Activists including a New Mexico Republican elected official and Stewart Rhodes, the founder of Oathkeepers spoke out Saturday afternoon in front of the White House about what they see as the unsolved issue of illegal immigration.
Opinions of President Trump were mixed at the event. While the group near-universally said they supported him in 2016, some expressed concern that he didn’t live up to his campaign promises on immigration. To that end, some say they will consider dropping their support in the 2020 election.
