The President’s national telecast announcing his Executive “amnesty” providing an estimated five million illegal immigrants with the exact benefits Congress rejected earlier has America’s conservatives incensed and vowing to take action.
- Announcing a comprehensive plan to stop the President’s amnesty plan, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) called on elected officials to do what they were elected to do …
“Obama’s disregard for the Constitution threatens the liberty of every American. … We’ve got to demonstrate that the campaign words Republicans used on the trail were more than just talk, that we’re willing to honor or commitment.”
- Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) called for the “power of the purse” to be used against the President’s plan …
“The great task before the nation now is to resist this imperial decree and return control of this nation to its own citizens — as our Constitution established. That task begins with Congress refusing to allow a dime of money to be spent executing this unlawful amnesty. This a routine, constitutional and crucial application of congressional power.”
- Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) called on grassroots citizens to demand congressional action …
“Barack Obama’s immigration lawlessness is unconstitutional. Republicans were elected to end President Obama’s culture of lawlessness and that starts with the immigration executive order. And I’ll do everything in my power to lead the fight against President Obama’s unconstitutional Executive Amnesty, but politicians only tend to see the light when the grassroots turns up the heat.” (emphasis added).

Over the past three days, friends of Liberty Counsel Action have barraged the offices of Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill with many thousands of faxes calling for strong congressional counter-maneuvers against our lawless President.
This was a tremendous first wave, but we need 5,000 more faxes sent before Wednesday to keep this issue front and center. Already, efforts are underway both in the White House and the liberal media to keep Obama’s Executive Amnesty off the front page. This tactic, used so successfully during ObamaCare’s passage, must not succeed.
