Immigration actions on hold

16 Feb, 2015

Obama’s executive actions on Immigration, which were to go into effect on February 18, are temporarily halted following an order by federal judge Andrew Hanen, until the U.S. District Court in Brownsville, Texas, rules on the matter. With the constitutionality of his actions now to be investigated, Obama tells reporters that the White House will appeal.

My strong advice right now to Congress is, if they are seriously concerned about immigration, about our borders, about being able to keep criminals out of this country, then what they should be doing is working together and working with the administration for a comprehensive immigration policy that allows us to continue to be both a nation of laws and a nation of immigrants.
