FAIR Opposes the Confirmation of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General

April 16, 2014

The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) is advising all Senators and staff that it opposes the confirmation of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General and will include the confirmation vote in FAIR’s Voting Report. The highest duty of the nation’s Attorney General, the top law enforcement position, is to uphold the law as written, not to politicize and undermine it at the whim of the President. Disappointingly, when it comes to immigration, Loretta Lynch openly admitted that she will follow orders from President Obama rather than the Constitution and the rule of law. The responses Ms. Lynch gave at her confirmation hearing are alarming and  disqualify her from becoming the next Attorney General.

First, Ms. Lynch took the radical position that illegal aliens have the “right” to work “regardless of how they came here,” a position that is contrary to current law. Additionally, she said President Obama’s executive amnesty is “legal and constitutional,” after dodging the straight forward question at least 15 times. Finally, Ms. Lynch refused to identify any limitation of prosecutorial discretion, suggesting that she will be a willing participant in President Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty scheme.  A vote for Loretta Lynch, after she openly embraced unconstitutional amnesty, makes any Senator voting in the affirmative complicit in the President’s lawlessness.

Therefore, FAIR urges a NO vote on Loretta Lynch’s nomination and will include it in FAIR’s Voting Report.

    A lawless President who is in violation of the Constitution and his own sworm oath of office wants to appoint a chief law enforcement officer who agrees with him. What a joke.

    After her confirmation hearings, I can’t understand why any Republican would vote to confirm her. Yet, the usual group of RINOS, Lindsey Graham, Orin Hatch, Jeff Flake and Susan Collins are ready to confirm her. They all claim that the president should have who he wants, unless there is compelling reasons not to confirm him/her. So they don’t believe that her answer that all illegal aliens have a right to work in the US, contrary to what the law says, is not a compelling reason? Just unbelievable!!!

    Loretta ***** is just another move by Obama to continue his destruction of the USA by replacing racist, inept Holder with someone who will do the same things he did, i.e. vowing to continue legal (illegal???) actions to prosecute a man found innocent by jury, George Zimmerman. True citizens of the USA, not those given everything for not doing anything in return, will rejoice when Obama’s reign of terror ends. May GOD bless America, because Barrack Insane Obama will not!
