Procedural Vote on DHS Funding Blocked in Senate

AS CRIMINALS CONTINUE ENTRY INTO U.S. WITH FULL KNOWLEDGE OF OBAMA REGIME

by Sharon Rondeau

(Feb. 4, 2015) — On Tuesday, Senate Democrats, joined by Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, voted against opening deliberations on HR 240, passed by the House of Representatives on January 14, which funds the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) but prohibits Obama’s announced executive actions on illegal aliens.

Sixty votes were needed to begin discussion of the House bill.  McConnell’s “no” vote was reportedly cast “so that he could bring it up again under Senate rules.”

On November 20, Obama declared that illegal aliens related to those already allowed to remain in the country under his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program launched in 2012 would be spared from deportation hearings for an initial three years.  Memoranda issued the same day by DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson show that DHS agencies were “directed” to halt deportation proceedings on virtually all illegals either in detention or apprehended in the future in order to conserve “limited resources.”

Members of both political parties claim that national security is at stake by stalling passage of a DHS appropriations bill, given that current DHS funding expires on February 27.

Democrats objected to the five riders approved by the House which block Obama’s “executive amnesty.”

The Washington Post characterized Republicans’ efforts to block the implementation of Obama’s declarations as an “assault on President Obama’s signature accomplishments and his ambitious budget proposal,” but the deliberations on Tuesday were not connected to Obama’s budget and ideas for “Creating a 21st century economy” with the assistance of approximately $1.5 trillion in new taxes.  Rather, the vote was a procedural one to open debate, as stated by Sen. Roy Blunt.

Before the Senate began considering HR240, major media had expressed doubt that it would pass the upper congressional chamber in its current form.

In a statement prior to the Senate’s scheduled deliberations on the bill, Speaker of the House John Boehner urged Senate Republicans and Democrats to “stand with the American people and to block the president’s actions.”

The website govtrack.us has reported that HR 240 “is provisionally dead due to a failed vote for cloture on February 3, 2015. Cloture is required to move past a Senate filibuster or the threat of a filibuster and takes a 3/5ths vote. In practice, most bills must pass cloture to move forward in the Senate.”

On Monday, the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) reported that approximately 5.5 million illegals or those suspected of being legally ineligible to work in the U.S. have been granted work permits since 2009.

Rapists, murderers, car thieves, kidnappers and drunk driver illegals have been released to American communities and knowingly allowed to remain in the country since Obama took office in 2009.  An ABC News article dated February 3, 2015 relating its own investigation reveals that “Homeland Security whistleblowers” reported that visas have knowingly been given by the regime to those suspected of fraud, forgery, money-laundering, and other crimes applying for EB-5 visas.

In its report concerning the awarding of such visas to foreign investors in the U.S. economy, ABC reported:

A Feb. 1, 2013 Homeland Security internal review obtained by ABC News also lays out in stark detail the breadth of the troubles afflicting some of the roughly 600 so-called regional centers — private sector entities certified by Homeland Security to recruit foreign investors for specific business ventures that will qualify for EB-5 visas. The document summarizes 41 investigations, some open and some now closed, into allegations ranging from espionage to fraud to drug trafficking involving investors in various EB-5 investment projects.

One regional center, run by an Iranian-born businessman living in Beverly Hills was approved to raise roughly $25 million in investment money from foreign sources even when one of his businesses was being raided by agents. Federal officials told ABC News the businessman is suspected of allegedly smuggling banned items to Iran.

Another regional center raised money from Chinese investors to finance the construction of federal buildings, including an FBI headquarters building in San Diego, raising what one internal document called “national security concerns” that “pertain to Chinese investors having visibility to FBI blueprints/information.”

Whether or not Obama’s executive actions are constitutional is also a matter of debate, with at least one federal judge having written in an opinion in a case involving an illegal alien that they are not.

As reported on Wednesday, DHS has reportedly warned county sheriffs that expected funding may not arrive if Congress does not “send President Obama the DHS funding bill that he wanted (rubberstamping the president’s executive amnesty).”

Also on Tuesday, the House voted to repeal another of Obama’s “signature” achievements, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA), colloquially termed “Obamacare” and admitted by one of its chief architects to have been passed without the “transparency” promised by Obama when he first entered the White House.

