A press release from Congressman Joe Walsh:
Congressman Walsh Responds to Obama’s Amnesty Policy
Today the White House announced a new executive order that will halt the deportation of illegal immigrants coming over the border at a young age, while granting them work permits.
This executive order that bypasses Congress gives many illegal immigrants legal worker status.
Congressman Joe Walsh stated, “This election year move by President Obama floods the weak job market with many more workers, who will be competing with unemployed and underemployed Americans for jobs they sorely need.
“We just saw unemployment and jobless claims increase these past few weeks, and the President is willing to make it that much more difficult for Americans looking for work.”
Walsh went on to say,
“This move shows why we need an independent voice and a check on the abuse of power in Washington.
“Unlike my opponent, Tammy Duckworth, who has made it clear she is a rubber stamp for Obama’s policies, I will oppose this or any President’s power grab.
“Whether it is against this executive order or the President’s mandate that limits religious freedoms, I am committed to remaining a check on unchecked power to help return control of our government to the people.”
