Posted on 07/31/2014 5:18:12 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
A bill to fund border security blew up in House Speaker John Boehner's face on Thursday, leaving Republicans in disarray and struggling to reconcile Tea Party demands with the need to deal with a humanitarian crisis on the southwestern border with Mexico.
Tea Party-backed Senator Ted Cruz of Texas had his fingerprints all over Thursday's debacle for Boehner. Cruz, a potential 2016 presidential contender, had lobbied his House Republican colleagues to reject the legislation on the grounds that it was too timid.
Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski tried to contrast her party's approach to that of Republicans when, during Thursday's floor debate, she said she had spoken to a 15-year-old girl whose parents were killed in gang violence in Honduras.
"You're going to send her back?" Mikulski asked.

The MSM has treated critical news events like a sports event for decades now.
You can look up Boehner, Scalise, McHenry, Wagner, Schock and others views on immigration and contrast them with Sessions, Steve King, Cruz, Vitter, Fleming, Mo Brooks and others.
“struggling to reconcile Tea Party demands with the need to deal with a humanitarian crisis “
What humanitarian crisis?
The one Obama created?
Drop the illegals off at the Mexican embassies, prevent them from leaving the embassies except to head back to where they came from.
And why is it our responsibility to “deal” with them?
Send them all the heck home!
“You’re going to send her back?” Mikulski asked.
You are damned right we are.
Anyone believe the girl with the dead parents is real? Another fake story to promote the agenda.
Pray America wakes up
The Battle is now. Please call . fax email and yell outside in the street. That sorry Boehner/cornyn/rove/bush bunch would sell you for a nickle to get power . Stop them — Halt them. Your congressman must hear from thousands tonight!! They are buying votes to give obama a $ BILLION for his contrived “Crises”. GET THESE ILLEGALS ALIENS OUT OF OUR COUNTRY NOW!! ( only 20% are under 15 and 2% of those are sex trafficked) ((% are returnable NOW!! And get off this no impeachment crap! Why take this off the table?
good. i wish it had literally blown up in his clown kabuki face.
RINO Peter King speaks out for 0bama and the RATS, nothing new about that.
Go Ted Cruz and Conservatives!
she rips us, and not honduras.

You bet. Not my problem.
” - - - Our republic suffers when the media doesn’t do its job. - - - “
Yup. That is why we have to step up a little more, here on Free Republic!
The crisis is not immigration, the crisis is our government. It must be replaced if the nation is to survive.
“Drop the illegals off at the Mexican embassies,”
The governors of the states where illegals were dumped should pack Greyhound buses with them and instruct the chaperon on each bus to leave them on the sidewalk in front of the White House.
The buses drive away, the chaperon goes to gate and tells the guard, “We brought your problem back to you.”
Instead, we’re treating them like they won game shows.
Hey .... what do you get when you reward bad behavior?
Obama and more illegals!
They sent that GOP Rep Salmon out on Fox News this morning to push the bill. Two times he said it would send the national guard to the border. If I didn’t happen to have read the letter Sessions sent around yesterday I would not have known it was an outright lie. The bill gives the President the authority to send the guard to the border if he wants to. We all know he will never do it.
Yep, their meme is “attack Ted Cruz and to h=== with the facts!”.
An informative report:
... The House GOP initially thought it would be voting on language identical to that contained in a pair of bills sponsored by Republicans Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rep. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee that would prevent the government from spending any more money on the DACA program. The text of Blackburns bill, however, was quietly changed on Wednesday night to only prohibit the government from issuing guidance, memorandums, policies, or other similar instruments relating to the initiative...”
IE: Leadership lied and that’s why the bill died.
“The crisis is not immigration, the crisis is our government. It must be replaced if the nation is to survive.”
That’s a fact.
We have a predatory government taking advantage of lunacy by our government to foist criminals and undesirables off on Zero.
Flipside, the solution is as Tumblin and I said, move the problem to the source.
Drop them off in Pelosi’s place, Obamahut central, etc.
Make them deal with it up close and personal.
