No Blank Check for Amnesty

ATLANTA – Administration officials have indicated President Obama may announce sweeping unilateral actions that could give work permits to as many as five million illegal immigrants as soon as next week. Heritage Action released the following statement from chief executive officer Michael A. Needham:

“The conversation in Washington today is disconnected from the message delivered by voters just ten days ago.  President Obama’s amnesty policy was on the ballot and it was thoroughly rejected.  Unless Congress preempts or blocks the President’s promised executive action, a long-term funding bill is little more than a blank check for amnesty.”
