Boozman Statement on Federal Court Ruling Blocking President's Immigration Executive Action
Feb 17 2015
U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) today released the following statement on a federal district court's preliminary injunction against President Obama’s immigration executive overreach:
"U.S. District Court Judge Hanen's decision echoes what we have been saying all along: the President simply does not have the authority to thwart the rule of law. This decision verifies that when he moved from enforcement discretion to simply ignoring the law, President Obama clearly overstepped his authority. Senate Democrats should stop protecting the President's unconstitutional actions and end their filibuster of the homeland security funding bill during a time when we face serious threats to our nation."
