The Uphold the OATH Resolution is similar to Congressman Rice’s Stop This Overreaching Presidency (STOP) Resolution, H. Res.442, introduced last December.  WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Tom Rice (R-SC) introduced H. Res.772, the Uphold the Oath Americans Trust and Honor (OATH) Resolution.  This legislation would authorize legal action against the Administration for President Obama’s latest immigration overreach.

“Article I, Section 8, Clause 4 of the Constitution grants Congress the responsibility to craft our country’s immigration laws,” said Congressman Rice.  “Furthermore, Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution states that the President shall take care that our nation’s laws are faithfully executed.  President Obama has acknowledged these roles and took an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution.  Instead of upholding this oath, the President has repeatedly chosen to ignore it.”
