Washington, D.C.  – In anticipation of President Obama’s reported plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, U.S. Congressman Sam Johnson (TX-03) took to the House Floor to speak out against the President’s abusive executive actions.  

Regarding the President’s plan, Johnson stated:

“This summer’s border crisis was the result of President Obama’s 2012 decision to grant amnesty to some illegal immigrants.  Now the President is planning to grant amnesty to even more illegal immigrants – millions more.  And to make matters worse, these illegal immigrants may also be eligible for government benefits.  That’s just wrong.  What the president is doing is illegal. 

 

“Hardworking American taxpayers didn’t sign up to foot the bill for lawbreaking illegal immigrants.  The President is ignoring the American people, our Constitution, and our way of government.  America is a country of laws, not men. 

“My constituents are outraged at the President’s Imperial actions.  The American people want, need, and deserve a President who respects and follows the Constitution.  On behalf of my outraged constituents, I am fully committed to stopping this illegal action by the President.  Our democratic way of life is on the line.” 

On November 12th, Congressman Johnson joined his colleagues on a letter by Rep. Matt Salmon calling on House Appropriations Chairman Rogers to prohibit the funding of Obama's amnesty plan.  To view the letter, CLICK HERE.
