WASHINGTON D.C. - Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled to uphold the injunction originally issued by a Texas federal judge, which prohibits the implementation of the President's Executive Amnesty plan. Congressman Hice applauded the Court's decision and issued the following statement in regards to the ruling: 

"I am very pleased that the Court's decision rightly upholds the injunction against President Obama's Executive Amnesty plan. It's astounding that a President who specialized in Constitutional law has routinely flouted our Constitution; in this matter by attempting to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants without the consent of Congress. We need immigration reform not Executive Amnesty. I am proud that Georgia is one of many states leading the charge in an effort to defend our Constitution by holding the Administration accountable through the Courts. "

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help people with federal problems. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a person’s behalf to answer questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Please know that I cannot force an agency to act in favor of a constituent. However, I can help communicate the circumstances and request that they take appropriate actions to assist you.
