Exclusive - Sessions Warns All of Congress:
Obama´s New Immigration Strategy ´Threatens
Foundation of Our Constitutional Republic´

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/15/2014 9:28:19 AM

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Comments:
Sen. Sessions is an outstanding, honorable man and he is absolutely right! Where are the rest of the spineless Republicans?? They are silent. This isn´t the only thing Obama has done that threatens the foundation of our Constitutional republic. It is just one of many. How terribly depressing.

I´m with OP.

Interesting, just before reading this article, I listened to The Great One describe what Impeachment really means.

I highly recommend it as background to this article:

I have always liked Jeff Sessions a lot. He was "done wrong" by a Democrat Senate cabal when Reagan nominated him for a federal judgeship. As the OP stated, he is a man of honor.

La Raza activist Cecilia Munoz has been working in WH to get this invasion orchestrated with Obamas complicity.
Senator Sessions is absolutely correct and must be supported by all who care about preserving our Republic and protecting the health and welfare of Americans First.
When John McCain was campaigning, he ran commercials standing at border " build the damn fence."
He should be reminded of his pledge and not allowed to sell out Arizonans and America with Shumer.
Enforce the laws and support our Border patrol and ICE agents - let them do their jobs.
No more disease carriers, gang members and terrorists to be distributed across America under the guise of compassion.
Deport them ALL.

We are about to have our own "Palestinian" problem. AND like the Palestinians throughout the Middle East, they will be used as pawns to further political agendas and create social divides. Sen. Sessions is absolutely correct and the question will be, will anyone do anything to save what is left of this country.

This is nothing more than a Saul Alinsky styled mob action using helpless third world basket cases as his mob, which 0bama agitated and organized to achieve his goals. . . . . . It has failed miserably.

He used the same template with the Occupy Wall St. mobs who caused millions of dollars in damage and were agitated by 0bama and his union thugs. . . . . That failed as well.

Obama needs to be removed and / or neutralized by any legal means necessary post haste.

FTA: "To really fix the issue, he argues, politicians need to be willing to enforce immigration laws in America and stop dealing with special interests who want the border to remain unsecured and seek continually high levels of immigration, legal or illegal, given how it benefits them in the form of cheap labor."

God bless Andrew Brietbart and the news organization he left behind. Without it, a national forum would be greatly nullified as to the complete lawlessness of 0bama and his sycophants. Sen. Jeff Sessions is entirely correct that like terrorist organizations (Hamas, Hezbollah, and the PLO) negotiate for their "Palestinian" state while firing on Israel, 0bama & the dRATS will keep moving the line in the sand that the Constitution has drawn on our immigration policies. 0bama cannot unilaterally suspend laws that as President, he is required to uphold to protect US. This IS illegal and should be stopped by congress. The easiest way is to NOT give any money "ever" until the GOP is in power to control how it is spent, especially on border security.

American citizens are being betrayed by Obama, the democrat party AND Republican elites.
Everyday Americans have no one to turn to, so I guess we´ll have to pick up the banner and do what has to be done.
My spouse´s ancestors signed on with George Washington at Newburgh, NY and stayed until the war was over. They wanted the British out and sacrificed to run them out.

Obama is stacking the deck. Look at his recent appointment to head up HUD, Julian Castro. Julian´s Mother was one of the founders of La Raza which has set its goals to take back the states given up by Mexico in the Spanish American War. She raised her twin sons Julian and Joaquin to infiltrate in the the government to assist Mexico on taking back Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and Colorado. California is pretty much the culture of Mexico now, Texas is not far behind. The La Raza members and followers are in most local, state and national governments.

Joaquin is a Representative in Congress.

Julian is being groomed to run for VP in the Democratic Party.

Soon, the United States will be the suburb of Mexico or the Estado Unidos.

#19, you may have more current information on the subject than I, but the members of now defunct La Raza Unida whom I know, do not subscribe to "reconquista". La Raza was, at least ostensibly, formed to protect the civil rights of Hispanics in Texas and to help them get into office. The Castros´ mother, Maria del Rosario Castro (who never bothered to marry their father), is a loon, I agree.

There is a La Reconquista group whose goal is to, literally, reconquer those states you mentioned. They do not recognize the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Do you have a source for

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves. Along with his telling amnesty activists that "no force on Earth can stop us," this should figure prominently in Republican campaign ads for the rest of the season... a prospect that must have tightened a few sphincters among congressional Democrats, especially those who have been working overtime to distance themselves from Obama, or even pretend they are actively

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier. Of securing the border, Johnson said Homeland Security brings to bear a risk-based strategy, focusing resources on places where officials see migration and threats. He called it an

How to assess Eric Holder’s record and legacy as attorney general? Let’s start with what should be an obvious proposition: Holder’s policies and approach to the job were consistent with the person who appointed him — Barack Obama. Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong. According to a thorough review by the independent inspector general of the Department of Justice, Holder did not know about this

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

The Department of Homeland Security flew drones equipped with video cameras over the United States--away from border and coastal areas--for 1,726 hours from fiscal 2011 through this April, according to the Government Accountability Office. At times, the drones--or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)--were being used for purposes other than border or immigration enforcement. But the GAO does not have a full accounting of when and where the drones were flown, or what they were used for during the flight hours spent in “other airspace.” In a series of briefing slides provided in August to the staffs of the House and

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents?
