DEMS WANT TO LINK GANG OF 8 AMNESTY TO HOUSE GOP BORDER CRISIS BILL

HOUSE REPUBLICANS PROPOSE PLAN TO DEAL WITH BORDER CRISIS

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/house-republicans-propose-pl...

House Republicans proposed a legislative solution to the growing border crisis Tuesday that would make it easier to deport Central American minors who have entered the United States illegally. The proposal also would give the Obama administration much less emergency funding than it requested to deal with the crisis.

The plan, which would provide $659 million to help federal agencies stem the flow of illegal immigrants, seemed designed to win enough support from skeptical conservatives before the House breaks Friday for the rest of the summer.

DEMS WANT TO LINK COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION REFORM TO HOUSE GOP BORDER CRISIS BILL

http://hotair.com/archives/2014/07/29/surprise-democrats-want-to-li...

Via Breitbart, a rational move if you’re an amnesty shill, no? Obama and Reid know the House won’t pass a mega-bill legalizing all of America’s illegals simply to get O to agree to slow the influx of Central American kids at the border, but that’s okay. When the House ends up choking on this counteroffer, Democrats can get back to their “Republicans hate Latinos or else they’d pass reform” talking points. If they can’t get an amnesty deal out of this crisis, at least they’re going to exploit it to stoke the GOP leadership’s panic over losing Latino voters for good.

Here’s today’s reminder that Democrats will never agree to improve security for the sake of improving security, even during a sustained surge of illegals across the border. There needs to be a concession to make them undertake something so unpalatable.

If House Republicans pass a pared-down funding bill for the border crisis, Senate Democrats are warning they may try to attach the Gang of Eight’s comprehensive immigration reform bill to the package…

“The only way any piece of the House proposal could become law is if it was conferenced with the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform bill, which is something we’d certainly consider,” a senior Democratic aide said Tuesday.

The four GOP members of the Senate’s Gang of Eight bill have already warned against any proposal that links President Barack Obama’s request for border aid money with the immigration legislation that cleared the Senate last year with the support of 14 Republicans.

“While we continue to support the goals of comprehensive immigration reform, none of us would support including that bill in legislation needed this year to address the current humanitarian crisis on our southern border,” said Sens. Marco Rubio of Florida, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina plus John McCain and Jeff Flake of Arizona

CRUZ; BOEHNER'S IMMIGRATION PLAN WILL NOT SOLVE BORDER CRISIS

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/29/Cruz-Boehner-s-I...

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said Tuesday afternoon that the plan revealed by Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis working group will not solve the crisis because it doesn’t stop President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty for illegal aliens.

“The evidence shows that the amnesty President Obama announced in 2012 is driving record numbers of immigrants to enter our nation illegally,” Cruz said in a statement his office released. “Because of President Obama’s amnesty, children are being abused and exploited by dangerous drug cartels and transnational gangs. We must put an end to any expansion of this amnesty that puts countless numbers of vulnerable individuals, both immigrants and U.S. citizens alike, at risk. The only way to stop the border crisis is to stop Obama’s amnesty. It is disappointing the border security legislation unveiled today does not include language to end Obama’s amnesty. Congress cannot hope to solve this problem without addressing the fundamental cause of it.”

Boehner’s working group, which is led by Rep. Kay Granger (R-TX), did not include language from a bill Cruz and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) offered. Their bill would block funding for the administration to implement amnesty via executive order through continuation or expansion of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. 

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, has called on lawmakers to back Cruz-Blackburn or remain “complicit” in the “nullification of our borders.”

Sessions on Tuesday also blasted the Boehner-Granger plan, saying it was a “surrender to a lawless president.”

GOHMERT; UNTIL WE STOP THE FLOOD, WE WILL NEVER OVERCOME THE BORDER CRISIS

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/07/29/Until-We-Stop-Th...

This month I have been down to the Texas-Mexico border three different weekends. My nights patrolling the border, talking in depth with Border Patrol, DPS, Texas Rangers, ICE agents, and people in the area have helped bring a few things into focus for me. Namely – we must secure the border and enforce the law of the land.

UPDATE: Politico Reports A Vote May Come On THURSDAY... Stop The House Republican Leadership From Giving Barack Obama More Money To Fund His Illegal Alien Invasion.


       The liberal media is reporting that Barack Obama is planning to issue an imperial decree that would instruct our embassies in Central America to screen illegal aliens and ship them directly to the United States at taxpayer expense. 

       You read that right. Hordes of illegal aliens won't be sneaking across the border and they won't even be surrendering to border agents because Barack Obama wants to put them on planes and buses and ship them directly to your town or city. 

       As reported by the liberal New York Times, the Obama Regime wants to bring these illegal aliens "into the United States without making the dangerous trek through Mexico."The Times further reports that Obama Regime "officials said they believed the plan could be enacted through executive action, without congressional approval..." 

