“President Obama is not above the law and has no right to issue Executive Amnesty. His actions blatantly ignore the Separations of Powers and the principles our country was founded on. The President has said 22 times previously that he does not have the power to legislate on immigration,” Sen. Paul said. “I believe that immigration reform is needed, however for true and effective reform, we must first secure the border. I will not sit idly by and let the President bypass Congress and our Constitution.”
Additionally, Sen. Paul appeared last night on the Fox News Channel’s On The Record with Greta Van Susteren to discuss President Obama’s actions on immigration reform.
