Sen. Wicker: Obama's Exec Action Will Create Distrust and Confrontation
Incoming Chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), joined Maria Bartiromo on "Sunday Morning Futures" today to discuss Congress' agenda for 2015.
Wicker said the Republican-led Senate plans to get right to work and actually do what the Senate is supposed to do and push through legislation.
"Our laws are intended to be passed by the Congress, signed by the president and worked through with consensus, no matter which party controls the White House or which party controls Congress," Wicker said.
He asserted that the president needs to work across the aisle, particularly on the issue of immigration reform.
"What we have is a border crisis, and the president needs to help us work through that and secure the border and then go on to do comprehensive reform after that."
Wicker said that if Obama takes executive action to offer amnesty to millions of people living in the U.S. illegally, it will create "a climate of distrust and confrontation."
