"More than 200,000 Tennesseans remain out of work, but rather than prioritize their plight, the president is putting the interests of those who have broken our laws ahead of them. Why should unemployed Tennesseans have to compete with illegal immigrants for jobs? And why should those who break our laws to come here be rewarded while so many wait to come here legally? This is wrong and the President does not have the authority to change our immigration laws without Congress," said Rep. Diane Black, Tennessee Republican. "The Obama Presidency has been a disaster and can't end soon enough. But in the meantime, I will work with my colleagues in Congress to fight the President's unconstitutional power grab."
