Ted Cruz is whipping up opposition to the awful House border bill
This is why I really like Ted Cruz. He doesn’t just talk about doing the right thing and following the Constitution. He takes action.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), an influential tea party leader, will meet with a group of House Republicans Wednesday to urge them to oppose House Speaker John A. Boehner’s plan to stem the flow of migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to several House members who plan to attend the 7 p.m. gathering at Cruz’s office.
Cruz’s huddle is the latest example of the combative freshman senator wading into House affairs and serving as an informal whip against the leadership’s immigration position. It is also a direct shot at Boehner’s effort to pass his legislative package, hours before the bill is scheduled to come to the House floor on Thursday.
On Friday, the House adjourns for a five-week recess, leaving Boehner little time to cobble together the votes necessary to pass his proposal. “I think there is sufficient support in the House,” Boehner (R-Ohio) said after a meeting of the House Republican Conference on Tuesday. But he added, “We have a little more work to do.”
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) will be at Cruz’s closed-press session, as will more than a dozen other House Republicans. Rep. Matt Salmon (R-Ariz.), a member of the House GOP’s working group on the border, is also planning to attend.
An aide to Boehner declined Wednesday to comment on Cruz’s activities.
Boehner’s bill gives President Obama exactly what he wants on the border: more money! It’s a typical, big-government solution to a problem: just throw more money at it. These types of “solutions” never work.
Cruz, along with Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, are leading the charge to stop appeasing President Obama’s lawless behavior on the border.
