Scalise to Obama: Don’t Wait for the Election on Immigration

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) challenged Barack Obama to release his immigration plan before the election. “If it was a good plan that he was thinking of doing, why would he wait until right after the election?” Scalise asked. “It really raises a lot of red flags and it makes you wonder just how bad is the president’s approach going to be on immigration, if he wants to shield it, hide it from the voters until after the election.” It’s critical that there be a plan, Scalise added, because of the current terrorist threat. “It’s not only about immigration, this is a national security issue,” he said. “You don’t want to have a porous border where anybody can just come across and nobody knows who is coming in.” Worse, there are Americans fighting within the ranks of ISIL who won’t need to cross the Rio Grande to get here.
