Yesterday he took to the Senate floor to call out the President on his unlawful attempt to bypass the Congress and the Constitution with his proposal to give executive amnesty to some five million lawbreakers who have entered the country illegally. The good Senator challenged his fellow lawmakers to take a stand, saying that now is the time for them to either stand up for a nation under law or suffer the consequences of their shameful action before their constituents.
You see, in spite of what the mainstream media says and what the President fanatically pushes, an overwhelming majority of Americans know that the border is being swarmed by illegals and that Obama has tied the hands of the brave Border Patrol agents to do their jobs. Most of them have been relegated to car pool duty, bringing illegals in to processing centers or even caring for young illegal children or mothers. And the dirty little secret is that most of those being brought in are not young children or mothers, they are gang members and other older citizens not even covered by Obama's illegal executive orders.
A poll released by The Economist/YouGov.com shows that 80% of Americans want the illegals returned to their home country. And when you broaden the scope of questioning to Obama's immigration policies in general, Obama only gets a 62% favorable rating from his own party. Only 21% of citizens classifying themselves as independents, 32% of the moderates, 23% of whites and 42% of Hispanics approve. So Obama doesn't even have a majority of Hispanic citizens, probably because so many of them think that any newcomers should have to follow our laws as many of them who have been naturalized did. And while the black community isn't included, African Americans are rapidly finding out that the newcomers are likely to take the jobs of their young people, a group that already suffers from higher unemployment than anyone else in America.
America, maybe Obama truly wants a constitutional crisis, some even think he is deliberately pushing his opposition to file for impeachment thinking that the minorities in America will reward him by punishing those who propose it. I myself don't think that impeachment is necessarily the way to go, but I also don't think that Obama has any clear sailing on things today as even his natural constituency sees that he has put himself above the law. I think most Americans now recognize this. Perhaps action by Congress to defund unconstitutional programs is the best course of action.
If he pulls the trigger on an executive amnesty for millions of illegals, I think the surge of American public opinion will be so great that even the spineless in Congress will have to take notice. We Americans are a strange people, slow to rise to action, but when we do it becomes a tsunami that can't be ignored. And great men like Jeff Sessions will always rise to the occasion to lead the way.
Let's send the President a message that he is wrong and must stand down. Seal the border, return those who don't belong here, and then look at the law to determine IF they must be changed, not HOW. Only then should the conversation continue. And the convesation must be an open one, involving rank and file citizens, not dictated by Obama, the Chamber of Commerce, certainly not LaRaza, or weak kneed representatives who have lost touch with their constituents and their duty.
And once again, thank you, Senator Sessions, for standing up for the law and for common sense. God bless you in the struggle ahead. We've got your back.
