Obama Administration thumbs nose at Senate Judiciary Committee, refuses to testify tomorrow
Posted by Ann Corcoran on September 20, 2016
Senator Jeff Sessions had scheduled a legally required Senate hearing for tomorrow on the President’s ‘Determination’ about refugee numbers for Fiscal Year 2017 (begins in 11 days).
Here you can tell by the usually mild Senator Sessions tone that a refusal to appear, by all branches of the administration that deal with refugees, is of major concern for the nation and a clear slap in the face to all American citizens with fears for the security and economic well-being of their communities.
This is stunning! United Nations First! (Not America First!).
Sessions: Obama Administration Subordinates Concerns Of The American People To Advance Agenda Of The United Nations
WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and The National Interest made the following statement regarding the Obama Administration’s refusal to attend a hearing tomorrow about the Refugee Admissions Program:
“Despite having sufficient notice of a statutorily required hearing regarding its plans for the Refugee Admissions Program in Fiscal Year 2017, the Obama Administration has once again elected to subordinate both its relationship with Congress and the legitimate concerns of the American people to advance the agenda of the United Nations. The Department of State claims that not one official is available to appear at tomorrow’s scheduled hearing due to this week’s United Nations General Assembly and Summit for Refugees and Migrants. The Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human Services have also refused to attend tomorrow’s hearing in a strange display of bureaucratic solidarity with the Department of State’s indefensible decision. The American people deserve explanations about the Administration’s reckless plans to admit 110,000 refugees beginning on October 1, 2016. They demand that their leaders end the lawlessness and abuses in the Refugee Admissions Program, and that their leaders place the safety and security of this country first.”
Stay tuned, we will keep you posted if the lawless Administration ever deigns to follow the law regarding the UN/US State Department Refugee Admissions Program! The hoopla in the UN over refugees was yesterday and today, so is the Judiciary hearing interrupting the the bureaucrats NYC party time?
