Sen. Sessions wants Americans to melt the phone lines on Monday on this issue. The U.S. Capitol Switchboard number is this: (202) 224-3121 but you can also call your individual senators and representatives. We have links in the left sidebar on this website.
Obama is planning executive orders to extend DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) to the illegal immigrant parents. DACA provides actual amnesty, Sen. Sessions explained in a Friday news release. They are immune from deportation and receive IDs and work permits.
DACA already covers “children” up to 30 years. We originally reported that he was going to extend it to immigrants up to age 30 but that is already in place.
President Obama is also considering giving some form of legalization to the illegal immigrant parents of American-born children. This would represent the largest number to be legalized.
In addition, President Obama has a plan to import young Hondurans directly into the U.S. as refugees.
Over the last three years, the Obama administration has given out work permits to 30 million people and the Senate-passed immigration bill would give them green cards, which are a path to citizenship.
Senator Jeff Sessions, pictured above, spoke on the Senate floor Friday and said that Congress must not authorize any funds until there is specific language that blocks Obama’s planned executive actions on amnesty.
Obama is about to grant amnesty to five to six million, nullifying our immigration laws., he warned.
“I believe any border legislation that is sent to us to the Senate by the House of Representatives, it should include specific language denying the president any funds to execute his planned work permit,” Sessions said.
Sen. Sessions warned in a news release Friday that how congress acts on the immigration spending bill will determine whether Obama is successful in nullifying our immigration laws.
Sessions wrote in the release about the NY Times piece published this week that elaborates on Obama’s ‘Honduran Refugee Program’ which will unilaterally expedite the transfer of young illegal Hondurans to the U.S. by flying them directly to the U.S. as supposed refugees, saving them the trip through Mexico.
Obama said today, in a meeting with Central American leaders, that we bear some of the burden for crime in their countries because of our appetite for drugs. He is a “blame America first” president. Using his logic, these countries are responsible for many of our people buying drugs and for our illegal alien drug gangs.
Sessions warned that “It has now been extensively reported that these executive actions will likely expand his Deferred Action program (DACA) to apply to an additional 5–6 million adult illegal immigrants. The existing DACA program has been widely misunderstood. The executive action did not, as The Hill writes today, only result in ‘deferred deportations for young undocumented immigrants.’ Illegal immigrants in the interior of the U.S. have already, as a practical matter, been immune from enforcement under this Administration. DACA applies to individuals up to 30 years of age and provides actual amnesty papers, photo ID, and work permits to illegal immigrants—who can then take any job in America.
The President’s planned executive orders would expand this permitting program to another 5–6 million illegal immigrants. This would effectively end immigration enforcement in America.
Sessions reminds us that “Days after telling La Raza convention attendees that he is confident President Obama will use executive action to give legal status to millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D., Ill.) predicted that the administration could legalize as many as 5 million people… Gutiérrez said he will meet with White House officials later in the day ‘to negotiate additional terms and avenues the president can use’ through executive action.”
The 60,000 children here illegally will lead to billions in costs but the Senate immigration bill passed last year in the Senate would create millions of new green card opportunities for foreigners, an estimated 30 million over the next decade.
“President Obama’s illegal work permits add to the already-huge flow of lawful work permits issued by the federal government,” Sessions said.
“Between 2000 and 2013, we lawfully issued almost 30 million work and immigrant visas. To put that number in perspective, 30 million is about the population of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala combined.”
Then of course their families will have to be admitted since Obama doesn’t want families separated.
After five years, anyone with a green card can apply for citizenship.
