Washington, D.C. – Representative Jody Hice (R-GA) today commented on the Department of Justice’s announcement regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy, commonly known as DACA:

“In creating the DACA program, President Obama self-admittedly exceeded his executive authority. President Trump is correct to restore the Constitutional prerogative of Congress to write our laws and bring clarity to our Nation’s immigration policy.

“I agree with the President that phasing down this program creates a window of opportunity for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reform to prevent future uncertainty regarding the status of those in our country, most especially the children. As a Nation built on the rule of law, such reform must first and foremost serve our citizens and provide for their security, and those laws must then be enforced. I look forward to working with my colleagues and the President to find long-term, commonsense solutions to the many immigration issues facing our country.”

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.
