Senate Democrats: We’ve Got Obama’s Back on Immigration Action
At a Thursday news conference ahead of President Barack Obama’s prime-time address outlining his immigration executive action, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid argued that in the past 60 years, every president has taken immigration-related executive action.
“This isn’t anything new and unique, it’s been done many times,” Reid said. “As indicated in the meeting last night at the White House, we told the president and we’re telling him before all these TV cameras, we’ve got his back.”
Obama is scheduled to announce his proposal at 8 p.m.
