AG Pick: No Citizenship for Undocumented

At a confirmation hearing for U.S. attorney general, nominee Loretta Lynch defended President Obama’s decision to shelter millions of undocumented immigrants but said they have no right to citizenship under the law. She told the hearing that under the administration’s policy, the Department of Homeland Security focuses on deporting “the most dangerous of the undocumented immigrants among us.” This, she said, “seems to be a reasonable way to marshal limited resources to deal with the problem.”

Lynch also said the NSA’s surveillence prorams are “constitutional and effective,” while waterboarding is torture “and thus illegal.”
