Washington D.C. – Today, Congressman Hice released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s 4-4 split decision in the United States v. Texas case:

“Time after time, the President has ignored the separation of powers and the role of Congress to legislate. Today’s decision by the Supreme Court was a victory and a reminder that the President and his Administration cannot unilaterally rewrite our Nation’s immigration laws.

These executive actions clearly exceed his Constitutional authority, and I am proud that the State of Texas, along with 25 other states, including Georgia, initiated a lawsuit challenging this overreach. The Court’s action sent a clear message that the President is not above the law or our Constitution. I applaud this ruling, and I will continue to work with my colleagues to stop this President’s reckless executive fiats.”

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
