    FEDERAL COURT INJUNCTION AGAINST OBAMA AMNESTY GIVES MORE REASON FOR SENATE TO DEBATE

    FEDERAL COURT INJUNCTION AGAINST OBAMA AMNESTY GIVES MORE REASON FOR SENATE TO DEBATE DHS FUNDING BILL

    PUBLISHED:
    Tue, FEB 17th 2015 @ 10:58 am EST by Roy Beck

    The fact that the judicial branch has joined the House of Representatives and a majority of states in questioning the constitutionality of the President's executive actions on immigration should make it obvious that the Senate needs to proceed to a debate on the Department of Homeland Security funding bill and add its voice to this critical constitutional question.

    The ruling from U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanan of Texas is a most welcome sign for Americans unable to find a job. Without the temporary injunction against issuing work permits to illegal aliens, the federal government would have begun in March to force Americans to start competing with millions of illegal foreign workers for new jobs as they opened up.


    But the ruling is only temporary and only a first step in what will be an unpredictable appeals process in which the full weight of the federal government (through its Department of Justice) will fight to ensure that foreign citizens who have overstayed their visas or crossed borders illegally get the documents to obtain taxpayer-supported benefits and jobs.


    The courts are being asked to overturn the Obama amnesties on the basis of their being at odds with the will of Congress which is given authority over immigration by the Constitution.


    This makes it all the more important for Congress to speak clearly on its will. The DHS funding bill passed by the U.S. House does that by barring any spending on issuing documents to masses of illegal aliens.


    But Republican Sen. Heller of Nevada and all Senate Democrats have for weeks conducted a filibuster, refusing to allow the House-passed DHS funding bill to come to the Senate floor for debate.


    Several of the filibuster Senators during the fall campaigns stated their dissatisfaction with the very aspects of Obama's executive immigration actions that Judge Hanan criticized. Now we will see if the Senate will stand up for protecting the authority given it by the Constitution or if Sen. Heller and the Democrats will refuse to defend the Senate and leave it to the courts to decide.


    Here is my statement issued to the news media this morning:
    Struggling American families can find hope in the judge's ruling which at least temporarily halts the issuance of work permits in March that would have begun allowing millions of illegal foreign workers to compete directly with American workers for new job openings.

    "The Senate now needs to pass the funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security that would fully halt those work permits. The fact that the judicial branch has joined the House of Representatives and a majority of states in questioning the constitutionality of the President's executive actions on immigration should make it obvious that the Senate needs to proceed to a debate on the DHS funding bill and add its voice to this critical constitutional question." -- Roy Beck, President, NumbersUSA

    Judge’s immigration order leaves Congress in a tougher spot as Homeland Security shutdown looms

    By Paul Kane February 17 at 9:57 AM

    A federal judge left Congress in a tougher spot Tuesday with his order to temporarily halt the Obama administration's implementation of a new immigration policies, heightening tension as a Feb. 27 deadline looms for funding the Department of Homeland Security.


    Officially, House Speaker John A. Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said the ruling backed up their belief that President Obama's actions were unconstitutional, and that Senate Democrats should stop filibustering a funding bill that includes repeals of the presidential orders protecting up to 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation.


    Behind the scenes, both sides were trying to determine what impact the ruling would have on an already charged legislative atmosphere on Capitol Hill. Some said Republican leaders would now be able to point to the court case as the strongest venue for taking the fight on Obama's immigration orders -- potentially allowing for approval of overall funding for DHS without the policy riders restricting the president.


    Others viewed the ruling as more likely to encourage the far-right flank of Republicans to dig in for a fight and let funding for the department lapse rather than cede any ground on an issue they call "executive amnesty."


    Congress is out of session this week and does not return until Monday night. That will leave just four full days to reach a pact or see the partial shutdown of an agency tasked with protecting borders and airlines, responding to natural disasters, and helping assess domestic terror threats.


    "He doesn’t have the authority to take the kinds of actions he once referred to as 'ignoring the law' and 'unwise and unfair.' Senate Democrats -- especially those who've voiced opposition to the President’s executive overreach — should end their partisan filibuster of Department of Homeland Security funding," McConnell said in a statement


    "We will continue to foll the case as it moves through the legal process," Boehner said in his statement. "Hopefully, Senate Democrats who claim to oppose this executive overreach will now let the Senate begin debate on a bill to fund the Homeland Security department."


    House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) had harsh words regarding disagreement over the Department of Homeland Security budget, instructing reporters to "ask Senate Democrats when they're going to get off their ass and do something—other than to vote no." (AP)

    Conservative activists, along with allies such as Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), have pushed Boehner and McConnell to be willing to shut down DHS over the immigration issue, saying that Democrats will be blamed and Obama will eventually relent. Other Republicans fear a repeat of the October 2013 shutdown of the entire federal government, when the public disproportionately blamed the GOP Congress for the standoff.

    Many party elder statesmen have warned that a shutdown of the agency designed to protect against domestic attack would be particularly dangerous from a political perspective.


    "I think it would be terrible. The American people didn't give us the majority to have a fight between House and Senate Republicans. They want things done," Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Sunday on NBC's "Meet the Press". "We cannot cut funding for the Department of Homeland Security. We need to sit down and work this thing out. And there's ways we can address what the president did was unconstitutional. But it's not through shutting down the Department of Homeland Security. It's too serious."


    Most security workers would be deemed essential in a DHS shutdown and report to the border or to airports, but they would go without pay, while tens of thousands of administrative-level workers would be furloughed.

    Yes, we did. We want you "comprehensive immigration reform" kooks run out of Washington on a rail. We're sick and tired of listening to your welcoming bull while you crap on American Citizens. What is happening now is exactly why Americans gave the Republicans a majority. We want things done, and the highest priority is to stop amnesty, bring a complete end to illegal immigration and stop all new immigration for at least 10 years. That's what we want. That's why Republicans control the Congress. So quit your baby-sucking whining about "lets sit down and work this out". This isn't going to be "worked out". This problem is going to be solved. And we don't care about DHS. Most of us think its a useless agency for the most part, the exceptions are the Coast Guard, Secret Service and Border Patrol who should all be moved back to their original agencies, Coast Guard in the Department of Transportation, Secret Service to the Treasury Department and Border Patrol to the Department of Labor.
