Three times this month, Senate Democrats filibustered the motion to proceed to the House-passed Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill (H.R. 240). It has been an impressive display of unity by the Democrats considering at least seven expressed concern over President Obama’s wideranging executive amnesty. With just 17 days before DHS funding expires, House and Senate Republicans must deliver a single, unified message:

President Obama and Senate Democrats are willing to deny border patrol agents their paychecks to ensure illegal immigrants get Social Security numbers.

Inexplicably, the ability to deliver such a message has been diluted because Republicans allowed Senate Democrats to hijack the legislative process and President Obama to exercise a de facto veto over congressional action.

Dangerous Precedent

Senate Democrats had their obstructionism validated on Tuesday when Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters the Senate was “stuck” and “the next step is obviously up to the House.” By refusing to participate in the process at crucial junctures, Senate Democrats are trying to leverage their minority status to exert control over the debate and dictate policy outcomes in the Republican-controlled Congress. Allowing these obstructionist tactics to succeed will reduce the role Senate Republicans play in future debates as it allows the minority in one chamber to dictate terms to both.

Read the entire memo.

  1. I am becoming more certain as time goes on that I wasted my votes for the GOP. They are no more trustworthy than the Democrats. They, like the Democrats, made promises to us that they never intended to keep. All I heard during the campaign season from everyone of the GOP candidates was I WILL WORK TO REPEAL OBAMACARE and I WILL STOP OBAMA’S’ ILLEGAL AMNESTY. Now…..nothing.

    • What do you think they are doing? The senate Democrats won’t even let them bring it to the floor for a vote, thus trying to blame the Republicans, worked on you!

    • There is no Republican or Democrat. There is only patriotism and tyranny! And I think it’s high time for the revolution, no matter the cost!

  2. The border is already messed up because Obama and Johnson will not let DHS do their job correctly which is to catch and return illegals back to the own country!

  3. Someone else wrote this: But it is so true: I want to share it with everyone. Especially Congress and President Obama:

    I just read this and thought I would pass it along. Someone else wrote it but it sounds good to me. What if this was us trying to get into Mexico? Reverse:

    I’m planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me. We’re planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. into Mexico, and we’ll need your help to make a few arrangements. We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I’m sure they handle those things the same way you do here So, would you mind telling your buddy, the President of Mexico , that I’m on my way over? Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

    1. Free medical care for my entire family.

    2. English-speaking Government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

    3. Please print all Mexican Government forms in English.

    4. I want my grand kids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

    5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

    6. I want my grand kids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.

    7. Please plan to feed my grand kids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

    8. I will need a local Mexican driver’s license so I can get easy access to government services.

    9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico, but I don’t plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won’t make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

    10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English-speaking officer.

    11. I plan to fly the U.S. flag from my house top, put US. flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

    12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

    13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

    14. I want to receive free food stamps.

    15. Naturally, I’ll expect free rent subsidies.

    16. I’ll need income tax credits so that although I don’t pay Mexican taxes, I’ll receive money from the government.

    17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Government pays $4,500.00 to help me buy a new car.

    18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I’ll get a monthly income in retirement.
