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.
Biden’s Open Border Policies are a Magnet for Incoming Central American Caravans
The mother of all caravans is coming
Some things are simply too predictable. According to Ben Wildon of SaraCarter.com, a new migrant caravan from Central America is quickly forming, and it’s heading northward to the U.S.
Incoming President Joe Biden’s lax immigration policies have become a magnet for migrants who desire entering the U.S. illegally. They know very well that Biden will not drop the hammer when they illegally enter the country. Up to 9,000 migrants have apparently been making their way to the U.S. At least 1,000 of those migrants illegally entered Guatemala on January 15, 2021, according to a report by the Associated Press.
The pro-mass migration group Pueblo Sin Fronteras was ecstatic about the new caravan and urged the incoming Biden administration to welcome them with open arms in a statement that it released recently.
“We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility,” the statement said.
In addition, the group stated, ”We will advocate that the Biden government honors its commitments.”
Additionally, the group called for immigration reform (amnesty) by scrapping laws that make migrants stay in Mexico as their asylum requests are processed.
“A new United States Government is an opportunity to work with the Mexican Government to develop a cooperation plan with Central America to address the causes of migration, together with civil society organizations, as well as an opportunity to increase regional cooperation regarding the persons in need of protection, and to dismantle illegal and inhuman programs such as Remain in Mexico, the United States’ Asylum Cooperation Agreements with El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, as well as the Title 42 expulsions by the United States authorities,” Pueblo Sin Fronteras stated.
According to a Fox News report, Biden has vowed to provide citizenship to illegal aliens and do away with a number of Trump era policies such as the enforcement of the public charge rule, the temporary immigration moratorium during the Wuhan virus pandemic, and several restrictions to the H1-B visa system that kept legal immigration in check. Additionally, Bden wants to implement a moratorium on ICE deportations.
Curiously, Susan Rice, a Biden administration policy advisor revealed that the U.S. would not be fully opening the borders to migrants right off the bat.
“Processing capacity at the border is not like a light that you can just switch on and off,” Rice told the Spanish news site EFE. “Migrants and asylum seekers absolutely should not believe those in the region peddling the idea that the border will suddenly be fully open to process everyone on Day 1. It will not.”
These caravans will only grow larger as time goes by. The Biden administration’s weak border policies serve as a magnet for migrants. Border security is a pillar of any coherent political jurisdiction. Failure to secure a border, will inevitably lead to political chaos.
If Republicans are serious about getting back into power, they should unapologetically push for strong border policies, zero tolerance on illegal immigration, and a legal immigration moratorium.
