22 Congressmen Demand Obama Immigration Audit
Immigration Audit Demanded by 22 Congressmen Following Doubts about Amnesty Funding
(USA Attorneys) – President Obama’s immigration reforms policy continues to be the focus of attention with as many as 22 Congressmen that includes Republican Louie Gohmert, R-Texas and 21 others demanding a formal audit of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services by the Government Accountability Office. The Congressmen suspect that money is being inappropriately used to fund the president’s immigration reforms, which is in violation of the court order, as per a WND report.
Gohmert grills ICE director
Gohmert and the other Congressmen are concerned about the fees being raised through the legal immigration process. They believe the money may not be actually used to secure legal status for illegal immigrants. One of the reasons for the doubt is the recent tussle between Gohmert and the director of ICE, Sarah Saldana inside the House Judiciary Committee. Gohmert questioned over 108,000 illegal immigrants who should be deported were granted three-year deferrals by the government.
He also raised concerns about who authorized the deferrals. Saldana said that the authorization wasn’t an issue for ICE since it came from the CIS or Citizenship and Immigration Services. According to immigration attorney, at the hearing Gohmert raised the issue that Homeland Security could have actually instigated fraud among the US District Court for the Southern District in Texas.
Government ignoring rule of law
Gohmert said it was obvious that the Obama administration was ignoring the rule of law and the court’s injunction on the president’s immigration executive action. He was also of the opinion that the CIS and Homeland Security were violating the law and the Constitution. This would not be the first time that Obama’s White House and public officials were hurting Americans for the sake of others who do not care about America’s interests...(MORE)
Cruz Takes 2nd Amendment Fight to Military Bases
‘Pressing’ McCain to hold hearings on concealed carry for soldiers
(Politico) – Appealing to New Hampshire’s powerful gun culture, Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday that he’s “pressing” Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain to hold hearings on whether soldiers should be allowed to carry their own concealed firearms onto military bases.
“I am very concerned about that policy,” the Texas senator told 120 gun owners at a hunting club here, before taking a trip to a firing range for some target practice. “I think it’s very important to have a public discussion about why we’re denying our soldiers the ability to exercise their Second Amendment rights.”
Defense Department leaders oppose relaxing the ban, which was enacted under George H.W. Bush.
Flanked by a flapping Gadsden flag on a crisp afternoon, he spent the better part of an hour-long town hall at the Londonderry Fish & Game Club touting his record on the Second Amendment. His wife, Heidi, stood behind him wearing a black cap that said “Armed & Fabulous.”
After three mass shootings at military installations in five years, including another at Ford Hood last year, pro-gun activists have argued that letting troops arm themselves on the job would give them a better ability to defend themselves...(MORE)
