House Republicans Trim Border Security Budget Despite Calls for Resources - ABC News

There are priorities and there are priorities. This does not bode well for our efforts to stymie future amnesty/citizenship for illegals. More new RINOS in the House, or some have just turned RINO.

This is ridiculous as the problem needs to be CHECKED at the border.

It's painful to watch McCain speak ,War record aside, he needs to retire.

If he retired he would have to spend a lot more time with his wife and daughter, who have well known disagreements with him on political issues.

McCain is an Open Borders Soros-Republican. I was disappointed when AZ didn't fire/retire him last November.

The primary responsibility of this government is to secure its borders.

I am afraid John Boehner is eventually going to accept a comprehensive reform that grants illegals their longstanding demands of amnesty/citizenship in return for more border enforcement, which will be deemed to secure the border. He is Catholic, and he may well accept his Bishops' position on immigration reform.

That is my fear also. It seems like many Republicans take a strong stance against amnesy or CIR then after they reach higher political office they become transformed and start reversing their positions. I don't trust any politicians these days not to flip flop on this issue.
