AZBD Note: This is a bill that should have been past a few years ago. It would stop Obama’s lawlessness. Unfortunately the Senate would never pass it and even if they did Barry would veto it. Both the House and the Senate have too many America Haters to be able to override a veto. Boner only allowed this bill to be voted on now that it doesn’t matter because the Senate is no longer in session.
WASHINGTON, D.C. — House Republicans passed a border supplemental bill Friday night.
The 223 – 189 vote came after an initial attempt at a border supplement failed to make it to the floor Thursday due to lack of support.
Late-night meetings and tweaks to the original bills found members emerging from a Friday morning House GOP conference meeting expressing optimism about the prospects of passing a supplemental border bill to help alleviate the ongoing crisis of unaccompanied minors and family units illegally crossing the southern border.
According to Fox News’ Chad Pergram, four Republicans voted “no” (Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY), Stephen Fincher (R-TN), Walter Jones (R-NC) and Paul Broun (R-GA) and one Democrat voted “yes” Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX).
A bill targeting President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is now set to be brought to the floor following the border supplement. Many Republicans have pointed to the presidents’ DACA program — which shields certain illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation — as inciting the flood of illegal immigration.
