GOP leadership allowed an Amendment to pass in he House Appropriations Committee which will bring back Obama's asylum policies, thus fueling our border crisis... This year has seen a 21% increase in illegal alien activity along our Southern Border. The initial decline, in the first months of the Trump Administration, has now been replaced with RECORD NUMBERS of illegal aliens crossing our Southern Border...
Pres. Trump's immigration policies are being overturned by the Courts and his DOJ... which has failed to properly defend his policies... In effect, the DOJ is throwing immigration cases, deliberately losing them... The Deep State is entrenched in the DOJ and Pres. Trump has failed to act to FIRE those promoting such calamity.
We all remember how angry voters were in 2015 when the GOP-controlled House funded Obama's executive amnesty, after making solemn promises that they would not. That feeling of betrayal helped fuel the anti-establishment movement in the 2016 elections. It's happening again... in reverse. This time, the GOP leadership is acting on its own to promote open borders... The House Appropriations Committee, controlled by the GOP, allowed a vote to add an amendment to the Dept. of Homeland Security appropriations bill which specifically DEFUNDS Attorney General Sessions' plan to reform the asylum process. The Republican Congress is doubling down on their foolishness, compounding their original betrayal as they work to defund Pres. Trump's attempts to enforce our existing immigration law?
Our President is being forced to fight horrible Judicial mandates, the DOJ swamp rats, and a Republican Party, whose leadership might as well be Democrats... The GOP is openly backing open borders, universal citizenship, the compromise of our National Sovereignty and the Constitutional Republic. We are being betrayed by the GOP.

Obama-era expansions of US asylum policy led to a seventeen-fold increase in claims of "credible fear" from 2008 to 2016 fueling record numbers of illegal aliens and overloading our Immigration System's ability to properly administer our Immigration law. It has effectively lead to massive numbers of illegals being released into our interior where it can take years and over $75K dollars, per individual, to remove them. Illegal Aliens are routinely demanding asylum and are released into our interior, pending hearings, (By Court Mandate). Most, of course, never show up for their hearing and remain in our Country illegally.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions TIGHTENED grounds for asylum claims in June of this year. However, this common-sense reform is now under attack by the DHS appropriations bill. In addition, Federal Judges continue to interfere with our Immigration law by granting illegal aliens rights that the law and our Constitution deny them.
Our NumbersUSA public policy director Rosemary Jenks called the vote to defund Jeff Sessions attempts to enforce our Immigration laws as written "insane," saying, "this needs to be taken out . . . this [bill] should not go to the floor with this abomination." Please call your Federal Representatives and Senators to ensure this Amendment is defeated... and let the President Know you expect him to veto any Bill that arrives on his desk with such provisions. We must not let this Amendment become law... it will effectively result in an open borders policy.
