Durbin calls for Senate hearings on Trump's immigration orders
by Rebecca Savransky
Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) is calling on Republicans to hold hearings on President Trump's immigration orders.
In a letter sent to Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas), the chairman of the Judiciary Committee's subpanel on immigration, Durbin requested a series of hearings on the president's recent "immigration and refugee executive orders."
"These executive orders, which have dramatic implications for our immigration system, are inconsistent with America's heritage as a nation of immigrants and a safe haven for those fleeing persecution," Durbin wrote in the letter.
