As much as the Democrats and the MSM try to blame humanitarian problems at the border on President Trump, it’s just not working.
First of all, many of the attempts mistakenly refer to pictures or stories from the OBAMA-era.
Yes, that’s right!
Even Snopes (of all places), has debunked bogus posts like the one below as FAKES, trying to smear President Trump:
Yes, even the far-left Snopes has confirmed that was a bogus hit job.
Read the full debunk here, but here's the short story: it came from this protest, where the child is clearly outside the cage and in just fine healthy and safety:
Anyway, back to the story at hand.
While President Trump has been making effort after effort to make things better at the border (yes, even for the illegal immigrant migrants), the Democrats are fighting him at every turn.
Even his request for humanitarian aid!
Our President posted this today to inform the nation (will you help us share it?):
Meanwhile, the Democrats are in complete chaos and turmoil.
And Nancy Pelosi appears to be losing control.
Fox News had more on the breakdown in the Democrat party:
A $4.5 billion House bill aimed at providing more funding to migrant families detained at the U.S.-Mexico border is posing a challenge to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’sgrip on her party, as its liberal faction argue that the bill doesn’t go far enough while moderates worry that pushing for perfection will result in inaction at the border.
Calls for more funding at the border come amid reports that children detained entering the U.S. from Mexico are being held under harsh conditions. Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar told Fox News on Monday that the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border is dire. Azar said HHS shelters are at capacity and the budget is not there to increase it unless Congress acts.
Customs and Border Protection Chief Operating Officer John Sanders told The Associated Press that Border Patrol stations are holding 15,000 people – more than three times their maximum capacity.
A $4.5 billion House bill aimed at alleviating circumstances like these is up for a vote Tuesday, but liberal Democrats are calling for provisions to strengthen protections for migrant children, and challenge the Trump administration’s border policies. Democrats met on Capitol Hill with Pelosi late Monday to try and reach a compromise. The meeting reportedly eased some Democratic complaints.
Asked before the meeting about her concerns that Democrats’ push for perfection might result in inaction at the border, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called it “a delicate situation.” Afterward, she appeared to have left the door open saying: “My main goal is to keep kids from dying,” before calling the humanitarian bill a “short-term” measure.”
But others weren’t swayed. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said after the meeting: “We cannot continue to throw money at a dysfunctional system. We are not just asking for simple changes to be made into this bill, but to go back to the drawing board and really address this from a humanitarian issue.”
The White House accused lawmakers in a letter earlier Monday of trying to undermine its efforts at the border, arguing that the House package does provide enough money to toughen border security or funds for Trump’s proposed border wall.
Even NBC also admitted the problems in its coverage:
In an attempt to shore up support for an emergency funding bill to provide humanitarian aid to the southern border, House Democratic leaders are seeking changes to satisfy concerns among progressive and Hispanic members who don't support or trust the administration's immigration policies.
The changes to the $4.5 billion bill is an attempt to make it more palatable to those who have deep-seated concerns about giving the Trump administration additional funding to hold families in detention. But it also sets up a clash with the Senate, which is expected to pass its own version of the bill this week before Congress leaves town for the July Fourth holiday.
The showdown is taking place in Washington as the conditions for migrants being held at the border continue to worsen. But some Democrats say the onus is on the administration to provide better conditions for migrants — or not to hold families at all.
“I’m not interested in making sure that caged children are getting warmer burritos. I’m interested in making sure that they’re not getting caged in the first place,” Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said. “We need to stop funding the detention of children under any and all circumstances.”
Ocasio-Cortez has been working to build support against the measure. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., agrees and says that as a Somali immigrant who came to the United States fleeing war, she can’t support an administration she says is mistreating immigrants.
"It's clear this administration does not have a plan on how to deal with this crisis, and we cannot try to help them to get out of this situation without having a comprehensive plan to deal with the humanitarian crisis," Omar said Monday evening, unconvinced by leadership's attempt to gain her support.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent Monday evening speaking with members of the Progressive Caucus and the Hispanic Caucus in her office to explain in detail what's in the bill, which could be voted on Tuesday.
“I said to the members, we have to have a country where every child knows that they are in their parents arms, literally or figuratively,” Pelosi told reporters Tuesday.
“This isn't an immigration bill," she said. "This is an appropriations bill to meet the needs of our children so we can remove the needs that they have, but also the shame that we should have if they don't have diapers and toothbrushes and care.”
She warned that the Senate version of the bill doesn't provide as many protections for migrants as the House bill, a warning to hesitant members that if they don't support the House bill, they may end up with a measure that provides fewer safeguards for humanitarian treatment - or no bill at all.
“Understand what we’re up against in the White House. The president would love for this bill to go down today," Pelosi hold her members in a closed-door meeting Tuesday, according to a senior Democratic aide. “A vote against this bill is a vote for Donald Trump and his inhumane, outside-the-circle of civilized attitude toward the children.
Some Democrats said they were persuaded to support the emergency aid after speaking with nonprofits and nongovernment organizations, or NGOs, that are caring for migrants on the border and are saying they are running out of money to do so. The House bill includes $60 million for these groups.
Here's just how twisted and turned around President Trump has Pelosi....she doesn't know which way is up anymore!
Which is what happens when you don't stand for anything yourself and only stand in opposition to others.
Check this out:
Speaker Nancy Pelosi clinched an 11th hour deal with progressives on an emergency border spending package on Tuesday, avoiding an embarrassing intraparty split and ensuring the bill’s passage.
Top Democrats made several tweaks to the contentious $4.5 billion border funding bill, just hours before it will be considered on the floor, according to multiple lawmakers and aides.
The newest version will include strict conditions requiring private detention facilities to meet certain standards of care within six months or risk losing their contract — the second time that progressive leaders have forced changes to the bill in the last two daysamid reluctance to giving President Donald Trump any money for his immigration agenda.
“We had to really push to make sure that we’ve got that kind of accountability built [into] it,” said Rep. Pramila Jayapal, co-chair of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. “You can’t just continue to say you need money, but not actually meet the standards that we’re laying out.”
The Washington state Democrat announced that Democratic leaders and progressives had reached a deal on the latest changes just moments after stepping off the House floor, where she had huddled with Pelosi for several minutes.
With the latest changes, top Democrats are now confident they will have overwhelming Democratic support on the floor after a rocky several days for the caucus.
Tensions have been running high leading up to the vote, particularly among progressive and Hispanic members.
