MARYVILLE, June 23 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on today’s Supreme Court ruling on immigration:
"In April, I joined 42 other senators asking the Supreme Court to block President Obama’s overreach on immigration, so I’m glad to see that the lower court’s decision will stand. It’s up to Congress to make the laws and address our broken immigration system. Our Founders did not want a king and the American people do not want a president who acts like one.”
Because today’s Supreme Court ruling was 4-4, the decision of the lower court on the president’s executive actions on immigration stands.
