Donnelly Statement on President Obama’s Expected Executive Actions on Immigration

Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Joe Donnelly released the following statement in anticipation of President Obama’s announcement of Executive Actions relating to our country’s immigration system tonight.

“It is clear the immigration system in this country is broken, and only Congress has the ability to change the law to fix it. The Senate passed bipartisan immigration reform last summer with my support, though we are still waiting on the House to debate this issue.  I am as frustrated as anyone that Congress is not doing its job, but the President shouldn’t make such significant policy changes on his own.”
