DeMint: Will be tough for Obama to get GOP behind his immigration reform

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) indicated Sunday that President Barack
Obama will have a difficult time receiving GOP backing for immigration
reform.

DeMint said that he would not consider immigration reform before
the U.S. borders are secured. DeMint has introduced legislation to
complete the fence along the Southwest border.

Obama is
holding border security “hostage to his political agenda,” DeMint said
on Fox News Sunday. He criticized Obama’s efforts to reform immigration
as giving “amnesty” and  “voting rights for those who came here
illegally.”
