Senator Perdue Calls On President Obama To Reverse Lawless Amnesty Actions

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) today released the following statement after the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit upheld the injunction preventing President Obama’s executive amnesty programs from moving forward:

“This is a victory for Georgians who want a federal government that respects the rule of law. Once again, a federal court has reaffirmed that President Obama’s executive amnesty was unlawful and unacceptable overreach. We must stop the President’s abuse of power before his imperial presidency does any more damage to our country. I call on President Obama to reverse his unilateral executive amnesty, which exceeded the executive’s authority and disrupted the Constitutional balance of powers.”

Senator Perdue continues to fight against President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. He voted five times to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty programs, voted against Loretta Lynch’s nomination for Attorney General because of her support for implementing executive amnesty, and signed the amicus brief challenging President Obama’s unconstitutional executive amnesty along with 25 states, including Georgia.
