While everyone was distracted by Donald Trump’s antics and the raucous GOP debate, the Republican Congress just passed an enormous spending bill under cover of darkness – and Obama signed it before anyone could object.
There’s a really good reason that they did this – here are five things the “omnibus” spending bill does that would outrage most Americans had they known it was being passed.
1.) QUADRUPLES Legal Immigration That Will Leave Americans JOBLESS
From Senator Jeff Sessions’ summary of the Omnibus bill:
The more than 2,000 page year-end funding bill contains a dramatic change to federal immigration law that would increase by as much as four-fold the number of low-wage foreign workers provided to employers under the controversial H-2B visa program, beyond what is currently allowed. These foreign workers are brought in exclusively to fill blue collar non-farm jobs in hotels, restaurants, construction, truck driving, and many other occupations sought by millions of Americans.
At a time of record immigration – with a full 83% of the electorate wanting immigration frozen or reduced – the GOP-led Congress is about to deliver Obama a four-fold increase to one of the most controversial foreign worker programs. The result? Higher unemployment and lower wages for Americans.
2. ) Will Allow Obama To Bring In Tons of Syrian “Refugees”
More from Sessions:
On top of this provision, the omnibus approves – without conditions – the President’s request for increased refugee admissions, allowing him to bring in as many refugees as he wants, from anywhere he wants, and then allow them to access unlimited amounts of welfare and entitlements at taxpayer expense. This will ensure that at least 170,000 green card, refugee and asylum approvals are issued to migrants from Muslim countries over just the next 12 months.
3. ) Gives A BILLION DOLLARS To Mexico And Central American Nations For Immigration
From a Democrat’s proud announcement:
Today Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX-28) announced that the Fiscal Year 2016 government funding bill includes more than $897 million worth of support for Mexico and Central America, provisions that he and Kay Granger (R-TX-12), chair of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, have fought for.
The omnibus includes $750 million in funding to implement the “United States Strategy for Engagement in Central America.”
While Democrats will argue that we cannot stop the surge of illegals without helping Mexico and Central American countries to shut it down at the source, doesn’t this basically reward those countries for flooding our border?
4. ) FULLY FUNDS Sanctuary Cities For Illegal Aliens
The bill provides funds to help so-called “Sanctuary Cities” provide assistance and relief – welfare – to illegal aliens. This puts all Americans in danger, not just the people who live in those cities.
5. ) Funds Billions In Tax Credits For Illegal Aliens
Many illegals are able to access welfare from the federal government by applying through any citizen children they might have. Ted Cruz led the charge to close this loophole that many believe costs Americans as much as $5 billion, but Democrats shut him down.
Here’s Speaker Paul Ryan talking about these “big wins:”
Senator Sessions very rightly identified this bill as the reason why Americans are in an uprise against the GOP establishment. We just can’t trust them to actually do anything conservative. If you’re outraged about this, it’s time to demand some answers and action from our worthless, spineless, Republican “representatives.”
