Hoeven Statement on President Obama's Unilateral Action on Immigration

WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven today issued the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s executive order on immigration:

“In the recent election, the people of America spoke. They said clearly that they want President Obama to work with Congress in a bipartisan manner. He should not be circumventing the elected representatives of the American people with a unilateral executive order.

“The right approach is to work with Congress on immigration reform that begins by making sure we control our border. Americans want to know that the border is secure and our laws are enforced."
