I applaud the Supreme Court's ruling in U.S. v. Texas. This decision is a victory for our Constitution and the rule of law. Moreover, it marks another stinging defeat for President Obama’s seven year legacy of executive overreach and ‘going it alone’ by ignoring Congress’s role as a co-equal branch of our government. While today’s decision is a victory, this fight is not over. I find it deeply troubling that half the court would support the President’s lawless executive amnesty, further highlighting the urgent need for a conservative jurist to replace the late Antonin Scalia on our nation’s highest court. http://mchenry.house.gov/news/documentsingle.aspx?DocumentID=398229
