Santorum: Obama's immigration action lacks compassion for U.S. workers

(CNN) – Former senator and 2012 GOP presidential candidate Rick Santorum is joining Republicans in criticizing President Obama's executive action on immigration, saying it disadvantages American workers.

"You want to talk about compassion, how you about compassion for the American worker," Santorum said in an interview with CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper." "How about somebody who is trying to make ends meet working two and three jobs who now has 5 million more people competing for that job."
