. . . House GOP Passes Worthless Border Security Bill

Arguably the most frustrating thing I read on a daily basis from many conservative and alternative news sites are articles that skip the bad news, giving only the “Hopium” many patriots crave.

House Republicans passed a border security bill. Kevin McCarthy pranced around the halls of Capitol Hill heralding the achievement. The problem is, it will do absolutely nothing. Chances are slim that it will pass in the Senate and even if it miraculously did, Joe Biden has already said he’ll veto it. From there, it has about a zero percent chance of getting the votes necessary to overturn the veto.

Unfortunately, most conservative outlets I read this morning forgot to mention that part. Hopium.

Here’s one by Eric Lendrum at American Greatness that actually does tell the cold, hard facts:

On Thursday, the U.S. House of Representatives successfully passed a contentious bill on border security along party lines, setting up for a showdown in the U.S. Senate.

As reported by Axios, the bill known as the Secure the Border Act of 2023 passed on Thursday evening with 219 votes in favor and 213 votes against. The bill would re-implement many of the most successful immigration policies of the Trump presidency, cracking down on both legal and illegal immigration by increasing deportations while also reducing asylum access. The bill would also eliminate federal funding for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) that aid and abet illegal aliens.

The bill is not expected to pass in the Democrat-controlled Senate, and Joe Biden has already vowed to veto the legislation in the event that it reaches his desk.

Republicans worked on crafting the legislation for months, adding in various provisions to guarantee as much support as possible from their razor-thin majority in the lower chamber. The bill was introduced in response to the coming surge in migration that is expected once the Trump-era policy of Title 42 officially expires.

The Republican House majority can’t protect you. Law enforcement is being held back from protecting you. Living away from the border won’t protect you. This is happening and it’s going to affect us all.
