Tilli$$: ‘Immoral’ to kill border deal to “help” Trump

Again, can somebody explain to me HOW having this guy in DC is better than having a Democrat?  Anyone ? (*Bueller?*)

This brings up another question for me.  Does using a PAC, with significant funding from stolen funds, to take out a fellow Republican member of Congress from North Carolina ALSO count as “immoral”?   (*Or even “illegal”, perhaps?*)

*Just asking for, you know, a friend.*

Here’s the latest:

Sen. Thom Tillis (R-N.C.) argued it is “immoral” for Republicans to reject a border deal to help former President Trump.

“I didn’t come here to have the president as a boss or a candidate as a boss. I came here to pass good, solid policy,” Tillis said Thursday, first reported by NBC News. “It is immoral for me to think you looked the other way because you think this is the linchpin for President Trump to win.”

Members on both sides of the aisle are upset with Trump’s attempt to kill the border deal to deny President Biden a legislative win. His recent remarks calling for GOP members to oppose a border deal that isn’t H.R. 2 have complicated things for the Senate.

With two solid wins for Trump in Iowa and New Hampshire and a path toward becoming the Republican presidential nominee, Trump’s allies in the Senate are attempting to kill the border package. That could endanger future aid for Ukraine in its war against Russia, which has been tied to such a deal.[…]


Here is a good summary of HR 2 (aka “what Trump likes”).

Something else to keep in mind as Election Day 2024 approaches: Thom Tillis = John Bradford, Jeff Tarte, Chuck Edwards, Tim Moore, and Bill Graham

**** Update:  It appears Thom and his friends across the aisle in the Senate have come up with a, um, “deal” on the southern border crisis:

A bipartisan group of senators has cut a deal that would effectively shut down the border if crossings exceed certain levels as Border Patrol struggles to handle a record influx of illegal immigrants.

The proposal, part of a border bill expected to be released in the coming days, would grant the Biden administration a new expulsion authority if average migrant encounters exceed 4,000 a day across a one-week window, according to a source familiar with the negotiations.

If crossings exceed 5,000 daily per week or 8,500 in a single day, the authority would be triggered automatically, with the Department of Homeland Security forced to turn away immigrants with limited exceptions. […]

So, if the number of border crossings exceeds an average of 4000 a day, then Biden CAN start expelling people?  (What if he doesn’t want to?)   We’ll still have an average of 4000 more lawbreakers per day (or more) in the country than we had. 

By the way, what does junior senator Ted BUrrDD have to say about his friend Thom’s hijinks?
