This Is Why Obama’s Amnesty Must Be Defunded NOW

No Amnesty Protest
When Obama’s Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson testified before the House Homeland Security Committee a few days ago he said a short-term funding measure for his agency will be a “very bad idea,” telling Congress that such a bill would hold up everything from hiring Secret Service agents to paying for border security.

But it would not, according to Stephen Dinan of The Washington Times, pose a problem for Department of Homeland Security officials who wasted little time in ramping up for President Obama's amnesty, by posting 1,000 job openings the day after his announcement and announcing it already has space for hundreds of employees at a new location in Arlington, Virginia — an indication that it had laid its plans well before Mr. Obama's announcement.

And even though Mr. Obama said his policy is temporary, according to Dinan, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is hiring the employees for permanent positions, at salaries of up to $157,000 a year, according to the job postings listed on the official federal jobs website. (emphasis ours)

"USCIS is taking steps to open a new operational center in Crystal City, a neighborhood in Arlington, Virginia, to accommodate about 1,000 full-time, permanent federal and contract employees in a variety of positions and grade levels," Dinan reported the agency said in an internal email to employees on Monday. "The initial workload will include cases filed as a result of the executive actions on immigration announced on Nov. 20, 2014."

A number of the job openings were posted the day after that Nov. 20 announcement, and those postings have already expired, suggesting the agency already has filled some of the slots.

DHS didn't respond to questions seeking comment on its hiring binge.

Ken Palinkas, head of the labor union that represents USCIS employees said the large scale of the hiring and the new office space suggests to him that the White House had its plans in place for some time ahead of Mr. Obama's announcement last month.

"It's so orchestrated it's pathetic," he said.

Yet, in response to Obama’s well-orchestrated plan to move forward with hiring 1,000 new bureaucrats to process his illegal amnesty paperwork House Republican leaders are pitching a plan that would fund the Department of Homeland Security through March – more than enough time for Obama to begin handing out green cards and Social Security cards unless Congress prohibits him from doing so.

A vote on the so-called Yoho-Price plan is likely to come next week, but it does nothing in its present form to actually stop Johnson from hiring his 1,000 new amnesty bureaucrats or printing and mailing green cards and Social Security cards to over 5 million presently illegal aliens that Obama plans to legalize.

Sen. Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican who has taken the lead in fighting Mr. Obama's policy, said the new facility in Virginia is "a clear symbol of the president's defiance of the American people, their laws and their constitution."

"He is hiring federal employees to carry out a directive that violates the laws Congress has passed in order to foist on the nation laws Congress has repeatedly refused to pass," Mr. Sessions said in a statement.

Senator Sessions is right; 1,000 new amnesty bureaucrats can do a lot of damage between now and March. Unrestricted funding of DHS through March does nothing to stop the steady march of Obama’s well-orchestrated plan to remake America.

The only way to stop Obama from hiring 1,000 new amnesty bureaucrats is to affirmatively prohibit the President from spending the money to hire them and pay them NOW. It is time let rank-and-file House Republicans know that we conservatives are on to the scam in the Yoho – Price plan and that unless they stand for the Constitution, the rule of law and their own campaign promises they can expect a primary challenge in 2016.

We urge you to call or write your Representative and Senators (the Capitol switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to tell them they must vote to defund Obama’s plan to hire 1,000 new amnesty bureaucrats NOW, not in March after they have already sent millions of Social Security cards to illegal aliens. SIGN and SHARE OUR PETITION TO STOP OBAMA'S EXECUTIVE AMNESTY!
