Tea Party Leader: House GOP Finally Listening on Border

By    |   Friday, 01 August 2014 04:43 PM EDT

Conservative lawmakers have put pressure on House Speaker John Boehner to add items to the emergency border security measure so conservatives in Congress can support it, and tea party leader Jenny Beth Martin says that the House leadership is finally listening.

"What I'm seeing this morning from Capitol Hill and this afternoon is that finally the House leadership is paying attention to what the conservatives want," Martin told Ed Berliner on "MidPoint" on Newsmax TV Friday.

"They're going back and they're modifying the supplemental bill," she explained.

However, the president and co-founder of Tea Party Patriots says that "we will see what comes in the language" to see if they are actually listening to conservative lawmakers such as Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Jeff Sessions of Alabama as well as Reps. Michelle Bachman of Minnesota, Steve King of Iowa, and Louie Gohmert of Texas.

Cruz and the other lawmakers have said that the immigration bill needs to bring an end to the Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) program, which was an executive order signed by President Barack Obama in 2012. Many have cited DACA as one of the causes of the latest influx of immigrant minors. 

"The DACA language that Senator Cruz wrote is very strong language," Martin said. "We'd like that attached to the supplemental bill."

"We also want to make sure the governors in the border states are able to call up the National Guard and that they have control of the National Guard and the ability to call it up and it isn't the federal government doing that," she added.
