Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer vetoed a bipartisan bill on Friday that would have protected the elderly and vulnerable by banning COVID-19 patients from being quarantined in nursing homes.
“Protecting the health and safety of nursing home residents and their staff continues to be a top priority for my administration,” Governor Whitmer said while announcing her veto.
“Senate Bill 956 is nothing more than a political game that would relocate vulnerable seniors without any requirement for consent, doctor’s approval, or notification to patients and their families. It’s time for the Republican legislature to get serious about protecting our most vulnerable and addressing the public health and economic crisis faced by our state. We look forward to continuing our work with stakeholders and legislators on the task force to develop real solutions that make sense for Michigan seniors and their families,” she added.
Senate Republicans are firing back at Whitmer for her cruel and callous decision to veto the common sense legislation.
“In a mean-spirited move, Gov. Whitmer announced she vetoed a plan that would have prevented COVID-19 patients from entering our nursing homes,” they wrote.
“Only a few governors had allowed this reckless practice in the first place, and all except Gov. Whitmer have since changed course and stopped the practice, including embattled New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo,” Senate Republicans continued.
“Gov. Whitmer should be ashamed, and she certainly is acting like it. Her veto decision was hidden in a late Friday afternoon news release with a headline announcing something entirely different,” they added. “But make no mistake. The governor owns her veto and the abhorrent policy that has contributed to the deaths of thousands of people.”
Big League Politics has reported on how Democrat lawmakers from Detroit, the city hit hardest by the coronavirus pandemic in the state, have come out against Whitmer for her dismal leadership throughout the crisis.
“Why the state of Michigan has chosen this path is beyond me,” said state representative Leslie Love, whose elderly mother contracted COVID-19 while housed in a nursing home. “It seems like the most idiotic thing we could come up with.”
State representative Karen Whitsett, whose life was saved from a COVID-19 death sentence due to use of the miracle drug hydroxychloroquine, was punished by Whitmer for crediting Trump for recommending the treatment.
“There’s so much more to this story, and it’s shameful on the Democratic Party,” Whitsett said last month. “Let’s be serious and use some common sense here.”
“The resources we’re supposed to have he told me quite frankly are supposed to come from the Governor and the Governor is not painting the same picture to him or the Vice President,” she added. “I believe this is the Governor. She has decided that she is going to slap me on the wrist by silencing me. It’s a shame that she’s doing this. It’s politics at its best.”
Whitmer will continue to punish Michigan residents while sending elderly patients to their graves as she auditions to be presumptive Democrat nominee Joe Biden’s vice presidential pick.
Texas Attorney General Sues Biden Administration to Stop ‘Unlawful’ Open Border Policies
Ken Paxton is fighting back.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced on Friday that his state is filing a lawsuit to stop President-imposed Joe Biden’s administration’s open border policies that are being enacted at breakneck speed.
“In one of its first of dozens of steps that harm Texas and the nation as a whole, the Biden administration directed DHS to violate federal immigration law and breach an agreement to consult and cooperate with Texas on that law. Our state defends the largest section of the southern border in the nation. Failure to properly enforce the law will directly and immediately endanger our citizens and law enforcement personnel,” said Attorney General Paxton.
“DHS itself has previously acknowledged that such a freeze on deportations will cause concrete injuries to Texas. I am confident that these unlawful and perilous actions cannot stand. The rule of law and security of our citizens must prevail,” he added.
Paxton is accusing the Biden administration of violating the U.S. Constitution by suspending deportations of illegal aliens. He says that this illegal policy shift will hurt Texas citizens by leaving them vulnerable to dangerous third-world migrants more apt to commit violent crimes.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s unprecedented push for amnesty, which could mean the final death blow for the U.S. Republic:
President-elect Joe Biden will introduce amnesty legislation for the more than eleven million illegal aliens residing in the United States on the first day of his presidency, according to pro-illegal immigration activists. The legislation will contain a means to provide citizenship to nearly every alien in the country, which they’ll receive through a glorified paperwork process.
It’s expected that the illegals who will qualify for amnesty will be as many as eleven to twenty million, with estimates varying widely over the number of aliens in the United States. Biden has pledged to forego deportation for any alien in the country, with the exception of those convicted of felonies.
If the king-sized amnesty bill fails to get anywhere, Democrats have prepared a more reserved plan to legalize more than 5 million illegals they’re defining as essential workers. Congressional Democrats have varying opinions on the prospects of passing major immigration amnesty legislation, with Biden’s primary focus likely to be placed upon coronavirus relief, a split Senate, and a razor-thin Democratic House majority.
Immigration activists have demanded that nearly every illegal alien in the country be provided United States citizenship within five years, while Kamala Harris reportedly revealed the Biden amnesty plan will require those who flouted the law to wait for eight years.
Biden is likely to sign a glut of executive orders providing leniency to illegal aliens, including an extension of the DACA program that’s been continuously litigated over throughout Donald Trump’s presidency.
Migrant caravans have already begun the journey from Central America to the United States, eager to receive free welfare and citizenship benefits from a incoming President who has promised to make generous concessions to illegal aliens.
Texas is at least one state with a Republican Party that will stand up against the Biden regime. More states need to join them to even have a chance of stopping America’s downfall.
