Washington, D.C. — Today, Rep. Mike Bost applauded the United States Supreme Court’s split decision that effectively upholds a lower court ruling against President Obama’s executive orders granting de facto amnesty for illegal immigrants. 

“Today’s ruling is a victory for the American people and the rule of law, and another blow to the Administration’s abuse of executive authority.  It might be tough for some to accept, but the bounds of the Constitution apply to the President just as it does to everyone else.  We will never be able to secure our nation until we start fully enforcing our immigration laws and protecting our borders.  Until then, our fight for the integrity of the Constitution continues.”

This ruling joins other court decisions that have overturned or delayed other major components of the Obama Administration’s agenda, including some of those targeting the coal industry.
