Carter Statement on Federal Judge’s Ruling to Halt President’s Overreach on Immigration
Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (GA-01) released the following statement after United States District Judge Andrew Hanen granted a preliminary injunction to block President Obama’s executive overreach on immigration. The decision allows a lawsuit from twenty-six states, including Georgia, aimed at permanently stopping the executive orders to move through the courts.
“This is a welcome announcement as the President himself said he did not have the authority to move forward with his executive orders. This is yet another warning to the President that he will not get away with his blatant overreach on amnesty and I look forward to watching this case as it progresses.
“House Republicans have already acted to stand up to the President and restore the balance of powers.
It’s time for Senate Democrats to allow our bill to move forward to fund the Department of Homeland Security and block President Obama’s unconstitutional executive action on immigration once and for all.”
