Southern Republican of Alabama via Senator Jeff Sessions is notorious for his bitter obstructionist history. Sessions has history linked to America's racist past. For instance, according to writer Sarah Wildman, "a black former assistant US attorney, Thomas Figures, testified that Sessions had called him "boy", and that he had joked about the Ku Klux Klan in ways that implied he wasn't particularly appalled by their appalling tactics. UPI reported during the hearings on Figures's testimony."
Now Sessions is at it again, except this time he wants to bind and tie President Obama's hands behind his back and the measure is set for vote today.
According to TPM:
Sessions' office says he'll bring up the House-approved measure to sunset DACA (Obama's "deferred action" program for qualified young people) and prohibit further executive actions Obama has promised to take after the midterm elections, which is expected to grant temporary deportation relief and work permits for low-priority migrants.
"This is the time. It's either stopped now, or it may never be stopped," Sessions said.
Senator Jeff Sessions is guilty of wasting tax payer resources and money that could be used on the Republican-led House of Representatives. Everyone knows the Democratic-led Senate already passed immigration reform almost one and a half years ago, and the whole legal immigration reform issue would be resolved if the Do-Nothing House of Representatives led by Republicans woulld simply DO SOMETHING and pass the bill the Senate passed over a year ago.
In other words, Republicans would rather spend energy to "bind or block" the President instead of fixing the clearly broken immigration system. My fellow Americans, those are your tax payer dollars going to work. It's time to #DumpTheTea.
