There is a reason the Constitution says that appropriations start in the House; there is a reason the Constitution specifies that House members must be re-elected every 2 years.
There is a reason that Conservatives state that border security comes FIRST. There is a reason that Conservatives state that existing border law must be followed.
They said 400 a day are coming into the country. An average bus holds 50 -60. You get 4 buses and make two trips and kick them the F out. Why is this so hard? Every major city in the country transports thousands of kids every day by bus. This is because the regime in the White House wants them here.
How much fencing to secure that border would that $1.3 billion buy??
What does it take for Boehner to begin Articles of Impeachment for the Democrats Obama?
RE: How much fencing to secure that border would that $1.3 billion buy??
IT WILL HELP, BUT WON’T BE ENOUGH.
Customs and Border Protection spent $2.4 billion between 2006 and 2009 to complete 670 miles of border fence, and the vast majority of that was single-layer one line of fencing designed to keep either pedestrians or vehicles from crossing into the United States, according to a Government Accountability Office report.
The new plan calls for a double-layer fence two parallel barriers on either side of a corridor manned by Border Patrol that would require more land acquisition, more supplies and more labor to build.
There is no firm cost for the fence outlined in the “border surge” agreement announced Thursday, and the price of previous fence construction has varied wildly.
A 2009 analysis by the GAO found that the cost of pedestrian fencing ranged between $400,000 and $15 million per mile with an average of $3.9 million a mile. The price of less expensive vehicle fencing ran anywhere from $200,000 to $1.8 million a mile, for an average of $1 million a mile.

Over $23,000 per kid?
Get them each a car and point the south for that money.
40% of the border patrol is “processing” not patrolling. The BP couldn’t even get extra time authorized and they’ve been short-handed - been crippled by lack of funds and this administration. On flyovers, to show that the border security is “stronger than ever” per Obama, they had empty vehicles placed so it looked like more security was out there than the reality on the ground. Instead of having to cough up billions for dealing with the result of no security/enforcement, either spend that same money, or probably less, in stopping the problem before it gets started.
Another issue is Mexico - these kids are not Mexicans, but from other South American countries. They have to come THROUGH Mexico .... who seems to be turning a blind eye. Also, we can’t fly/bus them back to Mexico, because they aren’t Mexican - they need to be transported back to their home countries in South America. The parents are sending their kids KNOWING they’ll get care and not sent back - if the kids start coming back home pronto, this influx at the border will stop.
Use the $1 Billion (with a B) to send their arses back and some of the other illegals we have in Texas, Arizona and California.
No additional funding for ANYTHING except for the costs to safely transport the illegals back to their home countries.
ENFORCE THE IMMIGRATION LAWS!!
But these same will not appropriate a dime to impeach, remove and jail obama.
And you wonder why we in Maine want to secede.
Let more vets die and suffer without appointments and then start the funding of these illegals.
1 Billion isn’t even a starting point. All of these illegals will need a lot of expensive health care, so take those $’s from Veteran Care.
Then we will have to feed and cloth them and house them and provide classes in Spanish, in a year of less that cost will exceed 1 Billion.
Then, we will bring in their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and anyone claiming to be a relative. So start over with the health care, feeding, clothing and other social benefits costs. Costs that will continue as long as they are in this country sucking up these free benefits.
Let the DNC take care of the costs without our tax $’s.
Doesn’t that pesky Constitution specify that monetary appropriations originate in the House?
People who defended our country get crap....wetback whelps gets cash....sound right for this regime.
There are not “unaccompanied” children they are abandoned children. Their parents are at a minimum guilty of child endangerment.
RE: And you wonder why we in Maine want to secede.
Can a state that continues to vote for Susan Collins and voted for Obama by a huge 16% margin really want to secede?
Those kids are coming her because their parents are already here because Obama has not deported them! This is nothing but a push to get sympathy for AMNESTY.
When the left began to kill millions of American babies
They didn’t think of the huge hole left in our country
And it’s future. They are now pushing kid replacements
over the southern border to fill the need
For the humans they killed. Aborting millions
has consequences. You are now watching how
liberals fix the problem.
I wish you all the worst. May misfortune of every kind, intense and horrible, heinous in nature, befall you and all that you support and do. I hope it's awful.
