Democrats’ New Bloated Omnibus Spending Spree Includes $500 Million for JORDANIAN BORDER SECURITY
The Twitterverse has been abuzz this week, at least a little bit, with tweets from people who understand that impeachment isn’t the only thing Congress is trying to push through. There are actually other topics to talk about! I know! Crazy, right?!

Congress proposed their omnibus spending bill on Monday while everyone was, and still is, focused on the impeachment proceedings for President Donald Trump.


Two things in particular those on Twitter noticed in the omnibus spending bill: 1) the new bill includes “up to $500,000,000 to “enhance” border security…in Jordan. 2) The bill allocates $4.2 billion of taxpayer money the “Afghanistan Security Forces Fund.”

You read that correctly. And the kicker of it is that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are slated to receive just over $1.9 billion, $2.3 billion less than what Afghanistan security forces would receive under the new omnibus. That $1.9 billion includes nearly $1.4 billion for “the construction of barrier system along the southwest border,” according to the bill.
