It appears Michelle Bachmann has spilled the beans: Congressional Republicans are not going to do anything in response to Little Barry Obama’s amnesty decree. But we sure are getting some tough talk from North Carolina’s congressional delegation.
Fifty House Republicans — including NC’s Walter Jones — have signed a letter seeking the defunding of federal agencies or offices that would assist with the execution of the amnesty decree.
Mark Meadows sounded outraged — about Obama not including Congress in the process — in a piece he wrote for Fox News. George Holding took a similar approach. The Boy Wonder of the 8th District, Richard Hudson, doubled down:
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) promised to do everything he can to stop Obama.
“Granting amnesty to those here illegally is an affront to American workers and the people who are trying to join our country legally,” Hudson said. “As I’ve said before, I recognize our immigration system is broken and in need of reform, but I cannot and will not support any type of immigration reform until we secure the border first. We need to pass permanent, meaningful reforms that address the root of the problem to stop the influx of illegal immigration. I will do everything in my power to block the administration’s illegal amnesty policies and remain committed to working with my colleagues to secure our borders and fix our broken immigration system.”
“Join our country” ??? Is ”everything he can” limited to what Weepy John Boehner will allow him to do? It now looks like the only options left are a short-term, limited government funding bill, and a willingness to face down Obama on a possible government shutdown. It will be interesting to see exactly what ”everything” Rich Hudson “can do” actually looks like.
