ALERT: Call the U.S. Senators in morning and into afternoon by 2pm — DEFUND DHS illegal AMNESTY — Senate may vote as early as tomorrow/today Feb 3. — Tell them : To vote YES on H.R. 240, the House-passed version of the DHS spending bill, that would defund Pres. Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
Tell them — •You oppose President Obama’s executive amnesty
•You expect them to vote YES on the motion to proceed
•You want Congress to stop the President’s abuse of power, now and in the future
•You demand that Congress act NOW to rein in President Obama’s abuse of power and restore respect for our immigration laws.
It is not “defunding National Security” as the Prez is falsely politically exaggerating – it defunds the amnesty.
The Senate will cast its first vote TOMORROW on the House-passed Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill that defunds President Obama’s executive amnesties. Tomorrow’s vote at 2:30 pm is a procedural vote – called a motion to proceed to debate the bill – and it simply determines whether the Senate moves forward to debating and amending the bill.
However, pro-amnesty Democrats are planning on obstructing the legislative process by filibustering the motion. If successful, they will be able to prevent the Senate from even discussing the common sense House bill that defunds the executive amnesty. Senate Democrats are demanding that the Senate pass a “clean” Homeland Security funding bill, one that does not limit the President’s ability to exercise “prosecutorial discretion” in immigration matters. In reality, that means a bill that fully funds President Obama’s amnesty programs!
Call your Senators and tell them there is no such thing as a “clean” funding bill for the Department of Homeland Security.
U.S. Senator Thom Tillis (NC) (202) 224-6342. U.S. Senator Richard Burr (NC) (202) 224-3154 — they need to know you are against the amnesty.
It is the President who is threatening our homeland security, allowing illegal Aliens to provide cover for terrorists, open Border threatens National security, no serious background checks can be done on five million illegals, and Obama is taking the side of illegal aliens by giving them legal work permits over citizens who need jobs
Give a call to these Democrats:
Did you know that after voters overwhelming rejected President Obama’s policies in the November elections, these Senate Democrats voiced opposition to executive amnesty? Indeed they did. Here’s what they said:
- Indiana, Senator Joe Donnelly – “I am as frustrated as anyone that Congress is not doing its job, but the president shouldn’t make such significant policy changes on his own.”
- Maine, Senator Angus King – “I also frankly am concerned about the constitutional separation of powers. You know, the Constitution says that the Congress makes the law and the president executes it. It’s a very clear division. The Framers knew what they were doing and it doesn’t say if the president gets frustrated and Congress doesn’t act, he gets to do, you know, what he thinks is important for the country.”
- Virginia, Senator Mark Warner – “big issue like immigration, the best way to get a comprehensive solution is to take this through the legislative process.”
- Missouri, Senator Claire McCaskill – “Our immigration system is broken, and I support a comprehensive plan to fix it, but executive orders aren’t the way to do it.” She continued, “I have to be honest, how this is coming about makes me uncomfortable, I think it probably makes most Missourians uncomfortable.”
- Montana, Senator Jon Tester – ”I would prefer that Congress act, yes.”
- North Dakota, Senator Heidi Heitkamp – It’s Congress’ job to pass legislation and deal with issues of this magnitude.”
- West Virginia, Senator Joe Manchin – I disagree with the President’s decision to use executive action to make changes to our immigration system…” He continued, “I wish he wouldn’t do it.”
