(CNSNews.com) - Constitutional expert and syndicated talk show host Mark Levin said at an American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) summit in Washington, D.C., that the “Republican leadership likes amnesty” and has “sold out the voters.”

CNSNews.com asked Levin, “Senator Sessions has said that Congress has the power of the purse when it comes to Obama’s executive actions. Do you think that Republicans would vote ‘no’ on a CR [continuing resolution] that would fund any executive actions regarding immigration?”

“No I think the Republican leadership likes amnesty,” Levin responded. “I think the Republican leadership has sold out the voters, and I think right now – as I understand it – they’re working with the left and the Democrat Party in the House to cobble together a majority and fund Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty. So I think it’s a complete disgrace.”

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) released a statement the same day that President Obama announced his executive order regarding immigration, saying that not only does his ‘executive amnesty violate the law’ but the way to stop it is to use ‘Congress’ power of the purse.’

“President Obama’s executive amnesty violates the laws Congress has passed in order to create and implement laws Congress has refused to pass,” Sessions said. “This amnesty plan was rejected by the American people’s Congress. By refusing to carry out the laws of the United States in order to make his own, the president is endangering our entire constitutional order.”

“The president’s unconstitutional action is a direct threat to our Republican system of government and will have catastrophic consequences for the American people,” Sessions said. “It must be stopped, and the way to stop it is by using Congress’ power of the purse. The House should send the Senate a government funding bill which ensures no funds can be spent for this unlawful purpose.”
