GOP Spending Bill Gives Nearly $1 Billion to Aid Border Migrants

Neil Munro, Daily Caller, December 9, 2014

The GOP’s draft 2015 “omnibus” spending bill reportedly includes $948 million to help poor and unskilled Central American migrants establish themselves in the United States, but includes no effective restrictions on President Barack Obama’s plan to provide work permits and tax payments to millions of resident illegal immigrants.

That new spending works out to $16,928 for each of the 56,000 youths, young adults and children who crossed the border during the 12 months up to October 2014.

Prior to October, Obama’s officials sent only 1,901 of the migrants back home to Honduras, El Salvador and Nicaragua, according to a federal report.

Much of the $948 million may also be used to care for the next wave of illegals who could flood across the border during the summer. The influx in the summer of 2015 is expected to be large, because Obama is offering work permits and social security numbers to at least five million illegals already in the country.

The $948 million fund is part of the one-year, $1 trillion 2015 spending plan described in a late-night report from The New York Times.

The GOP leadership has given merely lip service to supporting the opposition among GOP legislators and much of the public to Obama’s welcome for foreign migrants, and is now refusing to direct the Department of Homeland Security not to spend any funds on implementing the Obama amnesty.

Instead, the leadership, led by House Speaker John Boehner, drafted a bill imposing a 60-day spending limit for Obama’s immigration agencies.

The planned 60-day spending limit is largely symbolic, because the most important immigration agency can operate on fees paid by the illegals.

    We have NO party that cares about US. They take us for granted. Nothing will change until we don’t give them a reason to take us for granted.

    • connorhus

      You are so right. There is really only one reason I support Republicans and that is gun rights. They seem to have gotten the message on that for the most part (I know not all of them). That one reason makes em better than Femocrats because when this spending nightmare, Multi-Cult love fest finally get’s closed down it will be time to go to work and I want to be sure I have the tools needed. This is going to end in blood one way or another.

  • D.B. Cooper

    I freaking told you! The GOP won by default. They never once tried to get the white vote. No, they passively waited and HOPED they would win by people getting fed up with the democrats. As usual, they sold you out again! As long as the GOP allows these two liberals to keep their jobs, don’t expect any true changes.

    • Greek Fire

      People didn’t vote FOR Republicans. They voted AGAINST Democrats. At this rate, the GOP won’t hang onto its majority in Congress.

      • HE2

        True, Greek. I voted against Demorats, not FOR Repugs.

        If an entire chapter of the KKK were on the ballot with a high likelihood of winning, they would have had my vote.

          Me too

      • See The Future

        Absolutely correct

    • none of your business

      I think the demorat defeat in last months elections was due entirely to the Ferguson publicity. They started too soon. The truth didn’t leak out to the average person until October. the truth revealed a completely different story from the media lies.
      So every White, union member, Asian and hispanic who voted voted Republican because at last they realized that the demorat party is the party of black thugs.

      • See The Future

        All the democrats have to do to win the next election is dump Obama and Hillary. A strong fresh new face with some charisma will overwhelm the GOP with Christie, Bush, or worse.

        The electorate has short memories and the msm will provide all the support necessary.

    “Will the GOP do anything substantive to oppose executive amnesty?”

    I doubt it.

    • dmxinc

      It’s probably not as sinister as you say.

      GDP Republicans think that economic growth = a great country. They think that immigration increases our economic growth.

      We know differently on both counts.

      • JohnEngelman

        When someone says that a policy is good for the economy, you should ask “Whose economy?”

        • Bossman

          In any free society, there will be winners and losers. No need to give amnesty to any of the unauthorized immigrants. All that is needed is to fix current legal immigration policy and make as it was before 1965. Before 1965, there was no quota on the number of Mexicans who could enter the USA.

          • SentryattheGate

            No, before 1965, immigration was based on quotas from nations and nationalities like us. Mexicans came in temporarily for migrant work, and WITHOUT their families, then sent home after the job.

          • Bossman

            According to the table that I’ve provided, they were treated the same as Canadians, given favored nation status. I wasn’t around but I doubt that anyone was talking about “illegal aliens” back then.

          • Urbane Neanderthal

            No they called them wet backs in those days.

          • SentryattheGate

            Yes, as in Operation Wetback when Pres.Eisenhower rounded up illegal Mexicans and pushed them back across the border!

          • Bossman

            Many of the people rounded up were U.S. citizens and this was done to please returning war veterans who could not find jobs.

          • SentryattheGate

            No, I’ve never heard that many were US citizens (and don’t believe it) and yes, veterans returning from WWII needed jobs.

          • none of your business

            That is because (1) life in Mexico was not all that bad for the average indian worker. (2) No one hired illegal aliens or recruited in other countries for low wages. The big restaurant chains, not just fast food but IHOP and Denny’s type places have 800 numbers circulated all over Latin America to recruit workers. So do many of the garment sweatshops, security guard companies, big builders and many, many more.

          • HE2

            Bossman, mestizos were entering as braceros who traveled back South after our California harvests.
            They did NOT bring their families.
            My farm owning families hired college students to help with the crops rather than mestizos who brought with them then, as now, their filthy habits and disease.

          • Bossman

            These “braceros” were people who were either too stupid to seek legal permanent residence or did not want to become United States citizens. Because according to the table that I’ve provided it was far easier back then for them to become permanent legal residents and then eventual citizenship.

