 Rep. Loudermilk (R-GA) issued the following statement regarding the Trump Administration's announcement to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program:

“Congress must secure our borders, overhaul the convoluted immigration system, and effectively enforce the laws. Tweaks by Congress, and executive orders by various administrations, have created an immigration policy that favors illegal immigration and punishes those who want to legally come here to work. President Barack Obama's executive order was outside the constitutional authority of the executive branch, and I agree with President Trump's decision to reverse the order and call on Congress to fundamentally reform our immigration policy."
