Republican U.S. Rep. Doug Lamborn took an accusatory tone Tuesday after President Trump's decision to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, blaming the administration of former President Obama for dismantling the country’s immigration laws.
Lamborn expressed hope that Congress can “find meaningful solutions to this difficult problem,” noting that solutions should “uphold the rule of law, protect our country, and ensure fairness in our immigration processes.”
“I’m encouraged by the President’s commitment to cracking down on illegal immigration, securing our borders, and reversing the unconstitutional DACA program,” Lamborn said in a statement. “I have always opposed any type of amnesty and will continue to do so.”
Republican U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton also blamed the Obama administration for unilaterally creating the DACA program “without going through the legislative process.” He applauded the Trump administration’s “commitment to the rule of law.”
