Bill Passes House to Prevent Obama’s Executive Order on Immigration, How Mississippi’s Delegation Voted

WASHINGTON D.C. — A bill to prevent President Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to immigrants has passed the U.S. House. All of Mississippi’s Republican House delegation voted for that bill while Congressman Bennie Thompson voted against it.

“Today’s vote was a strong rebuke of the president’s unconstitutional executive actions on illegal immigration.  Granting amnesty to nearly 5 million illegal immigrants is not within his authority, and it is not what the American people want.  The President of the United States of America  cannot simply bypass Congress or the law-abiding citizens who elected this Congress.  As one of the original five co-sponsors of today’s bill, I was glad to see the House of Representatives fight back against this president’s blatant overreach.  It is the first step of what will be many in holding the president accountable for his unconstitutional actions on immigration.”

H.R. 5759 reaffirms that only Congress has the power to write immigration laws, and prevents the president, now and in the future, from using executive actions to defer the removal of individuals residing in our country illegally.