The Republican-controlled House has voted in favor of repealing Obamacare on numerous other occasions, but a Democrat-majority Senate did not deliberate those measures.

Whether or not Obama is constitutionally qualified to occupy the White House is a question neither political party is willing to deliberate.  Obama claims a father who was a foreign national and a birth in Hawaii which is unsubstantiated by the declared forgery posted on the White House website on April 27, 2011 to satisfy Donald Trump’s demands that Obama release proof of his birthplace.

No hospital anywhere in the world has claimed to be Obama’s place of birth.  The state of Hawaii allows for late registrations of alleged births on the word of a relative without corroboration.  In the past, Hawaii has issued birth certificates to foreign-born children as discovered by a law enforcement investigation into Obama’s birth certificate image which commenced in September 2011.

Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.”

By and large, the mainstream media has not permitted readers to leave comments referencing the investigation by the Maricopa County, AZ Cold Case Posse and its findings that Obama’s birth certificate and Selective Service registration form are “computer-generated forgeries.”

While Obama has stated that “breaking the rules is wrong,” and forgery of a government document is a federal felony, he has remained in the White House.

Two years ago, Obama still insisted that his regime “is the most transparent administration in history.”

On March 1, 2012, the same day as the posse’s first press conference revealing its conclusions regarding Obama’s “documentation,” the group Californians for Population Stabilization (CAPS) reported that an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) press release indicated that a member of the “violent street gang” MS-13 was “sentenced to more than four years in prison for illegally re-entering the United States after having been previously deported following an investigation led by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations.”

The press release went on to say that the apprehended man was sentenced to “55 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release.”

CAPS Senior Fellow Michael Cutler, a retired INS agent, divulged that the offender “had been convicted of joining with two other MS-13 members and attacking three victims, leaving one of the victims with what would appear to be life-altering injuries as a result of having had his skull fractured,” working with two other gang members in Maryland, where ICE reports MS-13 operates in “Prince George’s, Montgomery, Howard and Frederick Counties, and elsewhere in Maryland and the United States.”

A reference in Cutler’s March 1, 2012 article to a piece in Military.com titled “FBI Says Gangs Infiltrating the U.S. Military” now leads to a blank page.

According to Title 8, Section 1182 of the U.S. Code, illegal aliens who are “inadmissible” to the U.S. include drug-traffickers, adults who have not been immunized against measles and other diseases, perpetrators of crimes of “moral turpitude,” prostitution, money laundering, or anyone who is a member of a terrorist organization.

In its description of the DACA program, which was not passed by Congress, the regime said:

Over the past three years, this Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to transform the immigration enforcement system into one that focuses on public safety, border security and the integrity of the immigration system. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues to focus its enforcement resources on the removal of individuals who pose a danger to national security or a risk to public safety, including individuals convicted of crimes with particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons, and repeat offenders, DHS will exercise prosecutorial discretion as appropriate to ensure that enforcement resources are not expended on low priority cases, such as individuals who came to the United States as children and meet other key guidelines.  Individuals who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines below may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and may be eligible for employment authorization.

Cases of measles first reported at Disneyland in December have now spread to at least seven states and number 85.  In late summer and early fall, as children returned to school, a virus known as EV-D68 sent hundreds of children to emergency rooms, particularly in the Midwest, and resulted in a number of deaths.

Five cases of EV-D68 were reported in California in February of last year.

During his 2008 campaign, Obama promised to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.”

One Response to "Procedural Vote on DHS Funding Blocked in Senate"

    Without the DNC getting entitlement votes from illegals on taxpayer dollars, the DNC might be running low on entitlement votes for future retirements. Rape, robbery, murder, thieves, lying under oath, scams, drunks- all seem to reveal the real same personality types that we see in all levels of the DNC. Jarrett, Holder, Obama (Bari Malik Shabazz) are all Muslims enjoying living and creating Caliphate in the U.S. on taxpayer’s dollars. Most Americans don’t have any idea of what is going on and are frustrated and don’t care. They don’t know that Obama and his criminal assistants have illegally blocked our Constitutional right to serve Criminal Presentments in any court in the U.S. to petition corruption in political positions. A coup/usurpation has been quietly in place since 2008.
