WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s 4-4 decision in United States vs. Texas:

“The Supreme Court’s decision reflects the separation of powers principle in our Constitution that Congress writes the laws, and the President enforces those laws,” said Rep. Newhouse. “The Supreme Court has spoken but today's decision does not resolve the issue. The American people expect Congress to work together to secure our borders, adhere to the rule of law, offer a humane solution to those living in the shadows, modernize our visa system, and bolster the economy. I am committed to fixing our broken immigration system once and for all.”
