Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI), the leading GOP cheerleader for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, continues to subvert the rule of law with his quixotic voting record. Earlier today, he voted ‘no’ on a motion to deny green cards to gang members.
Republican lawmakers proposed a motion to amend the DREAM Act to permit the use of federal and state databases to deny green cards to individuals known for gang activity.
Even 10 Democrats – Brindisi of New York, Craig of Minnesota, Cunningham of South Carolina, Finkenauer of Iowa, Golden of Maine, Gottheimer of New Jersey, Harder of California, Horn of Oklahoma, Slotkin of Michigan, and Van Drew of New Jersey – crossed party lines to vote for the common sense measure.
Amash was the only Republican to stand with the Democrats to ensure that gang members could more easily become U.S. citizens. The motion to amend ultimately failed by a 202-221 margin.

This news should come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with Amash’s voting record. He has opposed Kate’s Law and banning federal funds to sanctuary cities, opposed Trump’s emergency measures declaration at the border, and opposed a resolution against illegals in the voting booth.
I voted against a motion to amend a bill to criticize San Francisco for letting non-citizens vote in school board elections. I voted no because I’m a constitutionalist who opposes such federal interference in LOCAL elections. Non-citizens have voted locally since our founding.

Amash’s votes in favor of illegal immigration underscore the point made by House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) about the Congressman’s brazenly Democratic allegiances.
“He’s been in Congress quite some time,” McCarthy said of Amash. “I think he’s only ever asked one question in all the committees that he’s been in. He votes more with Nancy Pelosi than he ever votes with me. It’s a question whether he’s even in our Republican Conference as a whole.”
It may be even worse than McCarthy described, as Amash has staked out a position on impeachment further Left than even House Majority Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Amash’s position to impeach Trump even though he was ultimately cleared of any Russian collusion in the Mueller Report is more along the line of socialist Islamic Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN), the new anti-American extremists of the radicalized Democratic Party.
You are putting country first, and that is to be commended. We both took an oath to uphold the U.S. Constitution. Please let me know if you are interested signing on to the resolution to begin the investigation into impeachment. https://t.co/f5CT3uB81d

While Amash may be relishing positive press from the fake news and praise from the ‘Never Trump’ resistance, his conservative western Michigan constituents are enraged by his frequent betrayals.
A grassroots ‘Squash Amash’ rally is scheduled to take place on Friday, June 14 at 11:30am outside of his office in Grand Rapids, MI.
College Republican National Committee Flips Out After School Chapters Join Immigration Moratorium Coalition
The College Republican establishment is not happy about this.
The College Republican National Committee (CRNC) is enraged after several university chapters signed onto a letter calling for an end to temporary worker programs in the U.S. due the toll that the coronavirus pandemic has taken on the national economy.
College Republican leaders delivered the letter to the White House last week, urging Trump to put a moratorium on immigration policies that are jeopardizing the demographic integrity of the country.
“[W]e ask you to immediately take action to rescind the work authorization of hundreds of thousands of foreign, nonimmigrant skilled guest workers in order to ease the economic suffering of American college students and recent graduates looking for meaningful employment in these trying times,” the coalition wrote in their letter.
Over 25 College Republican and Young Republican groups signed onto the letter, which demonstrated how the “America First” movement is guiding and influencing conservative youth.
“These guest workers — and especially those in the OPT and H- 1B programs — take jobs temporarily at wages far below the average for their positions. This is because employers can easily pay these guest workers less than they pay Americans,” the letter stated.
“This is not right,” the letter added, calling for the H-1B program to be suspended and the OPT program to be shuttered permanently.
The letter has not come without consequences, as the CRNC has reportedly expressed displeasure with chapters that signed onto the coalition. Big League Politics has reported on how establishment forces within the College Republicans have conducted a witch hunt against Trump-style nationalists, harbored homosexual predators within their ranks, sided with ANTIFA terrorists against pro-Trump students, and committed other atrocious behavior to undermine the conservative cause.
Gavin Wax, a Fox News contributor who serves as President of the New York Young Republican Club, was instrumental in putting together the coalition. He believes that the letter represents the ascending movement within conservatism, and the push-back cannot stop the momentum that has coalesced behind this coalition with Trump in the White House.
“It is great to see young conservative leaders from across the country uniting to promote a common sense proposal to defend the American worker and our national sovereignty. We cannot continue to keep the gates open as working-class Americans struggle to provide for their own families,” Wax told Big League Politics.
“It is a shame that this position has not been readily adopted by more organizations and their national affiliations. We are thankful for the work FAIR and Michelle Malkin have done to advance this issue forward,” he added.
Big League Politics will continue to hold the College Republicans accountable as the establishment desperately tries to fend off the rising “America First” movement.
