WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s recent announcement that he will issue an executive order to prevent the deportation of millions of immigrants who entered the United States illegally.

“Rather than working with Congress on the issue of immigration, President Obama has declared amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants. The president’s brazen use of executive action to bypass our nation’s immigration laws threatens the sanctity of our border, does nothing to stem the growing tide of illegal immigration and delays the prospect of fixing our legal immigration system.

“The president’s single-minded approach on immigration will not work, and he must remember that it is his constitutional duty to implement, not write, the law.  If he is serious about immigration reform, President Obama must first work with Congress to secure the border and enforce, rather than ignore, our nation’s laws,” said Congressman Lucas.
