Skip to comments.Ted Cruz: Boehner's Immigration Plan Will Not Solve Border Crisis

The evidence shows that the amnesty President Obama announced in 2012 is driving record numbers of immigrants to enter our nation illegally, Cruz said in a statement his office released. Because of President Obamas amnesty, children are being abused and exploited by dangerous drug cartels and transnational gangs. We must put an end to any expansion of this amnesty that puts countless numbers of vulnerable individuals, both immigrants and U.S. citizens alike, at risk. The only way to stop the border crisis is to stop Obamas amnesty. It is disappointing the border security legislation unveiled today does not include language to end Obamas amnesty. Congress cannot hope to solve this problem without addressing the fundamental cause of it.
Boehners working group, which is led by Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), did not include language from a bill Cruz and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) offered. Their bill would block funding for the administration to implement amnesty via executive order through continuation or expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, has called on lawmakers to back Cruz-Blackburn or remain complicit in the nullification of our borders.
Sessions on Tuesday also blasted the Boehner-Granger plan, saying it was a surrender to a lawless president.
Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions, Sessions said. Congress must speak out and fight against them. It must use its spending power to stop the Presidents executive amnesty. That the House leaders

Boehner’s in on the fix. The lawsuit is a sham to make it look like they are trying to stop the president. Hell he probably told him to file it agInst him because it’s just been way too easy running roughshod over the will of the American people.

"I will protect you again, as I have in Fast&Furious, and the IRS.
We continue to bow in reverence for you, my most beloved King
... who has made me, and my staff and family ... EXEMPT."

the principle that denies to government officials
an exceptional position before the law and which
subjects them to the same rules of conduct
that are commands to the citizen."

but protects the corrupt from you -
you know your nation is doomed."
Ted you stop this invasion and your presidency is guaranteed. Totally.
What can be done to start a “SHE SOLD OUT!” protest at Granger’s campaign HQ in Fort Worth? At her other offices?
Would a petition drive to replace Granger on November’s ballot with an “American Patriot” be in order?
Good luck, Texas! You deserve better than that RINO.
You have to ask, “Why is Granger in such a rush to “fix” the immigration “problem” WHILE HARRY REID CONTROLS THE SENATE?
No voting privileges for illegals, ever. Foreigners do not have the right to choose the leaders in our country.
It will get the Senate Amnesty bill moving
Bonor is owned by the Chamber of Commies.
Cruz should try to cut off funding for everything. And each time McCain or McConnell say it’s not the right way to do it, ask them “Then what do you suggest? Nothing? So, you’re all for children being murdered by drug cartels?”
When the courts rule against boner, and they will, Obama will then have the authority to do anything he wants knowing there’s nothing that can stop him. Boner knows this and I agree with you. He’s in on it.
This administration is playing the LIVs emotions and lowered cranial capacity like a fine tuned fiddle. They are dullards they don’t have a clue. I don’t even know if they have a clue how deception can be used o manipulate them. Lord help us.
I am becoming more and more impressed with Ted Cruz every day. I think it would be an absolute tragedy if he wasn’t the 2016 Republican presidential nominee. IMO, anyone who isn’t impressed with Ted Cruz needs to have an endless series of C.T. Scans and MRIs to find out what’s wrong with them. (On the plus side, we now have ObamaCare so these tests will be free!/sarc) I’m not saying that Ted Cruz is infallible—because no one is—I’m just saying he’s the best politician we’ve had in ages! I hope Republican politicians do not take Alan Dershowitz’s advice and truly underestimate Cruz so he can then beat them and they wouldn’t even know what hit them. He is one of a handful of politicians that truly puts our country’s needs ahead of his own ambitions. Go Ted Go!!
