Westmoreland: Obama should change law ‘in a legal and proper manner’

DORAVILLE — President Obama’s decision to stop deporting illegal aliens “shows his complete disregard for our laws,” one Georgia congressman said.

“If he does not like the law, he should work with Congress to change the law in a legal and proper manner,” U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland, R-Ga., said in a news release. “Until then, instructing federal officers not to enforce the laws on the books only encourages others to break our laws.

“We have an illegal immigration problem in this country because we have a broken legal immigration system. But that doesn’t mean we should take the easy route and just ignore the problem,” Westmorelamd said. “Instead, we need to work to fix it. Of course, the campaigner-in-chief doesn’t have time to actually legislate –he’s too busy giving speeches and collecting campaign checks. So he’s decided he will just dictate law from the campaign trail rather than bother with actually following the rule of law established in the Constitution. It’s absolutely unacceptable.”
