Dem Gov.: White House Tried to ‘Spin’ My Position on Immigration (Mediaite)

Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley has been outspoken about the plight of undocumented children at the border, but got in a bit of a public spat after telling the White House not to send them to a Maryland facility. O’Malley appeared on Fusion tonight and said that his position was unfairly spun by the White House.

Jorge Ramos asked O’Malley about this apparent “double standard” of his on the issue. O’Malley said, “I think sadly that was a spin and a misrepresentation that some at the White House tried to put out in order to discredit the larger point that I was making.”
