Below is an important message from Sen. Ted Cruz to GOP House Leaders, who refuse to use the Power of the Purse to stop Obama’s amnesty:
“This November’s election was a referendum on executive amnesty, and the American people overwhelmingly oppose President Obama’s illegal amnesty. Republicans in Congress should use every tool at our disposal—our constitutional checks and balances—to stop President Obama’s amnesty. The Senate should use its constitutional authority to halt confirmations for non-national security positions, until the President stops this illegal amnesty. And both Houses should use the power of the purse, which the Framers understood to be the most potent tool Congress has to rein in an out-of-control Executive.
“We should pass a short-term continuing resolution that includes language defunding the implementation of the President’s executive action on amnesty.
“Nearly a dozen Senate Democrats have publicly expressed concerns about President Obama’s executive amnesty. Support for the President’s lawlessness decreases by the day, and House Republicans should provide Senate Democrats the opportunity to show voters whether or not they have heard the message the voters sent in the 2014 elections.”
Please call your member of Congress today at (202) 225-3121.
Tell them to Defund Obama’s Amnesty NOW.
Sen. Ted Cruz is right: “What the president is doing is dangerous. If the president doesn’t have to follow the law, what is the point of electing Congress?”
