Laws Passed By
By Frosty Wooldridge
|As to the S744 amnesty bill now before the House of Representatives,
two Texas Congressmen John Carter and Samuel Johnson said, "We want to be
clear. The problem is politics. Instead of doing what's right for America,
President Obama time and again has unilaterally disregarded the U.S. Constitution,
the letter of the law and bypassed the Congress—the body most representative
of the people—in order to advance his political agenda."
Recently, many House members' staffs read S744 bill in depth; subsequently, they realized it presents all illegal aliens an amnesty with no security of our country's borders and no internal enforcement of any transport, housing or employment laws. In other words, illegal aliens may invade our borders with impunity from any law enforcement.
"The House “Gang of Eight” had already become the “Gang of Seven” in June this year when another Republican, Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho), dropped out," said Roy Beck, director of NumbersUSA.org. "That was a major blow to Speaker Boehner's hopes that Labrador could be the Hispanic equivalent in the House to Sen. Rubio (R-Fla.) whose presence on the Senate Gang of 8 was seen as the essential element to the Senate passing the giant amnesty in June.
"Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida is the only Republican left in what had been a Gang of four Republicans and four Democrats. Because of his long-time support for amnesties, his presence in the Gang has had little influence on other Republicans.
"Persuading the two Texas conservatives (Carter and Johnson) to be in the Gang had been considered a coup for the pro-amnesty forces, as they seemed to provide political cover for other Republicans who made pro-legalization statements.
"Many voters in their two Texas congressional districts were shocked early this year when it was revealed publicly that John Carter and Sam Johnson were in the House Gang.
"Carter and Johnson always argued that they accepted the request for them to be in the Gang because they felt some kind of comprehensive immigration reform was going to eventually pass and they wanted to make sure that they were in the middle of negotiations and could ensure strong enforcement.
"But in resigning today, they indicated that Pres. Obama's actions in refusing to enforce current immigration laws had led them to distrust the compromise process."
In a joint statement, Congressmen Carter and Johnson said:
"We want to be clear. The problem is politics. Instead of doing what's right for America, President Obama time and again has unilaterally disregarded the U.S. Constitution, the letter of the law and bypassed the Congress -- the body most representative of the people - in order to advance his political agenda.
"We will not tolerate it. Laws passed by Congress are not merely suggestions, regardless of the current atmosphere in Washington. Laws are to be respected and followed by all -- particularly by the Commander-in-Chief."
"The Democratic members of the House Gang are John Yarmuth of Kentucky, Xavier Becerra and Zoe Lofgren of California and Luis Gutierrez of Illinois," said Beck. "Reps. Carter and Johnson did not criticize their fellow Democratic Gang members but focused on Pres. Obama:
"If past actions are the best indicators of future behavior, we know that any measure depending on the president's enforcement will not be faithfully executed."
Johnson and Carter said they are committed to:
"Immigration reform that starts with a genuinely secure border, full implementation of E-verify, effective enforcement of current and future laws, and a commitment that any proposal contributes to a healthy economy. There is a way to fix this problem that will instill the authentic accountability that has been missing in immigration for the past 25 years. The American people deserve no less."
"Now is the time to press House Republicans to demand that Speaker Boehner abandon his years-long effort to pass an amnesty and to guarantee that he will only work for legislation that will improve enforcement that protects American workers and taxpayers," said Beck.
Again, if this bill passed the House, it would allow the lawful entry of over 100 million immigrants, their children and families via chain migration by 2050—a scant 37 years from now. Are your children ready for that?
