Sessions Blasts Obama for Illegal Voting Comments.
Sen. Jeff Sessions, one of the leading opponents in Congress of illegal immigration, blasted President Obama Sunday for comments in which he appeared to condone non-citizen voting.
Obama made the comments Thursday in an interview with actress Gina Rodriguez.
“The interviewer proposed a radical and illegal action, which the president had a duty to condemn.”“I am shocked that the president of the United States — who is the chief law enforcement officer for the nation and to whom all federal law enforcement officers report — failed to strongly and immediately object to a statement by an interviewer that unlawful immigrants can and should vote in U.S. elections,” Sessions (R-Ala.) said in a prepared statement. “The interviewer proposed a radical and illegal action, which the president had a duty to condemn.”
