Rothfus Statement on Trump Administration Action to End DACA

Sep 5, 2017
Press Release

Washington, D.C.—Representative Keith Rothfus [PA-12] issued the following statement after the Trump Administration announced its decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“President Obama himself asserted that he did not have the authority to change our immigration laws unilaterally, but then illegally implemented DACA anyway in an election year ploy to rally his base,” said Congressman Rothfus. “The Trump Administration’s action to end this unconstitutional program restores the rule of law and allows Congress to reclaim its constitutional authority to set immigration policy. Immigration reform begins with securing our borders and establishing a functioning entry and exit system. We can then begin solving the challenges of our broken immigration system, including addressing the status of children who were brought here through no fault of their own by their parents.”
