Webster: Democrats Are Choosing to Play Politics

Washington, DC – Florida Congressman Daniel Webster, R-Clermont, released the following statement on why he is voting no on H.J. Res. 46.

“For years, President Obama flagrantly defied the Constitutional Separation of Powers and Democrats didn’t care.  A national declaration of emergency was not my preferred route to securing our borders.  Unfortunately, over the years Congress has given away much of our congressional authority and a close review of federal law shows the President is on solid legal ground.  Once again, Democrats are choosing to play petty politics over securing our borders.”
