    Jeff Sessions on House Cave: The Fight ‘Is Only Beginning’

    by Caroline May
    3 Mar 2015

    Amid news that House Republican leadership intends to allow a vote on a so-called “clean” Department of Homeland Security funding bill, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) expressed dismay that Congress has surrendered its status as a co-equal branch and allowed President Obama’s executive amnesty to go ahead unchecked.

    “The Democratic Party has been completely unified in its defense of the President’s amnesty in the face of overwhelming public opposition—and in the face of the President’s own repeated declaration that his conduct was illegal,” Sessions, an immigration hawk, said Tuesday afternoon.

    “They voted in unison, messaged in unison, and their outside allies have launched third-party attacks against Republicans,” he added. Due to their unity in defense of Obama’s executive amnesty, Sessions argued that the Constitution, immigration system, and American people continue to suffer.

    “Essential to any sovereign nation is the enforcement of its borders, the application of uniform rules for entry and exit, and the delivery of consequences for individuals who violate our laws,” he said. “President Obama has nullified those laws, rules, and borders, and replaced those consequences with rewards.”

    The Alabama lawmaker further highlighted some of the repercussions of Obama’s executive amnesty, including providing work permits and government benefits to millions of illegal immigrants.

    “The President’s decree provides illegal immigrants with work permits, trillions in Social Security and Medicare payments, and billions in free cash tax credits—all benefits explicitly rejected by Congress. This takes jobs, benefits, and work opportunities directly from struggling and forgotten workers,” he said.

    According to Sessions, the American people “cannot be forever denied.”

    “Republicans will have to come to realize that it falls on their shoulders to give voice to the just demands of the American people for a lawful system of immigration that serves their interests, defends their jobs, protects their security,” he said.

    He further expressed hope that the judiciary would take up the task of halting Obama’s executive actions.

    “Nor can we allow the President to dismantle the constitutional powers of Congress, ceding our status as a coequal branch, on the hope the Judiciary intervenes to restore some fraction of that lost authority. When it comes to defending our sovereignty there is no ‘moving on.’ Now is not the time for recrimination; now is the time for renewed determination.”

    He added that the working people of the United States cannot be silenced for long and that the fight has only just started.

    “What motivates and excites a small group of open-borders billionaires has no connection to the hearts and lives of the working people of this country. They have been silenced for too long. Those who think this fight is over could not be more mistaken; it is only beginning,” he concluded. “When the power of the American people is finally leveraged, people will be astonished by the results.”

    Tuesday Morning, House Speaker John Boehner announced to his caucus that the House would take up a clean DHS bill as early as Tuesday.
