Press Release

Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in United States v. Texas, which upholds the lower court’s decision that the President’s use of executive action on immigration is unlawful:

“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is a victory for the Constitution. By declaring the President’s plan to provide amnesty to illegal aliens unconstitutional and void, we have protected the separation of powers and defended the American people from overreaching executive action. The President doesn’t write laws, Congress does.”
