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.
Rep. Justin Amash (MI) was only House Republican to vote against his party's MTR to HR1.

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.
Meanwhile in Mexico…9 People Killed At a Wake in the State of Guanajuato
America must bolster its border security.
The Independent reported that gunmen killed nine people at a wake in the central Mexican state of Guanajuato on January 7, 2020.
Law enforcement officials in the city of Celaya revealed in a statement that gunmen showed up late that night and began firing on a group of people. The event was held in an impoverished neighborhood where residents mourned a young man who fell to gun fire a few days prior.
According to David Saucedo, a security analyst based in Guanajuato, the Jalisco New Generation Cartel carried out the attack against the deceased man’s family. The gunmen believed that the family was connected to the competing Santa Rosa de Lima gang, although many may not have connections with the gang.
“At that wake, a lot of innocent people died,” Saucedo observed.
Guanajuato is a flashpoint for a violent proxy war between major drug cartels. Since 2017, the Santa Rosa de Lima gang has fended off the fast-rising Jalisco cartel in a bloody turf war. Although law enforcement arrested the leader of the Santa Rosa de Lima gang back in August, the violence has not gone away According to Saucedo, the Sinaloa cartel has intervened in this struggle to keep the Jalisco cartel from securing a foothold in Guanajuato. They’ve sent weapons, financial aid, and gunmen to prop up Santa Rosa de Lima and other local gangs.
With so much drama taking place stateside, we often forget that Mexico is a failed state. Similarly, the outrage stemming from the Wuhan virus pandemic largely overshadowed issues of border security and immigration. However, this should not lessen the importance of the immigration issue.
As Mexico continues tearing itself apart, America must bolster its border security. Unfortunately, the incoming President Joe Biden is not up to task and will prioritize weak border enforcement and a potential amnesty for illegal aliens. America will suffer greatly as a result.
