Exhibits brash contempt for still struggling American citizen workforce
As we await this evening’s announcement granting amnesty to upward of five million illegals, it’s worth keeping a sharp eye on the Republican establishment, some of whom are poised to cave to this dangerous overreach that will give rise to a further surge of invaders. Beware when the words, “our nation’s immigration system is broken,” are used.
Surprisingly, the habitually deferential MSM networks —- ABC, CBS and NBC —- are reportedly taking a pass on Barack Obama’s primetime address, as he outlines his executive action in defiance of the American people who soundly rejected his schemes on Nov. 4.
In fact, this newly released NBC/WSJ poll shows Hispanics do not overwhelmingly support Obama’s decision to bypass Congress. Nearly half of all Americans express disapproval.
Acting unilaterally, the “Emperor of the United States,” as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has so correctly tagged, him is moving forward with imposing executive amnesty.
Rush Limbaugh notes that Sessions is also the most eloquent, consistent, outspoken critic of illegal immigration and amnesty. He writes op-eds and delivers effective speeches from the floor of the Senate. He has been tireless in his characterization of the danger that this portends to the country, to the future. He understands what’s at risk, both democratically and constitutionally.
For his efforts, Republican leadership in the Senate want to kick Sessions off the Budget Committee, where he is the Ranking Member. If that occurs, it pretty much tells us all we need to know about what’s going to happen with the new Senate majority we were just rejoicing over.
After winning the only nationally uncontested senate election in 2014, Sessions said, “The American people dramatically repudiated the policies of President Obama, Senator Reid, and Leader Pelosi. It was also a dramatic affirmation of the policies our GOP candidates campaigned on: controlling spending, balancing the budget, repealing Obamacare, unleashing American energy, and boosting wages through pro-worker reforms.”
“Republicans in the House and Senate campaigned against the Obama-Senate immigration bill and on the pledge to block President Obama’s unlawful executive amnesty. The immediate emergency facing our new majority will be fighting the President’s disastrous planned actions, and we will have not only a Constitutional mandate but also a popular mandate to do so,” Sessions said.
“President Obama’s immigration order would provide illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress has repeatedly rejected: Social Security numbers, photo IDs and work permits —– which will allow them to now take jobs directly from struggling Americans in every occupation. Congress must not allow this unconstitutional action. That means Congress should fund the government while ensuring that no funds can be spent on this unlawful purpose.”
“The last six years of the Obama-Reid majority have been a government of the elites for the elites. Our new GOP Senators will lead the way in returning government to the loyal citizens who sent us here.”
Those were Sen. Sessions words following the election that swept Republicans into office nationwide earlier this month. Will they ring true?
