Senators Reach Bipartisan Deal On Trump Border Funding

5959

In what appears to be a win for President Trump, a bipartisan agreement has been reached in the Senate Appropriations Committee on a $4.6 billion funding package to address the “humanitarian crisis” at the southern border with Mexico.

CNN reports that the agreement, according to three people familiar with the deal, between Chairman Richard Shelby, an Alabama Republican, and Vermont Sen. Patrick Leahy, the top Democrat on the panel, includes $2.88 billion for the Department of Health and Human Services to be directed to the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which administration officials warned lawmakers would run out of money by the end of this month without the emergency cash infusion.

The Committee will reportedly mark up the agreement on Wednesday and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has said he plans to put it on the Senate floor by the end of next week.

Of course there is one hitch to all of this… The House (where, as Bloomberg notes, Democrats have sought to ensure that funds in the package wouldn’t be used to build Trump’s border wall or pay for raids on undocumented immigrants within the US).

As Bloomberg notes, The House plans to vote on a separate border package next week, according to Representative Henry Cuellar, a Texas Democrat who has become a point person on the issue for Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

If that plan differs from the Senate effort, the House and Senate could convene a conference committee to work out the differences.

Which means it won’t see the light of day as it appears, despite much begging for money and assistance from the left, the public face of the Democratic House refuses to admit there is any illegal immigration crisis whatsoever.

  1. Securing our borders – and meeting the humanitarian crises related to the huge invasion of illegal immigrants – is NOT a Trump win. It is an AMERICAN win, as securing our borders is a victory for American sovereignty.

    • “Mr. Hampton Scott Tonk, sir, you are WRONG, for all of those Illegal Immigrant-Aliens, IT IS DEPORTATION BACK INTO MEXICO, AND BE SENT BACK TO THEIR ORIGINAL COUNTRIES! This Is The Reason, Why That ‘We The Legal Citizens/People And The Legal Immigrants Of The USA Voted For Mr. DJ Trump'”!!!

    • Oh, Yes, Mr. Hampton Scott Tonk, Sir, It Truly Has To Be All Of Those Progressive Liberal CSI Democrats, Who Are The People That Have To Pick Up The Tab For All Of Those Illegal Immigrant-Aliens, Including All Of Those Illegal Immigrant-Alien Children Too, Because #44 Said It, Therefore, He Has To Chip In To Pay, For What He Did NOT Accomplish!!!

    and nothing will be done, the bill will go to the house and the house under polosi will just do her level best to kill the bill by putting out one of their own and they will make sure that no money will ever go to the border but what they don’t understand is that WE BUIlD the Wall is going to continue to do the work that they wont and between them and what the President actually does get for the border they will get it done and the house will be lost in 2020 back to the Republicans That’s why we have to find some really good people to run for the house and bring down the loser Dems and the RINO’s who don’t give a dam about doing anything to help this President Secure the Border All I can say is how sad for sick pathetic Polosi she should just retire now and be done with it The RINO”s in the Senate should go hide their head in shame Shame On you all

    • INCLUDING THE DUMBASS AMERICANS THAT VOTE FOR THESE COCKROACHES, INCLUDING THE REAL SUPER DUMB CLUELESS INDOCTRINATED SHITS IN COLLEGE

  4. If they do not get the wall built and resolve the mess at the border, there is going to be a civil war there with these illegals being turned around and back to Mexico. The Mexicans are getting just as fed up with this as the U.S. citizens, and Congress needs to stop playing the political obstruction gain and DO THEIR JOB. Are we paying them to campaign and sit around and insult each other. We are a sovereign nation and have a right to protect our borders and keep hordes of illegal invaders out.

    • THE MEXICANS ONLY HAD A LITTLE TASTE OF THIS DEMOCRATIC COCKROACH SHIT AND THEY ARE COMPLAINING THEY ARE NOT SET UP FOR THIS THEY’RE RUNNING OUT OF RESOURCES FOR IT.

  5. If the American people cannot see that the communist a.k.a. Democrats are trying to take America down then they are blind and deserve everything that they’re going to get. The reason for the federal government is to protect the country the borders it’s people and it’s well I’ve watched a communist a.k.a. Democrat refuse to do any and use our money illegally to give to illegal aliens for things that are people who are working can’t afford. This party needs to be taken down and taken down o if the American people cannot see that the communist a.k.a.

Is the party of evil a party of deception a party of murder and lies and deceit, in the end run by the one world order billionaires seeking control of the world for the purpose of enslavement of the 99 1/2%. God bless America God save America

  6. Ancient Rome fell because of mass corruption (we are thoroughly infected with it), over extension of their military (sound familiar?) and the removal of precious metals from their money (in the U.S. it was initiated by tricky (not a crook) Dick Nixon in 1973 – we can no longer by the 3.4-4k new car). The U.S. has the identical traits as ancient Rome, soon it will fall because of all of the above. Our Government structure mimics that of ancient Rome.

  7. We wouldn’t have to worry about ALL this Money, if the Democrats would sign the NEW Immigration Reform Bill. We wouldn’t have to be paying out $4.6 Billion Dollars like this at the Border.

    Congress always wasting our Tax-Dollars. Just trying to make Illegals more comfortable.

    When will Democrats care more about the American people then, they do for the Illegal Aliens?????

  8. It’s simple, really. The USA was formed by people trying to ESCAPE the tyrannies of dictators and others who imposed themselves OVER the majority of people, including the Rothschilds, Bilderbergers, etc., and the Illuminati. When Britain, France, Spain, and other countries sent “colonists” over to “the New World,” it was for the purpose of expansion of their own financial futures, in effect their Ruling Power. Now, those “Elites,” as THEY think of themselves, want to pull this massive economic resource (the US) BACK under their control. They are quite willing to use every flavor of deception to accomplish that. The One World Order is their intended goal, using illegal immigration and many other tactics in order to achieve what THEY want. Sowing the seeds of many varieties of corruption within OUR nation helps THEIR intermediate goal of WEAKENING the fabric of our society, so that it becomes more vulnerable to TAKEOVER !!! If you look at the long view of events in America, these patterns begin to more clearly show. It is happening, America. If we do not reinvigorate absolute values, we shall crumble into oblivion, just like Ancient Rome !!!
