Congressman Jodey Arrington issues statement on DACA changes

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Jodey Arrington (TX-19) issued the following statement about the Trump administration's announcement to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“President Obama took unconstitutional action by unilaterally bypassing existing federal immigration laws with the creation of DACA. In our Democracy, only Congress may create laws and the executive branch is charged with enforcing them, irrespective of politics and personal opinions. No one – not even the President himself – is above the Constitution.

"My constituents sent me to Washington to stop illegal immigration, secure the border, and find lawful solutions to our broken immigration system. I look forward to working with President Trump and my colleagues in Congress to fix the problem created by President Obama."
