Speaking today at The Heritage Foundation, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) condemned President Obama’s unilateral executive amnesty for ignoring America’s laws and “undermining their moral integrity.”
Granting amnesty to those who violated our immigration laws is not just unconstitutional but would undermine the rule of law, he said:
Do you believe in open borders? Or do you believe in a sovereign state that has a legitimate right to establish [rules of] entrance and exit in our country? People want a system that is lawful, that they can be proud of.
Giving away four million work permits could have consequences for the economy, Sessions said. It could drive up unemployment and lower wages, particularly for those with lower incomes.
Was President Obama right to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants by executive dictat? Tell us in the comments.
