Border supplemental fails to stop Obama executive amnesty

August 1, 2014, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Nathan Mehrens today issued the following statement urging rejection of H.R. 5230 as modified, the $694 million border supplemental that does not include the riders necessary to block more executive actions from the Obama administration to grant amnesty:

“House leadership is once again pushing its border supplemental through without including the necessary riders that will stop the White House from taking more arbitrary executive actions that might suspend deportations, grant legal status to millions presently here illegally, excuse visa overstays, or even grant refugee status. This is a missed opportunity to fully deal with the problems on the border and in our local communities. And fails to address the root cause of the current crisis: Obama’s flagrant disregard for the rule of law.”
