    AG Sessions Warns Congress: ‘A Price Will Be Paid’ if DACA Illegal Aliens Are Given A

    AG Sessions Warns Congress: ‘A Price Will Be Paid’ if DACA Illegal Aliens Are Given Amnesty

    by JOHN BINDER14 Nov 2017Washington, D.C.



    Attorney General Jeff Sessions warned that “a price will be paid” if nearly 800,000 illegal aliens are granted amnesty by the GOP-led Congress and President Trump.

    During a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee, Sessions told Rep. Steve King (R-IA) that Congress should be “careful” before they give an amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

    Sessions said in his exchange with King:

    SESSIONS: Well, the President, you know — President Obama — indicated multiple times that he felt that DACA, he didn’t have the power to do DACA in the way it was done. And eventually, they must have changed their mind and executed this policy to take persons who are in the country unlawfully and to give them lawful status, work permits and even participating in Social Security. So I felt for some time that that was not proper. A federal district court in Texas so held and the fifth circuit court of appeals also so held that it was unlawful. So what happened was, we helped work on the research, but the Department of Homeland Security withdrew the policy because it was not defensible in my view.


    KING: And established a date to close it down, March 5 of I think next year.


    SESSIONS: That’s right. The Homeland Security asked for time to wind this program down. And I thought that was appropriate.


    KING: And there’s a lot of public dialogue about what kind of legislation might we pass in conjunction with a DACA policy and that’s up in the air right now. I’m noticing the Democrats are saying we’re going to have everything we want on DACA or we’ll shut the government down. So it causes me to think about what should happen if Congress reaches an impasse and there is no passage of any legislation to extend the DACA policy. If the President should decide on or before that March 5 date or around that time that he wants to extend the DACA policy, what would your position be at that time?


    SESSIONS: Well, that’s hypothetical Senator King. I don’t think I should speculate on that. But I do think Congress will have to give it thought. We have a law now, it’s in place as Congress passed and Congress would have to change it.


    KING: I would just remark that I’m watching a lot of people be rewarded for violation of the Rule of Law and I appreciate your emphasis on Rule of Law and your testimony today multiple times coming back to that point…


    SESSIONS: Mr. King, I would just say, it is correct in my view and I think you probably share it, that something is lost whenever you provide an amnesty. A price will be paid if that’s done. But sometimes circumstances are such, it may need to be done, but we need to be careful. [Emphasis added]


    In September, Sessions announced on behalf of the Trump administration that DACA would officially end on March 5, 2018. Since then, however, the open borders, big business and cheap labor lobby have pushed Congress to pass an amnesty for the DACA illegal aliens.


    Sessions’ remarks on a potential DACA amnesty plan came just as the Republican establishment and Democrats are negotiating multiple amnesty deals whereby up to 3.3 million illegal aliens could be allowed to permanently stay in the U.S., causing a chain migration flow of up to 19 million foreign nationals over the next few decades, as Breitbart News reported.


    A DACA amnesty remains increasingly unpopular with Americans, Breitbart Newsreported, with fewer than 30 percent of voters now saying that an amnesty for the illegal aliens should be a priority for Congress.

    After reading the above I've come to the conclusion that AG Sessions does not support a DACA amnesty as some had previously suggested. Of course, I think it goes without saying, coming outright and saying "I do not support a DACA amnesty" is really not an option for him. I think he is now in a positions where showing such a political bias would only hurt his future relationship with the U.S. Congress and President Donald Trump.

    With a few honorable exceptions, see what the scum that pressures to call themselves our government do, the talk about amnesty for a group of people with the only limitation being if you fall within that group. They say 800,000 but, of course, it will be four times that many, even before chain migration. If they were honest they would put an exact numerical quota and no more than that. Their failure to set exact numbers for proposed legislation just illustrates what a sham their proposals are.

    But of course all the illegal should be threw out without apologies. The legal quota I propose for the number of people given any legal status is ZERO!

    Should the AG have a public opinion regarding this?

    <<As dictated by the official mission statement of the United States Department of Justice, the DOJ exists to “enforce the law and defend the interests of the United States according to the law.” It also strives to “ensure public safety against threats foreign and domestic” and to “ensure fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.” Though the specific efforts to uphold these precepts may vary between one administration and another, the general goal is to ensure that the laws of the United States are properly upheld and administered equally to all US citizens.>

    If this is the job of his department, he is failing miserably.

    Nowhere do I see he is suppose to have an opinion about a law - just enforce them.
