Immigration Reform News 2014: Obama Supporters See Backlash From Republicans
Christian Times | Dec 6, 2014
Immigration allies of President Obama are standing firm as they expect a backlash against Republican lawmakers who voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) only by the end of February.
The Republicans, who took over both congressional chambers, seek to oppose Obama’s contentious executive move to delay the deportation of millions of immigrants illegally staying in the country and to grant them new work permits.
“The idea that a partial shutdown of DHS is going to get Obama to cave on a signature second-term accomplishment is fantasy,” Politico.com quoted America’s Voice executive director Frank Sharry as saying.
