Washington, D.C. – Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) released the following statement after the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against the President’s lawless executive actions on immigration.

“The President can’t make or amend law unilaterally.  What is seemingly basic knowledge in any U.S. civics class has necessarily been explained to the administration twice by our judiciary, and it still hasn’t sunk in. “The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that the President cannot unilaterally rewrite the People’s considered opinion on our nation’s immigration policy is not only a win for the nation but also for the republican form of government our founders established.  While President Obama remains dedicated to enforcing his will against the people, Congress and the states are valiantly defending the very right to self-determination we fought a revolution to secure.  Today we can look toward another incremental victory to ensure our executive doesn’t become a modern-day monarchy.”
