    Dems Were Asked to Support the Deportation of Illegal Immigrants Convicted of Violenc

    Dems Were Asked to Support the Deportation of Illegal Immigrants Convicted of Violence and Sexual Abuse. Here’s How They Voted

    Jan. 14, 2015 1:03pm Pete Kasperowicz

    Dozens of House Democrats on Wednesday voted against a legislative proposal aimed at ensuring that illegal immigrants convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse or child abuse are a priority for deportation.

    The vote suggests that immigration-related issues trump other traditional Democratic priorities, such as efforts to protect people from sex or violence-related crimes, especially against women.

    Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) proposed the language as an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security spending bill. He argued it was needed because Obama’s executive action on immigration created different priorities for deportation that need to be adjusted.

    For example, illegal immigrants suspected of terrorism or espionage or other felonies are top priorities for deportation. But illegal immigrants who are convicted of three or more misdemeanors, or one “significant” misdemeanor such as sexual abuse or domestic violence, are on a second tier priority for deportation.

    On Wednesday, House Republicans put forward the DeSantis amendment to prioritize the deportation of illegal immigrants convicted of domestic violence, sexual abuse or child abuse. But they were met by significant Democratic opposition, including from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who is widely seen as a champion of women’s issues.

    Pelosi explained that she opposed the amendment because it was opposed by the National Catholic Conference of Bishops. That group said generally that it opposed all efforts to stop the Obama administration from implementing its immigration plan, and that it could somehow create obstacles to the reporting of domestic violence among immigrants.

    “While presented as a measure that helps domestic violence victims, we fear that it actually would discourage many such victims from reporting abuse,” the group wrote, in a letter Pelosi read on the House floor.

    Rep. Donna Edwards (D-Md.) also explained that in many domestic violence cases involving illegal immigrants, police arrest both the abuser and the victim, and both can end up pleading to a misdemeanor just to speed up the process. “This happens all the time, all around the country,” she argued.

    As a result, she said the GOP language could end up hurting victims as well as abusers.

    Those arguments were met with disbelief from Rep. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.), who sponsored the amendment. DeSantis said he was “perplexed” why anyone would vote against the amendment.

    “Why would we have any tolerance for child molesters?” Desalts said. “If you’re not in our country legally, and you get convicted of an offense like that, you should be gone. We shouldn’t even be discussing this.”

    “I think the people who are going to vote ‘no’ on this are basically saying, ‘we don’t want a zero-tolerance policy against child molesters and sexual offenders,’ ” he added.

    In the end, the House approved the DeSantis amendment 278-149 vote. Thirty-five Democrats voted with Republicans on this measure, and one Republican voted against it.

    But that left 148 Democrats voting against it. Below are all the “no” votes on the DeSantis amendment — all but one of them, Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-N.C.), are Democrats:

    I understand your being perplexed, but I think that's only because you don't yet understand why any politician supports any illegal alien. It's because there's no way for them to know which ones work for the drug cartels. Imagine how upset their drug cartel buddies will be if they pass a law that results in the deportation of one of the millions of these people who were sent here by the cartels and work for the cartels running their illegal drug operations and other illegal enterprises.

    To help you figure it out, when a set of politicians, regardless of party, put the well-being of lawbreakers in our country in violation of every immigration law on the books above the well-being of US citizens, lawbreakers who sign up for welfare we can't afford, who sent their kids to public schools for seats that aren't even funded, who boldly in the sunlight, not in the shadows, brazenly march and rally and protest against the laws they're breaking, which they can do because no one puts them in jail or deports them, who take college seats away from American Kids, who seem to always have cash in their pockets, big rolls of it, who have new cars and big trucks on their purportedly low wages, one must realize they aren't just living on their low wages and welfare, oh no, they're living on their low wages, welfare and drug money. And do so as if they own the place.

    These are a protected class of people, a new caste system, where foreign lawbreakers have more rights and privileges than American Citizens, because the people ultimately responsible for seeing that they're arrested, jailed and deported, are all on the take with the cartels, and there are thousands of these cartels from all over the world involved in the drug business along with many other types of illegal businesses that need a separate protected class of persons to perpetuate the enterprises here. When you consider the largess of these cartels, the power and money they have, it's a simple feat to buy up enough politicians to keep their caste protected. In the US Senate you need 41 to stop Congress. In the Executive Branch, you just need 1. In the courts, maybe a dozen total. So thousands of cartels running tens of thousands of illegal businesses with over $300 billion in the drug trade alone, it's not hard to see how that works and works so well. And no one talks, no one snitches, no one rats 'em out, because, well, it wouldn't be head-wise to do so.

    And your bill exposes them as well as any bill could.
