Senator David Perdue Continues To Fight Against Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Highlights Recent Actions Against Obama’s Immigration Actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) continues to fight back against President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. In addition to voting to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty five times on the Senate floor, Senator Perdue recently signed an amicus brief against the President’s amnesty actions and raised concerns about fraud in the current legal immigration system.

“We must stop President Obama’s egregious abuse of power. Given his disregard for Congress and the American people, I remain concerned about the national security risks and Constitutional crisis created by President Obama’s amnesty actions,” said Senator Perdue. “I promised Georgians that I will fight on their behalf against President Obama’s lawless executive amnesty, and I will not rest until we secure our border and restore the rule of law to our country.”

Senator Perdue Signs Amicus Brief Against Obama’s Unconstitutional Executive Amnesty:

Senator David Perdue, along with 112 other lawmakers in the House and Senate, recently signed an amicus brief in support of 25 states, including Georgia, challenging President Obama’s executive amnesty. President Obama’s amnesty policy “changes the law and sets a new policy, exceeding the executive’s constitutional authority and disrupting the delicate balance of powers,” wrote the lawmakers.

Senator Perdue Demands Explanation For Potential Fraud In Obama’s Immigration Processing:

Senator David Perdue, along with six other Senators, recently signed a letter to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), demanding an explanation for plans to process applications for deferred deportation in an electronic system that has been riddled with challenges and ballooning costs. The plan, issued by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, would also flood a system designed to prioritize legal immigrants with applicants who violated immigration laws. This processing decision by USCIS may have exposed “our immigration system to fraud and national security threats,” wrote the Senators.
