Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) wrote an article speaking to his fellow Congressmen about the president’s plans for immigration.
While Americans overwhelmingly protested Obama’s open-borders extremism through their votes last week, with 3 out of 4 citing immigration as an important factor in their vote, the president has made it clear that he is going to do everything he can to go against the wishes of the American people by moving forward with his executive amnesty decree. The decree would give work permits, photo IDs, and Social Security numbers to millions of illegal immigrants, allowing them to take jobs and benefits away from the American people.
Sessions tells the rest of Congress how they can stop the president, saying that executive amnesty will not be easy to execute, as “U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will have to be ordered to redirect funds and personnel away from its statutorily mandated enforcement duties and towards processing applications, amnesty benefits, and employment authorizations for illegal immigrants and illegal overstays.”
Congress holds the purse strings; and if they include language on any government funding bill that prohibits the expenditure of funds for Obama’s schemes (something that has been done thousands of times), the President will not be able to spend a dime unless Congress gives him permission.
why would any member of Congress who opposes executive amnesty would provide the president with the funds to carry it out ?
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus told voters that executive amnesty is “unconstitutional, illegal… It is un-American for a president to try and do such a thing…We will do everything we can to make sure it doesn’t happen… we can’t allow it to happen and we won’t let it happen. I don’t know how to be any stronger than that. I’m telling you, everything we can do to stop it we will.”
