Obama: I'll Veto Stand-Alone Immigration Repeal

Wednesday, 25 Feb 2015 08:03 PM

President Barack Obama says he would veto a stand-alone measure in the Senate repealing his executive actions on immigration.

Obama is answering questions at a town hall meeting in Miami hosted by the Spanish-language TV network Telemundo. He says he's "absolutely committed" to his policy of prioritizing deportations of felons, rather than immigrants who have lived illegally in the U.S. for years.

Republicans have sought to use a Homeland Security funding bill to repeal Obama's directives. But with a partial agency shutdown looming, the Senate is now looking to vote separately on funding and Obama's immigration measures.

Obama says instead of holding national security funding hostage, lawmakers should fund the agency and then pass a comprehensive immigration fix.
