Congressman Jordan on CNN and 'The Bob Frantz Authority' on DHS funding

Monday morning, Congressman Jim Jordan will join me at 9:30 for his weekly visit, and we'll continue the discussion of the DHS one-week funding bill that was passed Friday night to avert a partial DHS shutdown.  There is a major rift between GOP senators and the House leadership that passed the temporary funding bill.

More importantly, we'll discuss the language in the fiscal-year funding bill that would have de-funded Barack Obama's unconstitutional executive amnesty order.

Said Congressman Jordan on CNN's 'State of the Union' Sunday:  “We passed a bill at the levels that the Democrats wanted. What we did say was, we don’t want to fund something that everyone knows is unconstitutional, legal scholars on the right and the left have said is unconstitutional, and a federal judge, a federal judge has said is unlawful."

He went on to say,
“We sent a bill over there [to the Senate] six weeks ago that did what I just described, fund it at the Democrats’ levels, but said, we’re not going to allow dollars to be used for something we all know is unconstitutional. And the Democrats said and the Senate said, for six weeks, oh, we can’t bring it up. We can’t debate it. We can’t amend it. We can’t pass it.

     “And then guess what happened? The very last day, they brought up the bill. They debated it. They amended it. They passed it. … And now all we’re saying is, let’s go to conference committee. … We know how it works. We pass something, they pass something, you go sit around a table … and you work out the differences. … What’s wrong with that process? That's how it’s supposed to work."
