McSally votes for border security, Sinema votes against it

WASHINGTON, D.C. —   Arizona’s freshmen U.S. senators, Kyrsten Sinema and Martha McSally, split on the issue of border security.

Sinema, a Democrat, rejected President Trump’s compromise offer. McSally, a Republican, approved the president’s proposal.

The Senate held two votes on opposing plans to end the government shutdown.

“Today’s vote revealed two things – Kyrsten Sinema is a ‘no’ on compromise and a guaranteed ‘yes’ for Chuck Schemer,” said Renae Eze, Republican National Committee spokeswoman. “Sinema had a chance today to support Arizonans and federal workers by ending the government shutdown while securing our border, and she threw it all away simply to resist President Trump. Apparently Sinema is too busy running marathons to represent Arizonans.”

The Republican bill would have reopened government, and funded President Donald Trump’s border wall. The bill also offered temporary deportation protections for DREAMERs, those who were brought over as children by illegal immigrants, and provided disaster aid. The bill received 50 votes. Senate rules require 60 votes for passage.

The Democratic bill would have reopened the federal government but provided no money for border security while providing $12.1 billion in disaster aid. It received 52 votes.

  1. Odds are I won’t be alive in 6 years. Odds are, it seems to me, that the way things are going, it will be far less stressful on my old heart. I was born in this state, will probably die in this state. I look back at watching it slide lower and lower, this scum being elected as a US Senator from Arizona is the lowest yet. She approached me and another Vet as we sat talking at the main Tucson VA, smiling, trying to look caring. When I told her to leave me alone, the look turned to the real scum she is, hating everything a Veteran stands for

    • Good for you, I was shaken by the mid term elections, I can believe some of the libtards that were elected.
      Thank you for your service ????????
      My state dodged the bullet even with the blatant voters fraud in the southern counties.

  2. “..providing $12.1 billion in disaster aid.” Define “disaster aid.” It probably doesn’t include any type of barrier, so it’s irrelevant.


    The rapes, human & sex trafficking, deaths by drugs or criminals don’t mean anything to people who have no problem murdering babies in the womb.

  4. She tried to present herself as an independent type, but shows she can only vote party line as instructed and now that she is at the trough to hell with the little people, she has it made!

  5. You get what you elect. Guess the border ILLEGALS are not doing any damage to the state and don’t bring diseases, stupidity, no labor skills, etc, etc, etc, to the state that the taxpayers have to foot the bills for. Good vote for her and Schumer, horrible vote for the state and nation, but then they don’t care.

    • She has flat out said she doesn’t like us, how she got elected is beyond me. All the bs with the early ballots certainly had to help her. The next 6 years will be an attack on our Arizona values. Looks like even ducey going to help her. Giving up the fight and letting illegals have drivers licenses ensures her and others future votes.

  6. AMAZING that people elected this idiot as well, she is another Cortez in a different wrapper. What in the hell…

  7. Dear Senator Sinema:

    Thanks for nothing. I’ll just sit around again today, not getting paid.
