Sessions: ‘We Cannot Allow Executive Orders to…Eradicate Plain Law’

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) took to the Senate floor Wednesday to blast the president’s reported plan to use his executive authority to provide amnesty to illegal immigrants by scaling back deportations and granting them work permits, saying Congress must not allow the president use executive actions that eradicate “plain law.”  

“This Congress needs to speak. We cannot allow executive orders to be issued by a president that eradicates plain law. To do so is wrong. The American people are watching this. They are not going to be happy that this Congress didn’t take action, and expressions of concerns among senators really are not enough,” said Sessions.

Sessions read portions of a Wall Street Journal article published Tuesday, which said President Barack Obama was set to announce plans to use executive action “soon after Labor Day,” attributing it to an administration official.

“It’s one of the most pathetic excuses for abusive of power by a court or a president that you could imagine. And I think this Congress, this Senate has a responsibility to speak to that question and to avoid an issue,” Sessions said.

Sessions said Obama has been meeting with immigration activists, “promising them things he has no power to promise.”

“He has promised them things that constitutionally he’s not able to do, and this Congress needs to say no to that, and we can do that by simply barring the expenditure of money in the future to execute such a scheme,” Sessions added.

Sessions said the article “should send shivers through every member of this body.” He predicted that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Ariz.) would not allow the Senate to act on the president’s plan.

“We need to bring this up, and Senator Reid is – I predict – is not going to allow it to happen,” he said.

According to the article, the White House shifted its thinking on the issue “after House Republicans said they wouldn’t take up immigration legislation.”

“So the president is saying that I have legislation, and the House won’t pass it. Therefore, I’m going to do it myself,” said Sessions.

  1. This has been going on for years..and now they’re concerned! BS! Legitimate government and the Constitution have been dead for years. Realize we now live in a plutocracy, rapidly becoming a Stalinist police state.

  2. This creature can write any ILLEGAL e.o. he wants …..
    It doesn’t mean a hill of beans.
    I will in no way, EVER, abide by anything this creature,
    or his minions, bring forth.
    They’re foreign agents …not to mention, unworthy of the
    office which they’ve usurped.
    Come on “boy” bring it on !
    Let’s get this over with

  3. Congress and the supreme court routinely not only allow the executive and its unelected bureaucracies and agencies to eradicate plain law but vote for and legitimize its unabashed criminality. Where is Mr. Sessions’ concern over undeclared wars of imperial murder? Why does he not speak out for a full and independent audit of the Fed, a criminal organization that happens to run our economy into the ground on purpose, a private institution that Congress itself brought into being and conferred upon it powers that Congress itself never had. It’s all the same gang. They just jockey for inside position on the fast track to stuffing their portfolios with the stolen loot. Hypocrites, liars, thieves and murderers are the run of the mill in government and if it weren’t for the misery the state causes it would be best off ignored altogether.
