REP. ROKITA STATEMENT ON UNITED STATES V. TEXAS RULING

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Supreme Court issued a 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, which upholds the lower court’s decision that President Obama’s executive order regarding illegal immigration is unlawful.  Rep. Todd Rokita issued the following statement in response to the ruling.

 

“President Obama’s executive actions on immigration brazenly ignored the Constitution and the will of the American people.   Today’s decision by the Supreme Court is a victory for the rule of law and the checks and balances our founders explicitly laid out in the Constitution.  Without a doubt, our immigration laws need updating, but this ruling affirms that it should not come by executive fiat.”
