Congressman Pat Tiberi (R-OH) released the following statement after the Trump administration's announcement to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“President Obama’s unconstitutional DACA program was one of the most egregious examples of his executive overreach. The Trump administration’s decision to phase out DACA is good news for the rule of law.
 
“As the son of immigrants who legally came to the United States from Italy, I have seen the success story of legal immigration firsthand. In order to ensure this country remains a beacon of hope we must adhere to the Constitution, which empowers Congress to write immigration laws, not the executive branch. Congress has six months to act. This is an opportunity for us to identify needed solutions that are fair and orderly for Dreamers who didn’t choose to break our laws and know no other home than America.”
