The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has warned that the Office of Refugee Resettlement, operated by HHS, could run out of funds in weeks unless Congress approves the emergency funding they need to deal with the massive humanitarian crisis unfolding on our southern border. Last month, President Trump requested $4.5 billion in emergency funding to help fund HHS and ICE in dealing with the crisis.

In a surprising turn of events, Gregory Angelo, a gay conservative and former president of Log Cabin Republicans rallied 100 LGBT leaders to lobby Senate Republicans to vote AGAINST THE EQUALITY ACT. Angelo delivered his letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office earlier this month which resulted in a "very encouraging conversation."
Even as LGBT leaders oppose the Equality Act, this battle is just beginning! That's why, on Thursday morning, Grassfire is delivering our petition opposing the anti-faith Equality Act to Senate leadership ahead of their July 4 week-long recess.Read more
The Senate and House are expected to take up competing bills this week to provide $4.5 billion in emergency funding to help alleviate the massive humanitarian crisis on our southwest border. The Senate bill, as it's currently crafted, corresponds more closely with the Trump administration's request for funding. The House bill contains numerous "oversight" restrictions and major differences in allocations, as reported by TheHill.com:
"The House and Senate bills both provide the administration with more than $4.5 billion, including new money to help shore up a Health and Human Services (HHS) unaccompanied children program set to run out of money. But they split over the details, including money for the Pentagon, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP)."
The House bill does not include any Defense Department funding. It also doesn’t include $61 million to address a pay shortfall or $3.7 million in overtime costs for ICE. It also includes myriad restrictions on how funds can and cannot be used, and reinstates hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras after the administration slashed funding last week."Read more
The Senate and House Appropriations Committees have both approved $4.5 billion in emergency funding measures to help alleviate the massive humanitarian crisis on our southwest border. Both bills are scheduled to be voted on next week ahead of their July 4 recess.
The differences in the two measures are the way the funds are allocated. The Senate bill corresponds more closely with the Trump administration's requests. The Democrat-controlled House measure contains stringent oversight demands and allocates fewer dollars to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency that remains in the Democrats' cross hairs.Read more
Based on superstar Taylor Swift's video portrayal of people opposed to the Equality Act, Swift has maliciously judged millions of Americans who hold to certain biblical values as backward thinking buffoons and ignorant bigots. I'm sure she would've incorporated the word "deplorables" if it hadn't already been used.
Yet, here is what Taylor Swift and over 350,000 of her pro-Equality Act petition signers fail to understand – or simply choose to dismiss:
The Equality Act is not about equality! It’s government-imposed ideology and unfairness.Read more
The illegal invasion and Democrat obstruction has created a massive humanitarian crisis on the U.S. side of the border. President Trump has requested $4.5 billion in emergency funding to deal with this crisis while he continues to press for more border security to stop the flow of illegal immigration.
Yesterday, the GOP-led Senate Appropriations Committee approved the $4.5 billion in supplemental funding. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to have the full Senate vote on the bill next week before their July 4th recess. As a shot across the bow to Democrats, Leader McConnell said of the crisis and pending vote...Read more
The differences are stark between our nation's two dominant political parties ahead of the coming elections. President Trump just warned, "No matter what label they use, a vote for any Democrat in 2020 is a vote for the rise of radical socialism and the destruction of the American dream.”
In his vision for America, "Our future has never, ever looked brighter or sharper." He floated a 2020 campaign slogan of "Keep America Great."
We want to let the President know that tens of thousands of Americans are standing with him at this critical time. So we are launching a "Trump Team" Statement Of Support. Click here to add your name -- or click below for more details.Read more
President Trump is IN!
With his formal announcement last night in Orlando that he is running for a second term, President Trump has confirmed that he is willing to continue the fight to Make America Great Again.
Despite coming up against the greatest attacks from the political and media elite that any recent president has seen, President Trump is riding on through the Swamp and towards a second term. With President Trump's bold announcement, it's time to let the anti-Trump elites know where grassroots Americans stand!
Taylor Swift is doubling down on her Equality Act crusade.
Earlier today, the pop sensation with over 100 million followers on Facebook released a new song and music video as part of her crusade to get the Equality Act passed.
The video is full of cameos from a "Who's Who" of the LGBT movement, and the lyrics directly target anyone who dares to disagree with the radical same-sex agenda. As one commentator said, the video "not-so-subtly implies that anti-gay protestors are ignorant bigots who can’t spell."Read more
It's the nightmare that every parent fears.... the state comes and takes your child away from you.
Why? Because you refused to consent to your teenage child receiving sex-change therapies or having a sex-change operation!
The same child who is not old enough to VOTE, or serve in the military, or drink alcohol, or donate blood, or play the lottery, or buy cigarettes, or consent to sex with someone over 18, or get their ears pierced or a tattoo, or possibly even drive a car CAN HAVE A LIFE-ALTERING SEX CHANGE OPERATION WITHOUT PARENTAL KNOWLEDGE OR CONSENT!Read more
