The House and the Senate might be in closed session now, many of them going home to vacation or campaign but that does not mean that Washington is closed. As Sen. Jeff Sessions, points out today many special interest lobbyists and activist groups are hard at work pushing for Obama's planned executive amnesty. While Senate Democrats claim that House Republicans are being obstructionist, Senate Democrats work behind closed doors to assure that the will of the people goes unheard. Notably, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has urged Obama to issue “the broadest possible” executive action. Because Democrats are upset, that once again, House Republicans, plus four House Democrats, voted to end Obama's June 2012 executive action Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA program. The program deferred deportation for immigrants, some 900,000, that were brought here illegally as children, these children are also known as “Dreamer.”

After years and years of Americans requesting that the White House just follow the immigration laws on the books and secure our border, the only answer, they have heard is comprehensive immigration reform and amnesty for all. The White House has declared plans to act before November's mid-term election by expanding the DACA program, issuing photo identification along with work permits to the 6 million who have come here illegally. This plan is being supported and pushed by not only Homeland Security Secretary Johnson, but by other White House officials, namely Domestic Policy Council Director Munoz, White House Counsel Eggleston and the U. S. Chamber of Commerce.

This plan would not only be constitutionally illegal, but it would take away the sovereignty of our country and make us a country with no borders. To quote Sen. Jeff Sessions, “allowing any president to nullify the law is a threat to the future of our Republic, and the power of the people.” Seeing that there is over 12 dozen ways of coming into our country illegally, there is hardly no excuse to come here illegally. Americans need to start yelling louder and use their phones to call their government officials, telling them to stop the illegal human trafficking, that not only takes away our jobs, lowers our wages, raises our taxes, but most importantly takes away our U.S. sovereignty. Americans need to ask their Senators, will they be loyal and true to American citizens or their lobbyist, where do they stand.
