Orrin Hatch's Public Statements on Issue: Immigration

Office: U.S. Senate (UT) - Sr, Republican President Pro Tempore
Date Title
Jan. 22, 2018 Tweet - "HATCH: I've stuck my neck out on immigration issues year after year, and I have more to show for it than most. So the idea that I don't care because I'd rather do this right than simply do it now is ridiculous. Why are Democrats trying to poison the well? #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 21, 2018 Tweet - "What an interesting quote from a House Democrat, via @alweaver22: "The charge "the Democrats shut down the government to protect illegal immigrants' is a loser." #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 21, 2018 Tweet - "It would appear that the Senate Minority Leader's mind has changed about shutting the government down over immigration reform, and the virtue of "governmental chaos." #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 21, 2018 Tweet - "Illuminating read: Chuck Schumer in 2013: If Dems shut down the government over immigration that would be "a politics of idiocy' #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 21, 2018 Tweet - "We're imposing imaginary deadlines on ourselves that will leave everyone worse off--CHIP recipients and Dreamers alike." #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "We all agree with the need to find a responsible solution on #DACA. Many of us are working on a solution that can find broad support. But a deal on #DACA is a deal worth doing right, not as part of a wholly unnecessary hostage negotiation. #SchumerShutdown #DemocratShutdown"
Jan. 20, 2018 Tweet - "CNN Poll on our choices today: There is no need to choose between funding the government, and fixing DACA later. There IS a choice between funding CHIP (which expired yesterday) and shutting down government over DACA. #SchumerShutdown …"
Jan. 19, 2018 Tweet - "CNN Poll: Avoiding a shutdown is more important than continuing DACA. But good news: We can do both because DACA is not on deadline today. This is a manufactured crisis. #SchumerShutdown"
Jan. 18, 2018 Tweet - "We all agree that we need to find a path forward on #DACA and those conversations are ongoing. But shutting down the government and keeping funding from CHIP over a false cliff-- one that has nothing to do with program deadlines-- is not the way to do it. #utpol"
Jan. 17, 2018 Tweet - "Any discussion of merit-based immigration should focus on high-skilled immigration, targeting the best and brightest from around the world, regardless of their country of origin. Next week Senator Hatch will reintroduce legislation to do just that. #ISquared #utpol"
Jan. 16, 2018 Tweet - "In this morning's Judiciary Committee hearing, Senator Hatch is discussing critical reforms to visa programs, the path forward for the #DREAMer population, cybersecurity, and border security with @SecNielsen. #utpol …"
