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.
Watch the video below to watch Cindy Hyde-Smith refuse to commit to funding the border wall, while avoiding her intention to vote to fund Planned Parenthood.
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?

President Trump is Deporting Unaccompanied Illegal Alien Minors to Prevent Spread of Coronavirus
Left-wing groups are agitating to stop the President from deporting these illegals.
President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.
The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.
“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.
Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.
“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”
Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”
During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.
“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.
“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.
The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.
“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.
Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
