GOP Whip Scalise: No Exec Amnesty, Guest Workers

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) promised to oppose any executive orders to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants already in the country on Thursday’s “Laura Ingraham Show.”

“I am strongly opposed to any form of amnesty, including, especially executive amnesty,” he declared. And “he [Obama] can’t re-write laws.”

Scalise also called on the president to release his immigration plan before the election, saying “you said you were going to be the most transparent president in our country’s history, here’s your opportunity, tell us right now what your plan is.” 

When Scalise was asked about bringing in foreign workers, particularly to work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math), Scalise said he would “definitely” lead the fight to oppose bringing more foreign workers into the US.
