Michigan House Representative Justin Amash was the sole Republican to vote against legislation saying that allowing illegal immigrants to vote takes power away from American citizens.
Today the U.S. House defeated a move that would have expressed “the sense of Congress that allowing illegal immigrants the right to vote devalues the franchise and diminishes the voting power of United States citizens.”
The legislation was defeated nearly along party lines, with six Democrats voting in favor, and Rep. Justin Amash voting against it.

Amash, who considers himself a principled libertarian, has yet to explain why he voted against legislation that would have reinforced existing constitutional law.
Readers may also remember Amash as one of the sole Republicans willing to vote with Democrats against President Donald J. Trump’s national emergency declaration at the southern border, doing so under the guise of refusing to allow President Trump to seek powers that are not enshrined in the constitution.
Formerly a GOP favorite, Amash was castigated last week after giving a series of softball questions to disgraced former lawyer Michael Cohen, much to the delight of globalist financier George Soros.
To close, Amash asked a bizarre and frankly effeminate question of Cohen that struck the deceptive sleazeball off guard, “What is the truth that you know President Trump fears most?”
Taken aback, Cohen responded: “That’s a tough question, sir. I don’t have an answer for that one.” The dirty rat was happy after receiving Amash’s softballs while other Republicans questioned him with strength and resolve.
“Thank you for your questions,” Cohen said. “Some of the other ones really make it difficult to try to show some redemption, but I am, I am trying.”
While Amash may be diverging with nearly the entire GOP caucus and an incredibly popular Republican President, he is getting positive attention from the George Soros network. The Soros-funded propaganda entity Talking Points Matter wrote a piece praising Amash for his assistance to Democrats in their rehabilitation efforts of Cohen to hurt the President.

Coronavirus Stimulus Contains Whopping $350 Million Refugee Resettlement Boondoggle
This has nothing to do with the virus, or the economy.
It appears that a $350 million dollar appropriation for purposes of “Migration and Refugee Assistance” managed to slip inside the coronavirus stimulus package.
Populist commentator Ryan Girdusky first reported on the hidden boondoggle as the legislation was being prepared for a Senate vote Wednesday night. It’s one of several unrelated pork planks in the massive $2 trillion stimulus that was able to slip in without the scrutiny of Republican senators.

The proposal to enrich refugee resettlement contractors appears to have migrated into the legislation originally introduced by Mitch McConnell from Nancy Pelosi’s rivaling proposal. The Speaker of the House had temporarily derailed the stimulus package by introducing a plan of her own, but from the looks of it, she’s getting a crucial element of the left-wing social agenda Democrats have tried to tie to the stimulus with the refugee resettlement package.
Florida’s Matt Gaetz appears to be one of the few members of Congress to question the totally unrelated refugee giveaway in the moment of legislative urgency.

Nominal charitable and non-profit entities have gamed and rigged the American refugee resettlement process for years, enriching themselves to the tunes of tens of millions of dollars if not more on the taxpayer dime. Migration skeptics have long questioned the utility of such an arrangement, pointing out that spending hundreds millions of dollars to resettle people in the United States could be used to far greater effect in providing relief for displaced peoples closer to their homes countries.
Existing refugee resettlement programs have continued in spite of the raging coronavirus pandemic. More than 3,000 people have been resettled in the United States since January, when the disease began surfacing on the radar of the federal government.
The Washington D.C. Swamp appears to have succeeded in utilizing one of its oldest cards in this instance, attaching a totally unrelated refugee proposal to a sorely needed economic relief package. It’s likely the proposal would have shot down on other circumstances, but congressional Democrats ultimately proved tactful enough to advance their preferred and entirely unrelated special interest in a moment of great legislative urgency.
