U.S. Senate Blocks House Border Security Bills

Wednesday, August 6, 2014 (4:00 am) | Worthy News / US News

WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)– In a matter of minutes, Senate Democrats on Tuesday adjourned for the summer, blocking a pair of House bills that would have provided nearly $700 million to deal with the surge of immigrants on the southern border and blocked President Obama from expanding an anti-deportation program, the Washington Examiner reported.

Senators left Friday for a five-week recess, hours before the House passed the border legislation in a late-night session. The Senate gaveled in briefly Tuesday, just long enough for Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., to object to taking up the House bills. They can be taken up later, but the Senate agreed to adjourn until Sept. 8, virtually guaranteeing there will be no action this summer.

The Senate had its own border bill, worth $2.7 billion, but they did not take it up before leaving town.

    the president wouldn't go to the border when he was in Texas recently. The governor wanted him to see the crisis for himself. His reply was that he was doing a fundraiser and couldn't be bothered with a photo op at the border. America is under attack and we are too sleepy to realize it!
