Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) told Breitbart News that President Barack Obama’s decision to delay his planned executive amnesty for potentially 8 million illegal aliens past the November midterm elections is proof the American people have roundly rejected his immigration policies.
Lee noted first that the House passed a bill that would block the president from continuing or expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty for illegal alien minors—which Obama began in summer 2012 and is largely viewed as the spark that caused the surge of illegal immigration that’s led to the current border crisis.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is currently resisting GOP-wide demands, led by Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), for a clean vote on the House-passed anti-DACA bill. Instead of joining Sessions and most Republicans to demand a vote on that bill, Senate Democrats privately lobbied Obama and the White House to wait until after their elections to enact his executive amnesty so they don’t have to take a stand on the issue.
"Congress is at this very moment in a debate over the issue of expanding the DACA program,” Lee said. “The House passed a bill limiting the program just before Congress left for the August break and it is now the Senate's turn to consider this legislation. By suggesting that he plans to move forward on executive amnesty after the election regardless of what happens in the Senate over the next month, the president is signaling to the country that debate doesn't matter, senators' votes don't matter, and, most alarmingly, the voices of the American people don't matter. It is an outrageous act that threatens the very foundations of our democracy.”
Lee noted that what Obama is planning would hurt Americans and countless more future potential illegal aliens.
I love Sen. Mike Lee!
You're right Mike most Americans are against Amnesty for these illegal alien criminals executive order or passed into law by the Congress, people who cross our border's illegally should be turned back at the border & those already here should be sent back to where they came from.
Love the jpg's
Thanks I 'borrowed' them
Because Obama saw how easy it was to get to where he is illegally, he wants to ignore the laws for all who want to come here from other countries, but Americans still have to obey the laws. The immigration laws need to be enforced against ILLEGAL ALIENS , and as Pres. , he swore to uphold ALL the laws of the land NOT just the ones he chooses . Congress is no better, they look the other way when he signs EO's and sidesteps them and the law in the process. ALL should be removed from office !
Well if he passed amnesty..he would make himself legal...
In the past two days the communist party formerly the democrat party has blitzed the media especially ads on FOX attacking Michael Grimm. I have seen hourly adds attacking Mike Grimm convicting him as a criminal. I haven't seen such a low life tactic since guys who couldn't score labeled their female victim a slut. It is a political tactic with the odds stacked in the favor of the liars. When Mary is labeled a whore 80% believe it is true. By the time Mary proves her innocence the damage is done. The best she can hope for is a 50% belief factor.The party of death has proven this over and over again. The same tactic is being used to destroy the reputation of a decent American who refuses to vote GOD out of his party, refuses to vote to burn the flag of his country, refuses to vote to kill kids and refuses to vote to sell dope for tax revenue. His biggest crime was threatening to throw a media rat off a balcony for trying to set him up for a hit piece. If you saw that media rat you would throw him off the balcony too. Maybe from a higher level. The vendetta against Grimm is to make New York 100% communist run just like Mayor DiBlasio's Duma. These ads are not cheap.
Hey ABU TOM- I'm frm NY, NYC, too. It is BS what Michael Grimm is going thru. nObama needs to be hit with the arguments ALL "R" candidates can communicate, that the "R" Conservative messageis DIFFERENT thatn the God-less DNC/Dem/Progressive BS mesgae & straw men & women incl Wasserman-Schultz who neds to get back on her meds. I think MGrimm didn't even own the restaruant at the time that "Million" was being tabulated... The Dem /Progressive Saul Alinsky/Communist parties HAVE NO PRINCIPLES and HAVE NO SUCCESSES so they have to CHEAT in the voting, the electronic voting (incl through the Soros owned or at least influenced S.O.E. Spanish Holding Company which OWNS the tabulation of about 1000 voting districts across the US... I believe in IOWA, in Philadelphia, & OHIO, where it was TESTED in 2012. We should be investigating nObama's SALE of the previous US-owned company TO S.O.E. (& I am forgetting the name of that previously owned US company who counted the electronic votes...) & get to thebottom of nObama's voting fraud...WHILE at the same time: PUSHING FOR VOTER ID LAWS.. IT IS RIDICULOUS THAT EVERYONE THINKS THEY DON'T NEED AN ID: AND NOBAMA IS INCLUDING THESE JACKASS ILLEGALS FROM ALL BACKGROUNDS, NOT JUST "LATINOS" FROM MORONICALLY-RUN MEXICO IN THE MIX- THOSE WHO DO NOT NEED ID'S TO BOARD PLANES OR TO COME OVER OUR BORDERS... AlQaeda/ISIS resides in JUAREZ, MEXICO: AND THER HOMELAND SECURITY & BORDER POLICE BETTER BE ON GUARD RIGHT NOW !!! 9/11 is approaching & I fear nObama's stupid warning is one HE is making becuase of his OWN RELATIVES: half brother Malik, Uncle Sayeed & Grandma Sarah (see www.shoebat.com) who have a 501c3 type IRS non-profit status fund which FUNDS THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD....LOOK IT UP & see on www.WND.com as Aaron on WND sights an article in BEacon Press or Washington Examiner... LOOK IT ALL UP NOW !!! STOP THE COMING CIVIL WAR as Dr Savage says....& get the book on Amazon...www.michaelsavage.com a political PSYCHIC actually... He puts two & two together like no one else & a year or half before everyone else.
Someone please refresh my memory, but I recall that John Boehner warned Obozo if he by passed Congress, that he John would start Impeachment proceedings. Either way we have to keep pressure on Congress and especially the Traitor, I have an Idea that might get all the powers that be in D.C. to take notice, If we do a mass mailing on a particular day with just one or two words on the envelope might get some attention, if all the sudden thousands of letters arrive on Obumas desk.
And Hillary can stuff Climate change up her old &%$&#@^&ss.
Lee knows how to walk the walk and talk the talk. He'd make a nice president too...Semper Fi Nam 66-67
Oh yes! He's not flamboyant but boy does he know what's up! I'd definitely vote for him.
