UPDATE:  8/1/2014 10:30 Ted Cruz:  Very encouraging to see Republicans in the House uniting to‪#‎StopObamasAmnesty‬.

UPDATE 8/1/2014 10:20 p.m.  See Results here

The issue being discussed on the House floor is the DACA Program.  This is the program the Senator Cruz was referring that is allowing for Obama’s amnesty.  The vote on this Border Security Spending Bill has been underway.  For your information:

DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

The president has been granting amnesty via a provision which Senator Cruz says is the root cause of the border crisis.  The number you may still be able to call is 202 224 3121.  Tell your Congressman you are against amnesty and that you do not want DACA program in the spending bill that is being passed. Say you support Senator Cruz’s effort to stop Obama’s amnesty. Boehner’s Border Bill was stopped yesterday thanks to so many who called in to complain that it didn’t go far enough.  The vote tonight will be at 9 pm. I will add updates as needed.

From the Department of Homeland Security

Over the past three years, this Administration has undertaken an unprecedented effort to transform the immigration enforcement system into one that focuses on public safety, border security and the integrity of the immigration system. As the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) continues to focus its enforcement resources on the removal of individuals who pose a danger to national security or a risk to public safety, including individuals convicted of crimes with particular emphasis on violent criminals, felons, and repeat offenders, DHS will exercise prosecutorial discretion as appropriate to ensure that enforcement resources are not expended on low priority cases, such as individuals who came to the United States as children and meet other key guidelines.  Individuals who demonstrate that they meet the guidelines below may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals for a period of two years, subject to renewal, and may be eligible for employment authorization.

You may request consideration of deferred action for childhood arrivals if you:

Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;Entered without inspection before June 15, 2012, or your lawful immigration status expired as of June 15, 2012;Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

Individuals can call USCIS at 1-800-3… you can get the rest at their site.

In the meantime check out the spin being spewed all over this article in the Huffington Post. Predictable.

Levity With a Political Purpose. Photo Bomb Away, Congressman!

Photo Bomb Louie

By Isabel Matos

Gimmicky or not, Louie Gohmert is making headlines with his recent photo bombs.  Above he appears between Ralph Reed and Kevin McCarthy, “next-in-line” to John Boehner who replaced Eric Cantor after his June 3rd defeat. Here is what it was really about: Boehner using threats to have McCarthy elected.

Next, Gohmert introduces a bill offering a Million Dollar Reward for recovering the lost Emails which he says they know are out there, and $500,000 for any information on who destroyed them. He tells Bill Hemmer Holder needs to go and that this offer is one way of working around his “Just Us” not Justice department that he is convinced will not do anything about it.

Last, I could not have said it better than Caleb Howe myself but will add that maybe Louie wanted to call attention to the establishment winner of Oklahoma’s race, James Lankford.  I like the “GOP We’re Watching You” feel to it.  It is both funny and brilliant. And it still has me laughing.

He’s coming. He’s coming. He’s coming.

Louie Gohmert doesn’t know who you are. He does’t know what you want. But what he does have are a very particular set of skills; skills he has acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you put him in your camera shot, that’ll be the end of it. He will not look for you. He will not pursue you.

But if you don’t, he will look for you. He will find you, And he will photo bomb your SOUL.

To do justice, I am listing a few videos of the exchanges between Louie Gohmert and Eric Holder. Exchanges? More like personal confrontations, which is great! Eric Holder DOES NOT LIKE Congressman Gohmert, and that should makes us like him even more.  Any Republican who can rattle Eric Holder and make him lose composure is doing his job. The clips are not just about the IRS scandal and date back a few years in some cases. Thank you, Congressman for all you do!
