America First congressman Paul Gosar also commented, “The “Farm Workforce Modernization Act” would legalize every illegal alien farmworker in America by issuing them “certified agricultural worker” permits and eventually, green cards, issued above the annual green card limit. It’s amnesty for 1.5 million illegal aliens.”

The vote breakdown for this bill can be viewed here.
However, there is one lesser-known aspect of this vote that should be noted.
Congressmen Brian Fitzpatrick, Fred Upton, Chris Smith, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Will Hurd not only voted for this bill, but they also have a track record of supporting gun control and another amnesty bill earlier this year. Their overall voting habits demonstrate establishment tendencies.
First up is H.R. 8, the universal gun registration bill, which all five of them voted for back in February. This bill represented the largest expansion of gun control at the federal level since the Brady Act was passed in the early 1990s.
Then, this gang of five RINOs voted for the American Dream and Promise Act on June 4, 2019, which would have protected illegal immigrants from being deported and potentially given millions a permanent pathway citizenship.
These three instances of voting show that there are still Republicans in Congress who cannot be counted on to defend key issues such as gun rights and immigration. Grassroots activists should actively keep records of these elected officials around primary season so that they can run more conservative alternatives against these corrupt incumbents.
Democrats Introduce Expanded Background Check Legislation
Democrats are going to implement a background check which targets “extremism.”
Connecticut Senator Chris Murphy and California Congressman Mike Thompson brought forward legislation on March 2, 2021 that aims to broaden the federal background check system on firearms sales, according to a report by The Hill.
Under The Background Check Expansion Act, gun sales and purchases between all unlicensed sellers and buyers would be subject to a mandatory background check. The background checks would not be applicable for law enforcement officers, lending out firearms for the purpose of hunting, temporary transfers for self-defense, or family members gifting a firearm.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and 43 Senate Democrats have co-sponsored this bill. Thompson, who is the chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, reintroduced this legislation in the U.S. House
“For years, the bipartisan House-passed background checks bill languished in the Senate under Republican Leader Mitch McConnell. Now, with Senate Democrats in the Majority, we have the opportunity to act on this overwhelmingly popular, lifesaving legislation to protect American communities,” Schumer declared in a press release.
According to a CBS News report, President Joe Biden has repeatedly called on Congress to pass stiffer gun control laws. This gun control bill will not pass so easily given how it will need 10 Republican senators to vote in favor of it.
Against the backdrop of the January 6 storming of the Capitol, such a background check will likely feature provisions that target so-called “extremists.” The ruling class has routinely lumped average gun owners with domestic extremists and will most certainly use recent events to justify encroachments on people’s right to bear arms.
Biden is a veteran of the gun control movement, as evidenced by his sponsorship of the Gun-Free School Zones Act of 1990 and the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. With Democrats in control of all branches of the federal government, they will certainly move to pass gun control. However, their success is not guaranteed due to moderate Democrats like Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema and West Virginia Joe Manchin not being completely receptive to radical gun control that could alienate them from their more right-wing constituents.
Nevertheless, the Left has shown that it’s willing to act regardless of the political context. Keeping this in mind, gun owners must be ready to beat back any kind of gun control coming from D.C. Such fights will allow the Right to rebuild its forces and make a splash in the 2022 midterms and the 2024 presidential race.
