FAIR Opposes Today’s Vote on Funding DHS Without Defunding Executive Amnesty

FAIR -- fighting the FAIR fight for true immigration reformThe Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is advising all Members of Congress and staff that it opposes the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) appropriations bill that fails to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty and is including today’s vote in FAIR’s Voting Report. There is no such thing as a “clean” DHS funding bill, Congress either funds the amnesty or defunds it. Congress has the power of the purse to rein in the President’s unconstitutional action. By failing to defund the executive amnesty in the DHS appropriations bill, Congress is abdicating its power and disregarding the will of the American people.

    As Congress has only the “power of the purse-string” and has abdicated that, what is left? A GOP potential Presidential candidate, Ted Cruz has stated it had already been resolved and the rest is just the “Wizard of Oz” fantasy. Members of Congress soak up billions of taxpayer money for office holders, staff and operation and what good are they? Disband them all so we can go to the pre-determined facist police state they have in mind with Obola as the new “Emporer”.

    Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

        The American electorate,those who actually get out and vote have the power to eliminate all political parties and the criminality associated therewith. Representatives would thus be loyal only to the United States Constitution (Federalism) and to no political party, Communist. Socialist, Leftist, Socialism, fascism, Nazism and others would all be outlawed and individuals running for office would be forced to take an oath to uphold and defend ONLY the United States Constitution. Thus Representatives and Senators would be forced to debate every issue in committee and present their findings and recommendations to the larger body; House or Senate;which could accept, reject, send back to committee or make such changes by amendment as would allow it to pass by a simple majority. It would then be sent as a House Resolution to the Senate for consideration. If it passes in the Senate, it is sent to the President as a joint resolution for signature and passage or veto and returned to the legislature for reconsideration. No party Politics,”Factionalism” would be an obstruction to urgently needed legislation such as the XL Pipeline Construction bill. There could and would not be any extra legislative hanky-panky to obstruct legislation and no fat would be permitted. Terms would be limited to such terms as the Article V Convention deemed fitting and proper. The elimination of ‘factionalism’ or Party Politics would constitute a giant leap forward, put a lot of the ‘Good old Boys’ out of business or in prison and forge a far better Republic.
