Sessions: Border Crisis ‘A Direct Failure of Presidential Leadership’
dailysignal.com ^ | July 10, 2014 | Philip Wegmann

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said President Obama would rather play politics than follow the law to remedy the humanitarian crisis festering at the southern border.

“This is a direct failure of presidential leadership,” Sessions said Thursday at the Eagle Forum’s annual leadership conference. “I’ve never seen anything like this steadfast refusal to follow the law.”

Session said the president’s refusal to deport young illegal immigrants gathering at the border lends credence to the amnesty rumors in Central America that fuel the crises. He said if Obama instead would “establish clarity,” it would cause all the “anger and frustration would go away.

“We are not opposed to immigrants—we admit a million people a year,” he said. “We’re a generous nation and we believe in immigration, but it’s unthinkable not to have a lawful process.”

Sessions said Obama should take a play from his predecessor’s playbook and draw a hard diplomatic line. According to Sessions, the George W. Bush administration reduced illegal arrivals by two-thirds in three months and by 90 percent within six months by taking a “firm stand” during a similar crisis with Brazil.

But Obama, Sessions said, is more concerned with political victories and pushing his own agenda. Although the White House initially sought a legislative solution, Sessions expects the president will “start a media campaigns to say it’s Congress’ fault.”

According to Sessions, Obama has communicated to lawmakers that “if you won’t give me amnesty, I won’t enforce the law.”

If I posted how I really feel about this president and his minions, I’d be banned from this site. However, I’m watching Hannity right now and one thing stood out to me - those who are in the detention centers are calling home telling others how well and great they are being treated here - so come on up. This is why I think those involved in humanitarian aide should cease and desist - that includes Glenn Beck and his “charitable” focus. Feed them, and then send them home.

It’s not a failure of his leadership. It’s his plan, exactly. Bring them in by the trainload, distribute the future voters into districts throughout the country where they will help democrats the most.

And the foreign influenced Bishops are happily helping.

He has no idea what’s being done. People must recognize that Obama has only bad intentions for the United States.

I would have to reply to the Mr. Shelby that he has been around for a hell of a lot longer than Obama.

He needs to look in the mirror. All of this destruction has been wrought during the tenure of these so called conservatives.

League City, Texas bans illegals:

.
RESOLUTION NO. 2014-_______ A RESOLUTION OF THE CITY OF LEAGUE CITY, TEXAS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH, SAFETY, AND SECURITY OF OUR CITIZENS AND COMMUNITY; AND PROVIDING FOR OTHER MATTERS RELATED TO THE SUBJECT WHEREAS, the citizens of League City, Texas recognize their duty as law-abiding citizens to act in accordance with the U.S. Constitution and the Texas Constitution, and agree that their right to life, liberty, and property shall not be infringed; and WHEREAS, the federal government has failed to protect the homeland in accordance with Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, Texas has the right and obligation to protect its citizens in accordance with Article 1, Section 1 of the Texas Constitution:

Freedom and Sovereignty of State.

Texas is a free and independent State, subject only to the Constitution of the United States, and the maintenance of our free institutions and the perpetuity of the Union depend upon the preservation of the

right of local self- government

, unimpaired to all the States.

And is supported by Article 1, Section 29 of the Texas Constitution:

Provisions of Bill of Rights Excepted from Powers of Government; To Forever Remain Inviolate.

To guard against transgressions of the high powers herein designated, we declare that everything in this (Texas) “Bill of Rights” is excepted out of the general powers of government, and shall forever remain inviolate, and all laws contrary thereto, or to the following provisions, shall be void.

WHEREAS, the citizens of League City Texas are greatly concerned regarding the ongoing massive influx of illegal aliens seeking unauthorized entry to the United States; and

WHEREAS, it is estimated that more than 90,000 minors will arrive in the United States during the 2014 fiscal year and an additional 145,000 illegal alien minors in 2015 fiscal year, with most expected to remain in Texas cities and communities; and

WHEREAS, the leaders of League City question the impact that the sudden influx of school-age illegal minors will have on our Independent School Districts’ (ISD) educational funding, school resources, campus security, and health safety for our children; and

WHEREAS, health advisories report that many illegal aliens suffering from diseases endemic in their countries of origin are being released into our communities; and

WHEREAS, the federal government is actively seeking more locations within Texas towns and counties to accommodate the unprecedented overflow of illegal aliens and unaccompanied minors; and

WHEREAS, the increasing volume of illegal aliens is already bankrupting some cities and counties in the State of Texas by overwhelming the local medical, educational, law enforcement, and judicial systems; and

WHEREAS, members of dangerous transnational criminal organizations and radical Islamic terror groups continue to exploit the situation to infiltrate the United States for the purpose of establishing criminal activity, terror cells, and training operations within our homeland; and

WHEREAS, without a secure border Texas cities and communities cannot protect the health and safety of their citizens; NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE CITY COUNCIL OF THE CITY OF LEAGUE CITY, TEXAS, as follows:

Section 1. That all agencies of the City of League City are instructed to refuse requests or directives by federal agencies to permit or establish any facility for the purposes of processing, housing, or detaining any illegal aliens, designated as “refugee” or otherwise.

Section 2. That in order to control the potential threat of communicable diseases reported to be prevalent among illegal aliens, all appropriate agencies of the City of League City are instructed to prudently exercise the City’s police power in any manner necessary to protect the health, safety and welfare of the citizens of League City.

Section 3. We hereby appeal to our state legislators and elected officials for action and accountability to urgently address the continuing influx of illegal aliens across our border. •

Through State executive and legislative actions demand that the Federal government provide additional resources for new and/or existing Border Patrol checkpoints, and employ a contiguous physical barrier where strategically prudent. •

Demand the Texas State Legislature to enhance state smuggling and human trafficking laws, and provide civil liability protections for Texan land owners against criminal trespassers. •

Demand the Texas State Legislature abolishes any and all state-controlled or sponsored magnets that exacerbate the problem of rampant illegal immigration, such as (but not limited to): in-state tuition subsidies, welfare benefits, and free non-emergency health care for illegal aliens. •

Require the State to perform a cost/benefit analysis of the illegal alien presence and report that cost to Texas taxpayers and state agencies. •

Pass legislation to prohibit “sanctuary cities” which restrict law enforcement from determining the immigration status of detainees after the commission of a crime within our communities.

Section 4. That civic responsibility demands that community and state leaders begin crisis planning immediately to address the unprecedented wave of foreign minor school age children that could be enrolled in Texas schools this summer; and

Section 5. That the City of League City, State of Texas, calls on other communities and jurisdictions to join with us in this action by passing similar Resolutions.

Section 6. That copies of this Resolution be immediately transmitted to the Governor of the State of Texas; the President of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives of Texas’ legislature; each individual legislator that represents our City in the State of Texas; the Commissioner’s Court of Galveston County; and the Sheriff of Galveston County.

PASSED AND APPROVED on the _______ day of July, 2014. _________________________________ TIMOTHY PAULISSEN, Mayor ATTEST: _______________________________ DIANA STAPP, City Secretary

This 6 minute video may help even the dullest no/low info morons understand what they have done. (Then again...) With assists from “academia”, liberal Jews (no, I am NOT an anti-semite but support Israel’s right to exist) and a few others, the 47% no/low info voters hooked on “free chit” put a MAD MAN in the Spite House! And if you thought the last 6 years were insane, wait until next year!
