Senate Republicans have written a letter to Janet Napolitano demanding to know “WHY” she is giving illegal aliens welfare, food stamps, housing benefits and immunity from deportation (that’s the short list). We no longer need to know why. It’s is unlawful and we demand Homeland Security cease and desist NOW, and use the U.S. Constitution to do so.
Article 1, Section 8 – The Congress shall:
…lay and collect taxes…to pay…for the common Defense and General Welfare of the United States
[DHS requested budget for Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is $10,372 MILLION, for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) $5.5 MILLION. The total budget (there is no budget, so the Continuing Resolution calls for a total of $45 MILLION. By the time both the House and Senate finished with the CR, these numbers were revised downward, but final appropriations is not clear to me.
However, there was an increased $10 MILLION for the CBP to improve cellular communications for Border Patrol that are rendered unable to make good use those communications under Obama’s Department of Justice.]
…establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization
If a person is illegal, they are NOT naturalized. We do not have a Lawful Rule of Illegal Immigration.
…Rules for the Government and Regulation of the land
[Congress must stand in support of States’ right to protect their citizens according to Federal Law. If Congress exercised their duly authorized duty, the case against Arizona would have never made it to the Supreme Court. We need Congress to back Law and stand with the people they represent, against the Executive Branch, when the Executive Branch is abusing Law.]
…calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union…and repel Invasions
[Congress must back US Law and force the Border Patrol and Immigrations and Customs Enforcement to enforce the law, repel the illegal alien invasion and fire anyone in management who refuses, and take away their pensions, insurance and all retirement benefits. Congress must face down the Courts. Legally, Congress can threaten Constitutional Amendments to undo unconstitutional rulings. Yes, that’s a slippery slope, but we’re already close to the bottom of the revine.
We need Congress to “threaten,” throw out their chests and challenge Lawlessness in every Department in Government. They have the right to do it. We the People must elect legislators who will vote against SCOTUS nominees who do not respect the Constitution, who think it lives and breathes and who want change other than through the Amendment process.]
The final instruction in Section 1 is “To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof.”
[That’s what I’m talking about. That’s it in a nutshell – execute those Powers.]
Article 1, Section 2 – The House of Representatives:
Start impeachment proceedings on Janet Napolitano immediately
Article 1, Section 3 – The Senate:
Use its authority to conduct the impeachment trial.
I commend Republicans in their battles against this lawless administration, but as we have seen, letters asking “why” are a waste of time. Calling Napolitano before the Senate Judiciary Committee was a waste of time, although because of Congressman Louie Gohmert’s persistant, you and I now know how corrupt Napolitano is. But she thumbed her nose at the whole affair. We are impotent. Law is impotent. I want someone to do something Big and Bold. Do something BOLD. Send a notice of Impeachment, or a lawful Cease and Desist order. Surely there is much more that can be done.
Immigration regulations prohibit individuals “likely to become primarily dependent on the government for subsistence” from legal admittance into the United States. But non-citizens can avail themselves of dozens of welfare programs without the federal government considering them a dependency risk.
In government-speak, an individual likely to become reliant on the government for survival is termed a “public charge.” While there is a menu of over 80 federal welfare programs in America, that status is triggered by reliance on two federal programs: Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF).
Section 212 of the Immigration and Nationality Act explains that immigrants are “inadmissible” to the United States if the U.S. Attorney General or any consular officer who interacts with them determines that he or she “is likely at any time to become a public charge.”
Despite immigration regulations that specifically state individuals may not be legally admitted if that determination is made, the real-world application of those regulations reveals a different story.
Acceptance of food stamps benefits, housing benefits, energy assistance, child care services, Medicaid and a wealth of other programs are all inadmissible in the determination of a non-citizen’s “public charge” risk, according to the Department of Homeland Security.
