Check Out the Spineless Republicans Who Voted for the Minimum Wage Hike

Published

on

Three House Republicans voted with Democrats to raise the federal minimum wage to $15. This move will ensure that low-skilled workers remain unemployed and compel many companies to embrace automation much faster if this bill is passed into law.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claimed that the passage of this bill is “about workers, it’s about their economic and financial security, and today is a bright day because it affects so many people in our country.”

The three Republicans who voted for the minimum wage hike were:

Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick

New Jersey Rep. Chris Smith

Curiously, Brian Fitzpatrick and Chris Smith voted for H.R. 8, the universal gun registration bill, earlier in February. This bill represents the largest expansion of gun control at the federal level since the Brady Act was passed in the 1990s.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Fitzpatrick and Smith voted for The American Dream and Promise Act, a mass amnesty bill that would shield illegal immigrants from deportation and give millions a pathway to permanent citizenship.

These votes show that there are still Republicans in Congress that will betray their conservative constituents by voting for leftist legislation. Grassroots activists should remember these names during primary season. Bad political behavior should never be rewarded and should always be met with grassroots pushback.

These Republican districts deserve conservative alternatives that will help President Donald Trump advance his America First agenda.

U.S. Law Enforcement Bust 27 People Connected to Mexican Sinaloa Cartel

Published

on

Over two dozen people were arrested on drug charges in connection to a Mexican cartel smuggling cocaine into the U.S. Following a two-year investigation, 27 people were arrested through Operation Tripwire, an investigation effort U.S. officials have been working on featuring members of the Sinaloa Cartel.

The trafficking network went from Los Angeles, California to Tucson, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where cocaine originating from Mexico was smuggled stateside. The United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania, Scott Brady declared “this is a large organization that was trafficking hundreds of kilograms of cocaine throughout the country and has direct ties to the Sinaloa cartel in Mexico.”

U.S. authorities recounted that the investigations started after an agent in Pittsburgh was able to identify an address that received large quantities of suspicious-looking packages coming from California. Since then, agents started to do investigation on other members of the network across the U.S.

Across the span of seven months, authorities were able to intercept U.S. calls made by some of the alleged traffickers with Sinaloa carte leaders in Mexico. On September 9, 2020, 27 were arrested in Arizona, California, and Pennsylvania.

According to American authorities, $1.3 million in cash and over 140 kilograms of cocaine were seized. The aforementioned people arrested are now facing a prison sentence of between 10 years and life in prison.

The border situation is no joke. Prior administrations have largely neglected the issue and have allowed for unprecedented levels of illegal immigration and drug trafficking to cross the U.S. border.

In a prior instance, BLP reported on how Mexico is a failed state that cannot maintain public order and is largely being pushed around by cartels. Due to its proximity to the U.S., Mexico’s problems will likely spillover stateside.

This is why border security is crucial. Thankfully, the U.S. has a president in Donald Trump that gets the memo. He’ll still need help from Congress, however,

That’s why it’s crucial that America First Republicans have strong showings at all branches of government in 2020.
