Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) released the following statement on the Supreme Court blocking President Obama’s executive action on immigration:
“The Supreme Court ruling today affirms that the president’s unilateral actions, which have marked his lame-duck term, will not stand. This decision further emphasizes that the president cannot rewrite the laws he finds problematic, nor skirt the separation of powers whenever he finds it convenient.
“Immigration is an issue that must be debated and decided by the representatives of the people, not by executive fiat. I hope that after today’s ruling, Congress can get back to work advancing bipartisan solutions to fix our broken immigration system once and for all.”
