Sessions: This Week 'Critical' for Congress to Thwart Obama's Plans to Nullify Immigration Laws

Breitbart -- July 27, 2014   
Obama won't take action until "after summer."
    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said this week will be one of the most critical weeks in the history of the republic for Americans who want to preserve the rule of law that has made America so exceptional.
    President Barack Obama is reportedly intent on granting temporary amnesty and work permits to possibly eight million more illegal immigrants once Congress goes on its August recess after this week, and Sessions said Congress has a chance this week to "make it exceedingly difficult" for Obama to go forward with his plans.
    In an appearance on Breitbart News Sunday, Sessions told Breitbart News Executive Chairman and host Stephen K. Bannon that any border bill that passes the Senate or the House "should have in it language that bars any president from expending any money to carry out" amnesty proposals. Sessions noted that Congress has repeatedly rejected amnesty legislation, and that is why Obama has "no power" to enact executive amnesty that is "breathtaking in its overreach." [...]
    Sessions said he hopes that "every patriot will engage" this week so that "we will win this fight."
     "The American people will not allow this to happen," Sessions said, urging listeners to pressure Democrats and Republicans. Sessions has urged Americans to melt downCongress's phone lines to compel Congress "to vote explicitly to say the President of the United States cannot spend a dime of money... to execute any plan like this.".......

ABP Note: Obama said he won't take action on the immigration issue "after summer." Do you believe him? It is possible he will take action as soon as Congress adjourns for August?
