PELOSI FAILS TO PASS BORDER CONTROL FUNDING AFTER PRES TRUMP GAVE 2WK DEPORTATION EXTENSION: SENATE PASSES

Posted on June 27, 2019


Breitbart: “Wednesday afternoon the Senate debated H. R. 3401, also known as the Border Supplemental Appropriation Act, which sought to prevent the lapse of federal funding for border control agencies, especially those dealing with unaccompanied migrant children. The bill, which only made it to the Senate after Pelosi was forced to compromise with more progressive members of her caucus on Tuesday, failed by a vote of 37 to 55.”

“Pelosi’s compromises likely doomed the bill from getting bipartisan support in the Senate. To the chagrin of many, the Speaker allowed progressives to include a provision in the bill requiring private detention facilities along the southern border to meet a set of conditions within six months or risk losing federal funding. Pelosi also acquiesced to demands from progressives like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) that the final bill not include additional funding for more detention beds or overtime compensation for ICE officers.
The House version was also controversial because it limited information sharing between the Departments of Homeland Security and Health and Human services regarding unaccompanied migrant children. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) lambasted that provision in a fiery speech on Tuesday, saying it would only benefit drug cartels that engage in human trafficking.”

Fox: “The Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly approved a bipartisan $4.5 billion bill to combat the escalating humanitarian crisis on the southern border, moments after rejecting a House version over its restrictions on enforcement efforts — setting up a race to reconcile the two measures before Congress leaves town.”

The Senate bill passed 84-8.

Pres Trump Twitter: “At the request of Democrats, I have delayed the Illegal Immigration Removal Process (Deportation) for two weeks to see if the Democrats and Republicans can get together and work out a solution to the Asylum and Loophole problems at the Southern Border. If not, Deportations start!”

Daily Mail: “Nancy Pelosi called Trump and asked him to hold off planned raids by ICE just one day before the president announced a two-week delay…”
