Bob Smith Calls on Harry Reid to Bring Bill Seeking to Defund
Obama’s Executive Amnesty Plan to the Senate Floor
Bedford (August 17, 2014) – Senator Bob Smith released the following statement today regarding efforts to halt President Obama’s promise to implement amnesty via executive action:
I wholeheartedly support the efforts of Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) who is leading the fight to bring a House bill to the Senate floor that would defund DACA amnesty and as well as new attempts by the President to expand amnesty for immigrants who have come to our country illegally.
Such a bill, if passed the Senate, would stifle the President’s ability to abandon the rule of law and reshape our country’s immigration policy without the consent of the American people by way of their representatives in Congress.
I call on Majority Leader Harry Reid to bring this bill before the Senate and I urge my fellow Republican U.S. Senatorial candidates Scott Brown and Jim Rubens to join me in doing the same.
