House GOP Signals a Government Shutdown If Border Will Not Be Secured

TownHall

Some Republican members of the House are threatening to not vote for an upcoming government funding bill if it does not include provisions to secure the U.S.-Mexico border amid the historic crisis.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) urged his members to not vote for the funding bill. U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed earlier this week that with the month of August’s illegal immigrant encounter numbers, Border Patrol agents have encountered over two million illegal immigrants in less than one fiscal year.

“If Biden [and] Democrats don’t use this government funding bill to address the border crisis immediately, I’m voting NO on this bill, and I urge my colleagues to do the same.”  more here

  2. Hey look! It’s vote harvesting time so we have to band together and do What’s Right! As soon as these elections have past McCarthy will urge his members to bury their thumbs up their butts till next election season. I’m so sick of these people.

    “Uncle Al: I predict Border Open, no government shutdown.”

    Border Open, NINE TIMES the Government!

    We’ll be sending armed IRS agents to deal with the shutdowners.

    They will all have “tax problems”.
