Illinois Republicans react to Obama’s immigration plan

Posted by wlpo on November 21, 2014

An immigration plan that would allow adult, illegal immigrants with American children or children here legally to avoid deportation would do so without receiving approval from Congress. That has Illinois’ Republican congressional delegation angry.

President Barack Obama explained his executive actions during primetime television last night. He also challenged the Senate and Congress to pass a bill.

Representatives Adam Kinzinger and Aaron Schock were among a group of congressmen that call Obama’s plan, “a lawless move that will ultimately do much more harm than good.”

They say Congress should take the lead on immigration reform, securing our borders, and improving the visa system.
