The same party that wants to confiscate guns from law-abiding Americans and send them to prison feels very different when it comes to illegal aliens. Not only don’t they want them to get deported, but they also want to give them amnesty if they are Dreamers.
The Republicans offered an amendment that would require deportation, but the Democrats blocked that amendment. But they probably would have approved of deporting Americans for the same offense. The Democrats have served notice that they are officially the party of illegal aliens, but Americans be damned. It makes sense though because the illegals will do things Americans won’t, like voting for Democrats.
House Democrats voted down an amendment Wednesday to prevent gun offenders from getting amnesty status under the DREAM Act.
The amendment was put forward by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
Gaetz tweeted, “Democrats voted down my amendment to prevent gun offenders from receiving amnesty status under the DREAM Act.” He noted the irony, “Democrats vote to give green cards to illegal immigrants who commit gun crimes, while they try to restrict American citizens’ right to bear arms.”
This refusal to block gun offenders from amnesty status is in line with other security measures the Democrats have rejected since taken control of the House. On February 18, 2019, Breitbart News reported rejected a Republican proposal to alert U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) if an illegal alien is discovered via a background check for a firearm.
Ironically, they rejected the proposal to alert ICE during their push to criminalize private gun sales for Americans via universal background checks.
