Late Thursday night, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives passed a funding bill that includes the $5 billion President Trump wants for the border wall.
The bill now heads to the Senate, also controlled by the GOP.
Shouldn’t be an issue, right?
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) promised no money for the wall, but she’s not in charge yet.
House votes 217-185 to approve funding bill that includes $5.7-billion for border wall and $7.8-billion for disaster relief. Bill now goes to the Senate, which has adjourned for the day until noon Friday. Partial government shutdown deadline is midnight Friday.

THE DRAMA KEEPS ON COMIN. House of Representatives passes funding bill *with* $5 billion of border wall funding by a vote of 217-185
It's now kicked back to the Senate, who passed the bill without wall funding. Pre-christmas shutdown happens if they can't reach a deal

In case you forgot what the migrant caravan is up to, here’s your reminder.
Spoiler alert: there’s zero respect for the rule of law.
From AP News:
A steady trickle of Central American migrants have been finding ways to climb over, tunnel under or slip through the U.S. border wall to plant their feet on U.S. soil and ask for asylum.
In recent weeks, Honduran migrant Joel Mendez fed his 8-month-old son, Daniel, before handing him over to his partner, Yesenia Martinez, who had crawled through a hole in the rain-softened soil under the wall.
WATCH below and see a man stuffing his three-year-old kid under the wall:
A 19-year-old pregnant Honduran scaled the border wall recently.
24 hours later she gave birth to her anchor baby, an American citizen.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. – A Honduran woman is believed to be the first member of the migrant caravan to have a child in the United States after scaling the border wall with her family and giving birth within 24 hours.
Vice President Mike Pence said the migrant caravans were funded by leftist groups. The MSM didn’t blink.
Remember the story about the female Honduran migrant who was not happy with the free food she was served in Mexico?
She said it was for pigs.
Let’s jog your memory…
From Daily Caller:
Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. A reporter asked one of the migrants how the living conditions were in the camp. The woman complained about the food she had been given in the camp, calling it food for “pigs” and saying she would “die of hunger” if she did not eat it.
“The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible. Look at what they’re giving us. Refried beans, as if they were feeding the pigs. And the truth is, we don’t have any other options. If we don’t eat this, we will die of hunger.“

Funny enough, that same woman has now been spotted eating at a restaurant in Dallas, Texas.
How is that possible?
When everyone wondered where Mirian Celaya is, the Honduran migrant who despised Mexican beans, she was already crossing to the US.
And in the last hours have circulated videos of the Honduran controversy with his sister, celebrating his arrival in the ‘American dream’.
Residents of Tijuana, Mexico collectively uttered the three words Democrats hate hearing:
Trump was right.
They are referring to the migrant caravans that made their way to Mexico from Central America hoping to get into America.
When Trump said the caravan was an invasion, he was spot on.

In the video below courtesy of Fox News it becomes more clear:
President Trump might need to send even more members of the military to the southern border.

Reporting on the caravan, Univision’s Jorge Ramos said the migrants were harmless.
There’s no doubt that Jorge is right. Most people in the caravan are harmless.
But all it takes is one to be not harmless and people end up losing their lives.
Check out a caravan marcher flashing “gang signs” behind Ramos:

A migrant in the caravan tells a Fox News reporter that he fled Honduras because he "got in trouble."

Here’s another wild clip from a migrant admitting there are “criminals everywhere” in the caravan, “it’s criminals in here.”
