Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Senator Jeanne Shaheen's flip-flop on President Obama's executive orders on immigration:
"Jeanne Shaheen continues to play politics with Department of Homeland Security funding by voting to block legislation that will fund the agency and unravel President Obama's unconstitutional executive actions on immigration that she once opposed. During her 2014 reelection campaign, Senator Shaheen claimed to oppose the president's executive actions and even voted with Senator Ted Cruz to block them. Granite Staters are smart enough to see through Jeanne Shaheen's dishonest flip-flop and realize that she is a hypocritical Washington politician who blindly takes orders from the Obama Administration."
