CAN’T MAKE THIS UP: Republican Senators Hold Presser, Accuse Biden of “Intentional” Border Crisis – Then Vote for $1.7 Trillion Spending Bill with No Money for Border

Republican Senators held a press conference on Wednesday where they accused Joe Biden of creating an “intentional” crisis at the US southern border.

The Republican senators bravely spoke about Biden’s failure to act despite record-breaking levels of illegal immigration.

These same Republican senators voted on a motion to proceed on the House message on H.R. 2617, the $1.7 trillion spending bill.

21 GOP Senators voted for the bill.

As Breitbart reported:

Along with funding the bill, the omnibus includes:

  • $45 billion in military and economic aid for Ukraine’s conflict with Russia. This is billions more than the $37 billion Biden requested
  • $5 billion in earmarks for 3,200 projects
  • $47 billion for the National Institutes of Health
  • $1 billion for Peurto Rico’s electrical grid
  • $600 million to address water issues in Jackson, Mississippi
  • The Senate version of the Electoral Count Reform Act, which would change the process for lawmakers to object to the certification of the presidential election.
  • Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) push to have a ban on TikTok on government devices is included in the omnibus
  • The omnibus spending bill contains $575 million for “reproductive health” where population growth “threatens biodiversity.”
  • The bill also refers to Salmon or “Salmonid” 48 times,

The legislation also contains billions of dollars in earmarks.

The spending bill sends over $45 billion to Ukraine to protect its border.

But they couldn’t find any money to protect the US southern border.

This is just another example of how Republican Senators led by Mitch McConnell are full of crap.
