Boehner: Emergency border deal unlikely

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – House Speaker John Boehner says he is not optimistic that Congress will agree to approve an emergency response to the border crisis by the end of this month.

President Barack Obama has requested $3.7 million in emergency funds to increase border security and speed up deportations of tens of thousands of child migrants who have crossed the US southern border.

But the Republican leader says it will be hard to approve the funding request before they go on recess on Aug. 1 because Democrats refuse to change a 2008 law that combats human trafficking — which has been blamed for the influx.

“I don’t have as much optimism as I’d like to have but again, we are working with our border group. We are working with the chair of the appropriations committee, trying to find some way to deal with what is a humanitarian crisis at our border,” Boehner said.

    it’s 3.7billion, not 3.7million as the typo error above. the 3.7billion will be used by obama to resettle these illegal alien border crossers, and not to deport them ASAP. bush 43rd signed in 08, the imprecise law to combat human trafficking. we all know now, on actual applications, the law is too flawed, abusively being used by central america’s illegal aliens and other countries like the PH, where deportations of illegal aliens claiming human trafficking to proceed adjudication, which can take years, instead of speedy deportations. changing the flawed human trafficking law by tightly closing loopholes will quickly deport these illegal aliens, saving the hard earned money of taxpayers, obummer wanting to waste with these runaway wrecker illegal aliens. the demonicraps will not agree to change the flawed clause of the human trafficking law, for them it’s like throwing the goldmine they have found among these illegal aliens to win elections and reelections. yes, sireeeeeeee!, the demonicraps have mustered politic’s dirtiest way of winning, and now these demonicraps are in their PHD, the philosophical scheme with overused of propagandas, to send those they can fool to the cleaners, even with visible physical proof obummer is wrecking the USA with the help of these aggressor illegal alien border crossers. the brainwashed fools remain droolers/lickers of obummer, while their hoods used to be neighborhoods are decaying right before their limited opened eyes. these illegal aliens swarming your neighborhoods to turn them to hoods will be equity loss for the middle class, whose main assets are their homes. the demonicraps governors are recognizing these illegal alien border crossers are liabilities, instead of assets – the propagandas of the acting up militant illegal aliens, their supporters with their own self interest agendas. are these demonicrap governors sincere in blocking the mob of illegal aliens in their states? only their constituents of their home states will do the job of unseating them on election season, if found to be dishonest.

    Boehner stop playing games and impose the existing Law and dont give any fund to OBAMER Period .
    Deport the Illegals in this country by drawing the line like this…

    Tier 1 – prove you have been here > 20 years with ‘zero criminal record’ and you become [first] in ‘repatriation’ ie: you must go back to country of origin for a minimum of six months.

    Tier 2 – prove you have been here >10 <20 years with 'zero criminal record' and you become [second] in 'repatriation' ie: you must go back to country of origin for a minimum of 1 year.

    Tier 3 – ALL others are deported plain and simple.

    Stop it you people in office that we Americans put in, is stupid? All of you just send everyone that don’t belong in America back from where they all came from? Bohner stop with the acting like your the man and your just like Obama all mouth no action. Look you can stop them or built a wall on the border a big wall and put a big sign on it “WARDING ANYONE COME OVER THE WALL WILL BE SHOOT” And see who wants to come to America the wrong way? This must be done or we will have this big mess all the time illegals coming into America? Sad but we Americans have to put our feet down and say, you come to America the right way or get kill because you jump the wall on the “BORDER.” And came the wrong way?
