• Gowdy Goes Off On Dems Over Obama’s Immigration Amnesty

    Rep. Trey Gowdy let loose on Democrats Wednesday who’ve supported or stood by in silence while Obama’s executive action on immigration is pushed through.

    “You may benefit from the president’s failure to enforce the law today,” Dowdy said during a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Obama’s insistence to push through his amnesty plans, despite a federal judge ordering him not to.

    “The president himself recognized his own inability to” create and enforce immigration law on his own, Gowdy said. “More than 20 separate times he said he lacked the power to do what he ultimately did.”

    “But I’ll make you this promise,” Gowdy added. “There will come a day where you will cry out for the enforcement of the law. There will come a day when you long for the law to be the foundation of this republic.”

    “So you be careful what you do with the law today because if you weaken it today, you weaken it forever,” he said.

    A recent CNN/ORC poll shows that an ever-shrinking amount of Americans believe allowing illegal immigrants U.S citizenship should the “main focus of government.” And a growing number of Americans believe that the government should, instead, be “developing a plan for stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into the U.S.” and deportation.

    The decreasing support for citizenship is seen among Democrats and independents and Republicans. Increased support for deportation and immigration enforcement is also seen among Democrats and independents and Republicans.

    The poll below is one reason why Trey Gowdy and his Republican colleagues are right to do everything they can do to stop Obama’s executive immigration actions.
