Below is a statement from Congressman Ribble on his amendment:

"The Constitution provides Congress the authority to write and pass laws. The President is tasked with implementing and enforcing those laws. Any President - regardless of political party - is required to enforce all existing laws, not simply pick and choose which laws they want to follow. That is why I worked with a handful of House Republicans to offer this amendment today and stop the President from taking this action."
