Five Questions Sen. James Lankford Wants Obama to Answer About His Immigration Actions
by Kate Scanlon, Daily Signal
Sen. James Lankford will send a letter to the White House on Thursday asking the president to clarify his remarks that there will be “consequences” for government officials who do not comply with his executive order on immigration.
This is the second attempt Lankford, R-Okla., has made to have President Barack Obama explain his statement.
During remarks at a town hall at Florida International University in February, the president was asked about his executive order in light of a ruling by a U.S. District Court allowing deportations to continue.
“Look, the bottom line is, is that if somebody is working for ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] and there is a policy and they don’t follow the policy, there are going to be consequences to it,” he said.
