House Republicans doubled down on their failed strategy of obstructing and opposing President Obama's every move – this time by formally opposing executive actions which would benefit millions of children, parents and families who have come to this nation and especially to Florida. President Obama's executive actions fall well within previous executive actions by presidents of both parties, and would help keep families together. Instead of standing with families, my Republican colleagues, many of whom tout their so-called "pro-family" credentials, chose bitter and divisive partisanship over commonsense reforms that would keep our nation safer and lift up millions of people.
