Here’s an excerpt from the Asheville Citizen-Times article:
ASHEVILLE — The Republican congressman representing most of the city called an immigration reform plan emerging from a handful of U.S. senators “more backroom deal-making.”
“What’s needed now is an open and fair legislative process, not more deals cut behind closed doors,” said U.S. Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-Lake Norman.
McHenry said he would reserve judgment of the bipartisan plan until after the committee process.
“I continue to believe that any sensible immigration reform must start with securing our borders,” he said.
