House GOP Leaders Plan Vote on $659 Million Surge Alien Bill

 We have to man the phones today and  tomorrow and stop the planned vote on the $659 Million Surge Alien Bill. It does nothing to secure the borders and gives Obama an opening to do what he wants on amnesty. Please get everyone you can to stop this bill. Burn the phone lines down. If ever, we need everyone's help calling congress and saying NO to this bill


A note from our friends at FAIR

House Leadership to Send Flawed Border Bill to Floor
Call Your Representatives NOW and Urge Them to Vote No!
Sources all over Capitol Hill are reporting that House Speaker John Boehner plans to send a flawed border bill to the floor this week. The bill will be a response to President Obama's request for Congress to provide government agencies an extra $3.7 billion to speed up the processing of and provide care for illegal alien minors flooding the border and resettle them all across the country.

1. President Obama has caused this crisis.
Under the guise of "prosecutorial discretion," President Obama has blatantly refused to enforce our immigration laws, ordering immigration agents to essentially ignore all illegal aliens who have not been convicted of violent crimes. Removals of illegal alien minors have dropped nearly 80 percent during his Administration. Even President Obama's former director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) unapologetically declared that the chances of the average illegal being deported are "close to zero."
To make matters worse, President Obama has circumvented Congress and adopted administrative amnesty programs, such as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), that shield illegal aliens from deportation. These policies have sent a clear message around the world: if you come, you can stay.

2. Policy changes will either fail in the Senate or become a vehicle for amnesty.
As Congress has debated how to respond to the President's request for $3.7 billion in extra funding, House leaders have insisted that policy changes must accompany the money. They have focused specifically on changing the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008 to allow minors from Central America to be processed and deported quickly like minors from Mexico.
While this is a laudable goal, the Senate has vowed to block any changes to the 2008 Act. And, if policy changes are sent to the Senate, any legislation that returns to the House is likely to contain some sort of amnesty or other bad policy changes. This would set up a dangerous scenario for a conference committee or action in a lame-duck session of Congress.

3. If policy changes pass Congress, they will be rendered meaningless by the Obama Administration.
President Obama has made it clear that he does not care whether Congress amends the 2008 Act to speed up the removal of minors from Central America. Just last Thursday, the White House confirmed that it is considering a plan to admit even MORE Honduran, Guatemalan and Salvadoran minors by giving them refugee status -an act that requires outright ignoring the legal definition of a refugee. Granting refugee status to these minors would nullify any legislation Congress passes to speed up the processing and deportation of illegal alien minors crossing the border.
More importantly, the Obama Administration has vowed that by the end of August, it will unilaterally grant some sort of administrative amnesty to illegal aliens already in the U.S. By some accounts the plan may shield millions of illegal aliens from deportation! (See, e.g., The New York Times, June 30, 2014)

4. The legislation being proposed by House Leadership will not improve the situation. In fact, it will make matters worse!
In particular, the House Leadership bill is damaging because it includes the Cornyn-Cuellar bill. This bill actually further complicates the process of removing illegal alien minors by giving them an additional hearing before an immigration judge to attempt to establish they have a legitimate claim to stay in the U.S. In addition, the Cornyn-Cuellar bill allows illegal alien minors who have received final deportation orders in the past 18 months to get those orders expunged and re-apply for admission to the U.S.!! (To learn more, read FAIR's summary of the Cornyn-Cuellar bill.)

Finally, the House Leadership bill does nothing to address the real cause of the crisis. It does not attempt to stop President Obama's non-enforcement policies or his administrative amnesty programs. And it does nothing to impede President Obama from fulfilling his promise to grant administrative amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. by the end of this summer!
Act NOW! FAIR is asking all of its members, supporters, and activists to call their Representatives and urge them to vote NO on the House Leadership supplemental spending bill. Tell your Representative:
• You oppose new legislation that will only complicate the deportation of illegal alien minors;
You demand that House leaders address the TRUE cause of this border crisis: the President's non-enforcement policies and administrative amnesty programs. House leaders should support legislation that significantly restricts the President's ability to abuse various forms of relief such as deferred action, humanitarian parole, parole-in-place, temporary protected status, etc. This includes supporting legislation authored by Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Marsha Blackburn that would end DACA; and
You demand that House leaders immediately take action to stop the President from fulfilling his promise to grant administrative amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S.

