Senators Warn Obama: Don’t Use Executive Action to Try and Force Amnesty Down Our Throats
Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) has appeared on “The Kelly File” on Fox News to warn President Obama against taking executive action on immigration. Reports are circulating that Obama intends to follow up on plans he announced some months ago to take unilateral action, rather than waiting for Congress to weigh in on the controversial issue. The President’s purported 10-point plan will expand a deferral program and allow up to 4.5 million illegal immigrants living here with children born in America, to stay in the country.
Sessions and six other Republicans have written a letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, requesting that he block any executive action, saying such action would be tantamount to “amnesty.”
