    U.S. Speaker Pelosi opens door to more funds for border migrant crisis

    U.S. Speaker Pelosi opens door to more funds for border migrant crisis

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday opened the door to President Donald Trump's proposal for emergency funds to address a migrant surge at the southern U.S. border, saying some money to alleviate the humanitarian crisis could be included in pending disaster relief legislation.
    Pelosi was not talking about money for the border wall Trump wants, which Democrats oppose. Republican Trump on May 1 requested $4.5 billion for programs that house, feed, transport and oversee record numbers of Central American families seeking asylum and straining capacity at migrant shelters in border cities.
    Democrats initially questioned whether the administration was seeking more funding to expand the detention of migrants entering the United States illegally.
    But Pelosi told reporters on Thursday she hoped some assistance for the "humanitarian crisis" at the border could be inserted in a bill congressional leaders are working on to help Americans rebound from a string of natural disasters, from wildfires to floods and hurricanes.
    "What is happening at the border is tragic and we hope to address some of that in the supplemental, the disaster supplemental, to provide some of the resources that are needed there," Pelosi said. She provided no details.
    John Sanders, acting commissioner of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency, said on Wednesday that the number of people apprehended at the border since Oct. 1 was nearly 520,000, the highest level in a decade. He said that in the past seven days, there was an average of 4,500 arrests a day.
    Trump earlier this year declared the immigration influx a national emergency, which allowed him to circumvent Congress to redirect more than $6 billion in funding to start building the border wall that he campaigned on. His move has been challenged in courts.
    Republicans welcomed Pelosi's statement and hoped it would speed things along in the lengthy negotiations over disaster relief.
    "Hopefully it means that next week we'll be voting on something," said the Senate's number two Republican, John Thune.
    Previously the sticking point of the disaster relief bill was Republican resistance to Democratic requests for additional money for Puerto Rico, which was devastated by a hurricane in 2017.
    Those arguments have been largely resolved, Democrats say. Senate Republicans have proposed some $300 million for community block grant funds for the U.S. territory, a Democratic leadership aide said.

    NOT 1 MORE DIME to support these ILLEGAL INVADERS. Let Trump dump them in Fl. and around the nation to get processed by CBP and then DUMP THEM ON THE STREETS!!!!! Let the BLEEDING HEARTS in the Churches take care of them in each community with their own $$$$ and with LOCAL FUNDS. Screw up these areas of the nation so maybe Dumbed Down idiot Americans might actually consider HITTING THE STREETS in protest and DEMAND THEY STOP COMING!!!!!

    I agree! No more federal tax dollars should be used for personal supplies, housing, food or anything else for illegal aliens or asylum seekers. The very image of US Border Patrol agents bragging about feeding babies, changing diapers and doing water rescues while US National Guard and Military are changing tires and cleaning horse stalls for BP 100 miles away from the border because BP doesn't actually want their help on the front lines, because it threatens their jobs, funding and operational control over the border, has sickened me with the mission and performance of US Border Patrol.

    These are not the skills we need to deter illegal aliens and contraband at our borders. These are not the tasks Americans are funding to secure our borders.

    President Trump needs to announce by an Executive Order that no person from Mexico, Central America or South America will be recognized anywhere by the United States including at our borders for asylum claims, because there is no condition in the home countries that would justify it.

    Americans do not fund a US Border Patrol for "humanitarian" purposes. Americans fund US Border Patrol solely for law enforcement and national security purposes. It's time Border Patrol started acting like it, because the only "humanitarian" crisis associated with illegal immigration are the 43 million Americans on food stamps because they can't afford to feed themselves and the 75 million Americans on Medicaid because they don't earn enough to pay a medical bill because an illegal alien or surplus green card or visa holder stole their job or deflated their wages.

    Therefore we want a ZERO RECOGNITION OF ASYLUM POLICY for Mexico, Central America and South America, and we want it now.

    Don't let them in.

    Keep them out.

    Turn them around and say "vamoose", "shoo", "get out of here", "go away and don't come back".
