WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Frank Guinta released the following statement after passage of H.R. 240 which reverses the President’s unilateral, executive orders on amnesty, enhances border security, provides for stringent oversight, increases transparency within the Department of Homeland Security and bolsters immigration customs enforcement:
“In the Granite State, we believe deeply in the rule of law and the system of checks and balances. Unfortunately, the President’s unlawful executive orders run counter to this. I made a promise to Granite Staters to uphold our Constitution and work diligently to strengthen and reform our broken immigration system. The passage of H.R. 240 is a common-sense first step in modernizing our system to reward those who enter our borders the lawfully while holding those whom break our laws accountable.”
