Congress scrambles to agree on emergency border bill as White House, liberal Dems clash
Fox News ^ | June 25, 2019 | Adam Shaw

A bill to provide $4.5 billion in emergency funding for the escalating humanitarian crisis at the border was on the rocks Tuesday as the White House threatened to veto over restrictions that would "hamstring" immigration enforcement -- and liberal Democrats complained the bill did not go far enough to rein in the administration's efforts on that front.

Both the House and the Senate are scrambling to vote on funding ahead of the July 4 recess, amid reports of poor living conditions in government shelters and even deaths of child migrants as growing migrant flows flood across the border.

More than 144,000 migrants were encountered or apprehended at the border in May, many of them unaccompanied minors or family units, severely complicating efforts to house or deport them. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) says the money to address humanitarian concerns at the border and in detention facilities runs out at the end of the month.

We don’t need “shelters”, just stop them at the border and don’t let them in.

That is why we need a wall right away.

Why are the Dems pushing a $4.5B emergency funding bill to solve a manufactured fake emergency crisis?

This! Why we let them cross the border in the first place is simply mind boggling.

Career politicians cannot resolve problems.

They can identify them. They can talk about them. But they cannot resolve them.

They are afraid that if they resolve a problem, they will be out of a job.

The Democrats are the most destructive force to attack the USA since the British burned the Whitehouse.

What crisis? I thought the Dems said Trump is manufacturing a crisis that didn’t exist. I saw that on CNN.

What “liberal” Democrats? they’re all to the left of FDR these days. And that is far left.

I think that was Pres. Trump’s plan all along.

Now, the media can’t unload on him as a Fascist* because it was brought on by democrat FAILURE.

Bingo.

We are now sending TSA agents to the border. Will they be used to provide a comfortable, risk-free welcome, or to prevent further illegal entries? Is any growth in the number of aliens the result of the Mexican army herding migrants north?

Every single day we ignore the law regarding orderly immigration is a day of measurably NOT MAGA!

Trump's only defense to taking a strong position on the border may be a reasonable fear that a sufficient number of R senators would join in convicting him on baseless Dem impeachment charges.

We certainly don’t need more immigration judges. Simply close the border to illegal immigration.

Communists Democrats and most RINOs never had the Country in mind but only thing they want is their pockets filled and a permanent job.

Amen to that.

Left unchecked, they will destroy the United States of America.

They’ve already done terrible damage to her.

Yes, they have. But it took Bush’s pushing through the USSC of Gonzales v Raich to blow down the remaining barriers to central govt. A Republican put paid to the Republic. Welcome to the nation-state.
