SESSIONS WARNS: IMMIGRATION STRATEGY 'THREATENS FOUNDATION OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC'
Breitbart ^ | July 15, 2014 | by MATTHEW BOYLE

Posted on 07/15/2014 6:24:45 AM PDT by Resettozero

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it.

“I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday.

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing crisis at the border, Obama plans to legalize anywhere from five to six million illegal alien adults in much the same way he did for illegal alien minors through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in summer 2012.

“Obama made it clear he would press his executive powers to the limit,” Garrett wrote on July 3, as cited by Sessions. “He gave quiet credence to recommendations from La Raza and other immigration groups that between 5 million to 6 million adult illegal immigrants could be spared deportation under a similar form of deferred adjudication he ordered for the so-called Dreamers in June 2012.”

Sessions cites another paragraph from that National Journal piece as well, in which Garrett reported that President Obama has “now ordered the Homeland Security and Justice departments to find executive authorities that could enlarge that non-prosecutorial umbrella by a factor of 10.”

“Senior officials also tell me Obama wants to see what he can do with executive power to provide temporary legal status to undocumented adults,” Garrett wrote. “And he will shift Immigration Control and Enforcement resources from the interior to the border to reduce deportations of those already here and to beef up defenses along the border.”

Save it.

Send it to your Senators and Representative.

Send it to ten friends and ask them to do the same.

All cultures are equal, all individuals are equal, and everyone DESERVES a fair living wage, whether or not they perform any productive function or useful labor.

Enforcers from the Sinaloa drug cartel are just the same as US physicians, society has just treated them differently.

Cannibals, those who practice human sacrifice, head hunters, Satan worshipers and those who war on their fellow man - they are all welcome here!

How could a vast army of those who resent America and covet her wealth, (created by generations of hard work following Christian principles); How could such an invasion threaten the US Republic? What difference does it make if they vote as a group to elect populist, socialist leaders to harvest the stored wealth of America and mortgage her future productivity for immediate consumption? And why would anyone suspect they would vote for such leaders? Given their voting history in Latin America?

Yes, I can’t see any problem at all.

Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—THREATENS FOUNDATION OF OUR CONSTITUTIONAL REPUBLIC.

But yet many say "it would be futile to try to impeach him"...and the House leadership wastes valuable time with a phoney lawsuit.

For anyone who thinks this President is incompetent and harming this nation through a series of blunders, you are severely misguided.

An incompetent leader would have accidentally done something right for the country by now.

Obama has shown to be VERY consistent in doing things to harm the nation and at this point the law of averages tells us that odds are he is operating in a very calculated and deliberate fashion.

This current administration is doing everything it can to tear this nation down and anyone that can see past the end of their own nose, should be able to see by now that it is by design.

The immigration fiasco has also proven to be the direct result of the President’s actions and once again, this administration is harming the country. Still think it’s incompetence?

Music to the infected, wax-filled ears of American liberals everywhere.

So, when is the military going to step in and do their Constitutional duty by removing this Domestic Enemy, per their sworn oath?
I, [name], 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.

Nobody else seems able to stop him.

L/S NAILS THE DISEASED BOBBAMBA MINDSET. Seems the Boob has a dog-eared working list from his "community organizer days". He checks off items that would most destroy America (or as he calls it--"transform it". Et voila---the executive order is penned.

All cultures are equal, all individuals are equal, and everyone DESERVES unlimited freebies from working Americans---especially those who can't or won't perform useful labor.....or who just prefer to live off others. Violent armed Sinaloa drug cartels are just the same as US physicians....society has just treated them differently. Cannibals, savages who practice human sacrifice, head-hunters, Satan worshipers, foreigners who despise Americans, all those engaged in armed conflict who openly declare war on us - they are all welcome.

Perhaps you're correct. But it's never too late to introduce some truth into any matter.

You are absolutely right.

He stated clearly, for all of America to hear, that he intended to “fundamentally transform the United States of America”, and to “remake America”.

He LIED, with the “art” of double meaning to his words, so that the gullible believed his promise of transparency and the return of high moral grounds in Washington, D.C.

Boobamba’s been lying in wait-—got into office under false pretenses. ....even his braindead opponent McPaine stupidly told us we should not fear an Obama presidency (grrr).

Boobamba is extracting revenge on America for all the years of discrimination he endured -—attending elites schools in Hawaii-—ivy league schools later-—and subjugation as Harvard Review editor.

VIDEO Gen. Michael Hayden: Treat Immigration Crisis Like Insurgency
Newsmax By Courtney Coren | 09 Jul 2014 12:19 PM / FR Posted by robowombat

GEN HAYDEN: The invasion is an insurgency---"a criminal enterprise that's so big and so powerful that, as a byproduct, it actually threatens the US government."

The only way to describe it......all they need are the guns....they know where the weapons are....and so does Obama. One of their oft-stated goals is to takeback the SW.....a counter-protest sign in Murietta announced "you are on stolen land."

This is being facilitated w/ our tax dollars by The Congressional Hispanic Caucus---Becerra, Guttierez, chief among them....and their allies......it’s a barbarian invasion---the savages have said they want everything we have. They would fundamentally transform America into a Third World....

And the stupid in the WH says its "our" responsibility to feed, medicate and shelter the barbarian hordes who want to destroy us.

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

Obama urged Congress to cough up $4 billion to deal with the flood of children from Central America – and others from parts unknown – crossing the border into Texas. Obama called this mess “an urgent humanitarian situation,” but what he did not do is take responsibility for almost single-handedly causing this mess two years prior.

Mexico made deal to send more illegal aliens to the U.S
Examiner.com ^ | 7/09/14 | Dave Gibson / FR by blueyon

On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico's border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor's Card, according to El Universal. (Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...

Amazing this lowlife pol had no concept of the ramifications of his words......

And putting down a supporter on b/cast TV made
the rest of his supporters wince, and think twice about voting for him.

‘Sorry...Cantor.’

I kinda liked Castor, reminds of castor oil, what folks used to take when constipation reared its ugly head, sorta like what happened to Cantor in his district. The folks decided a bowel movement was necessary and got rid of the waste.

Yep. Exactly what want to do to us but not to them. That is why they are very busy feathering their own nests. They think money will protect them, no, their only protection is the need Obama has for them, when their usefulness ends so do they. MSM I hope will be first.

Never really was told what it was for but Dad administered to me and the others once a year. I knew it was made from a poisonous plant and was good for "a Spring cleaning". Can still taste it in my memories like yesterday. YUK!
