The Senate Calls for 1.9 Billion Dollars in Welfare for Newly Arriving Illegal Immigrants
shocking typical turn of events, the Senate is asking for 1.9 Billion in welfare for incoming illegals. Yup, that’s a ‘B’ and not an ‘M’. BILLIONS. : HELLO. Here’s a solution. Buh-Bye. See ya later, Adios, whatever. Come here legally or not at all. I’m not personally interested in supporting any of you.
Amazingly, 70 Republican House members joined with almost every Democrat to defeat Gohmert’s amendment. Among those who voted to keep the subsidies for illegals were Eric Cantor and Renee Ellmers, two Republicans who were challenged on their support for amnesty. Ironically, Cantor was defeated in a stunning upset on that very day by Dave Brat who criticized Cantor for promoting policies that have attracted more illegal immigration.
Worse, on the same day the House rejected the effort to cut off housing assistance, the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on Labor-HHS passed a bill appropriating $1.9 billion in aid to care for the new wave of illegal immigration from Central America pouring into the Rio Grande Valley. According to The Hill, this provision was crafted by Senate Appropriations Committee chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) along with the Republican committee and subcommittee ranking members Richard Shelby (R-AL) and Jerry Moran (R-KS). No Republican objected or voiced concern for this open-ended commitment to subsidizing the illegal migration.
Amnesty is pretty much the most despicable thing any candidate can do, in my book. I know I won’t be voting for, writing a check for, or in any way supporting any candidate from either party that supports amnesty. Welfare benefits and amnesty seemingly go hand in hand as our administration blindly ignores the folks who really need it- the single moms out there working two jobs to afford daycare, food and rent who: aren’t: getting any child support. Support the Americans out there who have paid into the system and need some help, not those who come here to dump their kids.
