Reed Statement on Passage of HR 5759 Executive Prevention Act of 2014


Date: Dec. 4, 2014
Issues: Immigration

"I was pleased to support the House effort to remind the President of his duties as given by the Constitution. Rather than taking unilateral, clearly unconstitutional action that places politics over fairness to those who follow the rules and come to this country legally, I hope that the President will work with us. While I do not support amnesty, a path exists to providing legal work status to those here illegally while at the same time ensure our national security remains intact. I know from listening to constituents a pathway to such status, as opposed to unconstitutional amnesty, is a compromise that can work."
