Senate Judiciary demands answers on green cards


Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are demanding that the Department of Homeland Security explain leaked documents indicating officials are scheming over how to evade a federal judge's injunction against President Obama's immigration actions.

The group, led by Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, called for DHS to explain the origin and status of internal memos published Monday.

"Granting employment authorization to illegal immigrants under the proposed scheme would accomplish, by different means, the de facto legalization of the population intended to be legalized by the enjoined DAPA program," Republicans charged.
