    Jeff Sessions: Pro-Amnesty Candidate Must Not Get GOP Nomination in 2016

    by Tony Lee 29 Aug 2014, 6:28 AM PDT

    On Thursday, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said a pro-amnesty candidate must not get the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, indicating that he may play an active role in ensuring that immigration remains a significant issue during the primary season and that the interests of American workers are heard.

    On Thursday's Mark Levin Show, host Mark Levin said that he felt it was "important that we have a Republican nominee for president who addresses" President Barack Obama's lawless executive amnesty "head-on." Levin said that Republicans needed a candidate who would vow to do everything "we can to reverse what the president has done" because "it's bad immigration policy," and "it's bad in terms of the rule of law."

    "Don't we want a nominee who will say that?" Levin asked Sessions.

    Sessions replied, "Absolutely. You are exactly correct."

    "And the American people and the Republican voters need to now exactly where their candidate stands on the issue. And just those two questions, in my opinion, are the fundamentally key questions," Sessions continued. "We have every right to demand of our candidates where they stand on this issue. And if they are incorrect, they don't need to get the nomination of the Republican Party."

    After the flood of illegal immigrant juveniles from Central America and Obama's executive amnesty, immigration may be an even bigger issue to GOP primary voters than in past election cycles. In the 2008 Republican presidential primary, Sen. John McCain's campaign went on life support; McCain had to fly coach and carry his own bags when his fundraising dried up after he authored the comprehensive amnesty bill with the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA). President George W. Bush also supported that bill, which nearly cost McCain, whom conservatives never fully trusted, the nomination. In 2012, Texas Governor Rick Perry's polling numbers plummeted when he said that conservatives who opposed in-state tuition for illegal immigrants did not have "a heart." And Mitt Romney only secured the nomination by tacking to the right on the immigration issue, even supporting attrition by enforcement, calling it "self deportation."

    The GOP has gotten more conservative in opposing illegal immigration, and Sessions said "these candidates need to be inquired of with absolute clarity about where they stand."

    In the meantime, Sessions said he will try to force a vote in the Senate to block funding for Obama's potential executive amnesty and emphasized that "people need to be defeated in November" for the White House to get the message and the "dynamics" to be changed.

    Congress may still be on vacation, but Sessions (R-AL) has continued to be relentless and vigilant opposing Obama's potential executive amnesty.

    On Wednesday, he called out Senate Democrats for their "roaring silence" and warned that Obama's potential executive amnesty would be a "clear and present danger" to U.S. workers and national security at a time when ISIS terrorists have threatened to exploit America's lax visa policies to enter the country.

    Sessions said Obama's executive amnesty would be a green light and signal to everyone in the world, including terrorists who may want to do harm, to break America's immigration laws.

    "If implemented, the President’s new executive actions would functionally end what little remains of interior immigration enforcement, giving free license to every person in the world—here today or planning to come tomorrow—to violate our immigration laws with impunity," Sessions said.

    Sessions also said the White House's confirmation that it would meet its "self-imposed deadline" on executive actions that will harm American workers and threaten the country's security was equally "astounding."

    As Sessions noted, the "massive executive amnesty and work authorization for 5–6 million individuals who illegally entered the U.S., illegally overstayed a visa, or illegally defrauded U.S. immigration authorities" would enable illegal immigrants to "to compete for any job in America." On top of that, Obama may grant nearly 800,000 guest-worker visas to high-tech companies so they can give him cover for the executive amnesty. Many of the companies--like Cisco and Microsoft--that would utilize the guest-worker visas have laid off American workers at a time when there already is a surplus of American high-tech workers.

    Sessions said the result of all this "would be disastrous for struggling workers—coming on the heels of four decades of continued record immigration into the U.S., coinciding with falling wages and a shrinking middle class."

    On the national security front, Sessions mentioned that "ICE officers and USCIS officers" have said that "they are routinely barred from enforcing bedrock immigration laws such as visa overstays, illegal entry, and illegal residence—for both current and future immigration violators." Obama's executive amnesty would only make the situation worse.

    Laura Ingraham: Pro-Amnesty Republicans 'Not Off the Hook' on Border Crisis

    Laura Ingraham: Pro-Amnesty Republicans 'Not Off the Hook' on Border Crisis

    by Tony Lee 14 Jul 2014 114 post a comment
    Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham said that pro-amnesty Republicans like Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) who voted for the Senate's amnesty bill are also to blame for the current border crisis.

    On Fox News Sunday, Ingraham said the message from many pro-amnesty Republicans has been, "you will be able to stay here."

    "Republicans are not off the hook," she said. "If John Boehner had taken this comprehensive reform off the table early on, I don't think he probably would have had as many unaccompanied minors coming here now."

    Ingraham emphasized that the "the general sense of that is deportation won't happen even if Republicans are in charge" and the illegal immigrant children will "be able to stay here, go to public schools, get Obamacare."

    And on Monday, Ingraham, who was instrumental in powering Dave Brat to his shocking upset over House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), announced that she was "all in for Joe Carr" against Alexander in next month's primary. Carr has closed the gap and trails Alexander by just seven points in a recent poll conducted by a pro-Carr group.

    "I'm all in for Joe Carr," Ingraham said on her show. "I think... he's no nonsense, a citizen legislator he'll be and he'll be someone who will actually listen to the people. Politicians at some point do have to listen to the concerns of the people, not just the concerns of one or two, big, fat, interest groups like either LaRaza or the Chamber of Commerce. The people still count, don't they Lamar?"

    Carr said Ingraham's endorsement could be a "game-changing moment in the campaign" based on Ingraham's track record.

    "Laura Ingraham was one of the very first national voices who felt that our campaign against Lamar Alexander's brazen support of amnesty was credible and viable," he said in a statement. "After seeing the significant impact Laura had on the Dave Brat-Eric Cantor race, we believe this can be a game-changing moment in this campaign."

    Ingraham blasted Alexander for voting for the Senate's amnesty bill even after he was warned by law enforcement officials that the bill would exacerbate the border crisis by enticing more illegal immigrants from Central America.

    "Where was Lamar Alexander when we needed him?" Ingraham asked. "If we followed Lamar Alexander and his idea for immigration, we'd have an even bigger problem on our hands. So thank you for your Johnny-Come-Lately advice on putting the National Guard at the border. The National Guard to deal with the problem that you would have made worse."

    Ingraham compared Alexander to Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), saying Alexander "has big money support behind him... just like we had with Thad Cochran, another septuagenarian, who wanted your vote."

    "So old Thad got the big money to come in and Old Plaid," she continued. "Thad and Plaid. Thad and Plaid, the amnesty twins."

    Ingraham reiterated that Carr was "terrific on immigration" and was "way ahead of the curve on the effect that [unbridled mass immigration would have] on our infrastructure, our public schools, and STEM worker falsehoods."

    "You can't be returned to the Senate, term after term, when the only thing you're known for is your plaid," she said.

    On Fox News Sunday, Ingraham said, "Government has to do better by us. We have a lot of unemployment. We have a lot of concerns, the American people; let's renew the homeland."

    "Let's rejuvenate the homeland," she said. "We can deal with all these other issues, but we have to get Americans back to work. People are very, very concerned. I think it hurts the Republicans, hurts Obama, but the Republicans are not in the clear here. Their ratings are also bad."
