"Republican Congressman Will Introduce Legislation To Undo Obama’s Immigration Order"

Rep. David Schweikert (R-AZ) is circulating a dear colleague letter asking members of Congress to support legislation that would “strip the Secretary of Homeland Security of the ability to defer deportation” of young people and undermine the Obama administration’s effort to protect undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. “It is time the Administration stopped the political pandering and enforced our immigration laws,” Schweikert writes, describing Obama’s directive as “an abdication of duty to the American people who are struggling in this economy.”
