At least some of the Border Protection refused the bribe

"Lawmakers proposed significant assistance to the agency for its efforts to quintuple that workforce, including by boosting base pay for General Schedule positions by 15%"

Typical Dems

when they want the votes they offer taxpayer money to bribe needed support.

obviously they thought this sell out would get BP agents on board to support the bill.

I need the citation for this.  Do you have it handy?

Homeland Security, Mike Gallagher R-Wisc
« Reply #3004 on: February 07, 2024, 06:25:56 PM »
Mike Gallagher is otherwise one of the good ones but here he is 1 of the 4 R's who voted No on Mayorkas impeachment.

In the WSJ he explains, subscription required,  this will start the practice of impeaching each other's cabinet members.

Good point but with due respect, isn't that door already opened with 98% of Republican members on record voting for impeachment?

What Biden and the Democrats admitted in the previous border security bill
« Reply #3006 on: February 13, 2024, 07:19:32 AM »
"If the border can be shut down when more than 5,000 illegal immigrants cross per day, then why can’t it be shut down immediately, right now?"

https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2024/02/12/the_one_border_question_dems_cant_answer_150479.html#2

Put another way, yes it can.  They don't want to.  And they left provisions in the bill to NOT shut the border down even when those targets, a million illegals a year, are surpassed.

70% of Americans want the border secured.  Democrats in power in Washington don't.  Too bad Americans don't control the White House and Senate, or even the Senate Republican leadership.
