    I voted against H.R. 5759 because, although I strongly believe that it is unconstitutional to have immigration policy made through executive orders and without the consent of Congress, this legislation will only mislead the American people into believing that we are taking care of the problem when the only way to address President Obama's overreach is either through the U.S. Supreme Court or through the appropriation's process.

    U.S. House of Representative Mike Coffman (R-CO) released the below statement today after voting against legislation to prohibit the expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program: "While I oppose unilateral action and executive overreach by the President, I am voting no because I think the Congress missed an opportunity to pass DACA into law.

    House Republicans are so wary of overhauling the nation’s immigration laws this year that only five are cosponsoring Rep. Mike Coffman’s bill to provide a path to citizenship for illegal aliens who serve in the U.S. military. “I think the GOP is still very cautious of doing anything on the issue,” said one Republican official.
