U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement after today’s decision from the U.S. Supreme Court on DACA.
"This is what happens when you don’t have a functioning Congress: We’re not doing our work so the Court again steps in and declares itself America’s Super-Legislature. It’s bad news for civic health that the Court regularly flexes legislative muscle it doesn’t have under our Constitution. Along with most Americans, I believe kids who were brought here years ago through no fault of their own shouldn’t live in fear of deportation – but that should be done via legislation. We need a law that gives us both border security and common sense immigration policy — and legislation comes from Congress, not the Court."
