GOP: No ‘blank check’

13 Jul, 2014

Opposing Obama’s request for $3.7 billion dollars to help fix the illegal immigration situation,  GOP Rep. Mike McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, tells  Fox News Sunday:

Our view as House Republicans is that we’re not going to write a blank check.

Republicans are suggesting alternative ways to deal with the immediate issues that are much less expensive. McCaul says his caucus is looking at changing a 2008 law that allows children entering the United States from non-bordering countries to remain in this country. He believes the GOP-led House will pass an alternative border security bill before the end of the month.

We have to act soon. It’s a very tragic human crisis at the border, none like I’ve ever seen before.
