Sessions Slams House Leadership Surrender

When it comes to immigration, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is one of the best champions of the rule of law. He has steadfastly fought the Senate's comprehensive immigration reform bill as a sellout of American workers and the middle class. And Sessions has been one of the most vocal critics of any abuse of executive authority to impose another mass amnesty.

That's why his comments slamming the House's legislation to address the border crisis got my attention. Here's is an excerpt of Senator Sessions' statement:

MELT THE PHONE LINES!

The issue of illegal immigration is once again before Congress and the American people due to a man-caused crisis at the southern border. The White House is demanding $3.7 billion in additional spending, while Senate Democrats are proposing to spend a billion less.

In the House, Rep. Hal Rogers (R-KY), chairman of the Appropriations Committee, introduced legislation today that authorizes only enough spending to see federal agencies through the end of the fiscal year -- about a fifth of what the White House wants.

Kerry Pushes Hamas Proposal: Undermines Israel & Egypt

After days of intense negotiations and shuttle diplomacy, Secretary of State John Kerry submitted his proposed ceasefire plan to the Israeli cabinet Friday. Cabinet ministers unanimously rejected it.

The plan was so bizarre that the Obama Administration was forced to deny that it was promoting Hamas' demands in the document.

Who Killed The Kids?

Shells struck a U.N.-run shelter in Gaza yesterday, killing 16 Palestinians, many of them women and children. Hamas and much of the international media blamed Israel for the strike. Israel is investigating the incident and urged that there be no rush to judgment until the facts are in.

Victory! 

As you know, the Obama Administration imposed absurd travel restrictions on Israel Tuesday when the FAA banned flights into Tel Aviv's Ben Gurion Airport. The ban was supposed to last only 24 hours, but the FAA renewed it yesterday. 

Senator Ted Cruz blasted the restrictions, saying, "The facts suggest that President Obama has just used a federal regulatory agency to launch an economic boycott on Israel." I too criticized them in yesterday's daily report.

Good vs. Evil 

Earlier this week, Barack Obama stood on the White House lawn and addressed the conflict between Israel and Hamas. While he paid lip service to Israel's right to self-defense, Obama then went on to express his "serious concerns about the rising number of Palestinian civilian deaths."

Stand With Israel 

Day two of the Christians United for Israel Washington Summit kicked off this morning with briefings from leading members of Congress such as Rep. Michele Bachmann, Sen. Ted Cruz and Sen. Tim Scott. Following their remarks, thousands of pro-Israel Christians canvassed Capitol Hill, urging their elected representatives to stand with Israel.

Stand With Israel 

Christians United For Israel kicked off its ninth annual Washington Summit today. As you may know, Christians United For Israel was founded by Pastor John Hagee, and I am honored to serve on CUFI's Executive Board. 

The timing of this year's Summit seems prophetic and the mood is heavy. Thousands of pro-Israel Christians have come to our nation's capital to show their support for the Jewish state as it is once again engaged in hostilities against Islamic terrorists who have vowed to destroy it.

"The Bear Is Loose" 

We've been hearing that phrase a lot lately. White House staffers refer to Obama as "the Bear" when he is sneaking burgers behind Michelle's back or cutting loose on the campaign trail. Unfortunately, there is a very different bear loose on the international scene -- the Russian bear. 

The evidence is overwhelming that Russian forces or highly trained Moscow-aligned separatists in Ukraine shot down Malaysia Airlines flight MH17. They have routinely shot down Ukrainian fighter jets and helicopters.

BREAKING NEWS: World Instability Grows 

A Malaysian passenger jet crashed today near the Ukrainian/Russian border. Israel has launched a ground operation into Gaza. 

Border Math 

The left is losing the PR war over immigration. Public opinion and the political landscape have shifted tremendously in recent weeks. Gallup reports that "immigration/illegal aliens" now tops the public's list of the most pressing issues confronting the country. Other polls show overwhelming opposition to Obama's immigration policies.
