Al Sharpton 2

“[W]hile the president is moving in this that all of us agree is politically wise but is also something he has a core belief in and has always talked about, congressional Republicans are pounding the President’s immigration, uh, bi-, decision and they’re coming with legislation. For example, yesterday they pushed two bills, one that had 11 co-sponsors and it would require the Department of Homeland Security ‘make sure illegal immigrants don’t receive Medicare, Social Security or food stamps.’

So, not only do you have the President making an affirmative step, you have Republicans in the Congress that are continuing to go after a very, very regressive kind of policy on human levels. We talking about Social Security, Medicare, food stamps. We talking about people that need help here.”
