Interim Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith refused to commit to fully funding the border wall and to defunding Planned Parenthood when approached by a reporter on Capitol Hill ahead of a recent spending vote.
In an exclusive video obtained by Big League Politics, former Democrat Hyde-Smith was asked whether she would commit to fully fund the border wall.
Hyde-Smith refused to answer.
Hyde-Smith was also asked to explain why she refused to vocally push for full funding of the wall and also refused to defund Planned Parenthood, which she voted to fund on September 18th of this year.
Trump: ‘Ridiculous’ Senate Spending Bill Must Pay for Border Wall
President Trump called the Senate’s vote for a bill without funding for a border wall “ridiculous.”
“I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms? Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security,” he said in a tweet on Thursday morning.
Trump made the comments two days after Cindy Hyde-Smith and the Senate passed a spending bill called a smaller “ominibus” that funded Planned Parenthood and did not include border wall funding.
A Washington Post report cleared it up for those who may have missed the vote. “Senate passes defense and health spending bill, tries to delay border-wall fight to after midterms,” the paper reported with a headline.
Without Help from Republicans in Congress, Trump Fights Abortion on his own
On the Senate’s funding of abortion, Politifact, a liberal news site that usually defends abortion rights, almost celebrates that the spending bill continues to fund Planned Parenthood.
Freedom Caucus Chair Jim Jordan rightly decried the bill’s funding of abortion.
Citing Congress’s failure to lead on abortion, a coalition of pro-life groups even called on President Trump to veto the the spending minibus legislation passed by the Senate.
“Since Congress will not lead, we are asking you to do so,” the groups implored Trump in a letter released after the Senate approved abortion funding.
“The current spending bill from Congress includes no provisions to get taxpayers out of the abortion business and was purposefully drafted to exclude some of your other critical priorities,” they wrote, citing the border wall.
The letter was signed by the pro-life groups Heartbeat International, Concerned Women for America, American Legislative Action Committee, March for Life, Students for Life, and Live Action.
The pro-life groups’ call for a veto echoes disgust for Republican leadership in Congress held by anti-abortion activists that Planned Parenthood continues to get federal funding despite Republican control of Congress.
Without help from Republican leadership in the Senate, and including southern Senators representing deep red states like Cindy Hyde-Smith, President Trump has had to make a go of protecting lives of the unborn alone.
Even without the help of Congress, the Trump administration has accomplished much in terms of rolling back federal involvement in abortion, most notably by appointing of conservative judges to federal courts.
Trump’s successes in protecting life have come almost –if not exclusively — from his executive branch, and not from Congress.

REPORTER: Hey, good afternoon Senator. Will you commit to fully fund the wall.
REPORTER: It is hot. So there’s a vote coming up for the budget. Are you going to commit to fully fund the wall? You’re not going to commit to fully fund the wall? So you’re going to vote to fund Planned Parenthood, but you’re not gonna vote to fully fund the wall.
Will you tell Mitch to fund the wall? Will you tell him loudly? Will you tell Mitch McConnell loudly to fully fund the wall?
Customs and Border Patrol Arrest 36 Camouflaged Illegal Aliens at Open Borders Organization’s Smuggling Camp
Illegal immigration is back on.
Customs and Border Patrol arrested more than three dozen illegal immigrants at a smuggling camp operated by a left-wing open borders organization in Arizona on Friday night, possibly signaling that illegal immigration is back on after the coronavirus halted human smuggling and trafficking operations at the U.S-Mexico border.
CBP Tucson Sector Chief Roy Villareal recounted the operation, which was executed on a camp operated by the ‘No More Deaths’ open borders group, which coordinates and assists in dangerous border crossings on the part of illegal aliens in southern Arizona. CBP executed a federal search warrant on the camp in Aricava, Arizona, after investigating the criminal activity associated with the facility.

“On July 31, 2020, Border Patrol agents from the Tucson Border Patrol Sector, with support from CBP Air and Marine Operation’s Tucson Air Branch executed a federal search warrant on the No More Deaths camp near Arivaca, Arizona. Upon entry, over three dozen Illegal border crossers were found within the camp,” revealed CBP in a statement to News 4 Tucson.
The group that was arrested may have been one of the biggest detained by CBP since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, which largely halted illegal immigration. The capture of larger groups of illegal immigrants in recent days and weeks may signal that large-scale human smuggling operations may be back on after a hiatus.
Chief Villareal shared CBP imagery revealing that the group formation of illegal aliens traveled directly to the No More Deaths camp in Aricava, suggesting a degree of coordination between the open borders group and the border crossers.

Federal authorities have pointed to the left-wing camp as a tool utilized by drug smugglers and criminals seeking to infiltrate the United States for years, having dismantled the camp through court order before.
Law enforcement operations occur in the area around the No More Deaths camp regularly as this is a key smuggling route for both undocumented migrants and drug traffickers.

No More Deaths continues to incentivize highly dangerous border crossings in the Sonoran Desert in the thick of the Arizona summer, endangering the lives of law enforcement, the public, and unauthorized migrants who make the treacherous journey with the promise of assistance.
