Jesse Lee Peterson applauds as leftists turn on each other
by Jesse Lee Peterson
After several weeks of delay, President Donald Trump is following through on the promise to deport criminal illegal aliens from major cities across the U.S. Even though Trump has said the ICE raids will focus on dangerous criminals, Democrats are freaking out.
Protestors outside an Aurora, Colorado, ICE facility stormed the barriers near the building and pulled down an American flag off the flagpole and replaced it with a Mexican flag. In Tacoma, Washington, an armed “anti-immigration enforcement protester” was fatally shot after throwing “incendiary devices” at an immigration detention center.
Democrat politicians Kamala Harris, Robert “Beto” O’Rourke, Pete Buttigieg and others expressed their outrage and shock over these sweeps. California Governor Gavin Newsom and Hillary Clinton released messages instructing illegals on how to evade law enforcement.
ICE is complying and enforcing the laws that Congress has passed. Targeting those who have received due process and ordered removed and those who have committed crimes in the U.S., Democrat lawmakers are openly aiding and abetting criminals by helping illegal aliens and criminal fugitives to avoid law enforcement and obstructing their ability to enforce the law.
Democrats claim these immigration sweeps will separate families. The ACLU claims some of these people moved and the notices were sent to wrong address – what a bunch of crap! These people are illegals and criminals – they don’t have a right to ignore our laws and remain in our country illegally; it’s their responsibility to show up in court.
“Sanctuary” state laws prohibit local law enforcement agencies from helping ICE. This is a travesty, and these Democrat lawmakers are endangering the lives of innocent law-abiding American citizens. Democrat politicians care more about illegal alien families than they do American families. It’s all about future votes for the Democratic Party.
Jeh Johnson, former DHS secretary under Barack Obama, said the crisis at the border is far worse now, and these types of immigration raids are “standard practice” and occur all the time.
The new breed of Democrats is not hiding the fact that they want open borders. Ocasio-Cortez and the freshmen group known as the “squad” made up of Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., all voted against last month’s $4.6 billion House emergency border aid bill that was supported by President Trump, Republicans and most Democrats.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wants to get rid of DHS (Department of Homeland Security). She also said she hopes Democrats can come together as a party and stand up against what should be seen universally as a cruel régime. Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” in Congress don’t respect the U.S. Constitution, and they have no respect for the leadership in their own party. They flat-out lie about conditions in ICE detention centers. If they can’t get their way, they lie and even resort to attacking their own leadership as “racists.”
The last straw for some senior Democrats was Ocasio-Cortez’s claim that Pelosi was disrespectful to minority congresswomen. One senior lawmaker (who is black) blasted Ocasio-Cortez for allegedly using the race card against the speaker, calling her comments “so inappropriate.” Some lawmakers have even turned the tables, arguing that a group aligned with her is targeting black lawmakers for potential primary challenges.
In an interview last weekend, Pelosi told the New York Times that “all these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”
“She is a complete fraud,” one senior Democratic source told Fox News, summing up members’ frustration with Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez and these far-left Democrats are bitter and disagree with the establishment liberals. Ocasio-Cortez and others ran against and beat incumbent Democrats. The radicals are not going to work with the establishment Democrats. They want to take the party further to the left and eventually off the cliff.
Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, who falsely accused President Trump and many other conservatives of “racism,” now have the tables turned. These older Democrats are getting back what they have been putting out for years.
The establishment Democratic Party leaders have encouraged radicals and socialists to hate President Trump. Along with the lying fake news media, they have protected and emboldened anarchist groups like Antifa. They have created the atmosphere that allowed Ocasio-Cortez, Reps. Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley to get elected.
The Democratic Party is in total chaos. Justice Democrats, a political action committee founded by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti, has been backing several liberal candidates to run in primary races against Democratic incumbents, a fact that has alarmed the Congressional Black Caucus, among others.
During a panel discussion at the Netroots Nation convention in Philadelphia, Rep. Ayanna Pressley took a shot at the CBC.
“We don’t need black faces that don’t want to be a black voice,” she said.
Establishment Democrats are being forced to take far-left positions. As the Democrats are cannibalizing their own and pushing for open borders, we need to shore up support for President Trump and conservative Republicans. If we stay united behind the president, we will defeat these radical Democrats and Keep America Great!
