Hudson Statement on President Obama’s Executive Action to Grant Amnesty to Millions
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, U.S. Representative Richard Hudson (NC-08) released the following statement reacting to President Obama’s proposal to take executive action to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants:
“I am outraged at the President’s irresponsible ‘my way or no way’ approach to this important issue. By bypassing Congress, President Obama is disrespecting our constitution and ignoring the American people who demanded that leaders in Washington work together to solve the problems facing our nation.
“Granting amnesty to those here illegally is an affront to American workers and the people who are trying to join our country legally. As I’ve said before, I recognize our immigration system is broken and in need of reform, but I cannot and will not support any type of immigration reform until we secure the border first. We need to pass permanent, meaningful reforms that address the root of the problem to stop the influx of illegal immigration. I will do everything in my power to block the administration’s illegal amnesty policies and remain committed to working with my colleagues to secure our borders and fix our broken immigration system.”
