Senator Ted Cruz , Sen. Jeff Sessions , and many of their congressional colleagues on Tuesday called President Barack Obama's plan to take unilateral action to legalize illegal aliens following the midterm elections "lawless," and stressed that he must follow the Constitution. Obama announced on Friday in Wales that if Congress does not act on immigration reform in the way he wants, then he will take unilateral action to give illegal aliens "some path" to "be legal."
Sen. Ted Cruz said congressional Republicans in the House and the Senate should use "any and all means necessary" to stop President Barack Obama from granting an executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, which he said may include language to block the president from doing so in a stop-gap spending bill that could come to the House floor as soon as Thursday. "I think we should use any and all means necessary to prevent the president from illegally granting amnesty," Cruz said when asked at a Tuesday press conference if he'd support including a measure that the House of Representatives passed-a bill from Rep. Marsha Blackburn , a companion to his Senate version of the bill-right before August recess.
At a Tuesday press conference hosted by Sen. Ted Cruz , several members of Congress-after Rep. Marsha Blackburn brought up how Tennessee helped save Texas with luminaries of history like Davy Crockett-compared the battle they're heading into with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to the infamous historical themes of the Texas Revolution. "Being surrounded by all these Texans, I have to remind them: There would not be a Texas without a Tennessee," Blackburn said after Cruz introduced her to speak.
Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, criticizes President Barack Obama, saying he has not taking a stand on the immigration crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border and is putting off executive action until after the politically-charged midterm election in November, Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014, during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington.
