NH GOP - FLIP FLOP: SHAHEEN BLOCKS STAND ALONE LEGISLATION TO STOP OBAMA IMMIGRATION EXECUTIVE ORDERS 

NHGOP Calls On Senate Candidate Hassan To Take Position
 

Concord - Senator Jeanne Shaheen today flip-flopped on her promise to oppose President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders on immigration by voting to block a stand-alone bill to unravel them. During her 2014 campaign, Shaheen said she "would not support" President Obama's executive orders and voted with Ted Cruz to block them.

"Its clear that Senator Shaheen's pledge to oppose President Obama's unconstitutional executive orders on immigration was nothing more than a phony election year promise. Senator Shaheen's dishonest flip-flop on the president's illegal executive orders is shameful and proves that she deliberalty lied to voters about her actual position on this issue," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.

 

Four Senate Democrats - Joe Donnelly (D-IN), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Claire McCaskill (D-MO) joined with Republicans in the unsuccessful effort to advance the legislation to block the president's executive orders.

 

The NHGOP also called on unannounced Senate candidate Maggie Hassan - who last weekend called on Congress to pass a homeland security bill (Associated Press, 2/23/15) - to take a position on the bill.

"If likely Senate Candidate Hassan wants to start weighing in on federal legislation, she needs to tell Granite Staters how she would vote on efforts to block the unconstitutional Obama immigration executive orders. Maggie Hassan owes her constituents an answer," said Horn.
