Local lawmakers react to Obama’s plan for reform

ALBANY, N.Y. – Congressman Chris Gibson is calling President Obama’s plan for reform not only a mistake – but unconstitutional.

In a statement he says while “clearly our immigration system is broken but we need to work together to change the law. What the president is doing here instead is selectively choosing not to enforce the law, something he is duty-bound to do by his oath of office.” 
However, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand sided with the president – in a tweet she thanked him for his bold action to help immigrant families. She says it’s now up to Congress to act.
