Border bill with no money for border security.

Only in a lib world.

House Dems introduce $4.5B 'emergency' border bill — that excludes funding for border security

House Democrats introduced "emergency" legislation last week to address the growing migrant crisis at the southern United States border.

However, there was a glaring hole in the bill: it includes no funding for border security.

While the bill includes nearly $1 billion for "processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, medical services, and safe transportation" and more than $1 billion for programs, including legal services, intended to help migrant children, Democrats boast the bill does not fund Republican ideas, including bolstering border security.

The bill does not include funding for:

- Border security via funding for the border wall

- More beds in ICE detention facilities

Instead, the bill places strict requirements on the Trump administration requiring government officials follow regulations related to the detainment of migrant children and prohibits Homeland Security enforcement against refugee sponsors.

The requirements and lack of funding for border security is intended to "hold the administration accountable and to protect the rights and dignity of migrants," Democrats said in a press release.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) claimed over the weekend the legislation is necessary because President Donald Trump's policies have "exacerbated" existing problems at the border.

"The President's failed policies have exacerbated the situation at the border, where vulnerable children endure inhumane conditions that threaten their health, well-being and sometimes, tragically, their lives," Pelosi said. "The legislation protects families. It does not fund the Administration's failed mass detention policy, but, instead, funds effective, humane alternatives to detention with a proven track record of success."

This must come from the same place in your brain that tells you governor's races are gerrymandered. Makes the same amount of sense.

Yes, because a wall costs more than, diapers, hygiene, beds, clothing, and food, followed by healthcare and education...

The only thing sadder than some on the Left lying because the know $10B for a wall would save $50B in illegal immigrant care, is when the SAY they know it and WANT it to happen...

Op-Ed on it..

Pelosi’s Border Bill Should Be Dead On Arrival

Quote:
You can go down the list, but all of the spending items are related to meeting the needs of the illegal aliens already in the country, with no provisions for slowing the flow of additional illegals crossing the border or speeding up the rate that we are able to process them.

There’s 934.5 million for processing facilities, food, water, sanitary items, blankets, etc. $866 million would go to “reduce reliance on influx shelters to house children.” Another $200 million is allocated to develop an “integrated, multi-agency processing center pilot program for families.” You’re probably getting the idea.

There’s another serious poison pill in the package as well. One provision would, “require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will be delivered to them without any reservation.”

Are you kidding me? So not only are we not fixing the loophole that’s allowing illegal aliens to grab a kid and use them as a passport to get into the country, but we’re going to advertise the loophole to all the migrants and codify it in law?

This is a joke and a bad one at that. Unless the Democrats want to include some money for new immigration judges, more CBP officers, and some wall construction, the GOP should tell them to take this bill and go pound sand.

How much money was spent on the Obamacare website? I don't remember you complaining about that costly disaster.

Hopefully the balless Senate Republicans will see this as a gift handed to them, mark it up to include the wall and enforcement, then send it back to the House for reconsideration. Just in time to make it a 2020 campaign issue.

a lot of times when people vote in a national race they have a tendency to check all same party. a lot of governors run in presidential years.

tell me what good the multi million dollar 1,7 miles of fence repair has done

our main immigration problem HAS ALWAYS BEEN overstayed visas. BUSINESSES bring them over here.

the present events are asylum seekers which we had ample time to prepare for but didn't...cuz campaign gimmick...

now we are stuck with the humanitarian crises due to your worthless choice.

You got that right. That pack of Republican lawmakers needs to have the testicles descend, males and females included.

And this has what to do with "gerrymandering"? I see you still don't know what it means.

If it isn't doing any good please tell me why boots on the ground border patrol agents are overwhelmingly in favor of more, stronger walls?

Visa overstay is a big problem and the Trump admin, with D's fighting it every step of the way, has stepped up enforcement and deportation of visa overstays. But, to say that is the main problem is laughable. A porous border creates a whole host of other problems i.e. drug trafficking, human trafficking, increased rate of disease. At least people given a visa were vetted somewhat before they came.

Actually we are now doing something about it thanks to me and millions of others helping us dodge the Hillary bullet. You're welcome.
