GOP Pass Bill To Empower ICE To Deport Illegal Immigrants In Democrat Controlled House

edited March 4 in General
Not a Blue House after all.

The Grand Old Party aka the Republicans won a major Victory in the house by passing a law that gives Immigration & Custom Enforcement more authority to deport more illegals by passing a law that requires the National instant criminal background check to report illegals who buy gun To ICE which will make the decision to deport illegals if they bought guns.

From The Daily Wire: "Republicans offered an amendment to a broader gun background check bill to have the National Instant Criminal Background Check System report them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which could then decide if it wants to pick them up for deportation," The Washington Times explains. "The amendment was approved on a 220-209 vote, with 26 Democrats joining the GOP in support. Only one Republican voted against it."

Democrats joined Republicans and voted "YES" to give ICE more power. Ironic thing is these democrats got elected becaUse they promised to get rid of ICE and abolish it.

Here is the names of Democrats who voted with The GOP to empower ice. MAGA

  • House votes to notify ICE when illegal immigrants try to buy guns

    Republicans scored a rare victory in the Democrat-controlled House Wednesday, winning a vote to have authorities notify deportation officers any time an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun.

    It’s illegal for those in the country without legal status to have firearms, but an average of more than 10 a day try anyway.

    Republicans offered an amendment to a broader gun background check bill to have the National Instant Criminal Background Check System report them to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which could then decide if it wants to pick them up for deportation.

    The amendment was approved on a 220-209 vote, with 26 Democrats joining the GOP in support. Only one Republican voted against it.

    Rep. Doug Collins, Georgia Republican, said it was a chance for Democrats to prove they really did want to get tough on stopping guns from going to those who are supposed to be banned buyers.

    “If you vote ‘No,’ you are allowing someone who should not have a firearm to get away with it and not be prosecuted for it,” he said.

    But Rep. David Cicilline, Rhode Island Democrat, called the vote a sham.

    He said he’s working on another bill that would have local law enforcement investigate anyone who tries to obtain a gun when they’re on the banned-buyer list.

    There are a dozen general categories of banned buyers. The most prominent reason for denying a gun purchase is someone is a convicted criminal. Fugitives, those under indictment, drug addicts and domestic violence cases are also reasons, along with being an illegal immigrant.

    In 2016, 3,076 illegal immigrants had their gun purchases rejected. The number reached 3,569 in 2017.

    Wednesday’s vote was the second time this month the House GOP has used the parliamentary tactic known as a “motion to recommit” to win an amendment to a bill.

    Nancy Pelosi is not so Happy
  • Pelosi Threatens Moderate Democrats for Voting With GOP on Procedural Votes

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) told moderate Democrats during a closed-door meeting on Thursday to stop siding with Republicans on procedural votes, saying they could become a lower priority for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in 2020.

    Pelosi met with the Democratic Caucus behind closed doors to discuss recent procedural votes that exposed the divisions within the party, according to two individuals who spoke to Politico. Since the Democrats took over the House last month, Republicans have won two motions to recommit, including a Wednesday vote that angered progressives, Politico reported
    :
    The latest defeat came on Wednesday, as the House debated legislation requiring background checks on all gun sales — a position overwhelmingly favored by Democrats. When Republicans moved to amend the bill to require Immigration and Customs Enforcement be told of any undocumented immigrant who tries to buy a gun, 26 Democrats voted with the GOP. The language was added to the gun bill, spoiling an important Democratic legislative achievement.

    An earlier GOP motion condemning anti-Semitism was successfully attached to a House resolution barring U.S. involvement in the Yemeni civil war. That maneuver, which was backed by every Democrat, later caused parliamentary problems in the Senate and upended Democratic attempts to challenge President Donald Trump's foreign policy.

    During Thursday's meeting, Pelosi warned Democrats who voted with Republicans on the latest motion to recommit, saying, "This is not a day at the beach. This is the Congress of the United States." In retaliation for voting with Republicans, Pelosi said the DCCC could treat their 2020 races as a low priority, although Democratic lawmakers and aides told Politico they don't think this will become a reality. In response to Pelosi's warning, freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.), who has become a vocal progressive voice, told Pelosi she could alert activists when Democrats vote with Republicans.

  • The GOP who are the minority in congress got the majority democrats to vote yes on a bill that gives Trump more leeway and more room to deport illegal immigrants.

    The GOP as we can see is united as a party and as a movement and are acting as one to implement the Republican President (Trumps) Domestic policy to curve illegal immigration in the US. The other side, Democrats are all out for themselves. Always trying to see who make the headlines and trying to appease their voters. They may have control of the house but they are not united as a cohesive party like the GOP.
