“Not One Person…Deported”: Rep. Sessions Changes Position on Amnesty

u-s-border

Shortly after Barack Obama announced his executive action granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions issued a harsh criticism of the order.

“President Obama’s decision today to unilaterally grant blanket amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants is an egregious abuse of power that blatantly disregards the Constitution.”

He went on to declare that any immigration reform should include a plan to “prosecute and deport criminal aliens who are currently in the United States.”

This week, however, the Republican lawmaker addressed a group of Democrats to express a wholly incongruous opinion on amnesty. He promised to use all “assets and resources” at his disposal to “create circumstances where we can have people be in this country and work, and where not one person is quote ‘thrown out’ or ‘deported.’”

For many in the Texas representative’s district and beyond, this apparent flip-flop on such an important issue is cause for his replacement in the House.
