Mitt Romney Votes With Democrats Against Wall

Freshman Utah Senator Mitt Romney was one of six Republicans to vote with Senate Democrats to end the partial government shutdown without the $5.7 billion President Donald J. Trump requested to fund the U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Mitt Romney joined Republican Senators Lamar Alexander, Susan Collins, Cory Gardner, Johnny Isakson, Lisa Murkowski, together making up the anti-Trump wing of the Republican held Senate, in an ill-fated attempt to end the partial government shutdown on Thursday afternoon.

Even with the failed two time presidential candidate’s vote, the Democrat plan failed to reach the 60 votes required to pass. The partial government shutdown will continue, as both Democrats and Republicans face increasing pressure to come to the table and reach a deal.

Many consider this vote to solidify Romney’s position in the Senate as a member of the #NeverTrump wing of the Republican Party.

This latest vote may also represent another one of Romney’s infamous flip flops, after the freshman came out in support of President Trump’s border wall earlier this month.

Big League Politics reported on January 2:

Utah’s incoming senator Mitt Romney came out in favor of President Donald Trump’s border wall after the president and the president’s supporters expressed their extreme displeasure with Romney’s criticism of Trump.

“I would vote for the border wall. That’s been part of my platform for many, many years. I think we should have a border wall on our southern border…That’s necessary but insufficient,” Romney said in his interview Thursday with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

President Trump pressured Romney to support border security on Twitter.

As the shutdown continues with no end in sight, Republicans willing to acquiesce to Democrats’ demands may come under increasing scrutiny.

LOL: Ignorant Blue Checks on Twitter Get Confused After President Trump’s Remark That ‘Coyotes’ are Smuggling Children Across the Border

These people know nothing that is true.

After President Donald Trump remarked that “coyotes” are smuggling children across the U.S. southern border in yesterday’s presidential debate, verified liberals on Twitter demonstrated their extreme ignorance when it comes to the immigration issue.

Some of the low lights from these clueless Democrats can be seen here:

Alleged high school shooting victim and gun control spokesman David Hogg showed his lack of basic intelligence on the issue as well:

The incredible ignorance from the Left on the true nature of illegal immigration has resulted in their support for some of the most ghastly and inhumane policies imaginable.

Big League Politics reported on how CBS News painted human traffickers in a positive light because they were flooding the border as part of a planned and well-financed migrant caravan last year:

The Darién Gap, a undeveloped jungle swampland connecting North and South America at the border of Panama and Colombia, is said to be one of the most dangerous places in the Americas. It’s largely overrun by human smugglers, paramilitary organizations, and drug traffickers, and the U.S State Department advises Americans not to travel to the region.

The region’s criminal reputation didn’t stop CBS News from running a sympathetic profile of some of the human smugglers operating in the area on Saturday. CBS’s portrayal of a ‘coyote’ named Emerson Gonzalez Jimenez was unquestioning of his claims that he was offering a generous service to the migrants who sought passage through the Darien Gap to Panama, usually on the way to the United States.

Colombians, Venezuelans, Haitians and even individuals from Asia or Africa commonly hire the services of the smugglers to navigate through the dangerous region. It’s not uncommon for migrants to die during the often-perilous journey, as the Gap poses a threat on account of its wild nature and the criminals known to operate within it.

A Marxist terrorist organization known as FARC, the Spanish-language synonym for Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, has extensively operated in the area. FARC has trafficked and sold a great deal of cocaine destined for the United States, in addition to waging a violent insurgency against the government of Colombia.

The crossing of often helpless and penniless migrants through the Darién Gap poses a humanitarian concern. Migrants are largely powerless at the hands of the coyotes guiding them, and can be easily exploited. Female migrants are often raped or forced into prostitution by smugglers.

Closing the borders would not only keep Americans safe, but it would also stop human trafficking networks from smuggling exploited children across the border.
