A group of 22 senators, all but two of whom voted against a Senate-approved immigration reform bill, warned President Barack Obama Thursday in a letter that immigration changes his administration is considering would be “a near complete abandonment” of immigration enforcement. The letter also accused the president of taking actions that show “an astonishing disregard for the Constitution, rule of law, and the rights of American citizens and residents.” The letter follows a directive from Obama to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to review the administration’s enforcement practices to ensure they are humanely applied.
