Many Republicans were elected last November with promises that they would end immigration chaos and truly secure the sieve-like border. But now the GOP appears hell-bent to ignore the reasonable desire of the American people to restore order to the immigration process, rather than watch the government encourage a free-for-all border in a very dangerous [...]
The new GOP-majority Congress has gotten off to an energetic start, and that includes legislation to scuttle the Obama’s executive amnesty. Senator Sessions endorses the Repeal Executive Amnesty Act of 2015, H.R.191, authored by Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL).

Farmers say they are worried that the government’s awarding thousands of illegal aliens with amnesty work permits will cause them to leave for the greener pastures of legal American jobs.

ROY BECK: We want members of Congress to think that it [...]
It’s becoming clear that the Obama bunch has been planning the imperial distribution of work permits to illegal aliens for some time, despite the squeals that Republicans were being obstructionist toward the foreigners languishing in the shadows. In October, the administration began organizing the production of the physical work permits, and now the hiring has [...]
Senator Sessions continues to recommend Congress use its power of the purse to knock back Obama’s executive amnesty to give work permits to millions of illegal aliens.
Powerful forces from Silicon Valley to big agriculture have spent millions of dollars to increase the number of cheap foreign workers to replace citizens. Senator Sessions has fought these [...]
The ink is hardly dry on Emperor Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty for an estimated five million illegal aliens, yet the chorus of whiners is already in full screech mode, howling that the unprecedented mass pardon/reward is UNFAIR! because it doesn’t cover every single unlawful foreigner in the country.