          • HE2

            Just what this country needed, a subgroup of aliens too low IQ or lazy to do what was necessary to legitimize themselves.
            Voilà we finally accomplished it, thanks to the infiltration of our govt by those who hate us.

    • Speedy Steve

      Not quite, John. Most businessmen I know well are contractors who want skilled employees and are perfectly willing to compensate them handsomely. But sadly we have been steadily aborting our working class for over 40 years. The net result is workers who are virtually untrainable on the grounds that their sub-par IQs preclude problem-solving skills.
      You must be mistaking the folks I know for crooked Democrat Party donors like Jeff Zuckerburg and Tom Steyer.

            “The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.”

        i guess your contractor friends have never heard of the union apprenticeship programs? Where do your contractor friends expect the skilled employees to come from? The parking lot at Home Depot?

        The few construction unions that still exist have 3 to 5 year apprentice ship programs that include 2 3 hour night classes a week where they learn not only their trade but the building codes of their state, county and cities.
        The union also rotates the apprentices so that they learn all aspects of their trade.
        The feminazis and school teachers abolished the old shop classes for various reasons but boys never learned all that much in those classes. It was the apprenticeship programs that trained all those skilled workers.

        In California it is the contractors who refuse to hire skilled aka White American male workers and instead recruit 82 IQ indians from Latin America.

            I lived my early years in Pontiac Michigan around union families who worked in unionized auto and truck factories. I had high school friends who ended up union auto and truck factory employees. My father in law is a 30 year graduate at GM. At the end he was parking cars coming off the line for $27.00an hour plus benefits on day shift. I listened to stories how the union members would stick it to management for any imagined slights. As a teen I saw how you could buy new in the box Carter AFB 4 barrel carburetors that had been stolen from GM. Lazy, crooked, feather bedded unionized employees are what destroyed the US auto industry.

    If I hired a private contractor to build a double enclosure fence (similar to what you’d find in a zoo for lions and tigers) how many miles could I build at market prices for 1 billion bucks? 50? 100? I could probably build an adequate border fence for 20 billion. Then fund a border patrol that can with drones and cameras cover a 20 mile stretch; I’d need 1000 manned stations. Seems doable and the costs? Well we just gave the Baptists some ungodly amount of money to provide care for some of those illegal “children”. This is not nearly as difficult as the ‘experts’ pretend it to be.

It was (yet) another reminder that not only are the people not represented in this country — and others — our leaders are not either. From the obviously-chimed applause and wooing, to the dishonoring of the presidency to the sheer lies being spouted (7 million signed up last year) I just finally gave in to the fact that we’re a big enough nation to support useful idiots.

      I do click on Fox regularly. Every time I do some ugly black is blathering away. It is obvious that Fox is just part of the Israeli foreign affairs propaganda effort. Stoessel is hilarious. There he is gasping in shock that some people actually need food stamps even though they have jobs. I caught one segment where he argued to let minimum wage sink to its natural level. Then everyone would have a job. Maybe so, but would they have enough wages to keep a roof over their heads or take the bus to work?

      The one I detest most is O’Reilly and his nonsense that blacks were wonderful church going, married, hard working people who never committed crimes until President johnson came up with the great society and gave them welfare.

      Reality check Bill. States and counties had plenty of welfare long before the great society and blacks were always hugely over represented. Cities like New York and Philly have kept racial crime statistics going back to the 1830’s and blacks were always over represented. In fact in the 1700’s it was common knowledge in New York City and Boston that free blacks were a criminal underclass.

      Well my uncle did, he was so happy on election day, I tried to tell him, but he was so happy I just let him have his moment. I knew better, but sadly people like him will never learn, I notice in the boomers especially they just seem to have this undying love for the Rep no matter what.

    Thank you! As you probably know, unlike most Americans, the UN intends to have 10 regional governments under control of the UN. They already have the EU, the African Union, the South east Asian Union, the South American Union and the North American Union is in the works. UN power is unelected and unaccountable and not our friend!

    They could have spent just a million dollars on boots to boot their tails back over the border.

    “Will the GOP do anything substantive to oppose executive amnesty?”
    Not a chance

    I will throw the Republicans another bone too though. At least some of them on a local and state level do still actually represent their constituents. Not sure what happens once they move up to the Federal level although there are many theories, prolly all correct in one way or another.

    • As you move up the ladder, the political campaigns get more expensive, therefore, reliance on the big wheels of the donor class increases.

  • Speaks all.

    Tell me again how we’re going to vote and constitution and democracy and republic our way out of this mess. These are the two big issues that a lot of Republicans campaigned on (in terms of opposing) this year.

    I wondered to myself what the point of the Goober Gruber hearings were when most of these people grilling Gruber were going to go right ahead and fund what Gruber helped create. Then again, I’m the one who’s been telling you that the reason the Stupid Party will never get rid of ObamaDontCare is because it creates a captive paying audience for an industry that’s a big wheel in Republican donor class politics, that being insurance.

    Amnesty? Well, we all know who and what is behind that. AdelZuck, and many others.

  • How about $1billion worth of landmines along the border?

  • UnCL3

    This?

  • Virus, Smiley

    As I noted already, the GOP will be on board with this plan because it’s been explained to them in caucus by the leadership that SS is bust and it’s going to get worse. The name of the game now is to prop up the dollar. The $1 billion figure will offset the massive outflows for SS payments to retiring Boomers. You got this from me first.
