The House of Representatives had a vote on ICE in a bid to put Democrats on the record. The Daily Caller reports:
House lawmakers voted for a resolution Wednesday that supports Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials and explicitly condemns Democrats’ calls to abolish the agency.
Members voted 244-35-133 Wednesday afternoon in favor of a resolution GOP Rep. Clay Higgins of Louisiana sponsored that both decries Democrats’ push to do away with ICE and calls for congressional support for the agency and its officials. Republicans brought the measure to the floor under an expedited procedure, known as suspension of the rules, which allowed the chamber to pass it with a two-third majority.
The majority of House Democrats — 133 — voted “present,” with the remainder split. Eighteen Democrats voted in favor the bill and 35 voted against it. One Republican, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, voted with Democrats against the bill.
Democrats voted “present” in protest of what they deemed a political stunt on the part of Republicans, who they claim have spent months failing to address the nation’s immigration problems, like the separation of children from their parents that immigrated to the U.S. illegally.
Democrats realized that actual opposition to ICE would kill them in the polls for the midterms, and they backed down.
Well the Republicans baited the Communist Party into taking a vote on Ice and lost, they didn’t vote and the many did to abolish Ice. Let one and all remember this in 2018 and more important in 2020.
The Communist Party is so outspoken everyone now can agree they are enemy number one. Chavez, Castro. Putin, good examples for them to follow.
Americans that don’t believe it can happen have their heads in the sand.
It is OK to be wrong, but it is not OK to stay wrong. Following these leaders to the Cliff to get free stuff or not have to work hard will encourage you to jump, brighter people will push the leaders over as they never intended to make the jump, just you. Think about it. In Communism the leaders are always rich and the people poor. I Capitalism there are Super Rich, Rich, almost Rich, moderately Rich, going to be Rich and non motivated or disabled people that need help. You are in control and you have a choice.
