(Music to my ears!)

Report: Sen. Sessions to Chair Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration

Immigration-enforcement champion Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., is slated to take over the Judiciary Subcommittee that oversees immigration, according to media reports. Sen. Sessions has been a leading critic of President Obama’s executive amnesties and a leading advocate for protecting American workers from the adverse consequences of historically high levels of immigration.

Politico reports that Sen. Sessions will chair the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration, Refugees and Border Security, and Sen. David Vitter, R-La., will serve as its vice chair. Sen. Sessions did not comment directly on the report but told Roll Call, “I think Sen. [Chuck] Grassley’s (R-Iowa) going to announce that pretty soon.” Sen. Grassley will hold a meeting Thursday to discuss subcommittee assignments.

Sen. Sessions has been a long-time proponent of the notion that immigration policy should protect the interests of the American people, not special interests. He has stood up for the American worker by seeking immigration reforms that would help the unemployed return to the workforce and limit foreign worker visas so wages can rise. And he has been relentless in his attacks on President Obama’s executive amnesties and non-enforcement policies.

Commenting on the president’s State of the Union address, Sen. Sessions said, “On immigration, the President remains wedded to a lawless policy that serves only the interest of an international elite while reducing jobs and benefits for everyday Americans. In effect, the President delivered an address tonight to a Congress whose authority he does not recognize and to a public whose votes he has nullified with an imperial edict. Congress must use every tool at its disposal to stop this unlawful edict, end the immigration lawlessness, and reverse our slide towards congressional irrelevance.”

The Supreme Court said:.....Obama cannot give Amnesty to all the illegals......it's illegal to do this on his own.

When was this, Susan?  I heard nothing about it!

Can't remember, Read it in the last couple of weeks, Only Congress can.

Well, now I'm wondering if that was the National Supreme Court or a state supreme court...???  Can't imagine not hearing about that!!!

I am positive it wasn't the Supremes - I KNOW I would have read about it.  I spend much of each day on-line, searching out the news on multiple sites.  It certainly would have been on Breitbart, Drudge, or WND, among others!  BeforeItsNews would be a possibility, considering they will post pretty much anything from anyone!
