California Governor Jerry Brown (D) has accused Americans opposed to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants of being “un-Christian.”
Brown, who has declared that all illegal immigrants from Mexico are “welcome” in California, made his remarks after a White House meeting on Friday while discussing the lawsuit that a majority of the states filed against Obama’s executive amnesty.
“They are taking a stand against a very large group of people who tens of millions of Americans identify with and sympathize with,” he reportedly said, according to the Huffington Post. “I would say the Republican position at best is troglodyte and at worst un-Christian.”
Brown, who recently declared that “California stands firmly with the White House” against the lawsuit, blasted Republican governors who joined the lawsuit against Obama’s executive amnesty.
The Obama administration halted its executive amnesty program after a federal judge issued a temporary injunction against it. The Obama administration this week asked the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn that injunction.
