In the first evidence of political blowback against the failure of Congress to fund the southern border wall, a leading immigration group has pulled its prior endorsement of President Donald Trump.
Americans For Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) was an early supporter of Trump in the 2016 presidential election. Formed in 2004, the volunteer group has been a staunch opponent of illegal immigration and amnesty for illegals.
In a letter posted on its website, ALIPAC spelled out its reasons for pulling the endorsement, while acknowledging the decision may not sit well with Trump supporters.
