Video: Law Officers Address Concerns over Gang of Eight Bill During Capitol Hill Press Conference

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

A number of the nation’s law enforcement officers joined us for our Hold Their Feet to the Fire event last week to speak with some of our radio hosts and express their concerns about the lack of immigration enforcement from the Obama Administration, but especially the process used by the Gang of Eight in crafting the comprehensive immigration reform bill that was introduced on April 17th.

Many of the law enforcement officers joined Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-Alabama) and David Vitter (R-Louisiana) during a press conference held on Thursday, April 18, where they discussed that those charged with enforcing our nation’s immigration laws were not asked for their input as the Gang of Eight’s plan was being drafted.

You can watch the main excerpts of the press conference below (with special thanks to the office of Sen. Jeff Sessions).

    Ignoring our Police is a RED FLAG…this is Un American.
    EACH SENATOR needs to Answer to these Police Agencies
    individually at a Televised Hearing…wearing our Police can
    Rip Them to Shreds…..We are a Nation preserved by law enforcement..

    The Gang of Eight has no concern for law Enforcers
    or for the American Public…..this Bill needs to
    be scrapped right NOW for those reasons alone.
    TREASON.

    These guys are right. This should be shown on prime time television on all stations so that Americans who aren’t awake can see what ‘our gov’t’ is doing to our country!

      Enforcement and Border Security are way more important
      than Walmart and McDonalds being able to hire these Illegal Aliens.
      These criminal Invaders need to be ARRESTED…and DEPORTED…

    The silent majority can not continue to sit back and watch our country be destroyed. We need to schedule rallys in every major city supporting the unemployed Americans and against any immigration reform until the border is secured. This is one national issue that Americans of any color can agree on. The illegals have driven the wages down in every industry they have been hired. Construction, housekeeping, truck drivers, etc.. Enough !!

    Its Out of Control

    Now the immigrant enemy that lives with us attacked Canada:

    “…Two men were arrested and charged with plotting a terrorist attack against a Canadian passenger train with support from al-Qaida, police said Monday.
    The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Monday that Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, who live in Montreal and Toronto areas, were conspiring to carry out an attack against Via Rail, but posed no immediate threat….”

    This immigration Bill’s timing was all wrong before the attacks….its completely insane now.

    The travesty being sold the American people is deplorable. This Gang of 8 traitors are complicit with the lawbreaking aliens who have aligned with special interest groups & other powermongers to perpetuate further fraud on the American taxpayer.
    As a legal immigrant, I have jumped all the hurdles (as have my family members), to respectfully honor the opportunity to become a citizen of this country. The cost, wait, separation from family & struggle to attain this status have all been great, yet I believed it was a worthwhile pursuit.
    Legal Immigrants are clearly the fools! Penalized!
    Illegals break the law, demand accomodation & require the “rules” be changed for them – Rewarded!
