AUSTIN -- The Obama administration today announced the government will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the United States as children. Texas Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples issued the following statement:

“Pandering is not leadership. This short-sighted, vote-chasing, Band-Aid policy only makes the problem of a porous border and illegal immigration worse, not better. President Obama is chasing votes at the peril of our economy.

“This fragmented policy differs drastically from the approach just adopted by the agriculture leaders from 15 southern states and would work to increase illegal entry instead of reversing this dangerous trend. This is an affront to the millions of people who immigrated to America legally.

“At a time when we have an estimated minimum of 11 million people here illegally, this piecemeal approach to immigration reform is a green light from our president that it is acceptable to flaunt our laws and disregard our borders. This is a completely irresponsible approach and shows a total lack of understanding of the critical nature of these failed policies.

“The president is circumventing Congress and the legislative process set up by our Founding Fathers. Congress or the courts should step up and stop this fraudulent manipulation of our immigration system.”

At least someone is doing something about this situation.
The party of "NO" sure isn't doing anything except complaining.
