Here is reason number 12,486 why Trump needs to stop betraying his campaign promise and actually rescind Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty.
While Republicans on the House floor were busy forcing the military to fund sex-change operations and fight global warming, members of the House Appropriations Committee slipped in an amendment to a funding bill allowing illegal aliens amnestied by Obama’s illegal DACA program to seek employment with the federal government.
Yesterday, the House Appropriations Committee, which is full of liberal Republicans, approved the FY 2018 Financial Services appropriations bill. The bill also funded general government provisions, including those related to personnel. Rep. Pete Aguilar, D-Ca., proposed an amendment allowing those illegals authorized to be employed by Obama’s edict under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program to be eligible for employment by the federal government or companies where a majority stock is owned by the federal government. Rather than blocking the amendment or at least forcing a roll-call vote so that we can bring the amnesty supporters out of the shadows and document them, Rep. Frelinghuysen allowed it to pass by voice vote. Thus we have undocumented supporters of amnesty.
When there was a call for a recorded vote, Frelinghuysen denied it.
That is your GOP majority for you.
Folks, this is a mockery of democracy. Supporting and continuing the illegal acts of a president, irrespective of your politics on the underlying issue, are what is turning us into a banana republic. Moreover, as I noted earlier this week, the promise of amnesty is what is likely propelling the uptick in border crossings, despite the hot weather along the border. What message do you think it conveys to them when they see they can come and get a government job as long as they are younger than 35? And believe me, even though conservative media will be focused on Don Jr. and Russia and remain oblivious to the GOP betrayals in Congress and Trump’s waffling on DACA, this is not lost on the extensive legal network propelling the border invasion. They find out quickly.
What this demonstrates is that as long as Trump continues to service Obama’s amnesty, liberals in both Congress and the judiciary will consider it legitimate law. This is further exacerbated by courts continuing to mess with Trump’s lawful immigration order, despite the Supreme Court’s ruling. How can the president uphold Obama’s illegal amnesty while the courts continue to humiliate him for his legitimate executive order?
Recently, the president suggested: “What I’d like to do is a comprehensive immigration plan.” He would be well served to start small by following the law, national sovereignty, and his campaign promise, and terminate DACA.
The ball is now in your court, Mr. President. Unless you want an illegal alien working as your next chief of staff.
