GOP Senate Confirms AG Who Says Illegals Have Right to Work

Fucked by the Open Borders GOP

  • In 2014 I left blank on my ballot every statewide office in California in protest against the open borders GOP.  I did vote Republican for Congress . . . a mistake I will never make again.  The open borders GOP does not give a flying fuck about American citizens.

(CNSNews.com) - A Republican-controlled U.S. Senate voted to confirm an attorney general today who says that illegal aliens have a right to work in the United States but that partially born babies do not have a right to life.

The Senate took two votes on the nomination of Loretta Lynch: first, a "cloture" vote to end debate and allow a final vote on confirmation, and, then, the final vote itself.

Neither of these votes would have taken place had not Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought her nomination to the floor for consideration.

Thanks to a change in the interpretation of Senate Rule XXII that he Democratic leadership pushed through in 2013, only 50 votes (as opposed the historical 60) was needed to invoke cloture and end debate on the nomination. In fact, 66 senators voted for cloture--including 20 Republicans.

Lynch, who has been serving as U.S. attorney in the Eastern District of New York, then won confirmation as attorney general of the United States by a vote of 56 to 43. Ten Senate Republicans voted to confirm her.

At a confirmation hearing in January, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R.-Ala.) asked Lynch: "Who has more right to a job in this country? A lawful immigrant who's here, a green-card holder, or a citizen, or a person who entered this country unlawfully?"

"Well, Senator," said Lynch, "I believe that the right and the obligation to work is one that's shared by everyone in this country regardless of how they came here. And certainly, if someone's here, regardless of status, I would prefer that they be participating in the workplace than not participating in the workplace."

Under the laws of the United States, which as attorney general Lynch will be responsible for enforcing, foreign nationals illegally present in the United States are not permitted to work here.

The Wall Street boot-licking GOP does not give a damn about the American citizen worker.
