GOP Establisment: Congress Should Give Obama 'Blank Check' to Address Border Crisis
Breitbart ^ | July 12, 2014 | Tony Lee

Posted on 07/12/2014 1:28:47 PM PDT by lilyramone

While liberal activists keep pushing Democrats to make more concessions regarding the flood of illegal immigrant children across the border, GOP consultants in D.C. are suggesting that Republicans roll over and approve President Barack Obama's request for $3.7 billion without any concessions.

And they are doing so to liberal outlets like the Huffington Post.

Since only $400 million of those funds would actually go to strengthen border security, Republicans have been wary of giving the Obama administration a "blank check" without getting some concessions, like having National Guard troops on the border or changing a 2008 law that prevents the federal government from immediately deporting illegal immigrants who are not from Mexico or Canada.

They could do this by formally declaring War with Mexico.

Bill Whittle has a video where the German parliament did a similar thing for Hitler.

If you trusted him to stop it, yes. But he caused it. He is Cloward and Pivening us to death. Take away his money. Make him sit in an unairconditioned Whitehouse with no fuel in his cars or helicopters. If he wants to play golf make him do it on the Whitehouse lawn.

Is surprising no politician will admit to American Citizen that the government could deport three million or more of the invaders for 3.7 billion dollars.

Read this, then tell me that Republicans should give Obama a blank check.

The only way to solve this problem is to cut off all foreign aid to the countries which have been scheming with Obama to send their people into the US and blur our borders.

Looks like the GOP cronies have been offered a good chunk of that money. Never let a crisis go to waste.

If only $400M is going to Border Security where is the other $3.3B going? Obama’s golf hobby? Moochie’s vacation trips? Payoffs to turncoat congressional members?

No way in hell. He'll siphon off the $4 Billion, not send anyone back, not stem the flow of illegals and give the money to ACORN and hire more union border guards (who will change diapers).

out of the 3.7 err. 4.3 billion, 30%, or over 1 billion, becomes a slush fund. This is not something appealing in an administration known for it’s lack of transparency and outright lying. In the meantime, Biden has his hand out for money for a different ‘crisis.’

This administration has consistently operated under ‘blank check’ policy. Like a kid shopping online with his Daddy’s AmexBlack. Let’s not forget we just approved a few trillion not so long ago, and a few trillion before that.

It’s time to shred the card. No business plan, no solid objectives, no transparency, no money except than the $190 million for border patrol.

To paraphrase a tongue-in-cheek Hispanic broadcaster interviewed on Hannity, take the money from somewhere else, like the President’s travel budget.

None of that money will go to border security, even the $400M is probably a lie

FU GOP! We should be carpet bombing Mexico for aiding and abetting illegals. What a bunch of p*ssies we’ve become, allowing Hispanics to realize their dream of Aztlan. THIS IS WAR. This is black Obama using Hispanics to crush the white race!

Of course they are. Just like they suggested Republicans roll over and approve obamacare, and TARP, and the GM bailout, and every other worthless socialist idea obi-wan-idiot has come up with.

Which begs the question, what is it that makes them REPUBLICAN consultants, since they're no different than the Demorat consultants who are urging the same thing?

DC may claim to want to fix this border crisis with $3.7B. But truth be known that this will merely be a drop in the bucket on future taxes required to sustain the invaders. I hope no one around has any romantic notions of ‘Private Property’ in the near future. You know what ‘educational programs’ do to property taxes.

Maybe it’s time to declare war with Mexico, unless of course, No-brains-bama made a clandestine agreement with them to implement this Guatemalan “share the love” thing; then, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?. It does seem, though, that the 2 countries to our south arranged this program assuming that we would cave in and agree to it. Perhaps this is why Dim Bulb refuses to do anything about deporting the invaders. THIS STILL PISSES ME OFF BIG-TIME.

The States could do it on their own under Article 1, Section 10 of the US Constitution -

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress...engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

Rick Perry should call up the National Guard and send them fully armed to the border. He should force O’Bastard to federalize the Guard and call them back. Then any who may be in doubt would see that Obama owns this disaster. Damn him to hell...I am beginning to think our military needs to step in and remove the traitorous cretin.
