Rep. Perry reacts to President Obama’s immigration reform plan
President Obama unveiled his plan for immigration reform, using his executive power to overhaul a system that hasn’t seen many changes in decades.
One part of his plan is to protect five million undocumented immigrants, allowing them to legally live and work in the U.S. for a period of up to three years. The president also wants immigrations officials to go after undocumented immigrants who are felons or criminals, or those who recently came across the border.
The President is choosing to make these changes without the approval of Congress, which has failed to pass any reform bills.
Representative Scott Perry (R-Pennsylvania 4th) spoke to FOX43 after the President’s address, offering his reaction to the plan.
