Cruz says that GOP Senate must block almost all Obama nominees starting with AG Designate Lynch as a response to the President’s unconstitutional acts — the Amnesty Order in particular
Cruz pointed out that Lynch supports the President’s unconstitutional policies and practices on immigration
GOP House Speaker Boehner had called on Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions to lead the fight and push back against Obama’s immigration policies in the U.S. Senate
Politico is reporting that “Texas Sen[ator] Ted Cruz is demanding that Republicans block the nomination of Loretta Lynch as attorney general until President Barack Obama relents on his immigration policies....” (See “Cruz: Block Lynch until Obama blinks on immigration” by Manu Raju, 2/3/15, Politico [http://www.politico.com/story/2015/02/ted-cruz-block-loretta-lynch-114863.html]).
The article on the internet magazine goes on to say that Cruz, a likely presidential candidate, said in an interview earlier today that Republicans should use “every procedural tool” to block Obama’s efforts to stop the deportations of roughly 5 million undocumented immigrants; and that the Texas Senator called on the GOP-led Senate Judiciary Committee to block Loretta Lynch’s nomination and for Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to deny her a confirmation vote on the floor.
