GOP Senators Attack Obama for Considering More Ways to Weaken Immigration Law
Over 20 Republican Senators are pushing the Administration on its violations of federal law with regards to immigration:
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and 21 Republican senators accused President Obama of trying to further dilute immigration law Thursday.
“Clearly, the urgent task facing your administration is to improve immigration enforcement, not to look for new ways to weaken it,” the senators wrote in a letter to Obama. “Since 2009, your administration has issued policy directives and memoranda incrementally nullifying immigration enforcement in the interior of the United States – to the point that unless individuals in the country illegally are apprehended, tried, and convicted for a felony or other serious offense, they are free to live and work in the country.”
In March, Obama ordered the Department of Homeland Security to conduct a an immigration “enforcement review.” Since then, reports have indicated that the administration is looking to further reduce deportations, or as the senators wrote, the changes under consideration “represent a near complete abandonment of basic immigration enforcement.”
Thursday’s letter comes as the Obama administration is already under fire for his administration’s current immigration policies.
