RSC Statement on President Obama’s Unilateral Plan to Move on Immigration

House Republican Study Committee Chairman Rob Woodall issued the following statement after the White House announced President Obama will bypass Congressional authority and take executive action to provide legal status and work permits to as many as 5 million illegal immigrants:

“President Obama’s unconstitutional plan to circumvent Congress and grant amnesty by unilateral executive order is unprecedented, and an insult to the American people who on Election Day rejected his policies and voted to change the way Washington functions. A majority of Americans oppose President Obama’s amnesty plan and want the White House to work together with the newly elected Congress to find solutions that secures our borders and reforms the process so that it actually works for those trying to do it the right way. Unfortunately, President Obama is securing his legacy of ignoring the Constitution by playing political games with immigration. House Republicans will use every tool available to stand up against this unconstitutional plan”

A recent survey found that three-quarters of voters want the President to work with Congress to change immigration policies, not act on his own.
