Rep. Ratcliffe Statement on Ending Obama’s Executive Amnesty Program

September 5, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTION – Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-Texas) released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to end former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“I support President Trump’s decision to end an unconstitutional program that was created through President Obama’s abuse of executive authority. My very first action as a member of Congress was raising one hand, placing the other on the Bible, and taking an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. Obama’s constitutional overreach and abuse of the separation of powers has been struck down by the courts before, and I believe DACA would be no different. The constituents I’m privileged to represent want our immigration laws properly enforced and our borders secured. I remain committed to delivering upon those goals for them.”
