Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Groundswell) took to the Senate floor today to rant about immigrants at the border and Ted Cruz’ xenophobic legislation to “fix it”.
Groundswell’s Breitbart’s Matthew Boyle is ON it, with video and quotes of the good Senator’s rant.
Yes, Sessions called on Congress to stomp on the president’s executive order regarding DREAMers (DACA) by defunding the process for issuing work permits. Moreover, Sessions is mighty tired of the disrespect Congress gets for kicking immigrants in the teeth.
Does anybody not respect this institution? Do we not respect the House of Representatives, the United States Senate? Have we gotten so partisan that we don’t care what the president does to diminish Congress? Don’t we have an institutional responsibility, a Constitutional responsibility to defend the legitimate powers of Congress? Sure, we can disagree sometimes, but this one is not a matter of disagreement, it seems to me. This is an overreach of dramatic proportions.
Oh, the drama! The unspeakable disrespect of a President doing something to mitigate a problem Congress refuses to deal with!
If the House had managed to discard even one of their 50 votes defunding Obamacare to vote on immigration reform, this wouldn’t even be a topic for discussion.
But who dares to defy the puppetmasters? Not Jeff Sessions, who marches in lockstep with Ted Cruz and his merry gang of billionaires.
