DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s Statement on House GOP

Washington, DC – DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz released the following statement on the House GOP:

“Republicans can’t sue the President one day, accusing him of executive overreach, and then the next day cynically request he take action where they’ve failed to do so. There should be no doubt that Republicans are concerned only with scoring political points and shifting blame for their failed do-nothing Republican Congress.

“By ceding control of the House agenda to “Speaker” Ted Cruz, the far-right Republicans have shown their true colors. If they truly cared about finding solutions to our broken immigration system, they could pass the bipartisan Senate bill or fund President Obama’s border request. Instead, their priority is to round up and deport kids, hurt the immigrant community at all costs, and stand in the way of any progress on actual reform.”
