Rep. John Culberson on The Savage Nation: Immigration and Cutting Off Funds for Executive Orders
If the undocumented immigrants living in the U.S. illegally are required to pay a fine and fulfill a set of obligations before they can earn a green card, be a guest worker, or achieve U.S. citizen status, is that really amnesty?
Do you think the children of illegal immigrants should be penalized for something their parents did wrong?
I don't see sending the immigrants who broke the law back to their countries as a feasible option. What would be an acceptable alternative that wouldn't be considered amnesty?
I support cutting off funds for Obama's executive orders. He is using them like a dictator to sidestep the Constitution and ignore Congress. President Obama took an oath to uphold the Constitution but he isn't doing that. This is one way that Congress can ensure that Obama doesn't abuse his power.
