McConnell To Force Vote On Trump Border Funding Request

McConnell To Force Vote On Trump Border Funding Request

The emergency border funding request contains no money for the wall or for border security, but merely requests resources for overburdened federal immigration officials and departments to better deal with "the immediate humanitarian crisis", as one administration official put it, precipitated by the surge of people claiming asylum at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he doesn't know why Jon Stewart is so "bent out of shape" over securing health care for 9/11 responders, saying the Senate will "take care" of the September 11 Victim Compensation Fund.

"I think it is safe to say the president is getting more cooperation out of Mexico than he is out of congressional Democrats". "We never failed to address this issue and we will address it again", McConnell told Fox in a separate interview Monday.

He was asked why there were few members of the House Judiciary subcommittee on hand when Stewart testified last Tuesday. "I don't know why he's all bent out of shape, but we will take care of the 9/11 Victims' Compensation Fund".

Trump’s attack on Sadiq Khan is inappropriate and unfair
The London-born son of British-Pakistani parents, Mr Khan has sought to portray the capital as a welcoming and diverse place. Trump wrote in response to Hopkins' tweet, later adding the mayor was "a national disgrace who is destroying" the city.

"I think the cold, hard reality is, even though nearly none of my members were enthusiastic about the prospect of tariffs, you have to give the president credit - it worked", McConnell said, according to Politico. "'Gosh we haven't looked at that in a while, but we will look at it, and I'm sure we'll deal with it as compassionately as we have in the past", Stewart said. "McConnell", the former Daily Show host said. The day the House panel passed it, McConnell said about the fund, "Gosh, I hadn't looked at that lately". And this isn't the first time Stewart and McConnell have feuded over it.

The attendance was mentioned in much of the coverage of Stewart's appearance last week. He called McConnell "an enormous obstacle, unwilling to move the bill forward for purely political reasons".

Steve Doocy noted that Stewart used part of his speech before Congress to rail against the fact that so many members of the House Judiciary Committee weren't there to hear him or the 9/11 victims he accompanied.
