Rep. LaMalfa (R-CA) released the following statement on the Supreme Court ruling in U.S. v. Texas, which upheld a Texas federal district court’s decision barring the President from using executive action to implement the Deferred Action for Parent of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program.
“Today, we saw our rule of law upheld at the highest level. The Supreme Court’s one-sentence opinion, handed down earlier this morning, rightfully blocks the President’s unilateral immigration action, which would have given de facto amnesty to almost 5 million people who are present in our nation illegally. The Constitution makes it clear – Congress writes the law, and the President has a duty to carry those out. This ruling today exemplified once again the importance of having separation of powers and checks and balances within our political system.”
