Wasserman Schultz Backs Broad Obama Action on Immigration

Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said President Barack Obama should use his executive power to grant work permits to millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally.

“The irresponsible thing to do is to do nothing,” the Florida congresswoman said today at a Bloomberg Government breakfast in Washington. “The president should do within the boundaries of his executive authority what he can do if Congress refuses to act.”
