Sessions: Comprehensive Reform Won’t Pass As Long As Admin Defies Existing Immigration Law
WTVY ^ | Jan 28, 2013 | Jeff Sessions

Posted on 01/28/2013 9:39:50 PM PST by george76

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee and former Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, issued the following statement on the new push for comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty:

“Americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration. They have pleaded with Congress to end the mass illegality for decades to little avail. All the while, millions have been added to the total of those illegally here.

It’s time to fix that broken system. Now we are told that the Obama Administration and members of Congress say they have a plan that they promise will do the job. So, the American people will need to watch closely. And, members of Congress must insist that they have a full and complete opportunity to study and amend such legislation.

We would be in a much better position to achieve immigration reform if the Obama Administration had spent that last four years enforcing federal law rather than dismantling it. Brave immigration agents have been left with no recourse but to sue their own Department head, simply so that they—like any other law officers—will be allowed to do their jobs. Just last Friday a federal judge made an important preliminary ruling in their favor. The ICE union also held their own agency head, John Morton, in no confidence with a unanimous vote. The first task for every media agency in the country ought to be to study this lawsuit, to listen to the long-documented complaints of ICE agents, and to review the record of stymied attempts at congressional oversight of DHS.

God bless Jeff Sessions. There’s our man, right there. So low key, unassuming and obviously cares less about the big chair, that we don’t even see him.

Intellegence is out of fashion however, on our side of the aisle. Conservatives seem to approve the more anti-intellectual types who do great one liners with charisma.

Thus, we have the stupid party and waste Jeff Sessions.

Sessions was the key Senator who led the charge against Illegal Alien Amnesty in 2007....hope he is up to the charge again....especially now with PhonyCon Media like Fox News, Sean Hannity, Herman Cain, and others supporting Illegal Alien Amnesty

If they want immigration reform they need to make english the official language of the United States. No duel printing of ballots, signs, instructions, applications etc. No bi-lingual emplyment requirements. English only.

CONTACT SENATORS/CONG/men--NOW IS THE TIME TO BLANKET CONGRESS W/ EMAILS, LETTERS, MESSAGES, etc.

"DONT REWARD LAW-BREAKING BY CONFERRING THE PRECIOUS GIFT OF CITIZENHIP ON LAWBREAKERS." Amnesty legislation should be amended to DENY citizenship in these categories (all instances cited leave a paper trail--and are easily verified).

(1) deny citizenship to illegals who use (and/or purchased) multiple forged/faked identities;

(2) deny citizenship to illegals who fraudulently voted in American elections;

(3) deny citizenship to illegals--and extended families--cashing one or more US govt checks;

(4) deny citizenship to all illegals convicted of crimes here and in their homelands;

(5) deny citizenship to illegals w/ fraudulent drivers' licenses;

(6) deny citizenship to illegals undermining the US ecocomy by sending US tax dollars back to their homelands;

(7) deny citizenship to illegals affiliated with latino organizations undermining US ntl security;

(8) deny citizenship to illegals connected to the hatemongering "La Raza"

(9) deny citizenship to students and advocates of "Raza Studies" (teaches killing of Americans);

(10) deny citizenship to illegals who returned to US after being deported one or more times;

(11) deny citizenship to illegals whose parents fraudently declared them on EITC apps;

(12) deny citizenship to illegals who unlawfully received US govt gratuities in exchange for their votes;

(13) deny citizenship to those who made false claims of citizenship on job apps (US courts ruled this a deportable offense);

(14) deny citizenship to illegals using fake/forged Social Security numbers;

(15) deny citizenship to illegals who obtained fraudulent sub-prime mortgages;

(16) deny citizenship to illegals who defaulted on mortgages (and other debt).

(17) deny citizenship to illegals who skipped out on arrest warrants (violates US criminal law w/ arrest/jailtime for contempt).

..........and so on and so forth......

