Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R), who’s competing in a closely watched Senate race, ignored a reporter’s question on Tuesday about whether he supports President TrumpDonald John TrumpPittsburgh mayor: Our priority is funerals not Trump’s visit Trump says he will respond to 'some' of Mueller's questions Trump: ‘Dishonest’ to say I called all media ‘enemy of the people’ MORE’s proposal to end birthright citizenship.
When a reporter from The Miami Herald asked Scott at a Tuesday press conference about Everglades restoration about Trump’s announcement that he planned to issue and executive order on the 14th Amendment, Scott walked away without answering the question.
“I believe legal immigration makes us a better and stronger country, but illegal immigration does the opposite. I have not seen the details of what the president is suggesting and would need to fully review the proposal,” Scott said in a statement provided to The Hill.
“While I’ve been clear that Florida is a great melting pot, America’s immigration system is broken and Congress — including Senator Nelson — has done nothing to fix the problem. My priorities continue to be securing the border and fixing the long-broken immigration system.”
In an interview with Axios released earlier Tuesday, Trump said that he is planning to sign an executive order doing away with birthright citizenship for the children of non-U.S. citizens born in the country. The controversial proposal comes one week out from the pivotal midterm elections.
