Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions (R) is warning that President Obama’s proposed Executive amnesty for up to six million illegal aliens will be a security nightmare for the United States.
In an August 25, article by the ‘National Review’s Joel Gehrke, Sen. Sessions said, “Immigration agents already tell us that the President’s DACA order has redirected resources away from national security and created massive enforcement loopholes that can be exploited by terrorists.”
Sen. Sessions said, “If President Obama goes through with his plan to provide formal work authorization to millions who violate the terms of their visas, it would be a security nightmare for the United States….For instance, we know ICE officers can no longer police visa overstays even though they are a proven security risk — and even though the 9/11 hijackers exploited our visa system in order to launch their attacks.”
Sen. Sessions has opposed giving the millions of illegal aliens already here amnesty for their coming and a work visa to compete with every legal immigrant and U.S. citizen here because it would only encourage future immigration and because the economy is not growing fast enough to produce the required jobs.
Sen. Sessions wrote in response to revelations that corporate executives were meeting with the White House to craft new immigration policies by executive order to open more pathways for businesses to import more workers:
“This Administration is actively working against the interests of the American worker. And Senate Democrats, instead of defending Congress and their constituents, are handing their vote over to Leader Reid and President Obama. Not one single Senate Democrat has publicly stood up to their Democrat leaders and demanded a vote on the House bill to block this executive amnesty. As a result, they are as complicit as if they sat in the room with these executives themselves.”
Sen. Sessions concluded:
“We have communities throughout America that are barely scraping by. Tens of millions of Americans are on welfare, unemployment, and public assistance. Yet the White House and their Senate Majority seem more concerned about the economic demands of large corporations, or the citizens of other countries, than about getting our own citizens back to work into stable jobs that can support a family and uplift a community.”
The savage Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has been threatening to launch attacks in the United States. The group which controls a large swath of territory in Syria and Iraq has announced plans to create a new global caliphate that will include the United States, they boast.
Despite the growing fear of terrorism, many Democrats still favor the Executive amnesty, which goes around Congress. U.S. Representative Luis Gutiérrez (D) from Illinois said on the cable news network MSNBC, “It’s music to my ears when 5 million people are allowed the opportunity to come out from under the shadows and into the light of day and get legalized, it’s going to take a lot of work and capacity of our community.”
Many sources are warning that this Executive amnesty could come within days.