U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), :”Yet, without consulting the law officers who have the duty to enforce the law, another group of senators, meeting in secret—just like the last time comprehensive reform failed—have set forth an outline with no legislative language. We have seen too often before that the promises made by bill sponsors do not match up to the reality when the language is produced. No secret accord with profound consequences for this nation’s future can be rushed through. That means a full committee process and debate and amendments on the floor of the Senate.
Several points need to be understood. Amnesty will not help balance our budget. In fact, a large-scale amnesty is likely to add trillions of dollars to the debt over time, accelerate Medicare’s and Social Security’s slide into insolvency, and put enormous strain on our public assistance programs. We know already that the administration refuses to enforce existing law restricting immigrant welfare use, and in fact promotes expanded welfare use to immigrants—including food stamps, public housing, and Medicaid. I joined with four Ranking Members to obtain answers from the Department of Homeland Security about this evisceration of law, and the Administration has suspiciously defied three consecutive oversight requests”

Sessions is on the money here.

Worse yet is ‘path to voting’ that the McCain, Schumer, Rubio amnesty team wants. McCain says we ‘owe’ illegals ‘the same benefits we enjoy as Americans’ for their hard work here.

A caller on CSPAN this morning accused the US (corporations) of ‘bringing them here’ in making the exact same argument, not kidding.
Yes, apparently illegals were brought here in chains just like Kunta Kinte (Roots) was.

Sessions is way outnumbered by members of his own party. Republicans are bound and determined to complete their fantasy of cornering the hispanic vote by abandoning immigration enforcement and law abiding Americans in favor of political expediency.

“Americans overwhelmingly oppose illegal immigration. They have pleaded with Congress to end the mass illegality for decades to little avail. All the while, millions have been added to the total of those illegally here.

God bless Sessions for having the backbone to say it out loud!

The funny irony of this whole thing is this: so many people (including? businessman and farmers) want amnesty for the illegals immigrants already here (watch the floodgates while we wait for this to become fact) but when they become citizens they are entitled to, not only benefits, but minimum wage. So the same workers they are now paying $3/hr, will now have to be paid $7, or upwards to $10-$11/hr. if the increase in minimum wage gets passed.

I say dismantle the INS...what a waste of taxpayers hard earned money.

I’ve personally met Pete Sessions several times. He is a “real” person and has a son with a handicap. He seemed like a sincere person to me and is LEO friendly too. Not some down the nose looker like so many other politiians.

As an investigator with 20 + years under my belt that list is pretty good because they use false IDs they buy on the streets that uses someone else’s identification all the time. They continuously “borrow” drivers license numbers and social security numbers and any other false documentation to apply for welfare programs and credit. You’d think the creditors would run their SSNs through the system and come back and say, “We’re sorry but we can’t approve the loan. Your social security number is associated with a John Doe who lives in such and such city and appears to be linked to that SSN since 1984 while you are only linked to it since 2012 so we are going to have to decline your loan” but more often they don’t. Why? Commissions off the sales o they push it through and ruin someone’s credit when Juan decides to go visit his family in Mexico and decides to never come back taking his brand spanking new 2013 Ford F159 over the border. Meanwhile Tom L Jones, the American citizen who pays his taxes isn’t completely unaware that Juan’s family applied for food stamp and housing assistance while they were over here and that his niece and nephew-in-law are using his benefits. He’s always out oftown they say. Tom applies or a loan and discovers that he is a deadbeat on paper and HE is thewho has to prove he isn’t.

Worked on a case awhile back where there was a whole houseful of illegals using false IDs. They bought their IDs down at a Hispanic flea market where they destroy lives daily for about a $100 - $150 a pop...sometimes less (I was told I could buy a Social Security card for $65 that looked just as real as a real one when I went in undercover later)

Illegal aliens are government growth hormone.

30 million illegals is enough to create some 50 new primarily democrat congressional districts with all the costs, pork, earmarks, entitlements, and liberal votes associated with them.

Anyone who supports amnesty and calls themselves a conservative is a liar.

Yes just because 4 RINO senators join with 4 Liberal Dems to shove amnesty down our throats doesn’t mean we have to accept it.

Thanks for the realtime report.

Vote-crazed US pols are marching in lockstep with Mexico.

