FOR YOUR INFORMATION.....and ACTION (if you choose)!!!!
(CAA charges for their faxes...so you may want to call, e-mail or fax your own messages to Congress!!)
Just when you think it can't get any crazier....Obama (the community organizer) steps over Congress and the will of the people to rule his own way...again!! Obama had PROMISED illegal foreigners and their demanding open border activists and lobbyists that he would grant an amnesty...and by golly he's going to do it...even if he has to grant it through the back door of the White House!! Apparently Obama will stop at nothing to get his way and fulfill his promise to his future voters...front door or back door!!!
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) is sponsoring a bill that would temporarily freeze the Obama administration’s power to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants. Please ask your members of Congress to support this bill ASAP!!!!
What's next?? If you see a "FOR SALE" or "FORECLOSURE" sign on the front lawn of the White House....don't be surprised!!! That couldn't be any crazier than what has been going on over the past two and a half years in Washington!! Besides...someone has to pay for all of those (35?) expensive campaign trips on Air Force One!!!
Is this extreme talk?? Apparently not where this administration is concerned!!!
The Conservative Action Alert attached to Pat's e-mail was rather long. The site itself didn't carry the exact same alert, but here is one that covers more or less the same info. We're getting info about this from all over everywhere. So, the Democrats are going to try to get the DREAM Act passed again, which I doubt they will under the Republican majority in the House.
The thing that bothers me is the hearing that will be conducted Tuesday and the administrative changes regarding deportation by ICE that Obama has already issued by Executive Memo (I guess he wasn't liking the attention his Executive Orders were getting), much like he is using the EPA to institute his policies of Cap and Trade after it failed to pass Congress.
Here's some from the original alert that the link I provided did not cover:
"According to the Heritage Foundation, they write:
"On immigration policy, the Obama Administration has not even waited for congressional action before charting its own legislative course. In May, Democrats reintroduced the DREAM ACT - which would provide a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants who came to the United States before they were 16..."
"But rather than waiting for Congress to act, officials at Obama's Department of Homeland Security have instructed Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and attorneys to exercise ‘prosecutorial discretion' for illegal immigrants who have attended school in the United States, meaning far fewer such illegal immigrants will be prosecuted and deported. The agency cited a shortage of resources, but the decision amounts to a de facto implementation of the DREAM Act."
Back-door amnesty for illegal aliens is at the top of the current Obama agenda! The Houston Chronicle reports that a series of internal memos written by Gary Goldman, Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) chief counsel in Houston, ordered attorneys to review both new and pending cases, and dismiss any of them which did not meet ICE's "top priorities."
The dismissals numbered in the HUNDREDS just in Houston alone!
Jessica Sandlin, Texas Press Secretary for U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX), stated: "It now appears that the Department of Homeland Security attempted to mislead the public and Congress on its policy of directing dismissals of cases against criminal aliens. After this failed attempt at stonewalling and obstruction of the public's right to know, the truth is now coming out." "
ALIPAC is so upset about the gun-running by ATF and this backdoor amnesty, William Gheen is formally calling for Obama's impeachment. Articles on the situation are hitting #1 on searches, but here's you a link to the origin.
And, it appears Obama has fired the ATF agent who exposed the gun-running.
The blast faxes are expensive and I don't choose to use any of these services. I usually just e-mail and/or call who I want. John Cornyn is already aware of this situation and Kay Bailey didn't care about this stuff even when she was actively being a senator. We're working on this. When we get it all done, I'll post and give links for you to use as a guideline. ~ Faye
NumbersUSA is supporting this legislation while IRCOT is not. There are people we trust on both sides. Pat Kennedy has contacted Jim Robb at Numbers. Jean Towell is on the board of IRCOT and has graciously agreed to become a contributing member of Concerned Citizens. We're working on it.
UPDATE 7-5-2011 :
Tom Tancredo was initially in support of Lamar Smith's E-Verify bill. He has withdrawn his support as it is currently written.
"I endorsed H.R. 2164 last week, but I regret to say that endorsement was too hasty. The bill needs to be amended to remove its too-broad federal pre-emption of state authority on immigration enforcement. On closer inspection, the case for this broad pre-emption simply is not persuasive." Here's a link to the article where he discusses why he has withdrawn his support:
