WASHINGTON, D.C.- Today, Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) released the following statement regarding DACA.
“President Obama’s DACA program was an unconstitutional abuse of executive power," said Congressman Poe. "It is Congress that writes the immigration laws of this country, not the President. It is past time for Congress to act to finally address our broken immigration system, including strengthening our border security, interior enforcement, and giving clarity to the “Dreamers.” Through no fault of their own, these individuals were brought to the United States where they made their home and contributed to our community. They should be able to earn the right to remain, but only through a legal process that Congress sets forth. Congress must act immediately to resolve this issue.”
