Sellout! Ryan’s Spending Bill Fully Funds ALL of Obama’s Immigration Agenda

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Speaker Paul Ryan is ushering through Congress a $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill which would fully fund all of President Obama’s immigration agenda along with a disastrous quadrupling of low-wage foreign workers allowed into the country under the H-2 visa program.Extended-interview-House-Speaker-Paul-Ryan

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) blasted the Speaker’s legislation especially when it comes to H-2 visas:

“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,” Sessions said in a statement.

The foreign nationals who enter the U.S. on H-2B visas come for low-skilled nonagricultural jobs and work in hotels, construction, landscaping and the like, jobs, Sessions argued, that millions of Americans would like to have.

“At a time of record immigration – with a full 83 percent 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,” Sessions continued.

In fact, its hard to find an area where Barack Obama didn’t get everything he wanted from this bill and hard to find where the immigration patriots who elected Paul Ryan got anything.

In addition to the increase in H-2B visa allowances, Sessions pointed to the lack of conditions placed on the President’s request for increased refugee admissions, meaning Obama could bring in as many refugees — who are immediately eligible for welfare once admitted— as he desires.

”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,” Sessions said.

The Alabama lawmaker continued, recalling that in his capacity as the chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, he send a list of proposals for the omnibus to appropriators intended to “improve immigration enforcement and block presidential lawlessness.” While those proposals were not included, funding for Obama’s refugee effort was.

“The bill also funds sanctuary cities, allows the President to continue issuing visas to countries that refuse to repatriate violent criminal aliens, and funds the President’s ongoing lawless immigration actions – including his unimpeded 2012 executive amnesty for alien youth,” Sessions argued.

Sessions added, “As feared, the effect is to fund the President’s entire immigration agenda.”

    Congress needs to be ABOLISHED so we can start fresh WITHOUT RINOs and DEMOCRAPS!

  • KayO

    We all knew he was a slob before he was elected as Speaker. Everyone who voted for him knew his voting record, so he should never have been put in this position.

  • JOE

    blame the republicans that put this son of a bit*ch in charge!

  • Holy Joe

    Ryan is just another RINO, same a Boehner – Why bother to have two Political Parties ? This will disgust a sufficient number of people not to bother to vote and give the election to the Crooked Clintons. If any Republicans bother to vote at all vote
    it is all the more reason to Vote for Trump to avoid a repetition of the past 7+ years. I will not donate to the Republican Party and have not done so since they put Boehner in the Speakers Seat – now, in effect, he is back again.

  • Richard Bagenstose

    and you thought thing would change , don’t worry come january, the money will be gone and they will need to pass another trillion dollar bill, they just can’t help them selves , it’s like putting a kid in a candy store , they want it all

  • Holy Joe

    Rand Paul is going to be in the deep pooh as his name is similar enough to Speaker Paul Ryan (Boehner II). and Ryan is obviously the Political Turd in The Republican’s Punch Bowl.

  • John Chism

    Many of us knew this before he was elected. Like Rubio, J. Bush and other RINO’s bought and paid for by the Big Business Lobbyists that fund their campaign. American Crony Capitalism at it’s Fascist best.

    And what’s even worse that wasn’t mentioned in the above article is that illegals will get to access the Child Tax Credit. Nice huh? Now illegals will get to file a tax return and get a bunch of free money for their Anchor Babies.

    What a complete loser. Ryan said he didn’t want the “job” unless he had complete support from the party conservatives, like blind fools, they supported him and for their support he stabbed them and the American citizens in the back. Time for Ryan to go the way of John Boner.what a disgrace Ryan is to true conservatives.
