Congressman Collins Statement on Supreme Court’s Decision to Consider Challenge to President Obama’s Executive Actions on Immigration

WASHINGTON—Today, Congressman Doug Collins (R-Ga.) issued the following statement following the news that the Supreme Court will hear a case challenging President Obama’s executive actions on immigration.

“Since my first day in office, I have repeatedly fought against President Obama’s numerous attempts to circumvent Congress and voted numerous times to rein in the President’s end-run around Congress. In fact, my first action this Congress was to introduce legislation—the Immigration Accountability Act—to prohibit funding from being used to implement the President’s unilateral actions to grant de-facto executive amnesty to illegal immigrants.

“I hope that the Supreme Court will recognize the separation of powers, rather than legislating from the bench as we have seen them do all too often in recent decisions. The 26 states who have brought forth this lawsuit, of which Georgia is a part, are right to challenge this unconstitutional overreach that rewards illegal immigrants at the expense of American citizens.

“The President has tried to circumvent issues ranging from Second Amendment Rights, to water rights, to the immigration system. For that reason, I have cosponsored legislation to censure the President of the United States.

“I sincerely hope the Supreme Court’s decision will not only recognize that Congress is the branch with the ability to make laws, but also will stand up for the American people by preventing the Administration from unilaterally implementing harmful policies.”
