Obama Should Not Bypass Congress on Immigration

News reports indicate that next week President Obama plans to announce executive action to grant legal status to millions illegally in the United States.

I strongly urge President Obama to reconsider this decision.

The country delivered a public repudiation of President Obama’s policies in the midterm election. The election results show that the American people want the Obama administration to begin working with Republicans on responsible solutions.

In addition to constitutional concerns, changing existing immigration law via executive order will ignore the wishes of the American people. It also will jeopardize the president’s opportunity to work with Republicans in 2015.

History has shown that granting legal status with only the promise, not proven results, of border security does not work.

A unilateral executive action granting amnesty would be a disservice to everyone who followed the law to legally immigrate to the United States. 


A Vote for Keystone is a Vote for Jobs, Energy Independence

For years, Republicans in Congress have urged Majority Leader Harry Reid to allow a vote on the Keystone XL Pipeline. 
 
The State Department twice found that there would be no significant environmental impacts if the project is built, but the Obama Administration continues to delay final approval. 
 
I am pleased that some on the other side of the aisle finally have called on Congress to end President Obama’s needless delay on this project. 
 
This $5.3 billion, privately-funded, shovel-ready project will put the United States on a path to energy independence and put 42,000 Americans back to work.
  
This real "stimulus bill" should have been voted on a long time ago.
