JONES STATEMENT ON SCOTUS HALTING OBAMA’S UNCONSTITUTIONAL AMNESTY

Jun 23, 2016 Issues: Illegal Immigration

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) gave this statement on the Supreme Court upholding a lower court injunction against President Obama’s executive amnesty:

“President Obama’s executive amnesty is an outrageous overreach of executive authority.  I am glad the Supreme Court has upheld an injunction that stops his unconstitutional amnesty,” said Congressman Walter Jones. “Obama’s executive amnesty is a flagrant abuse of the law and a slap in the face to the millions of law-abiding, out-of-work Americans and legal immigrants who are trying to bounce back in this sluggish economy.  I have consistently voted to stop illegal immigration into this country and to stem the flow of benefits to those who have broken our immigration laws.  I will continue to do everything I can to defend our borders and defend the rule of law.”
