Image: Jeff Sessions: Obama's Immigration Policies 'Unraveling'
Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions took to the Senate floor to denounce President Barack Obama's policies on illegal immigration. He predicted that lawmakers down the line would push to grant citizenship to children who crossed illegally into the country, Breitbart rdeported.

"We can all expect five or 10 years from now ... politicians in this very body will probably be saying these illegal immigrants 'came here through no fault of their own' and are entitled to citizenship," Sessions said.

"Unilateral" administration policies, including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, have served as an inducement for more illegal immigration, he said. Obama had set "a precedent that those who come to America at a certain age will receive special exemptions from the law."

Sessions rhetorically asked: "Is this the policy of a great nation?" Answering: "It's a policy of a nation that believes [in and] advocates for open borders. But it's not a policy that is compatible with a system of law, duty, and order," according to Breitbart.

Immigration laws are not being enforced, and the system is "unraveling before our eyes," Sessions said. He called for a restoration of order on the nation's borders.

It would have been better for the Obama administration to send a clear message to families in Central America that their children will not be granted permanent asylum and U.S. citizenship. Such clarity would have been more humane, Sessions said, than actions which encouraged many to set out on a dangerous journey to America, Breitbart reported.
