Congressman Jason Smith Statement on the President’s Unconstitutional Executive Overreach on Immigration
WASHINGTON –Today, Congressman Jason Smith (R-Salem, MO) issued the following statement on President Obama’s unconstitutional executive overreach on immigration:
“The American people have spoken, but instead of letting the new Congress do its job, President Obama is once again legislating through executive action. He has said 22 times that executive action on immigration was outside the scope of his authority, and we are not going to stand by and watch this president shred the Constitution.
“Since I was first elected, I have never wavered in my belief that we are a nation of laws and any immigration reform must first secure the border.”
