A political action committee which backed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election has rescinded its endorsement of the president, claiming he failed to deliver on his immigration promises, The Washington Times reported.
Americans for Legal Immigration PAC maintained Trump has set the level of refugees too high, according to the newspaper.
In addition, the PAC said, he has not canceled President Barack Obama's 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, the Times reported.
"We were so hopeful that Donald Trump would be a man of his word because the campaign promises he made to Americans were the things America needs to do to survive and thrive, but unfortunately, Trump has made it clear he cannot be trusted on his most powerful campaign issue of stopping illegal immigration and amnesty," said Willian Gheen, the PAC's president.
Gheen had given Trump's immigration policy a grade of D, LifeZette reported.
"Mostly because of the fact that he lied to us," Gheen said, in explaining the grade. "He lied to us on core issues. It's disappointing and painful for us to say that."
