Cornyn Statement on Don't Ask Don't Tell and the DREAM Act

I made the following statements today regarding the Don't Ask Don't Tell repeal and the Dream Act.

Don't Ask Don't Tell:

With three of the four military service chiefs expressing clear reservations over the proposed repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy, today’s vote shows blatant disregard for the opinions of those who know our military best. With our troops engaged in combat overseas, now is not the time to increase the level of stress on our Armed Forces through such a dramatic policy change. It is a disgrace that this latest item from the liberal legislative wish-list is being

The Dream Act - More Dirty Tricks from the Lame Duck Democrats

Once again, Lame Duck Democrats (led by the arrogance of Sen. Harry Reid, D-NV) are playing dirty politics to will try and shove the Dream Act through the Senate without proper debate. Clearly, Reid and the Democrats could have passed the Dream Act (SB 3962 & 3963) earlier this year when they had a filibuster proof majority (before the election of Scott Brown). For whatever reason, they let down the Hispanic voters by their continuous playing of political games with this important piece of legislation. The vote will happen today at 2:45pm EST.   Read more »

Democrats are so desperate that they use tricks to try to get the Latino vote

One of the most well-known Hispanic Republican faces is Adryana Boyne. She recently debated Democrat Diana Flores on the Spanish television program, "Contacto Immigrante." The Democrat blamed the failure of the Dream Act on the Republicans for keeping the bill from coming to the Senate floor. Not one Republican voted in support of the bill.   Read more »

Senate Democrats Vote to Kill DREAM Act and defy Lady Gaga on "don't ask, don't tell"

Yesterday Democrats in the US Senate voted against cloture on the DREAM act. Their three "NO" votes also helped kill the repeal of the US military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, despite the pleadings of Lady Gaga and recent text exchanges between her and Senator Harry Reid.  Reid was among the three Senators who voted no.   Read more »

Cornyn Statement on the Defense Authorization Bill

Today, I released the following statement regarding his intention to vote against the motion to proceed to the Defense Authorization Bill:

Though this bill typically enjoys bipartisan support, this year Senate Democrats have attached language to the bill that represents a blatant attempt to score last-minute votes just weeks before an election. The bill includes language that would require military hospitals to provide abortions on

Stop the Cheap Political Tricks

The DREAM Act is probably worthy of discussion for the debate about immigration reform policy; however, the American public should not be forced to support a bill of this nature by tacking it on to the Defense Authorization Bill, a military spending bill that is crucial to the security of this nation.

Once again the Democrat controlled senate is up to more of the cheap political tricks the American voter has some to resent.  Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) announced this week; the immigration amnesty plan called the DREAM Act will be pushed through as an amendment to the Defense Authorization Bill.  Also tied to this bill is a social engineering bill attempting to change the military’s “Don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

America Under Seige

“Let us not grow tired of doing good, for in due time we shall reap our harvest, if we do not give up.” - Galatians 6:9

AMERICA is under siege make no mistake about that! Our own government has declared outright war with the American people on many fronts. The Obama administration has declared War on Christianity. Obama has taken arms and declared open season on the unborn child.
