Boozman Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Block Executive Amnesty
WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator John Boozman issued the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling blocking President Obama’s executive amnesty:
“This ruling by the Supreme Court affirms that President Obama’s executive actions on immigration were a gross overreach of power. This abuse of authority by the President was rightfully reigned in with this decision that prevents him from choosing not to enforce our immigration laws. It is the President’s responsibility to uphold the laws, not avoid them.
“The path to immigration reform is to work with Congress, not around us. It starts with securing our borders, as no immigration reform policies will be effective until we accomplish that goal. We must stop allowing individuals to enter the country illegally without recourse, and we must hold those who break the law accountable.”
