Skip to comments.Garbage Budget "Deal" Struck ($1.37B / 55mi wall)
Posted on 02/11/2019 6:24:33 PM PST by MountainWalker
"The agreement reached tonight would include:
-$1.375b for border barriers (55 new miles of bollard fencing) -Dems drop call for new cap on ICE beds for detentions in interior -Overall cap on detention beds drops from 49,057 to 40,520
Per congressional official."
That’s the important thing.
We need a new labor
it’s off to the races (hopefully)
You’ve got to be kidding. NO.
Declare emergency & build the wall.
Trump’s reelection & our survival depend on this.
We got screwed .
Fire McCarthy and Mitch .
Work a deal with the State of Texas for building the wall.
The Texas border is what, 64% of the total, coast to coast.
Let the other states enjoy the spillover, Texas needs a break from the invasion, we are up to our ears with the illegals.
For what possible reason would the Democrats want to reduce jail space for illegals? That is bizarre. It looks like an arbitrary demand.
I can't see Trump signing onto this POS.
Take the money and declare victory. Then, use alternative means to get more money outside Congress.
This is correct
Correct. 1.37 Billion is NOT 5.7 Billion— it is 4.33 Billion SHORT. The President will NOT sign this.
BTW— out of the blue, the dems started demanding more beds for the illegals already here and to compensate for even more to be “let in”. This is their idea of negotiation. The increase in “beds” for detainees is an increase in “detainees” who can be allowed to weasel their way in.
Dems still pushing illegal entry as a result.
And primary the Republican congressman from TX whose district is on the border and opposes the wall. That guy must be getting paid off by the cartels.
Think strategically. He should sign it, and start the wall. Then when it isn’t enough money or an appropriate structure, he should do the EO to do it right.
Why are we capping the number of convicted criminals we will detain?
Why are we pretending that the Republicans care about us anymore?
Democrats... scored a lot of domestic policy wins in those measures
It is indeed garbage.
If you can’t get Mexico to pay for the wall, maybe Texas will?
To release the myagrabs to some Church-run org. who relocate them to your town.
