In the video below, Senator Jim Inhofe gives a very detailed explanation of Obama's amnesty plan. He also released the following statements today:
As the Ranking Member of the Environment and Public Works Committee, I recently released a report titled “Failure of Leadership: President Obama and the Flawed Federal Response to the BP Disaster.”
This report concluded that President Obama did not provide adequate resources to the citizens located off the Gulf of Mexico in response to the BP disaster. In the report, I listed specific examples of the Obama Administration’s failure to act during the Gulf spill.
It is my continued hope that the residents close to the Gulf of Mexico start receiving adequate resources in order to rebuild from this disaster.
I am disappointed that the liberal majority in the United States Senate confirmed Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court.
As the first Senator to register my opposition to her nomination to this lifetime position, I remain alarmed with her lack of judicial experience as well as her continued disdain for our nation’s military, her views on civilian trials for terrorists, and her disregard for the second amendment.
After the earthquake that devastated Haiti last January, orphans who were already involved in the adoption process were permitted inside the United States on humanitarian parole while their American families finished the adoption process in the United States courts. Due to unnecessary bureaucratic red tape that the adoptive families of this group of orphans faced, I introduced the Help Haitian Adoptees Immediately to Integrate Act of 2010 (HELP Haiti Act) with U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.) and U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.). With bipartisan support, this bill passed the U.S. Senate before Congress left for August recess. This legislation will provide much needed relief to these adoptive families as it authorizes the Secretary of Homeland Security to make a one-time adjustment of status to this set of Haitian orphans.
Recently, a public internal memo was released by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services officials which indicated that President Obama wants to grant amnesty to thousands of illegal immigrations. I find this immensely troubling, and will continue to oppose legislation that allows any form of amnesty to illegal immigrants.
