Rep. Marino Slams Obama’s Executive Action on Immigration as Affront to our Democratic System

April 18, 2016
Press Release

Washington D.C.—Congressman Tom Marino (PA-10) issued the following statement regarding the United States Supreme Court hearing oral arguments on United States, et al. v. Texas, et al. – a case challenging President Obama’s sweeping executive action on immigration:

“There is no doubt President Obama usurped the power of the legislative branch in an attempt to single handedly create sweeping immigration reform. Unfortunately, this blatant disregard for our constitution has become all too familiar under the Obama administration. Not only are the president’s actions in contrast with our rule of law, but granting amnesty to those who have traveled here illegally will only perpetuate an already bad situation. President Obama’s actions are an affront to our system of coequal branches of government. Congress and our courts must act now to halt the recent increases in concentrated executive power and rein in this out of control administration.”
