Tea Party Triumphs: Divided House Abandons Vote on Border Bill

 Demonstrators protest Obama's healthcare reform plan

The House has abandoned a vote on legislation to address the immigration crisis on the border after tea partyers withdrew their support in a dispute over a separate measure on deportations.

Speaker John Boehner issued a statement Thursday saying the House would continue to work on solutions to the crisis. His statement came shortly after the House postponed the vote on the final day before a five-week summer break.

  1. I am not sure that is still true - Breitbart has a story quoting Issa saying they are staying until something is passed - sort of like the Chrismas Eve surprise with Obamacare... don't trust any of them until you actually see/hear the gavel that adjourns Congress for the rest of the summer.

    1. The only thing that needs to be done is close down the border and send all illegal aliens back, period.

    2. No new laws are needed for that - Enforcement of existing law is all that was ever needed. This is a total LAWLESS SCAM - Rope needed in Washington NOW!
