RICHMOND, Va. — A two-term state lawmaker running for U.S. Senate in Virginia is already planning to violate his federal Oath of Office before his hand even touches the King James, pledging to totally ignore federal immigration law on the matter of sanctuary cities, according to reports.
For Culpeper state Del. Nick Freitas, the rule of law is a matter of his whim, Saturday’s Virginia Tea Party debate revealed. The would-be Senator with an apparent allergy to making and enforcing laws, said he absolutely would not prosecute municipal authorities who create sanctuary cities, shocking many tea partiers at the March 17 VATP debate.
“If we ever, God forbid, had a Hillary Clinton presidency, and they passed federal gun bans, when a sheriff … refuses to enforce it, the federal government is going to go in and put that person in jail,” warned Freitas.
Freitas is only one of two candidates running for U.S. Senate in Virginia’s 2018 Republican primary who agreed to speak at VATP. Elections are held June 12 in Virginia.
For many large cities all across the U.S., passive non-enforcement of federal immigration laws is an unofficial, official practice. The state delegate wants to go a step further, suggesting that not enforcing U.S. immigration laws should be formalized. As his remarks suggest, Freitas conflates hypothetical future abuse of the Second Amendment by a hypothetical future president with a delegated federal power written into Art. 1 of the U.S. Constitution — apples and oranges, some might say. Congress is supposed to be in charge of immigration, since it was delegated as an original enumerated power, but any “infringement” of the Second Amendment would by it’s very nature be a grossly illegal, illegitimate change to the Constitution.
Whether or not Freitas’ example is a good one, what he told voters that night is plainly evident: a candidate for membership in the “world’s greatest deliberative body” wishes to abdicate the chamber’s authority before he even wins election.
In stark contrast to Freitas, former Virginia Republican gubernatorial candidate Cory Stewart admonished attendees, “Prosecute any local or state official who declares themselves a sanctuary city.” Stewart did just that in Prince William County, and he didn’t forget to mention it to audience members, bragging about the 8,000 people he sent to Immigration and Customs Enforcement for deportation.
“The only way we’re going to control the problems in this country is to stop this massive inflow of … all the aliens into this country who are suppressing wages who are committing crimes and that is why we must build,” Stewart stated, mirroring one of the signature campaign issues for now-President Trump.
For many establishment Republicans, Stewart is a persistent source of accountability and inconvenient transparency, when he isn’t vocally advocating for protecting Virginia’s historical statues.
Institutionalized anarchy where it concerns immigration is the takeaway for many participants of the traditional March 17 confab, something that ordinarily hurts a Republican candidate; but apparently — not in Richmond, Virginia.
If the straw poll taken that night at the Virginia Tea Party is accurate, Freitas is leading at 65 percent against 35 percent for Stewart, according to Tea Party chairman Rick Buchanan. Those numbers invert in scientific polls performed by the respected Wason Center for Public Policy at Christopher Newport University.
The race for U.S. Senate in Virginia is dominated almost entirely by discussions of candidate support for (or opposition to) Trump’s “great, big wall.”
Both Freitas and Stewart claim to be on the right side of the wall, but only one candidate truly wanted to “Build the Wall” before Saturday’s debate, and without taking a proverbial dip in the Rio Grande.
TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District
It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”
Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.
Her lawlessness, ignorance and corruption have gone on for too long!
— DeAnna for Congress🇺🇸vs Nancy (@DeAnna4Congress) February 6, 2020
The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at PelosiForPrison.co, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.
Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”
“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”
This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
