House Passes Border Bill, Obama Says He'll Go It Alone

House Passes Border Bill, Obama Says He'll Go It Alone

House Republicans passed legislation late Friday to address the crisis on the U.S.-Mexico border by sending migrant youths back home without hearings, after winning over conservatives with tough new provisions that could lead to deporting more than half a million immigrants whom the Obama administration granted temporary work permits. President Barack Obama condemned the Republican action and said he'd act unilaterally, as best he could.

The $694 million spending bill to address the crisis at the border passed 223-189 late Friday, with only four Republicans voting "no" and one Democrat voting "yes." A vote on the second measure was expected later in the night.

A vote on a companion measure that would shut off a program created by Obama granting work permits to immigrants brought here illegally as kids. The second bill also seemed designed to prevent the more than 700,000 people who've already gotten work permits under the program from renewing them, ultimately making them subject to deportation.

President Barack Obama said of the legislation: "They're not even trying to solve the problem," the president

A dictator eventually has to face the consequences of his actions. Obama gets to blame the fiascos he’s created on the Republicans — for the time being.

The sad part of all this is we continue to gripe about his power grab but everyone appears powerless to stop him. Time for the States to bring suit directly against the US and demand the original jurisdiction of the Supreme Court on the basis that they are being “injured” and hence have standing.

They produced a bill which will fast track deportation of the criminal invaders. Seems to me they are, in fact, trying to solve the problem. Seems like the only one not trying to fix the problem is Resident Obama.

obama is a liar.

because they are not giving him exactly what he demands, they aren’t trying to solve the problem.

solving the problem would be sending these kids back to their families and securing the border. i know obama will not solve the problem.

House won’t do it. He’ll say they are trying to shut down the government and the media will support him.

Yes, that is a huge source of hate and discontent among the troops. I have a gut feeling that the Obungler will never be held accountable for anything, or at least not in this life.

That’s why we should dump all of the career GOP critters and put in those that are willing to do their constitutional duty.

*******************************************

It’s been an especially bad day for him .... not only did he not get the money he wanted so he could spend lots & do little on the border issue, the press corp(se) didn’t even ask him about his birthday plans:

“I thought that you guys were going to ask me how I was going to spend my birthday,” he said in exasperation as the conference broke into non-birthday questions. “What happened to the birthday thing?”

Two options:

It will never see the light of day in the senate.....and they knew it so it was all to appease the voters

It will go to the Senate and Harry Reid will attach an amnesty bill to it and send it back....and they knew that and wanted that

I no longer trust any of them and am on to their silly little games.

If Zero thinks a ‘message bill’ isn’t a good step, he’s crazy. We need a “new” message - to counter his message - of “fast and furious” immigration - something that Breitbart called out in 2012:

Time for Texas to secede from the union and have their own country back! I’d vote for that in a heartbeat!

Then declare war on Mexico and show these invaders they’re not welcome — plus if Obama refuses/prohibits military action you can snap Treason charges on him.
Or are you going to say that wouldn’t work? Because a *LOT* of people are pissed about the invaders and lack of action.

I don’t think there is ANYTHING the republicans can hand him to make him happy. He just wants to have something to whine about and an excuse to go it alone. He is mentally ill.

Doesn’t matter what ANYBODY does, King Barry is going to implement the laws HE believes in, and FAIL TO ENFORCE the ones he doesn’t. Talk of impeachment raises eyebrows??? Why??? It’s pretty clear why he deserves it.

He DID get his 3.7 billion, just not as lump sum.

The Republican 600 million is for the first two months. Obama’s 3.7 billion is for 15 months.

Do you think that in two months these spineless Republicans, most of whom want to give the Chamber of Commerce amnesty, are not going to give Obama the rest of his money?

Obama also saw the Israel-Hamas truce blow up right after it was signed. Guess he thought that truce would make him look good. Seems like every time he tries to lead, he looks more and more the fool.

“I have a gut feeling that the Obungler will never be held accountable for anything, or at least not in this life.”

It is beyond a gut feeling when it has been going on for years. Since it is already practically illegal to hold blacks (even mulattos) to any standard for anything, I don’t see that situation improving down the road until whites are a small minority in this country. At that point the Latinos and Asians that have inherited the US will tell it like it is in terms of the real legacy of Barack Hussein Obama; they see no reason to dance around the issue (no white guilt), and are amazed at how black Americans squander the affirmative action opportunities afforded them (including Obama himself, elected twice for being half black).

Yes. For what it’s worth, Boner did say that he wouldn’t let the latter happen. On official letterhead no less!

Yep, I was just trying to be a little diplomatic about it. I really did not say it as hard as I mean it.

Since it is already practically illegal to hold blacks (even mulattos) to any standard for anything, I don’t see that situation improving down the road until whites are a small minority in this country.

I will go one step beyond that. I think there are a certain number of slime bags, who have no intention of letting whites become a minority. They want us wiped out, like Hamas wants Israel wiped out. So far, I see no sign that anyone will put a stop to this, so they might succeed. Unfortunately, I think millions of whites will die on their knees, rather than on their feet. I hope I am wrong, but we shall see.

Read the two bills!!!!!

They were hand written in sweat & hope by the patriotic wing of the GOP.......this is the brainchild/baby of Senator Jeff Sessions and Ted Cruz.

It gives us exactly what we’ve been begging for!....what good folks stood on overpasses waving flags and holding signs......were asking for.

I don’t lose sleep over that; while whites may be targeted by ferals in isolated incidents, the low information population can clearly see where a lack of whites leads them. They know that they can’t run a family, never mind a town, county, or state.
