U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) today released the following statement on President Obama's announcement on immigration this afternoon:

"Immigration reform is an important and complex issue that deserves a debate among the American people and in Congress. Today's announcement by President Obama is a politically-motivated power grab that does nothing to further the debate but instead adds additional confusion and uncertainty to our broken immigration system.

"Further, I find it interesting that after promising to enact comprehensive reform in the first year of his Presidency, the President chose to make this announcement in the middle of his heated re-election campaign.

"Rather than unilaterally deciding for the American people what they want and how they believe this problem should be addressed, I encourage the President and his Administration to finally reach out to Congress and propose legislation on this important issue."
