“Republicans” Capitulate On Barack Obama’s Amnesty Plan

HOUSE GIVES UP FIGHT AGAINST EXECUTIVE OVERREACH … 

|| By FITSNEWS || “Republicans” in the U.S. House of Representatives have capitulated to the administration of Barack Obama … again.

By a 257-167 vote – the “GOP-controlled” chamber send the administration a bill funding U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through the end of September.  And yes … the measure contained money for Obama’s dictatorial executive amnesty program.

Just like that, Obama’s most blatant unconstitutional overreach has received the imprimatur of the “Republican” controlled Congress.

Conservative members of the House were livid.

“Today, Congress capitulated on its duty to protect and defend the Constitution against executive overreach,” U.S. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.) said. “If we are truly going to make the American people’s priorities our priorities, then we must be willing to have more than a halfhearted fight against the President’s constitutional violations. It’s hard to explain to constituents that something a majority of House Republicans oppose can pass out of the Republican controlled House of Representatives.”

We agree … although FITS readers will recall we predicted this outcome back in January when the House defunded Obama’s initiative (just as we predicted the broader GOP cave).

Of course it didn’t exactly take a crystal ball … the GOP has caved again, again and again on critical issues like this.  Which is why we supported getting rid of its “leader” in the House.

This website has consistently opposed Obama’s amnesty – especially the constitutional crisis he created by appropriating unto himself the authority to create (and fund) new government programs and benefits.

“You can’t ‘solve’ a problem by perpetuating it nor can you solve a problem by creating a much bigger one – which is precisely what (Obama) has done on the immigration issue,” we wrote last fall.

Congress’ decision to fund the measure also undercuts the legal push against Obama’s amnesty.  Seriously  … how can judges block the measure now that it has been affirmatively funded by Congress?
