Inhofe Statement on President's DACA Decision

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) made the following statement on the President’s decision to end the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“President Obama wrongfully implemented DACA, doing it by executive fiat instead of by working with Congress to change the law. I appreciate President Trump’s decision to correct this, demonstrating our shared commitment to upholding the legal immigration process. Simply put—the creation of the program by the Obama administration was unconstitutional, unilateral and, sadly, resulted in thousands of families sending young children to make the dangerous journey across the U.S.-Mexico border alone. President Trump’s actions today restore the rule of law to our immigration system and enable Congress to meaningfully address border security and our immigration policies through the legislative process.”