Mexico is pushing north at a furious pace---throwing its "pressure groups" over the border---salivating for reconquista---to takeover the SW--- financing and coaching their fifth column invasion of US borders.

The wailing and whining invaders' propaganda-----"just here for a better life, to do jobs Americanos won't do"---really "gets" bleeding heart sap-happy liberals and vote-crazed US politicians.

=============================================

The latino criminal underworld on US soil has more criminal enterprises than you can shake a stick at.

<><>ICE's "documents and benefits fraud taskforce" found a common practice among "impoverished" illegals is to buy several faked identities for several thousand dollars each----the illegal then votes and rides the US gravy train under several names.

<><> Jose Madrigal---the Washington staterapist---had some 30 identities. And probably voted and collected US benefits under every single identity.

<><>June 26, 2010 An illegal using multiple identities was sentenced to prison and ordered to pay back $3 million in fraudulently obtained unemploymet compensation. Manuel Mejia Ordonez, got eight years for conspiracy to commit mail fraud........and identity theft.

<><> Hilderberto Salinas sold state drivers' licenses issued out of the state’s Motor Vehicle Agency in NJ to illegals with multiple identities who did not have the necessary id's....among 40 people who participated in the widespread ring. "Impoverished" illegals paid $2,500 to $7,000 apiece for the licenses---which allows them to vote.

The US State Dept once stopped taking passports from Hudson County, NJ---b/c they were mostly fraudulent. The latino HC Clerk was then given a high post in then Dem Gov Corine's admin.

==========================================

Vote-crazed pols are using US gvt authority and tax dollars to foment hatred againt America and Americans.

AN EXAMINATION OF LA RAZA STUDIES---SCHOOL CURRICULUM: These shocking quotes are taken directly from A LA Raza textbook "Occupied America" (pg. 167): “Supporters would execute all white males over age 16,” (also known as the Plan of San Diego). LA Raza school textbook chapter from “Occupied America,” by Rodolfo Acuña, includes a speech given by university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez: “We have got to eliminate the gringo, and if worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him,” (pg. 323).

La Raza books also talk about the need for the govt of Mexico to re-take seven states in SW United States. so that the Southwest USA would become a Chicano nation. And judging by Ramos' activities---La Raza is establishing a beachhead in NJ.

YOU ARE PAYING FOR THIS In 2005 alone, $7.9 million in taxpayer funding was given to "La Raza charter schools" via the US Dept of Education grants. These charter schools stress Latino culture, the Spanish language, the re-conquest of the American Southwest, the establishment of the mythical Atzlan on US soil, and even Aztec math.

In addition to using taxpayer funds to enforce the teaching of murdering Americans and latino violence, the federally-funded La Raza organization operates 100 charter schools across America.

Sessions is a great man, and Alabama is fortunate to have him. But like most places, we have liberal media who of course hate him. So how about helping the good Senator out and freeping the comments to this blathering lib?

Sessions needs to have the family of Robert Kraft come to Congressional hearings & give first hand information about what goes on at our borders.

1) ENFORCE THE CURRENT BORDER LAWS - SECURE THE BORDERS
2) Obama will not enforce current border laws so....
3) Sign a NEW bill which all Republicans are saying, “It will secure the borders.”
4) Obama will not enforce NEW border laws so....

WE ARE SCREWED!!

How about this?

No discussion of "gun control" before "border control"!

No discussion of "amnesty / legalization" before establishing "border securitization"!

Same ole Republicans who were for backdoor amnesty before are disgracefully using the results of recent elections and ignominious Romney's campaign defeat to trot out the same ole shibboleths about "demographics" and falsely conclude that pandering to Hispanic-Americans through amnesty is the best course.

They couldn't be more wrong about this - following article clearly proves that Romney's loss wasn't simply due to "demographics" alone and that the "amnesty" is not the way to win the hearts and minds of Hispanic U.S. citizens, it's the way to condemn the GOP to losing future national elections and invite importation of more illegals as the discussed amnesty law does nothing to prevent or discourage it and doesn't explain why conservative (not "Republican") principle are best for the U.S. citizens of Hispanic ancestry:
