    Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, Jeff Sessions Pushing for Defund Amnesty Vote

    WASHINGTON – Republican Sens. Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Jeff Sessions are pushing for a vote to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty in the “Cromnibus” spending bill Friday night, The Daily Caller has learned.

    The trio of conservative senators is hoping to get the defund vote onto the Senate floor as a “point of order,” which would force a procedural vote on the issue without Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid having to introduce it.

    The senators are pushing hard on Capitol Hill for the measure as of early Friday afternoon. If successful, the vote would take place late Friday night, after planned deliberations on the defense budget.

    The $1.1 trillion “Cromnibus” bill passed by the House and currently sitting in the Senate allocates more than $1 billion for programs to deal with unaccompanied illegal minors crossing the Southern border among other programs that Obama passed by executive order, including work permits and Social Security numbers for illegals.

    Well, I think we all know how this will probably turn out. However, I must give credit where credit is due ...... at least they are trying. That's a lot more than we can say about those following Bonehead's lead in the U.S. House. If it does come up for a vote, at least we'll know which Senator's specifically support Obama's amnesty.
