As you know, right after last year’s elections, President Obama decided to do an end-run around Congress and implement his own executive amnesty. Throughout the election cycle Republicans vowed to do everything they could to stop the President’s overreach. Now, the Republicans in the Senate under Majority Leader McConnell’s guidance are playing games. Today we have learned that Sen. McConnell’s plan is to bring a bill to the Senate floor that would fully fund the Department of Homeland Security without defunding executive amnesty!
Congress has the “power of the purse” and is responsible for serving as a check on the President’s actions. We have a very narrow window of time to put a stop to President Obama’s executive amnesty, and Congress needs to act now!
Please call Sen. McConnell and Speaker Boehner to let them know that you want Congress to defund executive amnesty. No more games! Remind them of their oath to support and defend the Constitution and urge them to vote on one bill that funds the Department of Homeland Security, while stripping funds from President Obama’s unilateral amnesty.