       Whether Barack Obama has the Constitutional authority to issue such an edict notwithstanding, Obama DOES need John Boehner's Republican-led House to give him the funds to ...

HOUSE CLAIMS BILL WOULD SPEED DEPORTATIONS

http://minutemennews.com/2014/07/house-unveils-bill-speed-deportati...

House Republicans will force a vote this week on legislation to change the 2008 law and allow illegal immigrant children from Central America to be more quickly deported, and overturning environmental policies that prevent Border patrol agents from conducting robust enforcement on federal lands.

The $659 million bill, unveiled Tuesday, would give the Obama administration enough money to house the illegal immigrant children and families surging across the southwest border through the end of September — but it’s far short of the $4 billion President Obama asked for.

And the legislation goes beyond spending to include changes to the 2008 law, as well as a prohibition on storing the children on military bases unless certain conditions are met, and prohibiting those with drug-related convictions on their records from applying for asylum.

The legislation amounts to a short-term leash for Mr. Obama, with strings attached.

BORDER CRISIS BILL CLEARS SENATE HURDLE 

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/07/30/border-crisis-bill-clear...

A bill to deal with the immigration surge on the U.S.-Mexico border won a temporary reprieve in the Senate Wednesday as lawmakers maneuvered to offer some response to the crisis before adjourning for the summer.

Senators voted 63-33 to advance the $3.5 billion emergency spending bill over an initial procedural hurdle. But with the GOP opposed, there was little expectation that the legislation would ultimately prevail with only days left before Congress' annual summer recess.

Republicans called the measure a blank check for President Barack Obama's failed policies and demanded policy changes opposed by Democrats to send the migrants back home more quickly. The bill also includes hundreds of millions of dollars to fight western wildfires and $225 million help Israeli self-defense, but lawmakers were making plans to deal with the money for Israel separately.

Still, Republicans and Democrats alike said the crisis of tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American youths crossing illegally into South Texas demanded a response. Some Republicans voted in favor of moving forward Wednesday, saying they wanted to open debate on the measure in order to be able to offer amendments, though Democrats were expected to oppose such efforts.

"My constituents back home don't understand why in the world we would leave without fixing this problem, without addressing this humanitarian crisis," said Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. "If we don't do anything to deal with the causes or deal with a remedy for this growing humanitarian crisis, it's going to get worse."

The bill includes $2.7 billion for more immigration judges, detention facilities, enforcement measures and other steps to deal with the tens and thousands of youths who've been arriving illegally in South Texas without their parents. It does not include legal changes to permit authorities to turn unaccompanied Central American migrant youths around at the border without deportation hearings that existing law guarantees -- a GOP demand that Democrats say would send the kids back to terrible conditions.

Given that disagreement, there is no clear route to compromise.

CRUZ MEETING WITH HOUSE CONSERVATIVES TO TRY TO BLOCK BOEHNER'S BORDER CRISIS BILL

http://hotair.com/archives/2014/07/30/ted-cruz-meeting-with-house-c...

Cruz wants something in the bill that would bar new illegals from applying for DACA, Obama’s 2012 amnesty for DREAMers. DACA’s the root of the problem, says Cruz; the huge spike in kids coming from Central America didn’t begin until after Obama announced that policy. If you want to reduce illegal immigration, take away the incentive by making sure that O can’t expand his program to other kids.

Boehner’s resisting that because he’s nervous about attacking a program that helped Obama consolidate Latino support in 2012, especially one that deals mainly with kids. The stakes here are low — Democrats will kill Boehner’s bill in the Senate even if Cruz and tea partiers don’t kill it in the House — so it’s an easy opportunity for conservatives to score points at Boehner’s expense. They’re not derailing a bill that would otherwise become law, they’re simply showing righty voters that the leadership’s bill is a sellout.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), an influential tea party leader, will meet with a group of House Republicans Wednesday to urge them to oppose House Speaker John A. Boehner’s plan to stem the flow of migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to several House members who plan to attend the 7 p.m. gathering at Cruz’s office…

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) will be at Cruz’s closed-press session, as will more than a dozen other House Republicans. Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), a member of the House GOP’s working group on the border, is also planning to attend…

Cruz has said he would like House Republicans to defund Obama’s Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program, a suggestion Boehner has so far resisted. At Wednesday’s meeting, Cruz is expected to ask House Republicans to tell Boehner to include this in his plan or risk defeat on the floor and outrage from grassroots activists.

BUDGETS RAIDED TO ADDRESS BORDER CRISIS

http://www.latimes.com/nation/la-na-border-budget-tradeoffs-2014073...

Surveillance drones that hunt drug smugglers along the Mexican border could soon be grounded. Installation of pole-top cameras and ground sensors to intercept illegal crossings might be delayed.

About $44 million has already been diverted from the government's health-related accounts, including the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to pay for food, beds, clothing and medical care for the crush of unaccompanied minors who have crossed the Southwestern border.

And that's just the beginning.

The 2008 law needs to be changed because it is the foundation of Obama's DACA.
