Press Release

Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) issued the following statement regarding the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

Byrne said: “I applaud the Trump Administration’s decision to rescind the DACA program. As has been shown by court rulings on similar programs, DACA is unconstitutional, has no justifiable legal basis, and is a blatant example of executive overreach. Under Attorney General Jeff Sessions and President Trump, it is clear our nation’s laws will be enforced, and that is good news for our system of government and for the American people.

“Congress certainly needs to fix our nation’s broken immigration system, but that must start with securing our borders, boosting internal security, and putting the American people first. Congress, and only Congress, can pass those laws, but I would welcome the advice of the President and the Attorney General on what those laws should provide.”
