    BLACK asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute and to revise and extend her remarks.) Mrs. BLACK. Mr. Speaker, on Tuesday, President Obama came to Nashville to defend his unconstitutional immigration overreaches, but Tennesseans aren't buying it.

    I asked my constituents what questions they would ask the President during his visit to the Volunteer State, and the response was overwhelming. Penny in Springfield asked, ``Why has he chosen to ignore the voice of the people on the immigration issue?'' Janice in Gordonsville asked, ``What does he say to the legal immigrants who obeyed the law to become citizens?'' And Kimberly in White House simply says, ``I want to know why our laws are no longer valid.'' My constituents said it best. We are a Nation of laws, and this lawless immigration overreach must not stand.
