Senator-elect David Perdue Statement On President’s Executive Amnesty Announcement
U.S. Senator-elect David Perdue released the following statement regarding the President’s executive amnesty announcement:
“President Obama’s proposed executive action on amnesty is an outrageous abuse of power. Georgians sent a clear message in the most recent election: they want Washington to work again. They don’t want the President playing politics and sidestepping Congress on important issues like immigration. They want security first and enforcement of current laws. They don’t want amnesty and open borders.
“Let’s not forget, the President purposely delayed this unilateral action until after Election Day for political purposes. As part of the new Senate majority, I will fight to hold the Obama Administration accountable when they overstep their authority and work through Congress to fix our broken immigration system with step-by-step reforms, not sweeping actions that don’t solve the underlying problem.”
