Congressman Austin Scott on the President's Announcement to Use Executive Action on Immigration Reform

November 21, 2014
Press Release

WASHINGTON–U.S. Congressman Austin Scott (GA-08) today released the following statement regarding President Obama’s announcement to use executive action on immigration reform.

“President Obama’s decision to act unilaterally on immigration is the latest example of his arrogance and indifference to the laws of this country,” said Congressman Scott.   “He talks about fairness and justice, about character and responsibility, yet he ignores the U.S. Constitution and the pledge he swore to uphold it. The President himself has earlier stated that, by taking this action, he would be ‘ignoring the law in a way that I think would be very difficult to defend legally.’”
