Mitt Romney Votes With Democrats To Reopen Government Without Wall Funding



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.

President Trump Preparing New Executive Order to Rescind DACA Amnesty After SCOTUS Decision

SCOTUS threw out the last one on procedural grounds.



White House sources have indicated that President Donald Trump is planning on signing a new executive order to terminate President Obama’s DACA amnesty program this week.

The Supreme Court had thrown out an earlier executive order to terminate the program in a court ruling last month, terminating the federal drive to enforce American immigration laws on supposed procedural inadequacies.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows suggested that the President would soon sign a new executive order to terminate the amnesty program, while speaking on Fox and Friends on Monday morning. “Starting this week, you’ll see executive orders, you’ll see business that actually goes forward from the Oval Office when Congress doesn’t act.

The President has spoken openly of his intention to terminate DACA a second time after the Supreme Court’s arbitrary decision. The court’s ruling had established that the President has complete authority to terminate the amnesty for a selected population of almost a million illegal immigrants, expanded by President Obama without congressional approval in 2014.

The court’s own ruling will likely prevent the judicial branch from overthrowing a second DACA termination executive order, having admitted that the federal government has every right to terminate the program that was implemented on a whim.

Liberal billionaire oligarchs such as George Soros and Charles Koch continue to fund an influence campaign to maintain the amnesty order, hoping to secure a status quo of open borders and weak immigration laws with the hopes of delivering a broad pool of affordable labor for large businesses and the American elite.
