If you watch this video clip, you’ll see that Jerry Nadler opposed an amendment that would have excluded illegal immigrants, who have a history of drunk driving, from gaining amnesty:
Someone can change. That’s why we have the waiver provision. You may have any number of convictions for DUI because you’re a drunk. Because you’re an alcoholic. But you also may cease to be an alcoholic, and we all know people… who are no longer alcoholics and ought to be able to enjoy the benefits of the law.
This would be a good time to point out that driving is a privilege, not a right – and benefiting from amnesty is also not a right – and yet Mr. Nadler is willing to ignore past transgressions to protect such privileges for illegal immigrants…
But when it comes to gun ownership, which is a RIGHT and not just a privilege, this was his rational for denying this right to lawful American citizens:
“That is why we must take swift and decisive action to reduce the daily toll of gun violence that afflicts our nation. H.R. 8, the ‘Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021,’ is sensible and effective legislation to do just that.
“Under current law, gun sales conducted by licensed firearms dealers may only be completed if the buyers clear background checks. This bill would simply extend that requirement, with limited exceptions, to guns transferred by unlicensed individuals as well.
“That simple change to close a gaping loophole in the law is one of the most effective steps we can take to address the scourge of gun violence in this country.
“According to one study, 22 percent of gun owners in the U.S. acquired their most recent firearm without a background check. We do not know if they were felons, fugitives, domestic abusers, or otherwise prohibited under the law from possessing firearms. A huge volume of guns was sold with no questions asked. It is time to close this dangerous loophole.
“There is no reason to continue to make it easy for people who are legally prohibited from possessing firearms to acquire them. And the evidence clearly shows that background checks work and significantly curb gun violence.
There is not a shadow of a doubt that Americans will die as a result of the influx of drunk drivers. It’s already a daily occurrence, and once again, we see how cheap the lives of Americans are in the eyes of Democrats.
In the same Tucker Carlson video, cited above, we see how an amendment to bar gang members from the amnesty was also rejected by Democrats:
When I read about the influx of Afghans into our country, one of my first thoughts was that incidents of rape are going to increase as a result. It turns out, they’re not even waiting for their release into American streets. From The Daily Caller:
Female Fort Bliss Soldier Allegedly Assaulted In Camp Holding Thousands Of Afghans
A female Fort Bliss soldier was allegedly assaulted Sept. 19 by a group of Afghan refugees at the Doña Ana County Range Complex in New Mexico, The El Paso Times reported Friday.
Fort Bliss officials confirmed that the alleged assault was reported and is being investigated by the FBI, according to ABC7.
“We can confirm a female service member supporting Operation Allies Welcome reported being assaulted on Sept. 19 by a small group of male evacuees at the Doña Ana Complex in New Mexico,” Lt. Col. Allie Payne, director of Public Affairs for Fort Bliss, told ABC7.
Notably missing from the article was any indication that the culprits will be sent back to Afghanistan.
Will the recent influx of Haitians cause problems? This article, from The Daily Beast, should answer that question. Regarding the gangs of Little Haiti, we’re told:
…there are several factions in Little Haiti. Those include Little Haiti Vultures and 77th Street, which is also known by the monikers “Uptown” and “Every Body Eats,” according to federal court documents.
“You also got a group who call themselves The Zombies,” Munch told The Daily Beast. “Miami was built off cliques. They may have grown up in the same hood or went to school together. Then someone does something to somebody else and guys start picking sides.”
Like Sears, Munch believes that modern-day Miami gangbangers don’t have any compassion for who gets caught between them and their targets.
Our rulers in Washington are deliberately flooding the United States with criminals. Their actions are cold, calculating and callous. Human life means nothing to them.
I wish I knew how this will end, but this much is certain: Many good people will die. We can only hope that we, and our loved ones, will be spared.
