House Democrats will be passing bills in vain when they re-convene in the new Congress Thursday. The Senate is not going to consider any of the Democrats’ bills, because the planned Democrat bills do not fund President Donald Trump’s proposed southern border Wall.
The Pelosi-led Democrats are reportedly introducing “a package of bills” on Monday, and then planning to vote on those bills Thursday when the new Congress comes in. The bills aim to end the government shutdown without addressing the $5 billion Wall that is not yet standing on our southern border.
McConnell spokesman Donald Stewart poured cold water all over the Democrat delusions, stating, “It’s simple: The Senate is not going to send something to the president that he won’t sign.”
The Democrats have been extra sneaky in their attempts to try to work around President Donald Trump, because Nancy Pelosi, 78, is trying to return to the House speakership but she probably won’t be able to do it if she capitulates on the Wall issue. Democrats have been called out for their sneakiness, so now they are trying to take their strategy to the mainstream press.
Their strategy is not going to fly, so long as Senate Republicans have anything to say about it. And they do, because they have the majority in the Senate.
Democrat congresswoman Sheila Jackson-Lee quietly introduced a bill called the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act.”
The bill, with a title that means the exact opposite of what it proposes, was introduced on December 19 and now sits in the House Judiciary and Homeland Security committees.
Here is the text of the bill:
SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.
This Act may be cited as the “Protect American Taxpayers and Secure Border Act”.
SEC. 2. PROHIBITIONS AND REQUIREMENTS RELATING TO BORDER SECURITY.
(a) In General.—No taxpayer funds may be obligated or expended to build a wall or barrier intended to impede travel between Mexico and the United States.
(b) Foreign Payment Required.—Any wall or barrier described in subsection (a) that is proposed to be built shall be paid for using funds provided by the Government of Mexico.
(c) Securing The Southern Border.—The Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to secure the southern border by making maximum effective utilization of technology and improved training of U.S. Custom and Border Protection agents and officers.
(d) Increase In Immigration Judges.—The Attorney General may appoint 100 additional immigration judges in addition to immigration judges currently serving as of the date of the enactment of this Act.
(e) Humanitarian Assistance.—The Secretary of Homeland Security shall take such actions as may be necessary to ensure that humanitarian assistance is provided to immigrants, refugees, and other displaced persons who are in need of medical assistance and aid to sustain health and life.”
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
