Sarah Palin close to leaving Republican Party over immigration

Palin posted the long memo last Friday out of frustration over the news of the way undocumented, unaccompanied minors are treated in Arizona.

Palin said the handling of the issue is, “just about driving me to renounce my Republican ties.”

Palin says too many within the GOP haven’t done enough to “stop the madness.”

The former Alaska governor went on to accuse President Obama of refusing to enforce immigration laws and said that his actions are being made in his own best interest.
