Letter to the editor: Toomey has no spine
An open letter to Sen. Pat Toomey:
Dear Sen. Toomey,
Your action to join with all the Trump haters on the Democratic side of the aisle and the 11 so-called Republicans to try to stop Trump from declaring the invasion of our country by illegal aliens a national emergency is despicable.
If you think your vote is proof that you are dedicated to the principle of separation of powers, you are a hypocrite. You claim it is the Congress’ job to control immigration, yet you have utterly failed to do anything to try to do so. You are a puppet of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which wants as many immigrants a possible for cheap labor.
President Obama used executive powers to do anything he wanted, in his words, “Where they (Congress) won’t act, I will.” He used those powers to do everything from raising the minimum wage for federal contract workers to creating DACA, and you did nothing to stop him, not even criticizing his overreach … and if you expect future Democratic presidents will abide by the separation principle, you are a fool.
In my opinion, you have reached the epitome of the term RINO. You have joined the ranks of Arlen Specter and John McCain as traitors to Republican voters.
You have no spine, and you have lost the support of conservative and pragmatic Republicans from this point on.
