Calls Needed Now: “CRomnibus” funds Obama’s Executive Amnesty
The language of the long anticipated “CRomnibus” spending bill finally came available late last night. This $1.1 trillion, 1,603-page bill would fund most of the federal government through September 30, 2015 while extending funding for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) until February 27, 2015.
Bottom line: It authorizes the federal government to continue President Obama’s lawless activities such as hiring 1,000 DHS employees to fast track work permits for up to 5 million illegal aliens.
This cannot stand. Even Politico is saying “the legislation doesn’t specifically prevent the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services from carrying out President Barack Obama’s unilateral change to immigration law.”
While some in the DC establishment seem to think that the short-term funding for DHS will provide another opportunity to block President Obama’s actions in 2015, no such commitment has been made by House Leadership. This approach attempts to revisit this issue 100 days from now. By then, this amnesty program will be up and running and the current pressure on the President and his allies will have slackened off.
History has demonstrated that if members lack the will to fight now, with all momentum and public opinion on their side, they will be no more likely to take a stand next year. Refusing to even try to stop Obama’s amnesty now is not acceptable.
Call your Representatives NOW and tell them it is unacceptable that the “CRomnibus” does not contain language to defund the president’s Executive Amnesty. House Leadership is whipping the vote all day today and we it is critical they hear from their conservative constituents – YOU!
NOT TO MENTION THAT IT IS FILLED WITH PORK BARREL SPENDING!!!
