U.S. Rep. Steve King (R-IA) today announced he has introduced a bill to defund enforcement of President Obama’s executive action to end deportation of illegals in the United States. He also issued a statement regarding the bill, called the Defund Executive Amnesty Act, which he said would “defund all executive amnesty created by our current, lawless administration.”
“My bill defunds all of the President’s illegal and unconstitutional actions regarding immigration,” he said. “Beginning with the Morton Memos and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, and covering all of his most recent illegal and unconstitutional acts to expand DACA to 5 million more illegal immigrants. To make sure President Obama doesn’t attempt to find other ways to circumvent the Constitution, my bill also has a catch-all provision that bars any similar actions in the future and has language to make it clear illegal immigrants are not authorized to work in the United States. This preserves the Constitution, reinforces the separation of powers, and fulfills Republican promises to the American people in the 2014 election.”
