Boehner To Senate Democrats: “Get Off Your Ass” And Pass That Child Deportation Bill (VIDEO)

What’s weepy, orange, and mean? Why, House Speaker John Boehner (Ruh-rOH), of course.  This time he wants Senate Democrats to pass the GOP’s cruel Child Deportation Bill — oops — I mean his “Homeland Security Bill.”

In fact, Boehner wants this bill to pass so badly, he’s telling Senate Democrats to “get off their ass.”

Now why don’t you go ask the Senate Democrats when they’re gonna get off their ass and do something other than to vote no.

Does that sound familiar? That’s because Boehner also said it back in 2013 during the sequester battle.

But wait. What does funding homeland security have to do with deporting millions of children and their parents (or tear undocumented parents away from their US-born children)? As explained in an earlier post by Addicting Info‘s Randa Morris, Boehner’s Department of Homeland Security spending bill has five nasty anti-immigrant amendments sandwiched in, including one that would revoke President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA).

Morris writes that Boehner’s child deportation bill is so extreme, even some Republicans refuse to vote for it.

It’s nothing short of a hostage situation. Right wing fanatics are basically saying ‘Give us the kids, or else we will put the entire country at risk of a terrorist attack.’

AP/Yahoo! News adds that Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV)’s spokesman Adam Jentleson told reporters that resolving this impasse shouldn’t be as hard as Boehner makes it out to be. All they need to do is send in the clean bill they agreed to back in December.

“Democrats have been clear from day one about the way out of this mess: take up the clean Homeland Security funding bill which Republicans signed off on in December — and which is ready to come to the Senate floor — pass it, and move on,”

Meanwhile, terrorists at home and abroad must surely be cheering on Boehner as he plays Russian Roulette with the safety of our citizens and our national security. #ThanksBoehner.
