Washington (CNN) - In a late night vote after a bitterly partisan debate, the House of Representatives passed a $694 million border bill Friday, but the measure has no chance of becoming law.
The vote was almost entirely on party lines, 223- 189, with just one Democrat, Texas Rep Henry Cuellar, voting for it. Four Republicans opposed the legislation.
The Democratic-led Senate had already left Washington to start a five week summer recess after it was unable to pass its own legislation to give the President some of the money he's requested to address the massive influx of migrants at the southwest border.
Speaker Cruz. Hilarious!
Law-abiding, educated, thoughtful people are waiting in line to come into this country to be with relatives and assimilate. Our President plays these people for suckers.
Pitiful waste of time effort and money. So they can claim they "did" something? We all know the truth....
When a foreign born senator can take the leadership of the house away from the drunken speaker, thinking people know the republicans are brain dead.
What a joke...Vote these gop/tp bums out!!!
Obama is a TRAITOR to America. Obama is attempting to destroy our country, through importation of illegal immigrants, and he is doing that willfully, to take over America as a dictator."
Bro... chill out. Its NOT that serious. Go outside, its a nice weekend.
I think those that call America Amurica or Murica is so disrespectful to those that have fought and died for this nation called America . They just dont get it or just dont care anymore or really prob never did ? Go make your own Murica somewhere and disrespect her"
Do you even realize WHY people spell it like that?
Its because MANY of your southern Republicans(GWB, PERRY) don't do so well at PRONUNCIATION. (Uh-Mur-Ica vs Aye-Mare-Ica). So maybe that Red State educational system should've spent some of that bailout money on the school system instead of balancing their state budgets.
@Obama's Final USA Solution
Not enforce our immigration and deportation laws.
Not enforce our borders.
Aid in the invasion of our country by flying and busing illegals all over the USA.
Ask for many billions of tax dollars to make it happen.
Attack those who want our laws and borders enforced as racists, unAmerican, haters.
Use this to gin up November election turnout of Hispanics and left wingers.
And as he promised when elected, "fundamentally transform the USA".
Welcome to the new, Obama transformed USA... renamed USIA, the The United States of Illegal Americans."
-fails to realize this is a George W Bush law the entire time he's writing this...
Send the illegal aliens home to their parents. Why would this country allow illegals to out number black Americans who help build this country, now you let illegals who stole across the border to have move political power than Blacks, that is not fair. Send their criminal ass home. They are all over the got damn place speaking Spanish . Wake up white man you are next . They are having babies multiplying like crazy.
The GOBagger solution to 50,000 children at the border: "Send in the tanks and heavy artillery! "
If Obama grants citizenship to those illegals he should be impeached . This coming from a black Obama supporter. I will encourage impeachment.
Ben Carson is a boot licking Uncle Tom, It was rumored that he did serious damage to female twins head when he was at Johns Hopkins Hospital and that the case was settled out of court. If he were white you would have never heard of him. Take time to listen to him, he is a crazy man. I wouldn't let him near my child
"Speaker Cruz" Sinks John Boehner's Border Security Bill
Ted Cruz leads the spineless to another short lived victory .
When and who will stand up to the the Tweet-le Dee of the Tweetle-dum ?
This is what happens when democracy is hijacked by a guy who reads Green Eggs and Ham to America .
@the rabid right: should Obama grow horns and reveal himself as the Anti-Christ, you'll actually be happy about it,, won't you?
GOP is all about optics over solutions.
Obama is a failed president. Impeachment is the only way to remove him from office. The republicans have turned him into a joke, an embarrassment .i think he is one of the worst presidents in history.
Its dam shame what the United States of America congress has become, a bunch of six year olds. How the hell can this country run by, finger pointing, na nana naa na school children. When will the right say anything out their mouth based on facts and logic, you can't fix the truth with a lie repubs.
The GOP, the national JOKE PARTY.
Obama's Final USA Solution
You are wrong on so many different levels I have to wonder if you and I live on the same planet, much less the same country.
So once again nothing gets done because of the Senate and President; its time this November to vote the Democrats out. its for real change.
It is time for a march on Washington! It is time to take care of this illegal problem for once and all! The Illegals want Amnesty. Sorry. That isn't going to happen. If you are an illegal, and you are reading this, go home and get in line. That is the shortest route, and the ONLY route to becoming a citizen. Withe the Liberal's and democrats running the country, the atmosphere for any real economic progress is zero. Leave while you can still afford it.
Native North Americans wish you would all go home
WHO is talking about amnesty? Rush? The RWNJs who want to stir up their base?
Get real people!
Dems in PA
We're with you. Vote those Dems out and get real change. Can you spell Thermonuclear War? That the real change you want?
Excuse Please, when did we, (The People) make a commitment to the (Dreamers) that they wouldn't be deported? Last time I checked that would be by some Law Debated and Passed by the People, (Congress.). The Illegals are screaming for Immigration Reform (Amnesty). That (Commitment) was made by the Liar in the White House who decided singlehandedly, he would straighten out the world. You know what they did to the last person that tried to straighten out the world, they nailed him to the cross. More to come.
Still nothing on that on-going slaughter in Gaza P.T. Hosts? Deafening.
