WASHINGTON, D.C. — Congressman Robert Aderholt today released the following statement on the future of the DACA program.

 

“First, it is important to remember that DACA runs contrary to existing U.S. immigration law. It is the product of the Obama administration’s executive order where he, President Obama, disagreed with current law.

 

“I, and I believe most Americans, are sympathetic to the children brought to this country at a young age, many only a few months old. However, at the same time, you have to remember that the parents are responsible for the children’s lack of legal status, not the government. The government has a responsibility to enforce the laws on the books.

 

“I believe that before passing any legislation that deals with DACA, Congress must first address border control and stopping illegal crossings at will. For Congress to do nothing about securing the border would be a disservice to our nation. It would be foolish to deal with one problem, without first addressing the underlying cause, which is a lack of border security.”
