Melt Down Senate's Phone Lines, Force Reid to Allow Vote on Executive Amnesty

Exclusive–Sessions: Melt Down Senate's Phone Lines, Force Reid to Allow Vote on Executive Amnesty

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is throwing down the gauntlet again. He is calling on every American citizen to call their U.S. senators and demand to know where they stand on President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

Sessions, in a statement exclusively provided to Breitbart News, berated House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, calling on Reid to allow a vote on the House-passed measure that would block President Obama’s attempts to continue or expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty to millions more illegal aliens.

“Recent developments suggest the President’s planned executive amnesty could be increasingly imminent and broad in scope,” Sessions said, citing how Pelosi has called on the President to give the “broadest possible” executive amnesty to perhaps as many as ten million illegal aliens.

“House Democrat Leader Pelosi – clearly one of the White House’s closest allies – has just urged the President to issue ‘the broadest possible’ executive actions,” Sessions said. “Open borders groups have grown bolder and louder in their unlawful demands, launching a campaign for the President to ‘go big,’ and demanding that he ‘stand up’ to Congress and ‘expand DACA.’”

Sessions wonders whether Congressional Republicans – and even Democrats up for re-election this year – will stand up to the President to assert the legislature's role in writing the laws of the country.

“Will Congress defend itself? Will it defend the country's laws, its people, and the idea that a nation has enforceable borders that cannot be waived away with the flick of a pen?” Sessions said. “While the Senate recesses, activist groups and special interest lobbyists are huddling with the White House to implement through executive action... which Congress explicitly rejected. These are the same groups who met to devise the Senate’s ‘Gang of Eight’ plan, until that effort was exposed and then halted by the American people and their representatives in the House. It is chilling to consider now that these groups, frustrated in their aims by our Constitutional system of government, are plotting with the Obama administration to collect their spoils through executive fiat.”

Sessions specifically cited a report from the Associated Press that details how White House officials “are making plans to act before November's mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally.” The officials, according to the AP report, include Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, White House Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Munoz, and White House Counsel Neil Eggleston, and the AP writes that they “have been working to chart a plan on executive actions Obama could take, hosting frequent meetings with interest groups.”

Working alongside the White House in favor of this plan, the AP wrote, is the U.S. Chamber of Commerce – a business group that has poured tens of millions of dollars into backing amnesty.

Sessions warns increased immigration could depress wages and make it harder for the unemployed to find work. “So, with American workers hurting, special interest groups are collaborating with the White House on measures that would pull down wages and impoverish working Americans?” Sessions said, before calling on the Senate – and specifically Reid – to allow senators to vote on the House’s anti-DACA measure.

“The steps that must be taken are clear: the Senate must vote on the House-passed measure to stop these unlawful actions,” Sessions said. “It is true that Majority Leader Reid is blocking it from a vote. But Reid acts only with the blessing of his members in the Democrat conference – so the American people have the power to force it to a vote through their elected senators.”

In a recent interview with Breitbart News, Sessions said Reid is the “palace guard” of the Obama agenda – and that Democratic U.S. senators should stop blindly following Reid and Obama.

“Any senator who fails to request such a vote is complicit in these planned actions,” Sessions said in his Tuesday evening statement. “The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our immigration laws to be enforced. But the politicians have refused. Now these planned executive actions would nullify our laws, invite a massive new wave of unimpeded illegality, and strip the American people of their lawful right to have their jobs and their communities protected.”

Sessions said the President must be halted and that the American people – if they call their U.S. senators, especially the Democrats – can make it happen.

“This must be stopped,” Sessions said. “And the American people have the power to stop it. That begins with asking a simple question: where do your senators stand?”
