Impeachment Cheerleader Justin Amash Wants to Give Green Cards to Violent Gang Members
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.
