We spoke and Washington listened, no amnesty for illegal immigrants, and other things you need to know

Congratulations! Thanks to your efforts on our Make Congress Work Again campaign, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell took a step in the right direction by cancelling part of the August recess this week. Now we hope he’ll use this time to go through the process of passing appropriations bills before the end of the fiscal year and to speed up the confirmations of President Trump’s long list of nominees. While this was a great first step, there’s still a lot of work that needs to be done. If McConnell is serious about getting things done, he should also keep the Senate in Washington and have them working at least full five-day workweeks, and even nights and weekends as most workers in America do when a job needs to be done with a strict deadline!

“We cannot continue to allow Congress to wait until our government is nearing another shutdown to present a 2,000 page bill and then give lawmakers a ‘choice’ of shutting down the government or passing a bill no one has read,” Tea Part Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said in a statement following the decision. “That pattern has only led to irresponsible lawmaking—passing $2 trillion bills that no one has time to fully comprehend. With Democrats abusing the rules of the Senate to force virtually every single one of President Trump’s nominees into 30 hours of debate before getting a vote, we need our senators present in the Capitol.”

America cannot continue to allow Congress to wait until our government is nearing another shutdown and continue to stall President Trump’s nominees. It’s time for them to do what they were elected to do and work until the important appropriation bills are passed and all of Trump’s nominees are approved.


President Trump has been in office for over 500 days and, while you won’t hear about it through most media outlets, his list of accomplishments are worth noting. That’s why Rep. Jim Jordan tweeted a thread stating the many positive results since Trump took his post and asking his colleagues to keep their campaign promises.

Endorsements

There is still a lot of work to be done and a lot of it falls on Congress. If you agree with Rep. Jordan that Trump is doing a good job and that members of Congress need to keep their campaign promises, please retweet his thread and get the word out there!


This week, the House of Representatives met over an issue that has vexed Congress for too long: illegal immigration. The law is the law and we can either choose to abide by it or not. But when even our own government chooses not to follow the law, that sets a bad precedent for all Americans living in the U.S. Unfortunately, some Republicans are pushing again for amnesty – which undermines our system of laws. Jenny Beth Martin wrote in her column this week that granting amnesty to illegal immigrants while promising some future enforcement to secure the border is a horrible way of approaching our immigration problem.

“While amnesty is a bad idea that never seems to go out of style with some politicians in the Washington swamp, these politicians should step back and consider the legacy they wish to leave from their time in Congress,” Martin wrote in her column. “Prove to us — your constituents, your voters, the American people — that you will do what you say. Leave a legacy that puts America first.”

Congress needs to respect the laws in the books and do what’s right for the American people.
