Washington, DC – Rep. Barbara Comstock (VA-10) today issued the following statement after the administration’s announcement on DACA today:

“President Obama’s executive order in 2012 regarding DACA overstepped his constitutional authority and I appreciate that the President has now properly put the authority to pass laws back in the hands of Congress. We know our immigration system is broken. The House and Senate along with the administration must now come together and find common ground that leads to bipartisan solutions that not only address the DACA issue, but also our critical border security and enforcement issues. Many will be tempted to devolve into partisan fights over this, but the President has provided a six month period to work together on these important issues.”
