McIntyre hits GOP rival for supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants

Democratic Congressman Mike McIntyre is hitting his GOP rival for supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants in a new TV ad.

The ad debuts as Americans for Legal Immigration PAC endorsed McIntyre in the 7th District, despite saying earlier this year it wouldn't support a candidate in the race.

Anti-illegal immigration advocate wants to overthrow GOP legislative leaders

A prominent anti-illegal immigration advocate is soliciting support from state lawmakers to remove House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate leader Phil Berger from power.

"I am getting more traction than I thought I would," said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration's political action committee. "Many of the Republican lawmakers are dissappointed to see them imitate their predecessors."

Gheen's problem with the top Republican legislative leaders came after a special House immigration committee delayed any action until the next legislative session.

"Speaker Thom Tillis and President (Pro Tem) Phil Berger are protecting illegal immigrants and those that employ them," Gheen said in a recent interview. "Immigration legislation is one of the issues that led to Democrats' overthrow."
