Republicans’ Last-Minute Attempts To Close Obama’s Open Border Before Recess


House Republicans don’t want to leave DC for the five weeks of their August recess without addressing the mess Obama has dumped into their laps on the border. They are running short on time, which has been part of the Democrat plan all along, hoping to force reactionary, desperate measures which accommodate their pro-amnesty demands.

The House has several options they are considering, with all at a greatly reduced level of funding. Republicans have trimmed the price tag for this piece of legislation from the requested $3.7 billion down to less than $1 billion. The mixture of spending, including the amounts earmarked for enforcement versus how much goes to reward the treasonous acts of the Democrats and their cohorts from Latin America is still not being disclosed.

There is a consensus and awareness among Republicans that they have to do something, but it needs to be something of substance, which is directed at resolving the problem, not exacerbating it.

House Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-TX) said, “Our Republican conference carefully and thoughtfully considered where the country is, what needs to be done, and I believe that we will act. There’s no one in there that didn’t recognize that we have to address this problem.”

One point of agreement for Republicans is the need to correct the vague language of the 2008 human trafficking law which is being contorted by the regime in order to create the current stampede at the border. Adding more judges is also high on the list to speed the processing, but processing more of them into American society is not a solution to this fabricated problem. One way bus tickets back home are.

One promising development is the consideration by Republicans of a separate resolution which would address the Obama regime’s flaunting of immigration law and selective enforcement, including the “deferred deportation” which is de facto amnesty.

Many of the Republicans know the risks of believing anything that comes out of the socialist administration and they’ve put a tremendous amount of effort into creating this situation. They are not about to let their work be undone by some mere patriotic rabble.

Rep Tim Huelskamp (R-KS) put it bluntly, “We can’t trust this president. He could go in and issue an executive order again the next week. How do you hold the feet to his fire? I don’t know how the legislation could do that.”

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) doubts whether a symbolic vote on the illegally instituted DACA program would be of any value. He said, “Do we really need a vote to say that DACA isn’t the law? The only thing it passed was the president’s lips.”

Another serious concern is that whatever package might be passed by the House would face the possible risk of the Senate attempting to attach their comprehensive amnesty bill to it.

The problem is a simple one to correct but a difficult one as well. The situation exists as a result of the criminal regime of B. Hussein Obama abusing their offices, violating their oaths and acting in violation of American law. They are aggressively acting to destroy our nation, attacking our Constitution and the rights, freedoms and protections of our citizens.

The logical response is to eliminate the problem at the source, removing the Obama regime from power, including the corrupt heads of DHS, DOJ, IRS, Federal Reserve, EPA, Dept of Education and HHS as well as the myriad of other officials who have taken part in the dismantling of our sovereign nation.

That is the where the problem lies, once they are removed, Americans can right their own ship. With true American patriots once again in control of their government, the other problems will quickly disappear.

Speaker Boehner needs to stay in Washington, and draft some articles of impeachment.
