Skip to comments.Short of votes, House abandons border bill at last minute
Posted on 07/31/2014 11:19:34 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
The House abandoned efforts to pass a bill to deal with the surge in migrants on the southern U.S. border Thursday.
House Republicans, who had authored a plan to spend $659 million on humanitarian aid as well as additional border security and judges, failed to garner enough support among their rank and file to come up with the 218 votes needed for passage.
They plan to adjourn today until Sept. 8, which virtually guarantees no action on legislation until after the August recess.
Republicans had to pass the bill entirely on their own because no Democrats were likely to support the bill, because it included language to change a 2008 law so that federal officials could more quickly deport unaccompanied children who have come here by the tens of thousands from Central American nations.

The people are coming for you DC. We are coming. Ryan, Boner, McDonald, enablers,Demorats,marxists, statists, et al, we are coming for you. You will be removed by the scruffs of your next via the ballot box. We are coming for you.
Not completely. The HOR shouldn't be funding anything except one way tickets home for these invaders. Add to that they got here with the assistance of Mexico. The HOR should be funding a 10-mile DMZ...the northernmost 10 miles of Mexico.
The HOR only does things we demand because they face re-election every two years. No more, no less....just enough to get re elected.
Personally I'm a BIG fan of Trials and Hangings.
For now. Wait 6 years or so. No one will listen.
They need to be removed from power, first.
Then the positions of power need to be neutered so they can’t come back.
Then they need to be utterly shunned.

After some tar and feathers .....
Best start would be Lamar. Let's make that race another Cantor message. Whether you live in TN or not, help Carr. It can be done even though Lamar is recruiting Dems, again.
