GOP faces veto threat on immigration limits

While waiting for Republican leaders to say how they’ll work through spending bills before Christmas, the White House made clear on Monday that any GOP effort to use those funding measures to limit the President’s executive actions on immigration would be met with a veto.

“There are a variety of proposals that we’ve seen floated on Capitol Hill,” said White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, making clear to reporters that any limits on immigration actions would not pass muster with the President.

“It is the view of this administration that Congress should fulfill its responsibility and pass a year long budget,” Earnest said.

For now, Republicans still aren’t sure what’s next, as they face calls from some in the party for a showdown next week, when a stop gap budget runs out.

GOP leaders have been making clear their displeasure with the President’s moves, but not really indicating how they will challenge him.

Democrats meanwhile continue to put pressure on Republicans to both avoid a government shutdown and to act on a Senate-passed immigration measure.

Such a vote though is not expected, as Republicans may instead move smaller pieces of immigration legislation next year, in the 114th Congress.

NOT ONE PERSON SHOULD MISS WATCHING THIS DOCUMENTARY VIDEO, TO UNDERSTAND THE TERRIBLE REALITY OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION? THEN I URGE YOU TO CONTACT BOTH SENATE AND HOUSE MEMBERS, TO HALT THE ILLEGAL ALIEN INVASION BY FIRSTBUILDING THE REAL DOUBLE FENCING ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER.

Although the top ranking issues is the illegal immigration sham, to the TEA PARTY it’s that there is no accountability amongst senior Democratic Party members for the scandalous treasonous actions. I want to see—what millions of Americans should expect are these people going to prison. There is corruption amongst the highest of the officials, within the IRS or any agency; none should escape from going behind bars?

American taxpayers will be in a world of financial hurt, with this illegal immigration amnesty. A larger majority cannot speak nor understand the English language and have a maximum of an 19th grade education. They can only get the menial jobs, which should be going to American poor. We are told that they cannot apply for welfare programs as that is a lie. The dept of health and human service have stated that they are not ICE and can collect from welfare programs. Unilateral amnesty—amnesty across the board, freedom, jobs, insurance, education, health care and a future citizenship for all in the swipe of the Presidents pen.

The Heritage Foundation's expert on welfare and entitlement spending, Robert Rector, said on Monday that illegal aliens who receive amnesty and work permits through Pres. Obama's executive actions will draw $2 trillion over their lifetimes in taxpayer-funded government services. He based the figure on estimates that 4 million illegal aliens will benefit from the actions and will live an average of 50 years. Given their expected earnings, from someone that has a 10th grade education, they will draw about three dollars worth of benefits out of those programs over their lifetimes for every dollar they put into them. But the overall cost in outlays will be around a trillion dollars for those programs alone," Rector said.

…AND STILL NO SECURE BORDER FENCE PROMISED IN 2006? OVER A MILLION PEOPLE LEGALLY JUMP THROUGH THE HOOPS ANNUALLY TO BECOME AN AMERICAN AND NOT COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT, TO STEAL PUBLIC WELFARE?

Surprising that the Democrats think this blazing away party, (Tea Party) is dying when it strengthens. Their principles of a strong defense, our unwavering national sovereignty and self-determination to remove this giant government from our lives and abolish the huge amounts of rules and regulations being fed to us everyday, that is crippling industry. YOU should watch this film documentary ‘The Border States of America’ https://www.teapartypatriots.org/theborderstates/ and see the outrageous reality, which uncovers the insane standpoint of this President’s elective failure to uphold the demanding will of the American People and the rule of law. On cable news the unbiased straight reporting from ‘One America News’ http://www.oann.com is currently showing this mind numbing video.
