Governor Pence Statement on Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ Ruling on President’s Executive Action on Immigration

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today issued the following statement in response to the decision of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the injunction against President Obama’s executive action on immigration.


“We welcome the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling that the president cannot unilaterally change the law.  This lawsuit has never been about immigration.  It is about denying states such as ours the opportunity to be represented in policymaking through our elected members of Congress. This ruling is an important step in restoring the rule of law and proper balance in our constitutional system of government.”
