Some Senate Democrats Balk at Obama’s Executive Amnesty

Some Senate Democrats Balk at Obama’s Executive Amnesty

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Several Democratic senators are uncomfortable with President Barack Obama’s decision to use executive action to make immigration reform, raising the possibility of open, bipartisan resistance to his plan.

The senators, most from conservative states, objected to Obama’s unilateral approach, saying on Wednesday that they preferred Congress to take the lead with legislation. Democrats should try again to work with Republicans in Congress to set reforms in law, many said.

No Democrats went so far as to say they were ready to break with the president, but several were critical of his go-it-alone approach.

“I wish he wouldn’t do it,” Democratic Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia said. “I think we ought to work through this process, and with the new elections and the results of the elections, we ought to try in January to see if we can find a pathway to get something accomplished.”
