It Begins! Six Senators Send Barack Obama and Harry Reid a Letter that Has Democrats SCARED

1obamaipad

The Republicans won on election day in a historic landslide victory. The “red” on America’s political map has a greater reach than Verizon’s cellphone coverage. Republicans took over state legislators, governor’s offices, and the United States Senate! It is an epic rejection of the misguided policies of our Campaigner-in-Chief Barack Obama.

But the question for conservatives is now – what should they do now that they are in power? The answer for six Senators is: SECURE THE SOUTHERN BORDER, NOW!

Republicans Senators Ted Cruz of Texas, Mike Crapo of Idaho, Mike Lee of Utah, Pat Roberts of Kansas, Jeff Sessions of Alabama, and David Vitter of Louisiana all signed onto a letter that they will do everything in their power to stop Obama’s plan to grant Amnesty for illegal immigrants through executive order.

We write to express our alarm with President Obama’s announced intention to take unilateral executive action by the end of this year to lawlessly grant amnesty to immigrants who have entered the country illegally. The Supreme Court has recognized that ‘over no conceivable subject is the power of Congress more complete’ than its power over immigration.

“Therefore, President Obama will be exercising powers properly belonging to Congress if he makes good on his threat. This will create a constitutional crisis that demands action by Congress to restore the separation of powers.

“As majority leader of the Senate, you have the responsibility of not only representing the citizens of your State, but also of protecting the Constitution through vigilant exercise of the checks and balances provided under the Constitution.

“Therefore, we write to offer our full assistance in ensuring expeditious Senate debate and passage for a measure that preserves the power of Congress by blocking any action the President may take to violate the Constitution and unilaterally grant amnesty.

“However, should you decline to defend the Senate and the Constitution from executive overreach, the undersigned Senators will use all procedural means necessary to return the Senate’s focus during the lame duck session to resolving the constitutional crisis created by President Obama’s lawless amnesty.”

And this builds off of the idea being pushed by the conservative editors of National Review magazine:

The current continuing resolution, the appropriations law that funds the government, expires on December 11. Republicans should insert into a short-term continuing resolution language that would prohibit funding to a prospective executive order on immigration. To avoid shutting down the government, Democrats would have to pass the bill, putting themselves on record as opposing the president’s immigration plan; or they could reject the bill, potentially shutting down the government.

Do you agree that it is time to secure the border and stop Obama’s amnesty agenda? Please leave us a comment and let us know what you think.

    No amnesty and send the illegals back where they came from. Let them apply legally. I resent the amount of money and the loss of our constitutional rights that are being taken away from us and we have no say in the matter. Our borders need to be closed now. Stand up to Obama and his cronies.

  3. Karen says:

    Personally I think it’s over due to get something done about our borders. If Obama didn’t get the message that we the people are coming to take back our America, then he must have missed mail call or just ignored it all together! The necessary steps that will be taken to stop Obama from granting amnesty to illegal immigrants is going to be nasty, but I ask my Republican Senators & House Reps. to hold steadfast with the plan & not falter & stay the course.

    Secure the Border! Deport all Illegal Invaders and Deport 0b0z0 to Indonesia where he holds citizenship!

  5. Joe says:

    Its about time they stop this illegal in white house .We have to close our southern border ,NO amnesty for illegals & fine anyone who hires illegals. The drug cartel has been crossing the border also & killing Americans at will because Obama has been ordering border patrols to stand down & not arrest these people .Arrest Obama for this traitorous act & all the other illegal acts he has committed . He has shredded our constitution and is trying to take all our rights away & we must not allow that to happen .Lets have him taken away instead & straight to jail .

  6. Jon says:

    …but, do these select six have the resolve to carry out what they’ve outlined in this letter to Mr. Reid. It would be a 1st in a long time that they actually go for the throat in the fashion of a hyena and not let go until Reid and senate democrats surrender unto Constitutional law, before lawlessness. All that support Mr. Obama are guilty as he is should they not ascribe to their duties of office.

  7. YukonBill says:

    The borders should have been secured in 1941. That mean ALL of our borders, including the coastal areas. No other country to my knowledge is as lax as is ours. Closed borders is especially important with the world as it is today.

  8. Carlos says:

    The Border, Close it now. Deport all illegals.

  9. Dianne says:

    Absolutely agree it is “past” time to secure the border. Obama’s amnesty agenda is only for democrats and to vote for democrats. We the taxpayers can not afford to pay for the welfare costs of these people.

  10. Sharon says:

    I totally agree that the border needs to be secured. Then when the Repubs are sworn in, in Jan, if there’s no way Obama will work with them, then they need to start impeachment as soon as possible. We can’t afford to let Obama remain unchecked for another 2 years. If they do allow him to continue on in the way he has been, then America is definitely doomed. But, Repubs don’t need to be obnoxious about their big win. Obama was when he won in ’12, but I hope most of our Reps & Senators are bigger than that. God help America, & bless he.

  11. Dwight says:

    I love the approach
    ….that will be a good start. Now if we can send every bill to the president that at least 60 percent of america wants ( along with the Polling info). It will be fun to watch him veto most. Then America and the dems will know who the party of no really is.

  12. Ron says:

    I fully support Congress and those making this proposal in the effort to prevent an executive order by the President as it regards immigration. The article rightly portrays the choices that the minority Democrats will have in dealing with the continuing resolution proposal. There is one missing piece. That is a mainstream media who will properly report it. Sequestration is a perfect example of the complicity of the press in favoring President Obama. Sequestration was proposed by the President yet when the next budget impasse forced it to be enacted, the result was presented as a “Republican” shutdown as if they had single handedly initiated it as punishment on the public.
    Unless and until the mainstream press does its job properly, they will provide the sound bites that will be recycled in the next round of elections. Until that changes, the most brilliant strategies, no matter how appropriate, will be reported as “heavy-handed Republicans” doing their job poorly.
    That must change for strategies such as this to have a fair hearing in the court of public opinion.

    1. Sharon says:

      That’s where the internet comes in. If we all share news articles that we receive, with everybody that we are friends with on Facebook & Twitter, the truth will get out. That’s what helped us this election. People were getting the TRUTH through the internet.

  13. Diane says:

    yes please stop him

  14. Tim says:

    I believe we are long overdue to close the border and all steps MUST BE TAKEN to stop Obama from granting amnesty to illegal immigrants.

    1. Irene says:

      Yes our borders should be closed and what Obama has done by letting all these iegal in this yer shoul be sent back to where ever they came from PERIOD.

  15. Nuseka says:

    I like this….

  16. Carol says:

    It is past time for Congress to do something about Obama. He has been over stepping his position for years. He has all but destroyed our great nation and has no respect for the position many voted him to do. He is POTUS not King or Dictator and it is time to stop him. I also think it is past time that he show his true birth certificate and college transcripts. If it had been a Republican he would have had to produce the proper papers, not some phony ones. I am an angry Independent and want something done about this impostor!
