Very different takes from Georgia’s U.S. senators regarding the Trump Administration’s decision on ‘childhood arrivals.’ You can read Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ entire remarks here.
U.S. Sen. David Perdue (R-GA) comments on President Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program: “President Obama acted outside of his constitutional authority when he unilaterally changed our immigration laws through executive order. It is clear President Trump and Attorney General Sessions are committed to tackling the problems with our broken immigration system. Moving forward, it is imperative that any immigration proposals considered by Congress protect the interests of working Americans, including immigrants. We cannot repeat the mistakes of the past with a comprehensive immigration bill that does not work. The RAISE Act’s changes to our legal immigration system should be part of the solution. I will continue working with Senator Cotton and my colleagues to advance this merit-based system that is pro-worker, pro-growth and proven to work.”
