Huizenga Statement on DACA
Washington, September 5, 2017
Today, Congressman Huizenga released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:
“The only way to achieve concrete and lasting immigration reform is for Congress to formulate and pass bipartisan legislation. It is my hope that both Republicans and Democrats will rise to the challenge and focus on crafting solutions that move us forward instead of engaging in rhetoric that is geared toward dividing our nation. No matter how well-intentioned, by choosing to act unilaterally President Obama exceeded his constitutional authority when he created and implemented DACA. The Constitution is clear; the power to make law resides with Congress, not the President."
