On Thursday, Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), who have arguably been the two most influential conservatives in stopping amnesty legislation, urged their colleagues to put more pressure on President Barack Obama, so he does not unilaterally grant temporary amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants.
In a colloquy with Cruz on the Senate floor, Sessions said Obama's potential executive actions represent an "exceedingly grave threat that go[es] beyond anything we've ever seen in this country" and "threatens the very constitutional framework of our republic and the very ability of this nation to even have borders."
He vowed that the "American people will not allow it to happen" if they discover what is going on. He said it was now up to members of Congress to rally the nation against Obama's potential grants of amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.
Referencing a letter that he and 21 other Senators sent to Obama warning him not to nullify the country's immigration laws, Sessions said every Senator should back Cruz's bill to prevent Obama from extending the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to future illegal immigrants.
Cruz has also introduced legislation that would make it easier to deport illegal immigrant children from countries other than Mexico and Canada and require the federal government to reimburse states and local governments for dealing with the border crisis.
Sessions said Congress rejected Obama's amnesty plan "under the circumstances he advocated" and noted that "he has no power to go forward and go beyond that, and we're not going to allow it to happen. It's wrong."
"This president is not going to get away with unilateral amnesty," Sessions said. "This Congress will be held to account."
The White House will meet with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus on Friday to discuss executive actions and, according to Rep. Luis Gutierrez,

Sen. Cruz also said that the 7.3 BILLION dollars that the President wants to use to provide homes HERE would be enough to fly all the children back home to their parents, and that’s in 1st class seats.
He also said a great deal about the unbelievably hideous treatment those children received on their trip here from the guides the parents paid to bring them here. They were sometimes forced to kill or maim each other, among other horrible things.
And they are only here so that they can later send for their parents.

A serious Israeli-style double security fence could be built from the Pacific to the Gulf in three months, anytime our "leaders" had the will to build it.
Why don't we demand it in the coming election? Take a pledge, or lose your office.
