After House GOP Shuts Down Toxic Border Bill – RINO Mitch Quickly Melts Down!

This week, Senate Democrats unveiled a bill meant to address the border crisis. Quickly, Republicans were outraged. The bill demands three times more money for Ukraine than the U.S. border.

The bill, according to critics, does not go far enough to stop the millions of migrants who are entering the country illegally.

Senate Republicans have slammed GOP leadership, including Mitch McConnell for supporting the bill. And now, Republican leaders in the House have made their stance on this bill clear.

Top House Republicans shot down the border bill that was unveiled in the U.S. Senate on Monday, saying that it was dead on arrival if it makes it to the lower chamber of Congress.

House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA), Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-LA), Majority Whip Tom Emmer (R-MN), and Chairwoman Elise Stefanik (R-NY) killed the bill in a joint statement.

“House Republicans oppose the Senate immigration bill because it fails in every policy area needed to secure our border and would actually incentivize more illegal immigration,” the statement said. “Among its many flaws, the bill expands work authorizations for illegal aliens while failing to include critical asylum reforms. Even worse, its language allowing illegals to be ‘released from physical custody’ would effectively endorse the Biden ‘catch and release’ policy.” [Source: Daily Wire]

Speaker Johnson and other House Republicans exposed what appear to be many flaws in the Senate border bill. They claimed it would actually encourage illegal immigration by, among other things, providing work authorization for illegal aliens.

Opposition to the Democrat-led bill is only increasing. And now, Senate Republicans—including the man who co-authored the bill—have been forced to turn on it. Mitch McConnell, who previously demanded Republicans to vote for it, is now backing down.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the shocking decision to recommend Republicans block the advancement of the Senate pro-migration border bill…

McConnell cited the overwhelming number of Senate Republicans planning to vote against the measure either on substance or because they wanted more time, according to Punchbowl News.

Even [GOP Sen.] Lankford, who continued championing the deal leading up to Monday night’s Senate Republican Conference meeting, would not say after the meeting if he would vote to move forward Wednesday on the deal he negotiated, according to the Huffington Post. [Source: Breitbart]

Mitch McConnell is doing a 180 and is urging Republicans to block the advancement of Democrats’ border bill. Just a few days ago, McConnell was calling on all Senate Republicans to support the bill.

It seems outrage from the party—as well as from Americans who have heard about this bill—is forcing McConnell to back down. Calls for McConnell to be replaced likely provoked him to make this move. Not to mention House Republicans’ vow to shoot it down.

Without Republican support, the bill will be unable to break through the 60-vote threshold.
