Do the Republicans IMAGINE we are REALLY ALL THAT STUPID OUT HERE?
Liberal, minority Dems sound off against omnibusOf course now we find out the R’s had asked for the increase in H2b visas, and while they were busy ensuring large biz could hire lots of cheap labor and say the jobs were kept in the USA, while citizen workers are out on SNAP and collecting, while losing health insurance, …
House Democrats are lining up against a year-end government spending package, saying it tilts too heavily in favor of Republican priorities.
“I think it’s a disgrace,” Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.), a leading member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), said Thursday morning. “I think Democrats have to stand up tomorrow and say, ‘no.’”
The leaders of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) delivered a similar verdict. Reps. Keith Ellison (D-Minn.) and Rául Grijalva (D-Ariz.) said they both intend to oppose the $1.1 trillion spending bill when it hits the floor Friday.
Ellison was quick to praise the Democratic negotiators, saying they did “excellent work” to make it “as good a bill as possible.”
“But that’s a separate question from whether I’m going to vote for it,” he said.
But he criticized a provision increasing the number of visas for foreign workers, warning that such an expansion “could wreak havoc on our job market, especially with unemployment being so high among African Americans.”
“We don’t need cheap labor to come in,” he said, adding that, “I have not made a definitive decision yet.”
The spending bill has put Pelosi in a pickle, caught between a liberal Democratic caucus opposed to many of the GOP tax and policy provisions and the reality that Republicans control both chambers of Congress.
Congress Votes To Fund Nearly 300,000 Visas For Muslim Migrants In One Year
The House passed Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)58%I am DONE.
’s $1.1 trillion omnibus spending bill, negotiated with Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)9%
. A majority of House Republicans voted for the measure, which fully funds Obama’s refugee resettlement operation, all Mideast immigration programs, Sanctuary Cities, Obama’s continued executive amnesty for DREAMers, and the resettlement of illegal aliens within the U.S. interior.
In perhaps a display of loyalty to Ryan, three-fifths of the Republican conference supported his legislation, and even gave him a standing ovation following the bill’s passage.
In passing this legislation, the House has approved funding for the issuance of nearly three hundred thousand visas to migrants from Muslim countries in the next year alone.
Ryan’s bill accomplishes this migrant surge by fully funding every U.S. immigration program currently in existence, as well as funding the President’s expansion of the refugee program through Syrian migrant resettlement.
The most recent available data published by the Department of Homeland Security shows that in 2013, around 118,000 migrants from Muslim-majority countries were permanently resettled within the United States on green cards, as well as approximately 40,000 refugees and asylees from Muslim countries. Additionally, according to data from the State Department, in 2013 the U.S. voluntarily admitted approximately 123,000 temporary migrants from Muslim countries as foreign students and foreign workers.
The only way any of this makes the least bit of sense is that Ryan is pro Trump and is a provocateur driving voters to Trump.
