Louie Gohmert: If Obama Legalizes 5 Million Illegals, Cut Off White House Funding

Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) joined Gibson with the latest on Obama’s plan of granting amnesty to illegals. Gohmert told Gibson that some of the illegal immigrants are admitting that they are not fleeing gang violence but are paying gang members to sneak them in illegally into America.

On stopping Obama’s agenda, Gohmert said when A President is completely lawless it is time to shut down funding to anyone who will act illegally. We must use the powers of the purse granted by the constitution to reign in Obama.

Didn’t the House approve a continuing resolution through the end of the year? If so, any bill the House passes to defund will never see the floor of the Senate.

Force Boehner to resign as Speaker, and THEN Impeach Obama with New House Speaker Louie Gomert, Jim Jordan or Trey Gowdy.

Do nothing, and US Voters may find no EFFECTIVE reason to vote for a do nothing Republican slate of Candidates in November, 2014.

Words well spoken by Representative Gohmert but words are cheap. The people want to see some action. Besides, if Obemba does allow amnesty then it is already too late.

How would his executive order override existing immigration law? He has no authority to to legalize illegal aliens.

I imagine he could just say the ICE would not chase them or deport them, de-facto giving them amnesty of some sort.

He cannot make them citizens and he cannot “legalize” them.

Unlikely to happen with Vichy Republicans in the leadership.

First thing that needs to happen is remove Boehner and his cronies. Then get Constitutional Conservatives who know how to wage political war on the Democrats.

Whether he says he will legalize them or not he CAN’T as it is unconstitutional.

As per Article 1 Section 8: The Congress shall have the power to....establish a uniform rule of naturalization.”

Even if Congress doesn’t stand up to him on this the USSC should slap it down as being unconstitutional.
