Skip to comments.Top committee Republicans vote for border provision WORSE than amnesty
Posted on 07/26/2018 6:30:03 AM PDT by huldah1776
...Yesterday, the House Appropriations Committee, during a markup of the fiscal year 2019 DHS funding bill, voted to block the new USCIS guidance to properly interpret credible fear as fear of an individualized persecution by a government. As we noted before, this is the lynchpin of the entire border surge, and unless we properly interpret the law as written, the border surge, drugs, gangs, and all of the fiscal and social ills that come with them will never stop. Yet Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., yes, that Kevin Yoder gave his support to this Democrat amendment, and it passed by voice vote.
Yoder, [chair] Homeland Security subcommittee, should be a warrior for the American people and law enforcement. Instead, he is a voice for illegal immigrants. He inserted numerous amendments tying the hands of DHS and giving illegals more rights. He inserted language mandating more free phone calls for illegals and more access to facilities by members of Congress so they can further agitate and hamper our brave agents.
The entire tenor of the markup was a violation of the social compact. Its as if the ill effects of this border surge on America from the drugs and gangs to the crushing costs and crime didnt matter. He voted to push forward with an investigation of separating families when we know the entire issue is built on a lie and that many of these families self-separate.
snip It allows anyone to come here and simply claim a bogus fear. Then we are forced to deal with their children, release them, go through endless court cases, and lose control of our country. It is now clear that RINOs like Yoder not only want amnesty for those already here but want to ensure that the invasion continues in perpetuity.

Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.
These damn fool Republicans are trying like Hell to lose the mid-terms.
Read the last couple of paragraphs.
WTF? So, they are simply going to change the stipulations under which we would grant asylum? Why not just make it “Professes affinity for tortillas”?

Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does
If by MUST you mean that getting rid of the Bush League is something that must be accomplished or else the Republic will die, you are spot on.
If by MUST you mean that there is a necessary sequence of events and that the Bush League will pass away, I think you are wrong. I think that the best efforts must be made to get rid of the Bush League, but even that cannot be guaranteed anything like success.
That said, I’m betting you met the former, though I initially read the later.
There was a great comment on a thread yesterday about the exhumation of one of the not-quite-fully-intact skeleton of one of Virginia’s first politicians. If the head was missing, he was a Democrat; if the spine was missing, he was a Republican
This is NUTZ!
“Bush League Republicans MUST become extinct before the Republic does.”
Not just those aligned with the Bushes, but any who think of themselves as smarter than the public they are supposed to serve. To be honest, politicians and specifically elected politicians need to see themselves as messengers - sent to deliver the message of what those who put them in office want. I don’t care about their personal opinions, and don’t want those opinions impacting their carrying out what they were elected to do. I don’t need someone in government to ‘lead’ me. I want them to follow what we the voters told them to do - and then shut the hell up.
The House will go regressive and Trump can rule by EO the way the usurper did.
And please dont start whining. You have to clear out the rot if you want to build a strong foundation. Do your duty and vote out the traitor Republicans and then vote in a true Trump slate in 2020.
Yoder is in trouble:
We need to get rid of every one of them.
There should be a strong, solid right-wing challenger in every one of their primaries. Replacing RINOs is the only way we will save the Republic.
Guess his fat ag and meat packer donors own Rep. Yoder. If I were a KS voter, he would be hearing why he forfeited my vote in that illegal alien-rights vote yesterday.
These BS reasons for letting people come here (and then vote illegally and add to congressional districts) have got to stop.
Not to mention the crimes, and drag on the welfare and school systems.
Once again, the GOP is working hard to lose the House in November so they can sit back in the comfy chairs as the minority and watch the House impeach President Trump? Do we actually have to start hanging deep state members to stop the soft coup?
And this is why there is no reason to vote for 90% of incumbent Republicans this fall. They are useless and now worse then the regressives.
The RINO’s and their political masters (i.e., big doners) want cheap labor and more consumers. They side with the Rats on immigration because its what the Chamber of Commerce and the Business Roundtable want. They don’t care what social damage it does to the country.
Yoder. That’s a “plain people” name. PLAIN, as in Amish, or Mennonite or other pacifists. In wartime they are consciencious objectors. At home, apparently, if their daughter was being raped they would do no harm to the criminal. Don’t expect him to guard our borders. JMHO.
“It gets worse. The committee also passed an amendment codifying Obamas amnesty, preventing deportations of all individuals illegally granted amnesty by Obama. Rather than defunding DACA, it defunds enforcement! And of course, no defunding of sanctuary cities.”
Then it's time for members of the Chamber of Commerce and Business Roundtable open up their neighborhoods as designated sanctuary areas.
