President Obama has never wanted to enforce our immigration laws. His immigration director admitted, “If you’re a run of the mill immigrant here illegally, your odds of getting deported are close to zero.” You might remember last summer’s surge of illegal immigrants from Central America. 99% of them are still here, and are being resettled at taxpayer’s expense throughout our country. The unlawful executive amnesty announced last November gives five million illegals work permits and government benefits instead of deportation orders. The president announced this giveaway after he admitted on 22 separate occasions that he lacked the power to do that.
Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions tells this whole story in his new “Immigration Handbook.” He also provides solutions. Congress should defund Obama’s executive amnesty, pass enforcement bills such as E Verify, crack down on overstays, and block government welfare benefits to illegals. Many Congressmen won in last November’s election because of amnesty’s unpopularity. Now those Congressmen should show the American people that they’re listening.
