Larsen ‘Deeply Disappointed’ by United States v. Texas Decision

Jun 24, 2016 Issues: Immigration Reform

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Rep. Rick Larsen (WA-02) today released the following statement after the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision on United States v. Texas, which left a lower court order on the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans Program in place:

“I am deeply disappointed by today’s decision. Our country’s immigration system should focus resources on those who pose threats to public safety not tearing families apart. It is now clearer than ever that a lasting solution to immigration must come from Congress.”
