Before one cent is spent, Congress needs to investigate how and why these tens-of-thousands of young people got to the border.
Most news reports indicate they are NOT from Mexico. So, how did they get through Mexico to the US?
In previous years, the number of unaccompanied young were less than 4,000 per year.
All of the sudden we have somewhere between 60,000 and 90,000 crossing the border. That number is expected to be around 150,000 by the end of the year. Since these ‘kids’ are apparently successful in getting to the US and staying, we might expect an additional 250,000 to be encouraged to come next year.
How did this problem get to be such a problem? No one ever heard of this a month ago.
It sounds as if some shyster work is at hand.
This significance of this list (thanks for posting it) highlights the importance of all of the Senate races this year. With Thad Cochran acting madder than a March Hare, a change in control of the Senate would mean that Senator Shelby from Alabama would become the Chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee. That would represent quite a change in the tone and behavior of that committee.
In all fairness we should pay Southwest for the return flight with no passengers.
There was a “Killer Kids” show about a couple that came here illegally from Central America and left their son at home. They are still here and had two more children. Finally they paid to have the son they left behind join them here. He promptly kills his sister, saying that he just didn’t fit in here and it wasn’t fair that she had it better than him.
You racist bastards need to pay your fair share. :)
Let the senate pass it, then let the house gut the bill and replace it with one that appropriates funds to SEND THEM ALL HOME!
Hadn’t thought about it that way...good point.
appropriation bills must originate in the House
Boehner will NEVER do that. Boehner is working for Obama, not against him.
And Obama has managed to turn the Border Patrol into nurses, baby sitters and nannies.
The Border Patrol—responsible for securing our southwestern border—has been transformed into the Welcome Wagon.
Deport ALL their asses. Now !
Shut down the funding...REDUCE by $1bil with instructions to DHS to stop the silly, treasonous behavior or their budget will be reduced by 25% annually.
No dice. We don't negotiate with terrorists.
Ask the UN to fund this.
No tiene dinero.
In fact, since ALL appropriations must originate in the house of reprehensibles, I would argue that the mere existence of senate 'appropriators' is unconstitutional.
No I don’t.
I have a solution. It’s rather final.
“...not one dime until the Marine is released from Mexico and then not until Mexico fixes its own country..”
Good start. Meter’s ‘bout run out on the time it will take a generation or so to fix Mexico. Best bet is for their embassy to pack their trash and leave. Same goes for countries in this intentional, coordinated effort and arguably warlike effort to destabilize the United States. And make no mistake,”somebody” planned this, mess like this doesn’t happen. Our returning personnel can wave at their counterparts at the airports.
I have an idea.
How about we adopt these Dream children into good, stable Christian homes.
It looks like many of them will be virtual orphans and adoption would solve several problems including the left's desire to indoctrinate them into leftist thinking.
Can you imagine hundreds of thousands of conservative children growing up and voting?
Just a thought.
Remember the victory we had with Cantor's recent failure & Conservative Brat's big win in Virginia. Brat WON because We the People are FED UP and WE SHOW IT BY OUR VOTE. SCARE THESE POLITICIANS WITH THIS REMINDER. We're not going to take this takeover of our country lying down.
