GOP Introduces Bill To Block Obama's New Immigration Policy
Rep. Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.), who is the son of former Vice President Dan Quayle, introduced the "Prohibiting Back-Door Amnesty Act of 2012."
“President Obama and Secretary Napolitano’s decision to end the enforcement of many of our nation’s immigration laws is stunning in both its arrogance and shortsightedness,” Quayle said in a statement.
The bill demonstrates a growing divide in the GOP over immigration issues. Republican Sen. Marco Rubio was working on a bill to grant special status to illegal immigrants brought here as children but shelved that effort after Obama announced his new legislation.
Quayle is facing a tough primary reelection in Arizona against fellow GOP Rep. David Schweikert.
