Reid Says Border Already Secure (Video)

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid asserted bluntly Tuesday “the border is secure.”

The Nevada Democrat was citing comments made during Tuesday’s caucus luncheon by New Mexico Democrat Martin Heinrich.

Asked about a bipartisan, bicameral proposal from a pair of Texas lawmakers, Senate Minority Whip John Cornyn and Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, Reid said that based on what he had seen, “the answer from me is no, I won’t support it.”

“Our number one concern should be this narrow issue of how we take care of this situation we have on the border,” Reid said. “As I’ve been told, the Cornyn-Cuellar legislation covers a lot of other issues … Remember, had we done comprehensive immigration reform, we wouldn’t be having this issue.”

Cornyn and Cuellar jointly briefed reporters on their plan Monday evening. The House may roll out a border funding proposal in response to President Barack Obama’s $3.7 billion request by the end of the week.

Asked if the Senate might depart for the August recess before moving the supplemental spending package, Reid said “I hope not.”

    Shame on both the Republicans & Democrats for failing to pass the Unemployment Extension Bill for the more than three million unemployed families, who have been without benefits since late last December. Both parties have failed these unemployed Americans miserably. For more than seven months now, these families have continued to fall into financial ruin & deep poverty. These workers thought that both parties would eventually do the just and morally correct thing, and pass the bill in the senate. But that was sadly not what happened. The Republican senate were too busy fighting on behalf of their “supporter” the Koch Brother’s oil pipeline bill. They have clearly made it known just for whom their party answers to, and whom they support. And it is not you or I my friends. The Democrats too have chosen to give up and walk away from these millions of unemployed families. They have shown a total lack of resolve and integrity. In the coming elections, we the people, need to clean house. We need to elect “public servants” again, Remember them? They’re the ones that “serve” the public.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
