Outgoing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has thrown his public support behind House Speaker John Boehner’s plan to fund President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty order through March.

 

“That would be a big accomplishment if we could get a bill over here that would fund all the appropriations subcommittees except for one,” Reid told reporters on Tuesday, according to The Hill. “I think it’s kind of unfortunate that they’re talking about not doing Homeland Security, but that’s the way it is.”

On Tuesday morning, in a closed-door GOP conference meeting, Boehner pitched House Republicans on a plan to fund Obama’s amnesty in the upcoming spending bill battle. The government funding portion of the Boehner plan, parts of which originated from usually conservative Reps. Ted Yoho (R-FL) and Tom Price (R-GA), would keep most of the government open until September, 2015 but would only supply monies to the Department of Homeland Security until March.

    That is not why you gained re-election, Mr. Boehner.

    There are so many conflicts with existing law concerning illegal immigration that it is pathetic.
    That competent lawyers and members of the American Legal System would even consider this is amazing. 99% of the Congress have law degrees and are members in good standing with the American Bar Association.
    I think the lawyers in this country should be having a really big party to celebrate the legal mess this is likely to cause.
    Start with violations of IRS regulations. Tax Fraud comes to mind. That involves anyone that has hired someone and not filed the appropriate information with the federal government and Social Security. We put Al Capone in jail. These people do not pay taxes if they are illegally employed by people in this country. That is Tax Fraud!
    About half of the men involved are likely to be of draftable age. They are not registered with the draft. Typically a person of foreign nationality is classified C-1. That law is still on the books.
    Then you have the current law on Obamacare and it has implications with the IRS as well.
    If these people are residents of this country all of these laws have to be applied to them.
    I don’t mean to teach lawyers their business. They know the business much better than I ever could. So why are Congress People even considering something that far afield of the laws of the land?
    I am sure the list of legal violations probably goes on and on and on.
    I am surprised this has not been addressed also in civil courts throughout the land.
    The only reason not to is someone is getting paid off somewhere, somehow and there is a legitimate reason not to apply the laws of the land. Or is there?
    I suggest there are a whole group of people up for impeachment or recall somewhere down the road if this allowed to stand.
