July 10, 2014, 10:37 am McConnell: Obama wants blank check for border crisis By Ramsey Cox
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Republicans are looking at President Obamas $3.7 billion proposal to address the influx of unaccompanied child immigrants, but they wont give him a blank check.
This is a real crisis. So were taking a hard look at the proposal the president sent over, McConnell said on the Senate floor Thursday. What he appears to be asking for is a blank check one that would allow him to sustain his current failed policy.
Lawmakers have grown increasingly concerned about the thousands of unaccompanied minors from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala that have been detained by the border patrol along the U.S.-Mexico border. The ongoing humanitarian crisis at the border seems to be getting worse by the day, McConnell said. Large numbers of foreign nationals are unlawfully entering our country, and its mainly due to the administrations failure to enforce immigration laws and secure the border.
Republicans have blamed the increase in minors crossing the border on Obamas executive order to defer the deportation of illegal immigrant children who were brought to the United States by their parents, known as Dreamers. New children entering the country would not be eligible for deferred action and the White House has said most of them will be deported.
Earlier this week, the White House asked Congress for $3.7 billion to temporarily house and return the children to their countries.
On Wednesday night, Obama was in Texas but said he wouldnt visit the border for a photo op. He called on Congress to act quickly.
And ol Mitch will accommodate him.....
remember that old asshole mitch at CPAC this year.
crying and begging and PROMISING he would be a REAL conservative if he became senate leader.
get lost mitch, you need to crawl in a hole
Howsabout using some billions of those rounds of gummint ammo??
Oughta eliminate SOME of the mess, anyways.
Meanwhile the vets get screwed for healthcare.
Paying for future rat votes with our money
Shut up, Geritol, turkey neck loser.
And they’ll give him 1.7 bllion instead of 3.5 and explain to us how they stood up to him/
McConnell voted for cloture on Amnesty and he didn’t have to but he knew then the dems would pass Amnesty on a simple majority while he himself went on to vote against so that he could snooker the voters back home.
Real slick weasel this McConnell. He’d make a good democrat when we have get the opportunity to kick his sorry *ss out of the GOP. But wait, he’s already a democrat, with an ‘R-KY’ by his name.
So Mitch your buddy Obama wants 3.7M for the amnesty surge. And whatchoo gonna do Monsieur Mitch? You want Amnesty, we know it. Chamber of Crony Commerce has bought you off.
My guess is this duplicitous weasel settles for about 2B for the first round of funding.
he is a hole
Obama wants 3.7 billion.
Meanwhile, the USS Olympia from the Spanish American war, a priceless relic, is about to be sunk for want of 10 million.
The museum is no longer able to fund the preservation costs for Olympia. Historic steel-hulled ships should be dry-docked for maintenance every 20 years, but she has been in the water continuously since 1945. Essential repairs are estimated at $10 million. Plans to scuttle Olympia, making her into an artificial reef, are under consideration.
Take care of America first A-hole, not a bunch of ingrate Mexicans, Guatemalans, Palestinians, and Hondurans.
Just like that promise that if you just pay a few "processing fees" all the wealth of some fictional African leader will be yours. Sure.
Shut up and give to him McConnel. You’ve given him one for everything else....why not this?
They will give Obama whatever he asks for and then whine that Obama wants more. Which they will give him when it is requested.
BOHICA. Barry’s biotch Miotch.
“Obama wants blank check for border crisis”?
“Obama wants blank check from congress to help him destroy America. And thus far Boehner and company are giving it to him.
