SESSIONS: All Americans must help stop Obama's dictatorial threats to expand Amnesty to millions

By Senator Jeff Sessions

I call on the American public to rally Congress against the President’s openly declared threat to implement, by executive order, the amnesty that Congress has rejected:

How Congress chooses to act in the coming hours and days will determine whether the President succeeds in his plan to nullify the immigration laws of the United States.

Just yesterday, TIME magazine reported that the President is considering a grant of ‘work authorization for perhaps several million undocumented immigrants.’ Permitting those illegally present in the U.S. to work and take jobs is contrary to plain law, which the President has no power to change. Yet Democratic members of Congress have openly crowed about these planned executive actions.

It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.

The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.

No Member—House or Senate, Democrat or Republican—should support any bill with respect to the border crisis that does not include language explicitly prohibiting the Administration from taking such action. Congress must foreclose any possibility of these unlawful executive actions before congressional funding is granted. This is an essential precondition.

The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced.  We have people in our own country living in violence, fear, and poverty every single day.  They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages, and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?



7/25/2014: National Review, Gutiérrez: ‘I Think We Can Get 3 or 4, Maybe Even 5 Million People’ Amnesty via Executive Action

“Days after telling La Raza convention attendees that he is confident President Obama will use executive action to give legal status to millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D., Ill.) predicted that the administration could legalize as many as 5 million people… Gutiérrez said he will meet with White House officials later in the day ‘to negotiate additional terms and avenues the president can use’ through executive action.”

7/17/2014: Daily Caller, Dem Lawmaker: Obama Has Promised To ‘Act Shortly’ By Granting Amnesty To Many Illegals

“Democratic lawmaker Tony Cardenas revealed that President Barack Obama promised the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Wednesday he will ‘act shortly’ to bypass Congress and grant some form of amnesty to many illegal immigrants…”

7/3/2014: National Journal, Obama's Immigration Independence Day

“Obama told the group [of amnesty advocates] that Boehner had informed him on June 24 there would be no votes on immigration before the midterm election but that he believed there was a good chance a comprehensive bill could pass in the next Congress. The president also told the group that Boehner urged him not to press ahead with executive action because that would make legislating more difficult next year.

Obama told the group, according to those present, his response to Boehner was: ‘Sorry about that. I'm going to keep my promise and move forward with executive action soon.’

In the room, there was something of a collective, electric gasp. The assembled immigration-rights groups had been leaning hard on Obama for months to use executive action to sidestep Congress and privately mocked what they regarded as Pollyanna hopes that House Republicans would budge…

Obama told the groups what they had been dying to hear—that he was going to condemn House Republicans for inaction and…provide legal status to millions of undocumented workers—all by himself…

Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit. He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012…

Obama has now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10. Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults.”

I wrote an angry letter to my Congressman, Joyce(R). But it seems none of them really care what we have to say.
Half of this nations legal residents are so completely ignorant or apathetic to what's going on, it sickens me with frustration.

Impeach the treasonous usurper. Or face revolution. Those behind this outright treason are so far ahead of our voting our way out of this invasion of enemies both foreign and domestic, such a course of redress is useless.

Not for nothing where has Senator Sessions been the last 6 years? On another planet?
like calling and writing ones "elected representative" will accomplish a 180 degree turn in the culture of treason and high crimes in power?
A million people made their voice heard at the Tea Party rally of 2008, sent an unmistakable message in the 2010 elections, and these criminal in Brooks Brothers suits gave Liberty the finger.

Ya sure, calling and writing is always a worthy effort, never to be underestimated in its value as a voice of a plurality who honor rule of law and natural laws of our Liberty.
Yet what recourse is there when peaceful redress is ignored and denied?
Will it come down to violent redress?
One has to face the truth those in power intend to destroy the very fabric of our Republic.
What other agenda could account for the insidious breech of law and order and blatant treason those running things have committed?
