June 23, 2016
Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling in the matter of United States, et al. v. Texas, et al:

“This decision shuts down President Obama’s Executive Order that bypassed federal immigration laws and restores due process in our law making process. The president's executive overreach, in willful violation of current federal law, was a direct attack on the legislative branch's constitutional powers. I applaud the Supreme Court for rightly ruling to halt this Executive Order in support of our law writing authority. The president is not permitted to write laws - only Congress is.”
