    Government Funding & Border Security with Congressman Chip Roy | Saturday Extra

    enSeptember 23, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Congress debates priorities ahead of government shutdown deadlineRepublicans in Congress are pushing for conservative priorities, including securing the southern border and checking an out-of-control executive branch. They believe using the power of the purse is necessary to address issues like the border crisis, fentanyl poisoning, and sex trafficking.

      The upcoming government shutdown deadline has Republicans in Congress pushing for conservative priorities, particularly securing the southern border and checking an out-of-control executive branch. Texas Congressman Chip Roy emphasized the importance of using the power of the purse granted by the founders to force change and address issues like the border crisis, which he sees as the tip of the spear of necessary changes. He highlighted the urgent need to address the influx of migrants, fentanyl poisoning, and sex trafficking, among other concerns. Ultimately, Roy believes it's their duty to force the president to the table and extract change, rather than continuing to fund a government that isn't effectively addressing these critical issues.

    • Republicans Debate Proposed Bill for Border Security and Federal SpendingDespite disagreements among Republicans, a proposed bill for border security and federal spending has widespread agreement and is seen as a crucial first step towards securing the border and reducing spending, but lacks enough votes to pass.

      There is ongoing debate among Republicans in Congress regarding a proposed bill to fund the government while securing the border and cutting federal spending. The proposal, which includes funding for the military, a defense bill, and acceptance of HR 2 for border security, has widespread agreement among different factions within the GOP. However, some conservatives argue that it does not go far enough. Despite this disagreement, the speaker believes that this bill is a crucial first step towards securing the nation's border and reducing federal spending. Unfortunately, there are not yet enough votes to pass the bill, and it remains to be seen whether enough support will materialize. Overall, the Republican-led House aims to lead on this issue and force the Biden administration and Senate Democrats to address the open border and out-of-control spending.

    • Republicans propose 8% budget cut for non-defense programsRepublicans plan to cut 8% from non-defense government funding, maintaining support for veterans and defense.

      Republicans are pushing for a unified message and a strong border policy, and are considering an 8% across-the-board cut in funding for non-defense, non-veteran government programs as a negotiating tactic. This would result in a 1% overall cut and an 8% reduction for non-defense bureaucracy, while maintaining funding for veterans and defense. Additionally, there is a growing consensus among Republicans to continue funding Ukraine, but only after ensuring the European Union contributes and accounting for previously spent funds. The proposed legislation would only include Ukraine funding within the defense operations bill, and would also address issues such as abortion tourism, transgender surgery, and critical race theory within the Department of Defense.

    • Debate over Ukraine Funding vs Border SecurityThe Secure the Border Act aims to address border security by empowering DHS to stop releases, changing exploited laws, and forcing administration to follow new asylum laws. It sets narrow criteria for asylum claims and requires individuals to wait in Mexico or detention instead of parole or notices to appear.

      There is ongoing debate in Congress regarding the allocation of funds for Ukraine and border security. While some believe that continued funding for Ukraine is necessary, others argue that it's not in the best interest of the US, especially considering the lack of attention to border security. Regarding the latter, the Secure the Border Act aims to address this issue by empowering DHS to stop releasing people into the US, changing laws that have been exploited, and forcing the administration to follow newly passed laws regarding asylum claims and detention. The bill also sets narrow criteria for making determinations about asylum claims and requires individuals to wait in Mexico or be held in detention instead of being released under parole or notices to appear. In essence, the Secure the Border Act aims to stop releases and force the administration to enforce immigration laws.

    • Texas Congressman Chip Roy supports Biden impeachment inquiryRoy believes inquiry necessary to understand Biden's business dealings, acknowledges challenges without DOJ support, and highlights potential abuse of power

      Texas Congressman Chip Roy strongly supports the ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Joe Biden, citing concerns over potential abuse of power regarding Hunter Biden's business dealings. Roy believes that the inquiry is necessary to fully understand the financial transactions and establish where funds from foreign governments ended up. He acknowledges the challenges of conducting investigations without the full support of the Department of Justice and commends the efforts of Jamie Comer and the Oversight Committee. The allegations of clear abuse of office, using the Bidens to demonstrate access and receive funds from foreign governments, necessitate further exploration.
