‘Off the menu’..’invasion’…’son of DACA’
After suffering an unsurprising embarrassment yesterday, Boehner’s updated and radicalized border bill has won the attention of Members from his extreme, far-right Conference. See what some anti-immigrant Members had to say:
“The changes brought into this are ones I’ve developed and advocated for over the past two years…It’s like I ordered it off the menu.” –Rep. Steve King [8/1/14]
“[it’s a] very good bill that people can be proud of,” declaring that it was about “stopping the invasion of illegal foreign nationals into our country.” –Rep. Michele Bachmann [8/1/14]
“My bill not only ends #DACA but it prevents the Administration from trying to create a new ‘Son of DACA’ amnesty program by executive order.” –Rep Marsha Blackburn [8/1/14]
Again, the heartless far-right captures Boehner’s gavel.
