As Twitchy reported earlier today, testimony from a House Oversight hearing on a massive security compromise of federal computer systems led a number of people to ask just what it would take for a federal employee to be fired, or at the very least shamed into resigning. Office of Personnel Management director Katherine Archuleta was reportedly offered chances to apologize and resign but “declined to do either.”
This afternoon, House subcommittees on national security and on health care, benefits, and administrative rules met to discuss President Obama’s 2014 executive actions on immigration, which allowed illegal aliens to apply for deferred action status, which protected them from deportation and authorized them to work legally in the United States. Those aliens would then be eligible to obtain Social Security numbers and other government benefits.
Among those to testify was U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director Sarah Saldaña, and Townhall editor Katie Pavlich also makes the case that it’s high time for some high-level government firings.
Just two days ago, Pavlich published a column on 121 criminal aliens who had an active case at the time of their release and were subsequently charged with homicide-related offenses.
Here’s a shocker. Are you sitting down?
Speaking of executive orders, as Twitchy reported earlier this week, Sen. Harry Reid congratulated himself on the third anniversary of President Obama’s Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive order, which he says has helped more than 660,000 DREAMers “no longer live in fear of deportation.” A lot of them have no fear of coming “out of the shadows” to Washington to protest deportation, either.
