Johanns Statement on President’s Overreaching Immigration Proposal

WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R- Neb) issued the following statement on the President’s decision to circumvent Congress to act on immigration:

“What the President is doing is wrong. His decision to act unilaterally undermines our legal system and ignores the clear message of the American people in the recent elections, rejecting his go-it-alone strategy and his policies. Americans want us to work across party lines to find real solutions to the problems facing our nation, including this one. Instead, the President has poisoned the well, in effect destroying any opportunity for a long-term solution to our broken immigration system.”
