Gowdy Hammers Administration Over Immigration Action

Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., criticized the White House for its use of prosecutorial discretion during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday on President Barack Obama’s executive orders on immigration.

In a heated exchange with Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, Gowdy challenged Hincapié on the limits of Obama’s prosecutorial discretion under the law while also warning Hincapié to not link Republican concerns over immigration to race.
