    Yes, the Left is trying to overload our immigration system to make it fail, and this is causing unnecessary suffering and even death of children and others at facilities designed for 4k people but holding 15k.

    So this scandal is now being used by Democrats, who control the House and have to start funding efforts for more facilities, to play political games. They are trying to slip in provisions that would make it more difficult for our government to control who enters our nation in an age of terrorism and obscene human trafficking. For those who don't know it, the USa is the worlds largest human trafficking nation thanks to the efforts of corporations to supply black market labor and their corporate crony networks in DC that facilitate their illegal activity.

    White House threatens veto on House border bill

    Some of the provisions added by Democrats include measures that withhold funding from detention centers at the border. The push to pass the bill comes as reports of child deaths after being detained at the border continue to grow.

    Customs and Border Protection Chief Operating Officer John Sanders told The Associated Press last week that children have died after being in the agency's care. He said Border Patrol stations are holding 15,000 people — more than triple their maximum capacity of 4,000....

    The deliberations over the bill, meanwhile, are posing a major challenge to Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s grip on her party.

    It’s unclear when and if the bill might get a vote, even as the Senate is ready to proceed with its own version. Liberal Democrats are calling for provisions to strengthen protections for migrant children, and challenge the Trump administration’s border policies. Democrats met on Capitol Hill with Pelosi late Monday to try and reach a compromise.

    Asked before the meeting about concerns that Democrats’ push for perfection might result in inaction at the border, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called it “a delicate situation.” Afterward, she appeared to have left the door open saying: “My main goal is to keep kids from dying,” before calling the humanitarian bill a “short-term” measure.”

    But others weren’t swayed. Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., said after the meeting: “We cannot continue to throw money at a dysfunctional system. We are not just asking for simple changes to be made into this bill, but to go back to the drawing board and really address this from a humanitarian issue.”

    The White House accused lawmakers in a letter earlier Monday of trying to undermine its efforts at the border.

    Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar also told Fox News on Monday that the situation at the U.S.-Mexico border is dire. Azar said HHS shelters are at capacity and the budget is not there to increase it unless Congress acts.

    Congress plans to leave Washington in a few days for a weeklong July 4 recess. While lawmakers don’t want to depart without acting on the legislation for fear of being accused of not responding to humanitarian problems at the border, it seems unlikely that Congress would have time to send a House-Senate compromise to Trump by week’s end.

    The fact people have DIED in the detention centers really proves nothing. Their condition on arrival may have made death imminent, regardless of the conditions at the camps.

    Pelosi didn't create her own Gestapo. Trump did. She's not president DA; www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow/watch/revelations-of-immigrant-detention-camp-horrors-renews-outrage-62601797898

    It is all a scheme. To have the government to fund more money to private companies to build more centers. Soros knows how to scheme money from the government. Soros kicks out the poor from out of their country. And move them up here, so that he will not have to take care of them. And now he can build his nice luxury resorts and GMO sugar cane fields for the New Green Deal. His motto is, which he has stolen from the president. To Make South America Great again.



    The Trump administration’s new push for more federal detention facilities for immigrants awaiting asylum hearings or deportation has brightened the outlook for the country’s two largest private prison operators.

    Tennessee-based CoreCivic Inc. and Florida-based Geo Group had already been helped by higher federal spending on Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Now, the Trump administration is seeking $2.8 billion in the 2019 budget year to increase the number of beds in immigration detention centers to 52,000—49,500 adult and 2,500 family beds—from about 40,000 now, a spokeswoman said.

    Illegal alien champions Gates, Soros profit by jailing them - WND - WND


    Billionaire George Soros’s investment firm has agreed to spend up to $300 million on an Argentine hotel company’s Latin America expansion, a vote of confidence in a region that has been suffering slow economic growth and waning investor interest.

    The investment by Mr. Soros will help finance as many as 5,000 new hotel rooms in Peru, Chile, Ecuador, Argentina and other South American countries within the next three years, according to Fen Hotels Chief Executive Patricio Fuks. His Buenos Aires-based hospitality company will manage the properties.

    By focusing on Latin America, Mr. Fuks thinks he can get a lot more for his partner’s money than in other parts of the world. New hotel acquisition or construction in major U.S. cities is increasingly competitive and expensive, he said, “but you can still build for a reasonable price in Latin America’s capital cities.”

    Rachel Maddow, a really unbiased source, I tell ya!

    Not. Lol
    Oh, and Pelosi sure seems to think so.

    That does explain a lot since that is your source...

    Why didn't Trump and Republicans make this a priority when they controlled Congress. They did nothing and are now trying to use this as a political tool.

    They weren’t coming in in record numbers.

    But, yes, both sides have fault, to a certain degree, but right now Dems are responsible.

    With witnesses that have confirmed what is going on in these detention facilities, your cowardice to attack Maddow just proves how weak you and your argument is.
