Senator Jeff Sessions is about the only Republican in Washington with what we’d call a perfect record when it comes to opposing the dismantling of our immigration laws. He has been steadfast with respect to protecting our border. He has bee steadfast with respect to refusing to grant illegal aliens amnesty.
Here’s the list he’s compiled of the Obama administration’s work on dismantling our laws. We have to note that a large number of Republicans in both the House and Senate have stood by and not just watched, but applauded his actions. Just like Barack Obama, Republicans like John McCain, Jeff Flake, Lindsay Graham, and Rep. Bill Flores, are enemies of the state because of their belief that our nation should have open borders.
The timeline begins in January 2009 with the administration ending worksite enforcement actions and, 50 pages later, ends on February 13, 2015 with the House Judiciary Committee’s revelation that the administration included a “sneaky” avenue for illegal immigrants granted deferred status to be placed on a pathway to citizenship.

That list just takes us through the end of 2011. We’re not even half way through it. Please refer to the original post for the full list and for the details of each one of these outrages. It’s worth noting that as the list grows, each item seems to get worse. Here’s the latest item on the list.
February 13, 2015: House Judiciary Chairman Reveals Administration Granting DACA Recipients a Pathway to Citizenship
House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte sends a letter to Secretary Johnson regarding the Administration’s announcement on a call with Congressional offices that it will permit illegal immigrants to simultaneously apply for both DACA and advance parole. Advance parole allows illegal immigrants to re-enter the United States after leaving the country, at which point they may be eligible to adjust their immigration status and be placed on a pathway to citizenship.
The Obama administration, with full compliance of Republicans as noted above, are clearing the way for at least six million new Democrat voters by 2016.
