President Trump’s acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney once said he’d be willing to discuss giving partial amnesty to a portion of illegal immigrants and was “disappointed” more Republicans would not consider it as a pillar of immigration reform.
“I am more than willing to have a discussion about allowing at least part of the 11 million people here illegally to have some type of status,” Mulvaney, a founding member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus and a former Republican House member, said in Spanish at an hourlong 2014 town hall in his South Carolina district. “I’m just disappointed that more people in my party don’t want to do that.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Mulvaney’s district was reliant on alien and low-skilled labor for agricultural and economic production. Prior to the town hall, Mulvaney was receiving pressure from farmers, manufacturers, and other outside groups about the need for legal immigrants who could work low-wage jobs within the district.
Still, the comments could come under scrutiny after Mulvaney on Friday was named the acting replacement for outgoing chief of staff John Kelly. The president’s choice was immediately called into question after a video surfaced of Mulvaney calling Trump a ” terrible human being” days before he defeated Hillary Clinton in November 2016.
