This is what some consider a stunning admission on possible White House strategy for dealing with -- illegal immigration a democratic congressman.
Luis Gutierrez out of Illinois reportedly saying but he.
He drafted a memo to the White House explaining how to go around congress and pushed through backdoor amnesty for millions of illegals -- -- listen.
-- -- So if true what is that.
-- Joseph Walsh Republican congressman from Illinois considered as legislation this week that.
Relates this issue with sir good morning and welcome back -- it's on the oversight and government.
Reform committee before we get to what you did this week.
What do you believe is the agenda here.
The Obama administration bill I think it's been pretty clear that their agenda is amnesty.
They promised comprehensive illegal immigration reform when they came into office.
Clearly the president politically knows that that's not acceptable and and we're seeing the same old pattern.
When he can't get something done legislatively.
He does it by executive Fiat he's done that in other -- Reno's.
And it sure seems like with this latest directive with ice of last year.
Two only apprehended and pull over.
Illegal immigrants who pose a national security risk.
And ignore all the others.
That that's amnesty by by executive order and Billy other troubling thing is -- -- for.
You got evidence points ahead -- what eleven to fifteen illegals in this country or whatever the figure is.
Seems like nobody's quite sure.
Given the -- you have at your disposal would it not seem Smart to go after those that would poses a danger to the public.
Well look federal law requires.
Local law enforcement to worked with the feds.
When picking up illegals and it doesn't matter who -- illegals are I mean they're required to enforce this law.
And by this directive this president now is ignoring.
Instructing his department to ignore.
The vast majority of illegal immigrants bill.
That are picked up I think that's there we -- against you know federal -- there was also a political statement it if you listen to what he said.
And that is that you you're not gonna get -- visiting through congress this is your best round what do you think about that.
-- bill let's just it's so troubling because he's acknowledging.
That the American people.
Are against what he's doing because he he won't go through the typical legislative.
Will of the people process.
So Wii's gonna try to do it around the will of the people we've seen him do this when he couldn't get cap and trade.
Past he then sent his EPA out to direct executive order after executive order.
Trying to get cap and trade vis -- -- you know the executive department.
He's doing the same thing here with immigration policy and that about other troubling thing I was gonna mention was we were told last year when this directive came out.
That this was direct this was advised by -- written by.
It sure sounds like from congressman Gutierrez.
That outsiders himself and others drafted this directive.
This administration has a dangerous they have enough.
Farming the stuff 22 things -- it to get through quickly we just talked to -- to -- is office and they Telesis is old news.
Is it -- it's not old yeah go ahead.
I mean it's this is this is a directive of last year.
Which -- changed.
The policy of ice it's not old -- -- current news.
-- you just had.
A piece of legislation.
That deals directly with Sanctuary Cities and those are American cities where it's either been stated or implied.
That if you are illegal living in that city authorities won't go after you what is your amendment do on that front.
Again common sense bill it's been federal law for twenty years that local law enforcement is required to communicate.
With federal officials when they pick up illegals.
Sanctuary Cities by definition.
Don't cooperate in fact they work against federal law.
And yet we've continued to give them the resource is to enforce these and you want to cut out that resource -- which I assume means money is that right.
Which means money if there in defiance of federal law you've got the entire state of Oregon.
Which pass legislation prohibiting.
Local law enforcement prohibiting them.
-- from cooperating with the feds why do we continue to give the state of Oregon or the city of San Francisco.
Which is a refuge for illegals why do we give them the money to enforce these laws it makes no sense if passed in the house we'll see that has legs of the of this.
Of the -- Just lost thank you for your time out of Illinois today thank --
