5:00 pm
americans. >> reporter: affective immediately, they request can request a work permit to stay in the country illegally. if they came as children, are under the age of 30n school or the military and haven't broken the law. >> this is a temporary stop gap measure that let's us focus on resources wisely while giving a degree of relief and hope to talented, driven patriotic young people. >> reporter: mr. obama said he's acting because congress won't. many critics charge this not only amounts to amnesty but a power grab by the president. mitt romney made clear he wants a long-term solution. >> an executive order, of course s just a short-term matter. it can be reversed by subsequent presidents. i would like to see legislation that dials with this issue. >> reporter: some say this looks like a political move for a president running for re- election and courting the hispanic vote. >> i think this is a disingenuous way to capture that vote.
5:01 pm
>> make no mistake, the president may have won friends with this decision, but there will be those voting against him because of this decision, too. >> reporter: at least one lawmaker, iowa republican speaker tim king s going to suit obama administration to keep this policy from being implemented because he believes it requires legislative approval. jennifer davis, fox news. it's the right thing to do. excuse me, sir, it's not time for questions, sir. not while i'm speaking. >> president obama scolding a reporter from a conservative online after interrupting his now. he shouted to the president, quote, why do you favor foreigners over american workers? the president answered the question during the q&a that followed and said the young people are going to make extraordinary contributions to our society.
5:02 pm
[ speaking spanish ] >> supporters of the new plan celebrated the president's announcement today. members say this will allow undocumented young people to better give back to their communities. one high schooler from anne arundel county we spoke with said the maryland dream act, which goes to a referendum in november, would do the same. >> and it would level the playing field so that we all pay in-state tuition regardless of our status. as long as we pay taxes, this would allow a lot of students to assert themselves through education and once they get their permanent residency or the work permits, that they're going to be giving us, it would allow us to work and give back to our community through our education. >> we have two guests joining us today to look closer at the issue. di salvo and rad a, the organizer of casade maryland, and prince william stewart, and
5:03 pm
lieutenant governor governor candidate of virginia. thank you both for being with us on tonight. mr. andrade, let me start with you and get your reaction to the president's move today. >> i think it was fantastic news for 800,000 plus children who have come here as young people and babies, in many cases, don't find out they're undocumented until they 16, apply for a driver's license and get told by a worker at dmv they're not allowed to have one or try to get a job for the first time. unfortunately, you can't provide the correct papers. imagine if you move to a different country when you were a child and a baby. and you didn't make this decision, remember. all you want to do is contribute and make the country better and make your family proud. this is what the young students are going to be able to do. >> mr. stewart, you released a statement saying that this will greatly hamper the ability of local authorities to protect our citizens, and you say this conveys the wrong message. how will this hamper local
5:04 pm
authorities? >> in a couple of ways. we use immigration status as a tool, really, to identify those illegal americans who are committing crimes or involved with gangs and other activities, to have them deported, reduce to the violent crime rate in prince william county by almost 50%, and you have effectively, meaning the obama administration, has effectively removed a law enforcement tool that we have effectively used in prince william county to reduce filing crime and protect americans. this is a back door way of amnesty. it's not just an amnesty for the 800,000 individuals, but we'll need, no -- will lead, no doubt about it, to the amnesty of those family members, including parents, millions of others. this is back door amnesty. >> a lot of people given the eligibility must meet certain requirements. and they not necessarily violent criminals. so how do you respond to that?
5:05 pm
>> absolutely. listen, those criteria are wrong. part of the way the people qualify for the measure is that they, of course v to have a clean record and have to be brought here as children and those are old-fashioned republican ideas that we can deport our way out of the mess we're in. today's measure should be applauded, long, overdue and it's not amnesty but a small step in the right direction. >> a lot of critics, though, said it's amnesty. mr. stewart, i have to ask you under your leadership, prince william county implemented one of the toughest crackdowns on illegal immigration. how will today's moves affect your policy? will it affect your policy? >> it will effectively eliminate the possibility of our law enforcement removing individuals who may not have a criminal record, per say, but who law enforcement believes are here illegally and involved in gangs and other nefarious activities.
5:06 pm
carlos montano, who killed a nun in 2010, was -- came here as an illegal immigrant. he had a drunk griefving -- drunk driving record. drunk driving doesn't qualify as a violent offense. under this policy, carlos mean towno, who killed a nun, would be allowed to state and granted a.m. nest net united states. >> in this is a debatele that continue, of course. gustavo andrade, corey stewart. thank you both. >> thank you. developing news from richmond. this afternoon, the state board of health approved the new abortion rules and got rid of the tougher regulations in place since the beginning of the year. the board struck down a requirement that existing clinics meet the same building standards as new hospital construction. only new build clinics will have to meet that standard. kathy lanier is defending her department against claims detectives failed to
5:07 pm
investigate or document a large number of special -- sexual assaults. human rights watched uncovered a trend in the department and recommend the justice department take a closer look. paul wagner joining us new in the newsroom with the story. paul? >> reporter: chief lanier defended her detectives today saying that human rights watch has reached a number of conclusions without having access to all of the data. lanier denies cases go undocumented and, to prove it, she's asked the civil rights division of the justice department to come in and take a look. on may 30th, human rights watch sent this letter to chief lanier claiming a large amount of sexual assaults are left indocumented and never investigated. the letter was never meant to be public, but she put it on the department's website along with her response. >> just as the human rights watch is trying to protect identity of the people they interview, we have to responsibly protect the identity in the people involved
5:08 pm
in our investigations. as a result, we were not able to turn over all of the documentation that they need to draw conclusions. >> reporter: chief lanier said the department of justice would have unrestricted access and be able to fully see the department's actions and procedures. in the letter, human rights watch said it found the hospital records more reports of sexual assaults than incidents on the metropolitan department website and sexual assaults every month. >> i looked. i know we have the documentation, the case was documented and filed up on, so they can't turn some of the things over. >> reporter: chief lanier said not every category of sexual assault is reflected in the website numbers. the letter said that detectives regularly treat victims in a dismissive or insensitive manner and adding to their trauma. >> between 2006-2008, some of the allegations, there might be truth to them, but i think we have done a lot of work and put a lot of reforms in place. >> reporter: the lawyer who wrote the letter said she's
5:09 pm
convinced the department still has a problem handling sexual assaults. we talked to her via skyp from new york. >> we do believe there is a serious problem based on the information we have, and we're open to reviewing additional information that shows that if the analysis we have undertaken so far and the information we gathered is cripping -- oncorrect, we're open to seeing what additional documentation we have been given access to, despite our requests over 16 months. >> reporter: she said the letter to the chief was a heads up to what the investigation has uncovered and a full report will follow. human rights watch said it's agreed to hold off issuing a report until it's sign the additional documentation. the department of justice has not yet said publicly whether it will accept the chief's offer and begin a probe. the human rights watch builds itself as a non-profit fact- finding organization dedicated to protecting and defending
