Lee Commends Supreme Court Check On President’s Power

Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) issued the following statement Thursday in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in U.S. v Texas.

“Today the Supreme Court fulfilled its constitutional duty to act as a check on the power of the President,” said Lee. “President Obama may have thought he could use a pen and a phone to steamroll the democratic process, but the Supreme Court has reminded him that there is a proper way to change our laws. This reminder is even more crucial given that Hillary Clinton has promised to end almost all deportations categorically. In the meantime, I will continue to work with my colleagues to achieve real, step-by-step reform of our immigration system.”
