Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) gave a troubling response after being asked about the Hart-Cellar Act of 1965 indicating that he is completely unfamiliar with the legislation that changed U.S. demographics and set the nation down the path toward socialism.
While appearing in a remote interview with the Leadership Institute, Crenshaw demonstrated his ignorance on the issue of immigration.
“I didn’t get a chance to look into the Act that you’re talking about, but I understand the concept,” Crenshaw said after he was asked about Hart-Cellar.
“There’s obviously a very decent argument to be made that we are reading too much into the 14th Amendment to assume that everybody who is just born here should just be a citizen,” he added. “I think if we were to do it all over again, we wouldn’t have that rule. I think we all know that.”
Although Crenshaw admits that there are major problems with birthright citizenship, he makes it abundantly clear that he is in no rush to correct the situation.
“We have many, many other priorities before we get to the birthright citizenship issue,” he said.
“Reforming immigration in general to a more merit-based system is a much bigger priority I think,” Crenshaw added.

This isn’t the first time that Crenshaw has displayed himself to be a neophyte on immigration. Big League Politics reported last year on Crenshaw’s humanitarian push to potentially bring in millions of third-world migrants from a socialist nation:
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.
Crenshaw is yet again leading conservatives away from “America First” immigration policies back toward the pre-Trump neocon status quo.
WTH: Arizona Border Patrol Agent Arrested, Charged With Drug Trafficking
He was allegedly working with the drug smugglers.
A Customs and Border Patrol agent was arrested and federally charged with multiple counts of drug trafficking, conspiracy and distribution of controlled substances.
A Department of Justice charging document alleges that Carlos Victor Passapera Pinott, 53, of Buckeye, Arizona, transported two duffel bags containing heroin and fentanyl from the US-Mexico border to Phoenix Sky Harbor airport, where the drugs were handed off to another criminal operative.
Passapera is a Border Patrol agent assigned to the Tucson sector. The charging document details his alleged activities.
“On August 9, 2020, at approximately 3:15 AM, Passapera left his residence and drove south to a remote area of the border west of the Lukeville Port of Entry. Passapera then drove to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport, where he loaded two duffel bags into another vehicle. Law enforcement agents stopped the driver of that vehicle after it left the airport, and searched the duffel bags.
The bags contained multiple packages of substances that field tested positive for the characteristics of cocaine (21 kilograms), heroin (1 kilogram), and fentanyl (1 kilogram). The bags also contained approximately 350,000 pills. A sample from the pills field tested positive for the characteristics of fentanyl.”
Law enforcement took Passapera into custody on Sunday, and seized $329,000 from his residence and $40,000 from his vehicle.
Passapera, who is facing multiple drug trafficking charges, could face a maximum penalty of life in prison. Federal prosecutors conceivably won’t take kindly to a federal agent engaging in what is a de facto betrayal of the United States, using a position of power to advance the goals of those who seem to be affiliated with criminal drug cartel and trafficking organizations.
