Congress Finally Passes Bipartisan Border Funding Bill, After Democrats Initially Blocked the Vote 81 Times!

The Democrats’ obstructionist tactics are worsening the national emergency at the border.

Published

The Democratic Party has blamed President Donald Trump for the border crisis they once denied, calling substandard detention facilities “concentration camps” because they are underfunded and unable to handle the influx of third-world migrants.

However, the Democrats have blocked emergency border funding legislation today an incredible 81 times, before House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) finally capitulated and allowed the bill to be voted upon.

Here is one example of the Democratic Party’s obstruction as they continue to use migrants as pawns in their game for control:

The House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) took Democrats to task over their unwillingness to keep America safe:

“I think everybody in this body knows that that Senate bill will pass,” McCarthy said on the House floor before the display took place.

“You do not have to worry about what the outcome will be, the leader of the Senate has already said what will happen. Because I will promise you this, on this side of the aisle, we will stay here until this is done. We will not leave. And we will stand with the bipartisan vote in the Senate,” he added.

The pressure from Republicans eventually worked, as the legislation was ultimately passed in the House by a 305-102 vote. It had previously passed in the Senate by an 84-8 margin.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” she wrote.

“As we pass the Senate bill, we will do so with a Battle Cry as to how we go forward to protect children in a way that truly honors their dignity and worth,” Pelosi added.

The appropriation includes 4.6 billion in additional funds, with the Department of Defense and Immigration and Customs Enforcement getting some of the money authorized by the legislation, much to the chagrin of certain radical Democrats.

Most of the money will go to the the Department of Health and Human Services for the Office of Refugee Resettlement so detainment facilities can be brought up to par.

President Trump is pleased with the developments. He had called for the House to pass the legislation earlier in the day.

“It’s very far along and I believe the House is going to be getting together, hopefully they can get something done. It’s humanitarian aid, it’s very important,” he said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is pledging to bring up a tentative Supreme Court nominee for confirmation before the November election.

President Trump’s nominee will receive a vote on the floor of the United States Senate.

McConnell dispelled notions that the situation was similar to the 2016 blocked nomination of Merrick Garland, citing the Republican Majority in the Senate at the time. The President’s party controls the Senate this time around, and it increased its electoral majority in the 2018 election.

Liberally-inclined Republican Senators such as Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, and Susan Collins could prove integral to confirming a SCOTUS nominee. The latter two have already stated that they wouldn’t vote to confirm a new justice during a presidential election season, even if the President’s party controlled the Senate.

Chuck Schumer is already pledging to block a new SCOTUS confirmation “until we have a new President,” suggesting he’s seeking to block Trump from even making a new SCOTUS appointment during his potential second term.

This Supreme Court battle could be one for the ages.