House leaders plan to vote on their bill THIS WEEK! Call your Representatives NOW!

And it is good to look closely at our leaders if they allow genocides to be committed unabated, but historically speaking, this ain't nothing. The list of presidents who allowed more atrocious acts is long.
Every president prior to Lincoln allowed slavery in America. Millions of enslaved people right within our own borders. And all prior to 1900 in some way or another effected a genocide upon Native Americans. In the 20th and 21st centuries the unabated mass murders were too numerous to count. In our hemisphere Pinochet, Duvalier, and Castro were amonng the most egregious. Elsewhere there were true monsters. Ho Chi Minh, Mao tse tung Pol Pot, and the Jungs of North Korea serve as Asia's worst. Lenin, Stalin, Coucescu, Franco lead Europe. Africa's all time incluee Idi Amin, Khaddaffi, Taylor, South Africa as a nation and most Congolese and Rwandans. These are just some that we never acted on or committed ourselves.

Maybe you could feel better about doing nothing if they were on our border:

First, the poll:

Unaccompanied Minors Chart1 320x374 Unaccompanied Minors Chart

Should we send in troops to Iraq? Bomb them? Convince the Iraqi army and security force to do their job and protect their countryman? Get the Kurds involved? Some of all of these, no, I am against troops on the ground.

And just one more thing. Humans are humans no matter their religious affiliation. They are pretty much all innocents and their deaths whether at the hands of these monsters, or by bombs or gang violence, is not acceptable. What does it matter anything we accomplish if we are not accountable for protecting any and all children.

This is going on while himself is on another of his posh tax expence paid vacations.  So tell me Amanda how this administration cares so deeply about the plight of children again?  This, at least to me, sounds every bit as bad as what the Germans did to the Jewish populations, and himself is ignoring it, because he wants a new government.............and probably is late for a golf game!

Islamic State Muslims Now Systematically Beheading Christians Children
Comment by Patricia M. McBride on August 10, 2014 at 4:26pm

Amanda, that is just not true.  The last numbers I saw were that 66+% want these children sent back.  While we are at it since you and all you liberal leaders like himself are just torn up over "the poor children" invading our country, but don't seem to give a flying flip about the Christian children being beheaded by Isis..............and the mothers being raped and beheaded and the fathers being hanged.  So do please explain what is different about the invaders as apposed to the folks in Iraq.  Or no, don't bother.  The difference my dear is that himself wants every last one of these and is fighting voting laws requiring an ID, because he has threatened to send these folks back if they don't vote and vote democrat.  So, your folks, Ms Amanda, do not care one bit about all these children and the accompanying adults except as illegal voters in our elections!

You cannot have good solutions without honest facts.  The problem is that the establishment politicians do not let phony facts get in the way of their solution.  Their approach is to create facts that match their agenda.

70% if the country believes that unaccompanied youth should be treated as refugees. Now if you don't want popular sentiment to rule the day then all parties, the Senate, House and White House need to get together and find a resolution. Why is that everyone thinks their's is the only idea that can work. The House, nor Senate nor WH gets to decide on their own. The WH of course gets to act by executive order, which is hard to argue against when the legislative branches have not produced a bill that they have agreed upon.

How liberal with your I am so clever and those pesky conservatives and republicans are so stupid we could use trickery and lies to convince them to our way of thinking!   Shame on you.  It wasn't even funny Amanda!

Comment by amanda choate on August 9, 2014 at 7:05am

FAIR offers no solutions. With this approach we are left with the situation as is. The law is currently being implemented, you may not like the law, but these are the results. 

If the WH were smart, they would claim these children were Israelis fleeing the rockets of Hama's. Then everybody would want them here. Just teach them a little Yiddish and make sure they don't eat any pork.

Crenshaw didn't have someone call me and I also asked him to vote NO.  Wonder what that's about???  No bill giving Obama ANY more money is a good bill and most especially for this!
