Ex-Md. Gov. Ehrlich talks Homeland Security Budget, immigration
CONCORD - Former Maryland Governor Bob Ehrlich breaks from other potential 2016 GOP Presidential candidates when it comes to funding the Department of Homeland Security.
In his interview with NH1 Radio Tuesday, Ehrlich takes issue with the decision to attempt to pass a Department of Homeland Security budget with provisions that would block the President's Executive Order on Immigration. Ehrlich says while he also objects to the President's immigration plan, "I would have preferred a different strategy."
Ehrlich, who's making his fourth trip to the Granite State since last summer, believes the immigration matter should instead be settled by the judicial branch, pointing out that "the President is oh-fer when it comes to the courts". Last week a judge in Texas ruled against the President's Executive action.
Ehrlich also discussed his 2016 plans, saying while he doesn't have a timeline, he's been encouraged by his conversations in New Hampshire and expects to make a decision by the summertime.
