Palazzo Statement on the President’s Executive Action

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) released the following statement tonight after the President announced his plan to enact new immigration policies using executive action:

“I am firmly opposed to the president’s plan to take unilateral action on immigration. President Obama is not a dictator, not a king, but an elected President bound by the Constitution of the United States. Yet, he continues to push his own personal agenda of overreaching, unwanted policies with a reckless disregard for the will of the American people.

Law-abiding citizens in our country are fed up with this administration, and rightly so. While the president grants amnesty to countless illegal immigrants, millions of American citizens are still struggling to find work.

It’s time for the president to stop playing politics and instead put the American people first. I will do everything within my power to prevent this unconstitutional and unwelcomed action.”
