Sessions Slams ‘Mr. Flak at the White House’ Josh Earnest

‘I would say this to Mr. Flak at the White House ... the American people have one chance to have their voice heard’

Sen. Sessions Slams "Mr. Flak At The White House" For Blaming Election Politics For Immigration Delay (RealClearPolitics)

SEN. JEFF SESSIONS: This is the point the American people need to understand: The president now is brazenly reaffirming in even clearer language that he will carry out his amnesty plan, but only after the election in November. This is an attempt to protect his Democratic Senate candidates. In fact, just a few moments ago, said it would be wrong to inject into the election this issue. Well, I would say this to Mr. Flak at the White House, who's paid -- his salary paid by the American people. The American people have one chance to have their voice heard. The president is talking about unilateral illegal action, contrary to American law, to legalize as many as 5 million to 6 million people. And we shouldn't inject it into the election and the Democratic Senators and other senators who would oppose -- who failed to object to that, they should be protected and not being criticized for allowing it to occur? Is what we've gotten to in a democracy? That the president can make this decision, not involve the American people? No, they need to stay out of this. they shouldn't talk about it in an election. Well, when should issues be talked about, great issues facing America, if not during the election cycle?
