Republicans react to new immigration policy
SOUTH CAROLINA: Republicans around the nation are making it no secret that they are vehemently outraged at the fact President Obama has implemented a new policy that will allow ‘children of immigrants’ to stay, live, and even work in the country as long as they meet certain requirements.
S. Carolina rep Lindsay Graham had this to say about the new policy:
“Many illegal immigrants will falsely claim they came here as children and the federal government has no way to check whether their claims are true,” Smith said in a statement. “And once these illegal immigrants are granted deferred action, they can then apply for a work permit, which the administration routinely grants 90% of the time.”
