    SESSIONS: DEMS MUST DEMAND VOTE AGAINST OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY OR TAKE BLAME FOR 'SCRUBBING AWAY' U.S. IMMIGRATION LAW


    Senate Democrats are complicit in helping President Barack Obama destroy American immigration law if they don’t demand a vote on the House-passed bill that would defund Obama’s efforts to grant executive amnesty to upwards of 5 million illegal aliens, Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a Friday statement.

    Sessions cited a report Friday morning from Politico that detailed how Senate Democrats are actually urging President Obama to grant an executive amnesty—but to do it after the November election to mitigate electoral consequences against them for his action.

    Sessions says the developments in the Politico article “ought to send shudders down the spine of those who care about our representative system of government” because it shows Senate Democrats, “instead of opposing the President’s executive amnesty,” are trying to “urge him to issue it after they face voters in November.”

    “The only thing that is more shocking than Senate Democrats’ support for the President’s planned executive amnesty is the cravenness of asking him to proceed beginning the day after the midterms,” Sessions said, speaking directly to voters nationwide. “Once again, powerful politicians are colluding with powerful interest groups to deny you, the American citizen, the protection of your laws and your voice in government. They don’t care what you want, or what you think–they scorn and mock our good and decent citizens for wishing their laws to be enforced. Never in recent memory has the divide between the everyday citizen, and the political elite, been as wide as it is now.”

    So dems know amnesty is unpopular, they know it will hurt them, they know the American people do not want it, and they know they are in trouble come election time so they want to handle it in an underhanded way.

    Issuing an executive order for amnesty to illegals is constitutionally illegal. Even Obama has admitted it's unconstitutional, but he says he's going to do it anyway. Democrats are OK with that. They just worry about the timing causing enough of an uproar in the electorate that they lose the Senate.

    They are not concerned about what their constituents want at all. They just want to stay in power, even if they have to break the law to do it.

    More Senate Democrats urge Obama to delay immigration order


    More top Democrats are pressuring President Barack Obama to slow down on immigration reform, further diminishing the chances that he’ll take sweeping administrative action before Election Day.

    Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) wants Obama to wait until after November. Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) said he has “concerns about executive action.” Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), who caucuses with Democrats, said it would be a “mistake” for the president to do anything significant.

    0bam@ wants to destroy the USA and the West, just like code pink wants, but he wants to blame it on the demand for cheap labor and the need for more Democrat votes. If he can start a civil war, he would be happy. The economy right now is as flat as a pancake.
