Congressman Randy Neugebauer Reacts to President Obama’s New Immigration Order [AUDIO]
On Monday's edition of Lubbock's First News, Congressman Randy Neugebauer talked with Chad Hasty and Rex Andrew about the latest issues coming out of Washington.
The biggest issue in DC right now is the new immigration policy President Barack Obama introduced on Friday, which would grant immunity for deportation for people who were brought to the United States before the age of 16, and are younger than 30. Neugebauer said he was "extremely disappointed" by the new order, calling is an obvious political move and another example of the Obama administration going around Congress to carry their agenda forward. Neugebauer also called the order an affront to the people who wish to enter the country legally.
The President, with the sweep of a pen, has said..."Hey, you people who are doing it the right way, I'm thumbing my nose up at you. And to the people who have decided to break the law, we're going to you a special concession." I just don't think that's what this country is about.
Neugebauer said that, in order to face the immigration problem, there has to be a policy that will be "vigorously" and would reward those who immigrate into the country the right way.
Neugabauer also spoke about the progress of the Farm Bill. He said that he is not pleased with crop insurance on the Senate version of the bill, and would like to see a "full-scale" scope for all kinds of crop insurance.
