Pelosi Says The House Is Ready To Pass Funding For Border...On One Condition
Is this finally the moment we've been waiting for?
Are Nancy Pelosi and the House of Representatives reason to actually come to their senses on the problem with immigration and help get the wall built?
This may very well be the case.
However, it's not going to be so simple. It looks like there is going to be another issue standing in the way.
According to The Daily Wire,
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) says that she and other House Democrats are prepared to follow the Senate's lead and work on an emergency funding bill to help alleviate the humanitarian crisis at the United States-Mexico border.
There's just one catch, though: it'll likely come with "radical riders" that would nullify existing immigration laws and allow illegal immigrants and asylum seekers to use minor children to bypass parts of the asylum inquiry.
What exactly are in these riders?
One source told Fox News, a source familiar with the talks told Fox News that riders, submitted in writing by House Democrats, include one that would stop border agents from conducting any asylum interviews. Another controversial rider, according to two GOP sources, would prevent the funds from being used by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to share information on sponsors of child migrants, potential sponsors or their households with DHS.
Republicans say the effect would be to prevent HHS from sharing information about child smugglers and traffickers present in the U.S. with the department responsible for enforcing immigration law.
Another rider allegedly includes language that would require the federal government to prospectively notify illegal immigrants that if they bring an unaccompanied child into the country and sponsor them, their illegal status would in no way be used against them, a source said, and that the child will be delivered to them without any reservation.
“So we’d not only be protecting the child smuggling loop, we’d be advertising the child smuggling loop to illegal aliens throughout the United States who would in turn then be able to have confidence they could pay a smuggler in a transnational criminal organization to smuggle a child into the country that we would then tell them we would deliver to them regardless of the law breaking involved,” the source said.
All this is, is an effort by the Democrats to try and ruin President Trump's agreement made with Mexico.
I hate to say it Nancy, but this isn't going to cut it. What President Trump has going on at the border right now is far better than anything the Democrats could offer at this point.
