Freshman Democratic Rep. Rashida Tlaib recently told supporters they need to do more than protest on social media, and cited others who are going as far as hunger strikes to convince Republicans to back down.
While speaking to supporters at a fundraiser earlier this week, Tlaib said it is the responsibility of Americans to “shut down” Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and convince Republicans to forego any type of border security.
“It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress, rooms outside the White House,” said Tlaib, “I want you all to shut them down. We can shut them down. Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.”
Realizing how strange this must sound to those listening, she went on to expand on her command.
“I know what they’re going to say to me, ‘What do you mean, Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you,” she said. “There are some people that are using hunger strikes, all these other things.”
She also told her supporters she was planning on “going to the border” and encouraged them to do the same, though she did not explain what this will do to impact policy decisions made in Washington, D.C.
Tlaib, who shares a blood relation with her ex husband, is apparently only interested in the human rights of illegal aliens, and not homosexuals from around the world.
Last week, she refused to condemn the horrifying policy in the Muslim theocracy of Brunei, which will now punish homosexual acts by stoning homosexuals to death in a public setting.
Neither Tlaib, or her fellow Muslim congresswoman Rep. Ilhan Omar, would condemn the barbaric, brutal, and morally reprehensible homophobic policy.
Democrat Congressmen Introduce Term Limits Legislation for SCOTUS Justices As Trump Prepares Nominee
Three Democrat members of Congress are introducing legislation to institute term limits for Supreme Court justices, as President Trump prepares to nominate his third candidate for the court following the death of progressive liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Democrats Joe Kennedy, Ro Khanna, and Don Beyer are proposing legislation that would limit SCOTUS justice to a maximum term of eighteen years on the court.
Lifetime appointments to the highest court in our land undermine our democratic process and erode progress in our nation.
We must enact 18 year term limits on our Supreme Court justices to continue our march towards a more perfect union. https://t.co/9fCyggP686

Khanna has proposed an idea that would allow Presidents to appoint two judges in each term. “Senior” members of the court would be required to basically retired for every new member of the court.
When I first ran for Congress in 2014, I proposed limiting terms of Supreme Court Justice to 18-appointments.
Given the recent, dramatic politicization of the Court, it's time for real reform.
— Rep. Don Beyer (@RepDonBeyer) September 25, 2020
It’s pretty funny the Democrats are uniting behind these proposals the moment they appear primed to lose control of the Supreme Court for a generation. They weren’t complaining when Obama was trying to replace Antonin Scalia with progressive Merrick Garland, even going so far as claiming that the stealth liberal was entitled to the seat. Reports emerging Friday suggest that President Donald Trump intends to nominate Amy Coney Barrett, a mostly conservative judge with a pro-life and immigration hawk judicial record.
The judicial branch of government is arguably the most flawed element of American governance, and it’s highly questionable how institutions such as the Supreme Court are able to appoint themselves a nearly unlimited amount of political power.
A better reform proposals would be to institute term limits for justices that only go into effect after the current members of the court vacate their seats. Anything else is simply a political power grab.
