Senators Josh Hawley and Marco Rubio blistered Democrats for the Democrats’ inactions on immigration policy. Sen. Hawley blistered Democrats during a hearing in the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, saying “Until this wretched Congress decides to do something, I don’t know why we even bother to have these hearings. I don’t know why it even matters because this Congress will not act.”

This is the net effect of the Resist Movement. No House Democrat dares defy that movement for fear of getting primaried. Democrats have waved the white flag of surrender to the Resist Movement. Democrats put activists and ideology first. Far too many Democrats won’t put America first. That’s why it’s virtually impossible to fix problems. Fear of the Resist movement is stopping the passage of a bill that would fix our asylum system and close the multiple loopholes in our immigration laws.

When Republicans highlight these things during the general election campaign, the people will take it out on Democrats. Democrats promised solutions. They haven’t delivered on those promises. The bills that they passed wouldn’t fix problems.

UPDATE: House Democrats caved on the emergency funding bill for DHS:

House Democrats will vote Thursday on a clean Senate-passed bill to address the border crisis, marking a blow to Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and liberal members who had demanded additional protections for migrant children.

House Democrats are still in trouble because Pelosi and her far-left ideologues had to be dragged kicking and screaming to support the Senate’s bipartisan bill.

This is my I-told-you-so moment:

“There’s a feeling in the room that the bipartisan Senate vote … leaves the House will very little room to negotiate,” said a Democratic lawmaker in the Pelosi meeting.

Here’s proof that House Democrats had to be dragged kicking and screaming to vote for the bipartisan Senate bill:

While liberal members wanted to put restrictions back in the Senate bill, members were running up against a deadline with the July 4 recess about to begin. In explaining her decision, Pelosi cited the urgent need to get funding to help children caught in the humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

Let’s be clear about this. The AOC-Bernie-Elizabeth Warren wing of the Democratic Party is fuming over Ms. Pelosi’s decision. That’s why over 100 House Democrats voted against appropriating money for beds for children. For them, they wanted to totally restrict President Trump. That was more important to them than helping children.

How sad!
