Washington Yellowskins aka establishment GOPers in the House capitulate approve clean DHS bill letting Obama have his illegal amnesty

It’s not a coincidence that this vote was taken while the world’s attention was on Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech in front of Congress. But, the American people know who the cowards are in Washington—the gutless GOP establishment Republicans who have no honor, no guts, no manhood whatsoever! They should be ashamed of themselves for the charade of passing themselves off as the opposition to Democrats. They’re no such thing but partners with the Dems on a hustle to deceive the American people.

Fox News reports the House voted Tuesday to fund the Homeland Security Department through the end of the budget year, ending a protracted standoff that centered on objections to President Obama’s controversial immigration actions.
The House voted 257-167 for the legislation, sending it to Obama’s desk. The final legislation includes no immigration provisions, and was carried over the finish line with mostly Democratic votes.

“On behalf of the approximately 225,000 men and women of the Department of Homeland Security, we thank those in Congress — Democrats and Republicans — who voted for this bill and, in particular, those in Congress who showed the leadership necessary to get the job done,” DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement Tuesday afternoon.

The result is a victory for the Obama administration. Republicans had tried to use the DHS funding bill as the vehicle to reverse Obama’s immigration executive actions. But Democrats repeatedly blocked the move, insisting they pass the spending bill with no riders attached.

House Speaker John Boehner, faced with diminishing options, earlier in the day told fellow Republican lawmakers he would drop the immigration demands.

“I am as outraged and frustrated as you at the lawless and unconstitutional actions of this president,” Boehner told his caucus on Tuesday morning, according to a source.

But he said he believed the decision to vote on a “clean” bill, “considering where we are — is the right one for this team, and the right one for this country.”

Boehner’s move could lead to a backlash in the party, especially since House GOP leaders repeatedly denied claims that he struck a deal with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi last week to hold such a vote.
“This is the signal of capitulation,” said Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, earlier. “The mood of this thing is such that to bring it back from the abyss is very difficult.”

But other Republicans welcomed Boehner’s decision.

“Sanity is prevailing. I do give John Boehner credit,” said Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.
Short-term funding for the department was set to expire on Friday at midnight. Those voting for the final bill Tuesday included 182 Democrats and just 75 Republicans.
