(CNSNews.com) - Before voting to confirm Loretta Lynch as the next U.S. attorney general, the Senate must ask her for a "definite statement" on whether she supports President Obama's executive amnesty; and whether she will enforce immigration law as written by Congress, says Peter Kirsanow, a Republican member of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission.
In a March 14 letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Kirsanow says Lynch "should not be confirmed" if she fails to explain exactly where she stands on Obama's executive actions and how she will enforce the law as it is written.
Kirsanow previously expressed concern that Lynch, during her confirmation hearing, stated that "everyone in this country, regardless of how they came here," shares the same "right and obligation to work."
"This statement is contrary to U.S. immigration laws," Kirsanow wrote in his letter to McConnell. "Illegal aliens are prohibited from working in this country. Yet the nominee for the office ultimately charged with enforcing those laws asserts otherwise."
