The head of an organization that wants to curb immigration into the United States is reporting that Republicans running for president are both passing and failing on the issue. 

Roy Beck, founder and president of Numbers USA, says Sen. Linsdey Graham and Sen. Marco Rubio get failing grades from his group.

Meanwhile, Jeb Bush, Mike Huckabee and Rand Paul are receiving "C" or "D" grades.

Beck, Roy (Numbers USA)The best "grade" of either announced or possible GOP candidates is Rick Santorum, the former Pennsylvania senator.

"He's likely going to get an A, maybe even an A-plus just as an example," Beck says of Santorum, who has announced a decision is coming.

Santorum, Beck insists, has "set the bar" for Numbers USA's grading scale.

Of the declared candidates, Beck says the best so far are Gov. Scott Walker, Rick Perry and Sen. Ted Cruz.

"And Walker is definitely the best of those three right now," Beck tells OneNewsNow.

The scorecards at Numbers USA are continually updated so some candidates could improve their grades as the campaign unfolds through the year into 2016.
