Ha! Pelosi ignores her far-Left AOC faction and agrees to pass emergency border funding bill

By Jon Dougherty

(NationalSentinel) The Trump administration and constitutionalists may not have gotten their citizenship question (yet) on the 2020 Census, thanks to Chief Justice John Roberts’ doing his best impression of retired ‘moderate’ Justice Anthony Kennedy, but the administration did get House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to fold.

On Thursday she announced that — “reluctantly” – majority Dems would support the Senate’s version of a $4.6 billion emergency funding measure for the border that is sorely needed in order to relieve overcrowding and provide relief to the thousands of migrants who have illegally crossed into the country.

In a letter, Pelosi said that while the House is “gravely disappointed” in the Senate for passing their own immigration legislation, “the children come first.”



“Therefore, we will not engage in the same disrespectful behavior that the Senate did in ignoring our priorities. In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” the letter continues.

Riiiight. 

That same mean, ol’ GOP-controlled Senate — that also voted to speed relief to the “migrant children.” When Republicans vote to provide relief, it’s bad; when Democrats “reluctantly” do it, it’s good.

Only in Washington and on the unhinged Left does this kind of explanation make any sense.

Bloomberg reported, “The turnaround came after moderate Democrats flexed their power within the caucus by joining with House Republicans to urge Pelosi to simply vote on the bipartisan Senate bill before lawmakers leave Washington for next week’s recess.”

Pelosi said she spoke to Vice President Mike Pence Thursday as well, claiming he assured her that the administration would make some changes to the way in which migrant shelters are run, Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas), said.

Speaking of the unhinged Left, the AOC faction of the Democratic Party isn’t pleased at all.

“We should not be funneling more money to a rogue agency,” said Progressive Caucus leader Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.), adding “To be clear, I will not support the Senate bill.”

As noted by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge, it will be interesting to see how Pelosi’s party treats her after closing the door on impeachment and handing a win to the Senate GOP.

Maybe another caucus member, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who also voted against this bill, can tear herself away from fake, staged photo ops at the border and opposing new beds for migrants to do something constructive for them.

Pelosi did this just to show AOC who is still the Queen. If it wasn’t for that she’d wouldn’t do it. She would like to perpetuate the chaos. Miss Pelosi is an old school socialist who likes to mask her Marxist intentions.
Secondly, there shouldn’t be a need for such a bill. The border should be closed to illegal alien cockroaches.
