DTP 7 PM update—Stopping Obama’s legalization of illegal aliens by defunding this in the DHS budget is McConnell’s job 1


DTP 7 PM 1-minute update bannerFrom Heritage Action. Remember the Cromnibus funding bill passed by Congress last fall. Conservatives wanted to use this as leverage to stop President Obama’s unconstitutional legalization of illegal aliens. Establishment/progressive R’s, led by House Speaker Boehner and soon-to-be Senate Majority Leader McConnell, argued to use a different strategy — to break the funding for Homeland Security out, pass a short-term DHS funding bill to expire in Feb., and use this in Feb. 2015 deadline to force Obama to stop the legalization. Well, it’s Feb. 2015. Funding for Homeland Security is running out. Now, it’s the obligation of Boehner and McConnell, not conservatives, to make their promise true. This is their doing.

The key point to understand is that even if the funding “runs out” it really doesn’t run out for critical personnel. So if establishment/progressive R’s start to buckle it is because they support legalization of illegal aliens.

The central issue here is that no member of Congress, who has taken their oath of office without reservation, can morally vote to fund what they believe to be an unconstitutional/illegal act by the president or anyone in the Executive Branch. Congress does not have the authority under our Constitution to do this. This is why we have a Constitution—to define and limit their power.
