Freshman Dems, Tlaib, AOC, and Omar have been more than little outspoken about the conditions at the border. They are continuously complaining about the supposed poor treatment of the migrants. AOC even compared the detention centers we have set up at the border to Concentration Camps. But surprisingly when the opportunity to fund efforts at the border arose, they all voted against it.
“The House voted 230-195 — almost entirely along party lines — to approve the $4.5 billion package for the border, where an influx of Central American migrants has strained government agencies and led to conditions for detained children that both parties have called horrific.
“This situation is child abuse. It is an atrocity that violates every value we have,” Pelosi said on the House floor before the bill’s passage. “Today our legislation is a vote against the cruel attitude toward children of this administration.”
“Pelosi made a final sales pitch to the caucus Tuesday morning, arguing that Democrats needed to stand behind their plan to tackle the humanitarian crisis, rather than squabble over Trump and his immigration policies. A vote against the bill, she said, would be a vote for Trump.”
But despite these slanderous statements aimed at the Trump, the notorious freshman Dems opposed it.
“All but four Democrats backed the legislation, in a show of unity within the caucus that came after an all-out whip operation by Pelosi and her deputies. The lone dissenters: liberal freshman Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.), Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.).
Three Republicans — Reps. Will Hurd (R-Texas), Chris Smith (R-N.J.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.) — voted in favor of the bill, despite GOP leaders’ repeated attacks on Democrats for their handling of the issue and a Trump veto threat.”
Senator Kennedy the other day mentioned that any conditions that were less than optimal were due to a lack of funding. The very thing these Dems voted against.
This just goes to show you that these freshman Dems don’t really care about fixing the supposed atrocious conditions at the border. If they did they would back bills aimed at fixing the border, especially one created by House Dems.
