The House holds the purse strings. It can quit funding anything it wants. It’s the ultimate fail safe for situations exactly like this.

If the House decides to defund something, it doesn’t go to the Senate for a vote. It’s a done deal. The funds are simply withheld.

Anything the House doesn’t like, it can just shut it down.

There’s a reason why folks out here have had it with the GOPe, and it centers on their refusal to muster the courage to defend Conservatism.

F the GOPe, and or the RNC.

I back Cruz’s play here. Excellent.

Pretty hard to process paperwork with an empty office.

If Obama wants to play hardball, the house can simply furlough all immigration services employees that process immigration paperwork.

How do you do that. You simply defund the employees that handle that paperwork.

Nobody gets a green card. Nobody is processed. End of argument.

Obama comes up empty.

"Do you really think he is someone you can trust with border security?"

Absolutely NOT.

Cruz supports the legalization of those illegals who have already established residence here.

But he's right on this one and he does support the rule of law, generally.

And then remind everyone that any monies spent against the ban represent felonies that will be prosecuted after Zero leaves office.

No H1B visas either: good way to peel off some of the Chamber of Treason types from a general amnesty push.

>>I hope we all get a chance to vote for Cruz in 2016.<<

What a blessing that would be. So, curious and just for fun, who would you see as his VP?

What would his cabinet look like?

So.....don't mind if I start.

Ted Cruz / Trey Gowdy 2016
Ted Poe DOJ
Sarah Palin Sec. of State
Oliver North Sec. of Defense
Jeff Sessions FBI director
Rand Paul Paul Treasury Sec.
Dr. Ben Carson Surgeon General
Alan Keyes press secretary (just kidding / long winded)
Sheriff Joe Arpiao Atty Gen.
Bobby Jindal...EPA
Rick Perry...commerce dept.
Mike Huckabee...Amb to Israel
John Freakin Bolton...Amb. to the anti-American U.N.
DHS...shut it down
TSA...shut it down
Dept. of Energy....close the doors
IRS...putt’em in jail

” - - - “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 Tuesday. “ Because of President Obama’s amnesty, children are being abused and exploited by dangerous drug cartels and transnational gangs.” - - - “

Lead on Ted, make us proud!

That’s pretty much the way I see it too.

I do want to say that I agree with H1-B Visas in principle, because there are times when we need to bring knowledgeable people in. It would be people well versed in any specialty that we didn’t have experts in. Wernher Von Braun would be a good example, leaving any side issues aside for the moment.

IMO, today we bring people in based on willingness to work for less rather than actual need for special expertise.

We have people let go in the same fields at times. Nobody can tell me they couldn’t be retrained and brought up to speed in a short period of time. We should be seeking to get people off welfare and unemployment rather than bringing in foreign nationals to will lock our citizens out of their field.
