Shaheen opponents go after her votes on immigration
Brown said Shaheen has both supported and opposed President Obama’s executive action concerning young, illegal immigrants. His campaign cited a Washington Post article in which a Shaheen adviser said New Hampshire’s senior senator did not support a “piecemeal approach issued by executive order.”
Brown supporters, state Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, a Republican, and Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard criticized Shaheen’s position in a conference call Thursday.
“We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws,” he said.
Bradley called Shaheen a “loyal and steady supporter of President Obama’s amnesty policies,” and cited her support for a policy that defers deportation for certain young people in the country illegally. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival policy was established in June 2012.
