McConnell Statement on Federal Court Ruling Blocking President’s Immigration Executive Overreach

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement today after a federal district court issued  a preliminary injunction against President Obama’s immigration executive overreach: 

"This ruling underscores what the President has already acknowledged publicly 22 times: He doesn’t have the authority to take the kinds of actions he once referred to as 'ignoring the law' and 'unwise and unfair.' Senate Democrats--especially those who've voiced opposition to the President’s executive overreach—should end their partisan filibuster of Department of Homeland Security funding."
