Congressman Bill Johnson (R-Marietta)  issued the following statement in response to a federal judge's decision to temporarily block President Obama's executive action on illegal immigration:

"President Obama has been rightly called out for stepping beyond the bounds of his executive authority in his effort to bypass Congress and unilaterally enact sweeping immigration policy.  Now, I'm hopeful that the Senate Democrats, currently blocking all funding for the Department of Homeland Security because the legislation does not contain money to fund the President's amnesty plan, will reconsider their position and join House and Senate Republicans to pass the important Homeland Security funding bill."
