It makes sense that a congressman from Chicago, Illinois would want to do everything humanly possible to cut down on the city’s gang problem. I’m not sure how he feels about gangbangers who are citizens, but Rep. Luis Gutierrez is certainly concerned about criminal alien gang members who could be removed if H.R.
At the beginning of the summer Attorney General Sessions announced the National Public Safety Partnership as a way to funnel even more federal crime-fighting money to violent cities. The program is a carrot for those that choose to fall in line with Trump administration policies on criminal aliens.
There are no Democratic cosponsors to H.R. 3004, but the House vote that gave approval to Kate’s Law shows that at least 24 Dems are willing to publicly place Americans first and illegal aliens second.
That’s not the case for most of their colleagues.
Fear-mongering over immigration was the best thing Democrats had going for them until they decided Russia was more important than domestic policy. A lot more fear was spread by angry lawmakers than anything that came from the White House. In fact, something has been going on behind the scenes that we don’t hear much about.
What do a death row inmate and a Democrat have in common? When the end is near they do unexpected things. Killers find God. Desperate Democrats worry about spending too much. That’s the kind of absurdity we are faced with as Congress fights over the Trump wall.
