    Senator Jeff Sessions Warns All Congress: Obama Threatens our Constitutional Republic

    Senator Warns All Congress: Obama Threatens our Constitutional Republic

    July 15, 2014 By Jennifer Burke

    In a recent op-ed in USA Today, Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions said regarding the massive illegal alien invasion of the U.S. border and the Obama administration’s response to it, “When did we forget that a nation owes its first allegiance to her own citizens?” He continued his criticism of President Obama’s request for $3.7 billion in aid to deal with what the president has referred to as a humanitarian crisis.
    Today President Obama says he needs $3.7 billion from Congress to handle the crisis his lawless policies are creating. Amazingly, the funding request further advertises his administration’s amnesty efforts and our fraud-riddled asylum programs, while explicitly omitting any request for expedited deportation authority. The request is also not paid for. The administration wants to borrow every penny.
    Sessions is also making it abundantly clear that not only does Obama’s lawlessness, which has led to this crisis at the border, one that bears a financial strain on the country, it is also one that could destroy America as we know it.
    Known for his strong support of a secure U.S. border, Senator Sessions had a letter penned by him on the subject of the illegal alien invasion hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday. He cut to the chase from the very beginning by opening the letter with the statement, “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic.”
    Breitbart obtained a copy of the letter that details Sessions grave concerns about the impact of the lawlessness of the Obama administration regarding illegal migration into the United States.
    “As you know, over the last five and a half years, the President has routinely bypassed Congress in order to suspend enforcement of our immigration laws,” Sessions wrote. “The most dramatic of these lawless directives was the President’s 2012 Deferred Action Program for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), in which the president implemented by executive fiat legislation that Congress has three times rejected.”
    Sessions wrote that the president’s DACA program “has led to catastrophic results,” because it was “declaring to the entire world that America will not enforce its immigration laws against those who enter the country as minors” and that the U.S. will “freely grant them access to work permits and taxpayer resources.” Sessions wrote that Obama’s DACA policy and other policies “unleashed a flood of new illegal immigration into the country” and that this is “the disaster that he created.” As such, Sessions argues that politicians should not just pass new legislation or throw money at the problem; they should work to reverse the president’s executive overreaches.
    He also made clear his belief, based upon the Constitution, that standing strong against any funding requests by Obama is imperative. To approve the requests for additional funding to care for those who have entered the country illegally in massive numbers would be to aid and condone Obama in his failure to uphold and enforce the law. Standing strong against this funding request transcends politics, says Sessions. He closes by stating, “Congress cannot surrender to this lawlessness. Acting in defense of Congress, our constituents, and their communities, we must stand firm. This transcends politics. It is about our duty as constitutional officeholders. It is about the solemn oath we all took as Members of Congress.”

    Obama's Amnesty Threatens To Shut Constitution

    Amnesty: Pundits warn that a funding fight over the president's move to grant de facto amnesty to illegal aliens threatens a politically risky government shutdown. But there's something much more important at stake here.

    The Founders had good reason to give Congress the power of the purse: Short of impeachment, it's the most effective way to stop a lawless president from disobeying the will of Congress and usurping powers not granted by the Constitution.

    The question is: Will Congress use this power to thwart President Obama's shredding of the Constitution with his executive amnesty plan?

    Incoming Senate Budget Committee Chairman Jeff Sessions is on record as opposing any long-term budget resolution that would include funding for this executive travesty. He wants a short-term bill to get us to the point where the new Congress can fund everything except the Homeland Security Office responsible for carrying out the president's amnesty plan.

    "This executive amnesty scheme will give work permits, photo IDs and Social Security numbers to millions of illegal immigrants, taking jobs directly from unemployed Americans. Congress must not fund this effort," Sessions said a week ago.

    Liberal talking heads and administration spokespersons are again warning of a government shutdown and its political peril for the GOP. After the 2013 shutdown, when the GOP controlled only the House, they also went ballistic, blaming Republicans for putting barricades in front of veterans in wheelchairs who were trying to visit the World War II Memorial.

    Yet somehow the GOP recovered in an election in which voters were not too stupid to realize that they could no longer trust Democrats with purse strings or power. Go ahead, Mr. President, make our day.

    Even if a shutdown were to happen, and Sessions' piecemeal approach seems designed to prevent it, the media and the White House could not blame it on an intransigent GOP House of Representatives with the president an above-the-battle bystander. This time, the bills would be on his desk, and it would be his choice.

    There's more at stake here than mere political fortunes. We are at the constitutional tipping point that Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley warned us about as Obama continues to wield executive authority that he himself once said he did not have.

    We live in a constitutional republic, and the president who says he cannot wait for the Congress to act ignores a Constitution that says he has to. Article I, Section 8 gives Congress exclusive authority to "establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization" and Article II, Section 3 says that it's the president's duty "to take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed."

    Professor Turley told the House Judiciary Committee at a Dec. 3 hearing that Obama's abuse of executive power has grown to the point that "he's becoming the very danger the Constitution was designed to avoid."

    It's time to protect the Constitution. Don't show him the money, Congress.
