Senate rejects border fence
The Washington Times ^ | 06/18/2013 | Stephen Dinan

Posted on 06/18/2013 1:13:54 PM PDT by Carbonsteel

Senators on Tuesday rejected building the 700 miles of double-tier border fencing Congress authorized just seven years ago, with a majority of the Senate saying they didn’t want to delay granting illegal immigrants legal status while the fence was being built.

The 54-39 vote to reject the fence shows the core of the immigration deal is holding. The vote broke mostly along party lines, though five Republicans, including Sen. Marco Rubio and the rest of the bill’s authors, voted against the fence, and two Democrats voted for it.

These dishonest SOB's will not he happy with anything less then full blown amnesty. They will continue to put a pretty pink ribbon on this package; in the end once they pass the bill, like Obamacare, we'll find out what's inside and it will be nothing good for the American people.

If these sellouts want to give this nation to the Mexicans, we the people will have to stand by and watch because the politician's in Washington are dead set on doing nothing but that and everything else going on right now is just a smokescreen.

We’ll see if CW-II turns out to be cheaper than that fence...senate.

The U.S. Senate - the world’s most repulsive, septic, and loathsome (un)deliberative body.

Critters all, and destined to be treated as such.

They will not be happy until we have so many terrorists here that daily murderous attacks can be used to ram through the most repressive laws the world has ever seen.

It happened when the Republicans sold their souls to the progressives.

Our politicians have sold us out. They have cheapened the value of American citizenship.

If they lived along the border and their kids had to attend public schools in the area, you better believe that they would build a fence.

So they’ve gone on record as being liars, what a surprise. It’s not like anyone believed they ever actually build the barrier unless they could figure out how to make it cost ten times more and put parts of it in their favorite states rather than along the border.

I’d have to think about that. At the very least, he belongs back home. He’s unfit to hold that office.

This is a black and white issue.

Should our nation exist in it’s present configuration or not?

This is a vote to turn it into a Mexican state or not.

Requescant in pace Rubio’s Presidential Chances.

He’s finished as a GOP candidate in 2016 - finished.

EACH and EVERY ONE of the damn elitist bastards who voted this down need to be flushed out of office.

Just gets worse and worse, doesn’t it? The wonderful immigration advocates are angry about any attempt to control the border.

Soon the pos criminals from other countries will be your fellow citizens only with more rights than you, as protected minorities.

Rubio has promised the demopub machine a vast swath of predictable and compliant government dependents. And all it requires is the death of the nation. Almost a no-brainer for them.
