Sessions to ‘Sanctuary City’ Chicago: Follow the Immigration Laws or Lose Taxpayer Dollars

From Twitchy

As Twitchy reported earlier today, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel appeared on CNN defending his lawsuit against the Trump administrationfor threatening to withhold federal funds to cities that ignore federal law and serve as sanctuaries to people in the U.S. illegally.

On Monday evening, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued his own statement, in which he cited Chicago’s “unprecedented violent crime surge” and accused the city’s political leadership of adopting “an official policy of protecting criminal aliens who prey on their own residents.”

 

 

Families of the victims of illegals have testified before Congress and called for an end to the ‘sanctuary city’ insanity, but the Dem assholes keep protecting illegal aliens instead of obeying the law and protecting American citizens.

Obama released thousands of illegal aliens into the streets with felony records including theft, sexual assault, kidnapping and homicide. The borders leak like a sieve and Trump is the first president in decades to do something to stop illegals and the flow of security risks like ISIS, Al Qaeda. The DHS admits that they’ve lost track of how many security risks have crossed the border.

Hundreds of crimes are committed by these dregs. Cop killers, rapists, child molesters,

This isn’t Ellis Island anymore. The country has become a dumping ground for illegals looking for handouts and muzzie terrorists intent on atrocities against the infidel.

Enough.

We  finally have an Attorney General who will enforce the immigration laws and hold liberal malfeasant mayors accountable.

Jeff Sessions to Obama: ‘What’s with the global governance in your ObamaTrade bill?’

At least Session read the bill, unlike other GOP flunkies who haven’t bothered.

From Breitbart.

Sen Jeff Sessions (R-AL) the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, has written a scathing new letter to Barack Obama pressuring him to explain why Obamatrade has been so secretive.
“On May 6th of this year, I sent you a letter (enclosed) regarding your request for Congress to grant you fast-track executive authority,” Session wrote to Obama on Friday in a letter provided exclusively to Breitbart News ahead of its public release. “Under fast-track, Congress transfers its authority to the executive and agrees to give up several of its most basic powers.

“These concessions include: the power to write legislation, the power to amend legislation, the power to fully consider legislation on the floor, the power to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive a two-thirds vote.

“The latter is especially important since, having been to the closed room to review the secret text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, it is clear it more closely resembles a treaty than a trade deal.

“In other words, through fast-track, Congress would be pre-clearing a political and economic union before a word of that arrangement has been made available to a single private citizen.”

The letter hones in on the new global governance, as Sessions calls it, that would be created by the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP)—which would almost certainly be approved by Congress should the House of Representatives vote in favor of Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) to fast track TPP and other trade deals. TPA, which passed the Senate a couple weeks ago, would ensure—barring some unforeseen development—the congressional approval of TPP, and collectively the two have become known as Obamatrade.

“The letter, which received no reply, asked several fundamental questions Congress ought to have answered before even considering whether to grant the executive such broad new powers,” Sessions wrote to Obama on Friday referencing his previous letter. “Among those, I asked that you make public the section of the TPP that creates a new transnational governance structure known as the Trans-Pacific Partnership Commission. The details of this new governance commission are extremely broad and have the earmarks of a nascent European Union, with many similarities.

“Reviewing the secret text, plus the secret guidance document that accompanies it, reveals that this new transnational commission – chartered with a ‘Living Agreement’ clause – would have the authority to amend the agreement after its adoption, to add new members, and to issue regulations impacting labor, immigration, environmental, and commercial policy.

“Under this new commission, the Sultan of Brunei would have an equal vote to that of the United States.”

Obama has ignored and rejected bipartisan calls for transparency on Obamatrade, and refuses to release to the public the text of TPP that TPA would fast-track. In fact, currently, only members of Congress—and certain cleared staffers with high enough security clearances, and those staffers can only go with a member—are allowed to go into a secret room in the U.S. Capitol to go read the text of Obamatrade’s TPP component.

“The implications of this new Pacific Union are extraordinary and ought to be discussed in full, in public, before Congress even contemplates fast-tracking its creation and pre-surrendering its power to apply the constitutional two-thirds treaty vote,” Sessions wrote to Obama. “In effect, to adopt fast-track is to agree to remove the constitutional protections against the creation of global governance structures before those structures are even made public.

“I would therefore ask that you provide to me the legal and constitutional basis for keeping this information from the public and explain why I cannot share the details of what I have read with the American people. Congress should not even consider fast-tracking the transfer of sovereign power to a transnational structure before the details of that new structure are made fully available for public review.”

……After the Senate passed the deal a couple weeks ago, the House could vote as early as next week–but GOP leadership is having extraordinary difficulty finding the votes necessary to pass this with surging bipartisan opposition to Obamatrade.

This is another attempt by Obama to grab unconstitutional power and surrender the United States to a global ‘world community’.  Every one of his tyrannical policies reflect his abject hatred of America and our exceptionalism.

There’s a lot at stake in this monstrosity, not the least of which are concerns over privacy and abuse of authority.

I hope it falls flat on its face.
