Liberals to continue calling him a Russian agent though
Trump is apparently going to sign the spending bill and then declare a national emergency to build the wall.
President Donald Trump will sign a border security bill to avert another government shutdown, but also declare a national emergency to obtain funds for his promised U.S.-Mexico border wall, the top Senate Republican said on Thursday.
In an attempt to bypass Congress to get money that lawmakers have denied him for his wall, Trump appeared headed toward triggering a swift court challenge from Democrats on constitutional grounds.
“I’ve just had an opportunity to speak to President Trump and he, I would say to all my colleagues, has indicated he is prepared to sign the bill,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor.
“He will also be issuing a national emergency declaration at the same time and I’ve indicated to him that I’m going to support a national emergency declaration,” McConnell said.
The bipartisan legislation would provide more than $300 billion to fund the Department of Homeland Security and a range of other federal agencies through Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year. Funding is due to expire for those agencies on Friday.
According to the media, this will mean $8 billion for the border wall.
Unfortunately, it appears that this is all a hoax.
What Does the Bill Do?
Ann Coulter does not appear to be thrilled by any of these developments. In fact, she’s saying it is some kind of apocalypse.
According to her, the bill he is going to sign says it’s illegal to build a wall…
Breitbart also appears to view the bill as apocalyptic, and is saying it will lead to the biggest influx of immigrants ever in American history.
They say it includes:
- $1.3 billion for 55 miles of steel bollard fencing
- An expansion of Catch and Release
- A potential doubling of the annual low-skilled foreign workers imported to the U.S.
- Less detention space for border crossers
- An amnesty pipeline for Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and their relatives
- Stipulations requiring local officials to approve all wall construction
- Chokeholds on immigration enforcement at the border and in the interior
They quote several immigration experts:
Federation for American Immigration Reform President Dan Stein specifically called out the de facto amnesty included in the spending deal that would provide all illegal aliens with close relations to newly resettled UACs be shielded from deportation.
“In simple English, every new unaccompanied minor who arrives at our border will trigger an amnesty for multiple adult illegal aliens who are already in the country,” Stein said of the provision. “The illegal aliens who will be eligible for protection from removal include not just actual sponsors, but those who might be potential sponsors and every member of their households.”
“If this bill is enacted, expect the largest surge of unaccompanied minors this country has ever seen,” Stein said, urging Trump to veto the deal.
Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) sent out alerts to its activist members asking them to call the White House and demand the president veto the spending deal, instead supporting a Continuing Resolution that would keep funding levels at the same rate.
“It is outrageous and completely unacceptable for any member of Congress to vote on, or for the President to sign, any bill crafted in secret and unread by most lawmakers and laymen alike,” ALIPAC President William Gheen said in a statement.
Officials with NumbersUSA, which fights on behalf of American workers in the immigration debate, said Trump was not given the full text of the spending deal that included the UAC de facto amnesty provision or the language that allows Homeland Security officials to double the number of H-2B foreign workers imported to the country every year to take U.S. blue collar jobs.
Experts with the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) similarly have declared the spending deal a package of “immigration landmines” that comes with two “poison pills” in the form of giving local elected officials authority over whether or not a border wall can be constructed in their locality and the de facto amnesty for relatives, sponsors, and household members of UACs.
Nick Fuentes did a big review of the bill.
He also declared it a complete disaster. And unlike Ann, he’s the optimistic Trump shill.
So this is not good at all.
Though I can’t say I’m surprised.
We’ve been on this road for weeks now.
Trump hasn’t signed the bill yet. He is expected to sign it Friday.
