GOP Blocks Biden Bill to Fund, Hide Mass Migration

Published January 6, 2024

Democrats and their media allies are pressuring Republican leaders to endorse a $14 billion slush fund that would hide President Joe Biden’s migration flood during the 2024 election campaign.

“They ought to give me the money — I need to protect the border,” Biden told reporters on Jan. 2 about his “Emergency Supplemental” funding request.

But House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) and other GOP leaders say the funding will be used to accelerate — not block — the inflow of Biden’s poor economic migrants during the 2024 campaign year.

“What the White House is proposing is more money to process and allow more illegals into the country,” Johnson told CNN host Jake Tapper on January 3. “We need to do the opposite of that.”

The funding fight is hidden from the public under the media’s skimpy coverage of Senate negotiations on border reforms and dramatic demands for aid to embattled Ukraine and Israel. Those negotiations have stalled amid the Democrats’ determination to protect their “parole” backdoor at the border, forcing the Democrats to step up their demands for the $14 billion.

In his first three years, Biden and his deputies have spent billions of Americans’ taxes to import — not exclude — at least six million migrants into the United States.

The funds — and the requested authority to transfer yet more funds — are intended to operate the network of quasi-government non-profits that help transport and shelter migrants into many cities around the nation. The request even asks for $800 million to operate new “Safe Mobility Offices” in Ecuador and other countries that are intended to help more migrants reach the U.S. border.

The extra funding is in addition to the redirected disaster aid included in the agency’s regular annual budget that continues from the prior year.

Years of prior funding have allowed the administration to establish a vast network of “controlled flow” aid camps for migrants, all the way from Panama to New York.

This NGO-run migration network — also dubbed the Northside Catch and Release Network — helps many of the migrants that are delivered to the border via the cartel-managed networks. The NGOs, such as Catholic Charities, also work with many U.S. employers and investors eager for more cheap labor, apartment-sharing renters, and taxpayer-funded consumers.

But in 2023 and 2024, the huge network has been swamped by Biden’s rising number of migrants. The crush has created squalid encampments in Mexico, budget cuts in New York, voter protests in Chicago, and migrant tents in Denver — even as millions of additional migrants are trekking northwards to Biden’s welcome.

There were over 302,000 migrant encounters in December alone

House Speaker Mike Johnson is pushing back against White House claims that Republicans have an “anti-border security record” and have sought to cut Border Patrol agent numbers — with Johnson dismissing the claims as “desperate” as the country deals with a historic migrant crisis at the southern border.

“From the start of President Biden’s term, House Republicans have voted for significant year over year funding increases for Border Patrol and ICE beyond what his administration has requested. And from the start of President Biden’s term, his Administration has implemented policies that have undermined security and created a humanitarian crisis at the Southern border,” the memo from Johnson’s office said.

“Now, in a desperate attempt to shift blame for a crisis their policies have induced, they have argued it’s a funding problem. Clearly, they have no facts to back up their claim,” it said.


The White House repeated claims this week that Republicans had voted to eliminate over 2,000 Border Patrol agents and erode the federal government’s capacity to seize fentanyl.

“Actions speak louder than words. House Republicans’ anti-border security record is defined by attempting to cut Customs and Border Protection personnel, opposing President Biden’s record-breaking border security funding, and refusing to take up the President’s supplemental funding request,” spokesperson Andrew Bates said.

The 2,000 CBP cut is based on an Office of Management and Budget analysis of the Republican budget plan from last year, which found that funding cuts would lead to a staffing cut as it laid out.

The White House also accused the House Republicans of failing to work with the Senate and administration to secure agreement on a supplemental funding agreement for Ukraine, Israel and border aid. The White House has requested $14 billion for the border as part of that proposal.

On October 20, the Biden administration renewed its request for emergency supplemental funding for border management from Congress. This new $14 billion request represents more than a $10 billion increase from the administration’s original August proposal and includes a sizeable investment in areas of the immigration system often forgotten by years of deterrence-heavy policy. Nevertheless, despite several positive requests, the president’s proposal still relies on increased detention and enforcement to address migration at the border.

Two months ago, the Biden administration proposed a much more modest supplemental border funding request as Congress began to debate the federal government’s discretionary budget for fiscal year 2024. While former Speaker of the House of Representatives Kevin McCarthy and others tried to include restrictive and draconian border policies into the budget negotiations, that strategy was derailed as discord among House Republicans resulted in a 45-day bipartisan stopgap funding bill and the removal of Speaker McCarthy as leader of the chamber.

With just 28 days until the stopgap funding bill expires and after nearly three weeks without a new speaker, the future of Biden’s emergency funding request in Congress is uncertain. Nevertheless, this new proposal represents a bolder approach by the Biden administration, one that is likely to draw fire from both progressives and conservatives.

Proposal significantly increases investment in border enforcement and detention capacity

The new proposal includes nearly four times the requested amount for U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) compared to the August request. Both include funding to address the smuggling of fentanyl at the border, which largely enters through legal ports of entry. However, the new proposal adds 1,000 additional CBP officers for this purpose while adding 1,300 new Border Patrol agents to manage the border, which would be the largest requested increase in the size of the Border Patrol since Biden took office.

Another notable increase is for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the enforcement arm of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The proposal includes $2.5 billion in emergency funding compared to $759 million in August. The previous proposal vaguely indicated that the money would be used to “respond to migration surges” along the border. This time around, an accompanying DHS Fact Sheet suggests that this will partially fund additional detention beds due to the administration’s increased use of expedited removal and to “offer necessary surge capacity for any periods of elevated encounters.”

Why do CO2 lag behind temperature?

71% of the earth is covered by ocean, water is a 1000 times denser than air and the mass of the oceans are 360 times that of the atmosphere, small temperature changes in the oceans doesn’t only modulate air temperature, but it also affect the CO2 level according to Henry’s Law.

The reason it is called “Law” is because it has been “proven”!

“.. scientific laws describe phenomena that the scientific community has found to be provably true ..”

That means, the graph proves CO2 do not control temperature, that again proves (Man Made) Global Warming, now called “Climate Change” due to lack of … Warming is – again – debunked!
