Congress Phone Lines Jammed In Response To Sessions

From Breitbart:

Fearing Obama Unilateral Amnesty Threats, Tea Party Jams Congress’s Phone Lines

By Matthew Boyle | July 28, 2014

The phone lines are jammed. The American people have risen up in response to a rallying cry from Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and Ted Cruz (R-TX), overloading the phone lines on Capitol Hill to pressure their members of Congress to fight against President Obama’s planned executive amnesty for millions of illegal aliens…

“This shows the American people are going to resist,” a Sessions aide told Breitbart News. “The crescendo will grow. They are only beginning to be heard. They will get louder in the coming days.”

Let’s hope so. But this is the reason Obama is pulling this stunt on Friday is because Congress will already be on its five week vacation. And it’s also a time when most Americans are thinking of other things besides politics. So he knew there were be no way for the public to show its wrath. (He has already given up on the Democrats winning the midterms.)

The calls are coming in response to Sen. Sessions, who last week asked the American people to rise up and pressure their elected leaders to stop the president from moving forward with any new executive amnesty. Obama has already granted executive amnesty to upwards of 800,000 illegal aliens through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program which was initiated in 2012, and this year Obama is threatening to expand DACA to five to six million illegal aliens.

Obama will also probably announce that he will no longer deport illegal aliens who are in the US on overstayed visas, which is the case for as many as half the illegal aliens in the US. (In fact, Obama’s father was on the verge of being thrown out of the US for being on an overstayed visa. And both his Aunt Zeituni and Uncle Omar were in the country illegally on overstayed visas.)

“The American people have begged and pleaded for years for our laws to be enforced,” Sessions said in his statement calling for the American people to rise up. “We have people in our own country living in violence, fear and poverty every single day."

Maybe they should apply for refugee status.

"They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their jobs, wages and communities first. Every citizen should pick up the phone and ask of their congressional representative: where do you stand?” …

Sorry, our representatives will be too busy packing for their five week vacations to take their calls. They have their priorities.

Sessions specifically has called on lawmakers to back legislative efforts by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN)... Cruz and Blackburn have introduced legislation in the Senate and House respectively that would block President Obama’s administration from expanding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that administratively granted amnesty to upwards of 800,000 illegal aliens who say they arrived in America as minors. Their bill would bar funding of the documents the administration needs to produce to carry out such an order…

The irony of not funding their documentation. Of course, Obama would just find the money in his stash. Future Democrat voters need their documentation.

After Sessions’s call for citizen action, Cruz joined leaders from the grassroots group Tea Party Patriots to echo the call during an organizing conference call Sunday evening. Cruz called on Tea Partiers nationwide to back the Sessions plan to ask citizens to call their lawmakers.

Tea Party Patriots has, on its Facebook page Monday, published a 1-800 number that directs callers to the Capitol Hill switchboard. “Call Congress NOW,” Tea Party Patriots posted, “and tell your Representative not to give Obama a dime to solve his border failures until Congress stops funding Obama’s executive amnesty!” Tea Party Patriots posted on its Facebook page.

NumbersUSA, a grassroots group against amnesty, similarly directed two million of its three million members to call Congress Monday morning. The group, like Tea Party Patriots, made a 1-800 number for its members to call…

Now you know why the IRS tried to stop such groups from getting tax exemptions. How dare these groups get involved in politics that are none of their business. Mr. Obama knows what is best for our country. As he has shown us every day he has been in office.
