Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) took to the Senate floor before the vote on the DHS funding bill that would block funds for President Obama's executive amnesty.

It is an untenable position [to uphold the President’s executive amnesty]—untenable constitutionally, untenable because it is contrary to the will of the Members of the House and Senate who oppose the President’s action—Republicans and Democrats. Perhaps most importantly, it is untenable politically because the American people strongly reject it. So why would any Senator, Democrat or Republican, when the very integrity of the Congress is under assault by an overreaching executive branch, not want to assert congressional authority at this point?
