Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) has quickly become a favorite of conservatives across the country as a freshman lawmaker due to his laudable and heroic military record, but his voting record in Congress does not measure up. He is more John McCain than Donald Trump when it comes to matters of public policy.
Crenshaw proved this yet again after he voted in favor of a Democrat-backed bill that passed by a 272 to 158 margin in the House yesterday to potentially allow millions of third-world Venezuelan socialists to be granted Temporary Protected Status (TPS) in the United States.
Crenshaw joined House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (R-MN) to support H.R. 549, a measure that would open up the flood gates by giving asylum to Venezuelan migrants who have supported socialist dictators in their home country for decades. The Trump administration is firmly against the legislation.
“We would not want to open the floodgates for them,” an administration official told Breitbart News. “The Vice President, the National Security Council, and the President all share the same position, which was articulated by Ambassador [John] Bolton over the weekend, which is our priority is that Juan Guaido be elevated into power and [Nicolas] Maduro leave.”
The Trump administration is currently trying to revoke the TPS status for 300,000 Central American migrants, proving that this status is only temporary until the migrants arrive on U.S. shores. This problem may get a lot worse in the near future, thanks to Crenshaw and the Democrats supporting this legislation.
A strong conservative lawmaker, Freedom Caucus member Mo Brooks (R-AL), tore the bill to shreds while speaking on the House floor:
This bill proposes a tsunami of people coming to our country who are ill-equipped to support themselves. And, let’s put that into the perspective of where we are a nation. We just blew through the $22 trillion debt mark earlier this year. This year, we are looking at a roughly $900 billion deficit. A deal that has been reached that will only increase our deficit by $2 trillion over the next two years pushing our debt up to $22 trillion. This is money we do not have, have to borrow to get, and cannot afford to pay back.
How does that relate to H.R. 549? Well, let me share some numbers with you. Sixty percent of households with a lawful immigrant in them are on welfare, living off the hard work of others. Seventy percent of illegal alien households are on welfare, living off the hard work of others here in the United States of America.
The same effort in the Senate is being spearheaded by ‘Little’ Marco Rubio (R-FL), who is allying with 23 Democratic Senators urging Trump to worsen the immigration problem immeasurably.
“Granting TPS to Venezuela is a concrete measure your Administration can immediately take to alleviate the suffering of innocent Venezuelan civilians and to demonstrate our nation’s commitment to supporting a safe democratic transition in Venezuela so that individuals can safely return home soon,” the senators wrote in a letter addressed to President Trump.
Crenshaw also betrayed President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda earlier this month when he voted in favor of legislation that would reward visa abuse and vastly expand professional employment green cards for immigrants primarily from India to provide cheap labor to multinational corporations.
Josh Hawley Introduces Resolution Against China’s New National Security Law to Punish Hong Kong
Hawley is focusing intently on the red menace.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) introduced a resolution on Thursday to oppose China’s new national security law meant to punish Hong Kong and quash their ongoing rebellion against the totalitarian communist state.
— Josh Hawley (@HawleyMO) May 21, 2020
Hawley has long been an advocate of Hong Kong freedom protesters throughout their struggle against Chinese tyranny, which has been sidelined in large part due to the ever-so-convenient Wuhan virus outbreak. Hawley visited Hong Kong last year to talk to the people on the ground and gave a rousing floor speech highlighting their historic struggle.
He said during his speech: “I want to share something that the reverend Chu Yiu-ming said about liberty about democracy. He says it so beautifully. These are his words: “We strive for democracy because democracy strives for freedom and equality and universal love. Political freedom is more than loyalty to a state. Political freedom professes human dignity. Every single person living in a community possesses unique potentials and unique powers capable of making a unique contribution to society.”’
“That’s extraordinary and he’s exactly right, and Hongkonger’s know it, and that’s what they’re standing for, and that’s what they’re fighting for,” Hawley added. “And, Mr. President, the people of Hong Kong deserve our support, and they are depending on our support.”
China announced yesterday that they were passing a edict meant to crush dissent in Hong Kong, with no input allowed from the city itself. China has paid lip service regarding Hong Kong’s autonomy for decades, but they are now removing the facade completely.
“Beijing has opted for the most risky route,” said Ho-Fung Hung, who works as a professor of international relations for Johns Hopkins University. “It will show the world that ‘one country, two systems’ is, if not already over, almost over.”
“It will be very difficult for anyone, especially the United States, to say Hong Kong is still autonomous and viable,” Hung added.
China is denying that they are taking control over Hong Kong and putting out communist propaganda that their Draconian power-grab will actually improve relations.
“We will ensure the long-term stability of ‘one country, two systems,’ ” said Wang Yang, leader of the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, which convenes every year to advise the Chinese government.
“We will continue to support the improvement of the implementation of the systems and mechanisms of the constitution and Basic Law,” he added.
It is unlikely that anyone is willing to believe the Chinese lip service at this point. Hawley is also calling on the globalist United Nations to pass a resolution condemning China’s behavior as well.
