WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Rice (SC-07) released the following statement denouncing President Obama’s decision to bypass Congress and grant Amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants:

“Recognizing President Obama's pattern of disregard for the Constitution, I have previously taken steps to stop the President from abusing his power.  Through an unconstitutional change in our nation's laws, President Obama has ignored the Constitutionally-mandated separation of powers again.  Instead of deepening the dysfunction of a broken immigration system, I implore President Obama to reconsider his course, and learn to work with Congress.”
