Sessions: Border Security Amendment Would Not Hire Agents Until 2017
Breitbart ^ | 21 Jun 2013 | Kerry Picket

Posted on 06/22/2013 10:33:01 PM PDT by george76

Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) blasted the Senate's border security amendment to its immigration bill, touted as a breakthrough for the controversial legislation. Sessions alleged that it does not hire any new border agents until years after its presumed passage.

Senators Bob Corker (R-TN) and John Hoeven (R-ND) gave reassurances on Thursday that their amendment would enact tough border security provisions before any legalization of new immigrants could occur. Corker and Hoeven stated on Fox News Friday that their amendment would bring a “surge” to border security. The provisions of the amendment include 20,000 additional border patrol agents, 700 miles of fencing, and an E-Verify system for immigrant workers before new immigrants could receive green cards.

Senator Sessions objected that the promises are trumped by "loopholes that are snuck into" the amended immigration bill. Sessions said the border security provisions are "designed" to be ineffective in a press release sent out Friday evening

Senators Corker and Hoeven are being very dishonest.

The way they play the game is to spin, to tell us mistruths knowingly.

Corker reminds one of Wimpy on Popeye.

Buy me a hamburger today and I will gladly pay you back on Tuesday.

Tuesday came and went, and whoever lent Wimpy the dough never got was promised.

2017 will come and go and there will be no border guards added.

I would trust Wimpy more than any RINO senator because I can always afford to be conned out of the price of hamburger.However, the country can never afford what RINOs like Juan, Goober, Marco, and Corker on conning you out of.

But they are about to legalize 50 million new big government voters.

Or more.

They are taking the power of citizens and giving it to illegal aliens that they have invited here.

If this bill passes, the game is over.

As Mark Levin explained Friday, the democrips have written the bill in such a way that it is considered enforced if one minor step in the whole defined process is started ... not finished, only started! Like that seven hundred plus miles of fence which had thirty some miles built then the funding for further building was halted and there ended the enforcement of the bill for seven hundred plus miles of fence!

Democrips are just being the devious lying scum they are. What frosts my backside is that the republicants KNOW this is the reality of this seriously treacherous bill and yet they are pushing it for passage and acceptance while knowing it will never be fulfilled as presented in their lies to US.

Oh the repubs are helping them straight up. They are aiding and abetting in the betrayal of the citizens of America.

There are not two parties. There is only government, and it intends to consume every single thing.

Republicans shall not be forgiven for this, not by me. They are democrats now, they are government.

During the reign of the Bushes we learned that the globalists plan for all of North America, that’s Mexico, the US, and Canada to be one ‘union’. These deceptions crafted as ‘immigration reform’ are the means by which the globalist achieve that union, by destroying American sovereignty. Corker and little barry bastard boy are allies doing the work they’ve been given by their masters. ... And We The People are not their masters, we are their serfs.

Well of course. Once all the current illegals are citizens, we’ll need time to bring in new illegals to do the jobs that the new Americans won’t do anymore.

Bushes were always about the “New World Order”... I remember Ronald Reagan was NOT about this AT ALL. We can only hope we can be blessed with someone such as Reagan to pull our butts out of the fire.

Heh...remember Bush's promise back in 2007?

Bush to Send Up to 6,000 Troops to Border

I have a good buddy who was in one of the Guard units sent to the border, and he told me that it was a joke---they' didn't take their weapons, spent a good portion of their time at the Tucson Double Tree hotel by the pool, and on weekend, visited the senoritas across the border for some international loving.

And then there was this...

Work to cease on 'virtual fence' along U.S.-Mexico border

It's all lies...!

send this to your Congresscritters:


Federal law regulating oath of office by government officials is divided into four parts along with an executive order which further defines the law for purposes of enforcement. 5 U.S.C. 3331, provides the text of the actual oath of office members of Congress are required to take before assuming office. 5 U.S.C. 3333 requires members of Congress sign an affidavit that they have taken the oath of office required by 5 U.S.C. 3331 and have not or will not violate that oath of office during their tenure of office as defined by the third part of the law, 5 U.S.C. 7311 which explicitly makes it a federal criminal offense (and a violation of oath of office) for anyone employed in the United States Government (including members of Congress) to “advocate the overthrow of our constitutional form of government”. The fourth federal law, 18 U.S.C. 1918 provides penalties for violation of oath office described in 5 U.S.C. 7311 which include: (1) removal from office and; (2) confinement or a fine.

The definition of “advocate” is further specified in Executive Order 10450 which for the purposes of enforcement supplements 5 U.S.C. 7311. One provision of Executive Order 10450 specifies it is a violation of 5 U.S.C. 7311 for any person taking the oath of office to advocate “the alteration ... of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.” Our form of government is defined by the Constitution of the United States. It can only be “altered” by constitutional amendment. Thus, according to Executive Order 10450 (and therefore 5 U.S. 7311) any act taken by government officials who have taken the oath of office prescribed by 5 U.S.C. 3331which alters the form of government other by amendment, is a criminal violation of the 5 U.S.C. 7311.

5 U.S.C. 3331:
“An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service...shall take the following oath: ‘I, AB, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.’”

5 U.S.C. 3333:
“...an individual who accepts office or employment in the government of the United States...shall execute an affidavit within 60 days after accepting the office or employment that his acceptance and holding of the office or employment does not or will not violate section 7311 of this title. The affidavit is prima facie evidence that the acceptance and holding of office or employment by the affiant does not or will not violate section 7311 of this title.”

5 U.S.C. 7311 (1):
“An individual may not accept or hold a position in the Government of the United States or the government of the District of Columbia if he (1) advocates the overthrow of our constitutional form of government...” [”advocate: to plead in favor of: defend by argument before a tribunal or the public; support or recommend publicly.” Webster’s Third New International Dictionary] ...shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year and a day or both”

Executive Order 10450 (in part):
Whereas the interest of the national security require that all persons privileged to be employed in...the Government shall be reliable, trustworthy, of good conduct and character, and of complete and unswerving loyalty to the United States... it is hereby ordered as follows:

(a)The investigations conducted pursuant to this order shall be designed to develop information as to whether the employment or retention in employment.. of the person being investigated is clearly consistent with the interests of the national security. Such information shall relate, but shall not be limited to the following:

(4)Advocacy of use of force or violence to overthrow the government of the United States, or of the alteration of the form of the government of the United States by unconstitutional means.”

This is all about the so-called “North American Union” project the globalists desperately want to go through. The first step is to destroy the borders and merge the populations of Canada, the US and Mexico.

The populations will just become worker drones to be “managed” by the moneyed elite from industry and DC.

The middle class, the backbone of this nation has to be destroyed.

Not only that. Wages of all but the elite have to be deflated. Bringing in unfettered numbers of hispanics to compete for lower-income jobs in the US will destabilitze neighborhoods, leading to more government control, and competition for jobs that will keep wages so low that people won't even be self-sufficient....while the elite pile up wealth and assets.

When it all falls apart, they'll retreat to their islands, gated communities, etc.

When it comes to Illegal Alien Amnesty...the GOP is pretty much the DNC, save a few.

If you are not deporting all Illegal Aliens, you support Illegal Alien Amnesty. Period

Lindsey Graham said on FOX News Sunday this morning he is expecting these new “citizens” to generate nearly a trillion dollars for the U.S. economy. Graham was so confident of this economic forecast he broke into song:

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
So let’s sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

That will fail. This is a game of "musical chairs"; everyone will become captives eventually.
