Sessions Calls On All Colleagues To Block President’s Planned Amnesty & Work Permits
“American people will not be mocked. They have begged and pleaded for our nation's immigration law to be enforced for 30 or 40 years… The politicians have refused, refused, refused, refused. The American public defeated amnesty after amnesty after amnesty and they will not sit back and allow the president to implement through unlawful fiat…
In effect, the President is preparing to assume for himself the absolute power to set immigration law in America. The absolute power to determine who may enter and who may work—not matter what the law says—by the millions… The American people will fight this. They will resist… So I am calling on all Members of Congress today to stand up to the President’s lawless actions and sponsor legislation to block [these actions]. I am calling on all Members of Congress today to oppose any border supplemental that does not include such language. I am calling on every person in this body, and in the House, to stand and be counted at this perilous hour. I am calling on the American people to phone their representative and ask them: where do you stand?
All of us were elected by citizens to serve them and their constitution. Will we answer that call? Where will history record you stood at this hour?”
