Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sternly scolded Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on the Senate floor Wednesday after the Democrat objected to his motion for unanimous consent on “Kate’s Law,” which would implement mandatory minimum sentences for illegal immigrant felons.
Reid argued that the mandatory minimum sentencing of criminal illegal aliens would have dire monetary consequences due to the increase in people incarcerated in America’s jails.
In response, Cruz delivered an excoriating attack on Democrats:
“I’m sorry that the Democratic party doesn’t want to spend the money to lock up murderers, and instead, apparently, it’s cheaper to lose our sons and daughters. I think we have the resources to lock up murderers.”
Cruz also accused Reid of suggesting illegal immigrant criminals and all other immigrants shoudl be “lumped into the same bucket.”
“When the Democratic leader suggests that incarcerating aggravated felons, murderers and rapists who illegally re-enter this country is somehow a slight to immigrants — well…I am the son of an immigrant who came legally from Cuba,” Cruz said. “There is no one in this chamber who will stand and fight harder for legal immigrants than I will.”
Mitch? Find your cajones and allow the majority rule to come back! ALLOW a clean vote!!! ~ JP
Wednesday, November 4
Harry Reid kills ‘Kate’s Law’, at least for now:
NOTE: Thursday on ‘The O’Reilly Factor’
Sen. Harry Reid, a Democrat, blocked Kate’s Law. But why? The O’Reilly Factor has the inside story
Cruz called for unanimous consent on Kate’s Law after reintroducing the bill in the Senate following the Democrats recent blockage of the legislation. The law is named after Kate Steinle, who was gunned down by an illegal immigrant felon who avoided federal law enforcement due to San Francisco’s “sanctuary city” status.
The law only targets “aggravated” illegal immigrant felons, not all immigrants as some Democrats have suggested, Cruz said.
“Every Democrat that stands up and block’s Kate’s Law needs to be prepared to explain why standing with violent criminal illegal aliens is more important than protecting American citizens,” the GOP presidential candidate said on the Senate floor Wednesday.
These are dark days for people of faith in America as secular progressives mount a ferocious campaign to silence the Christian voice.
In the past week, high school marching bands in Georgia and Mississippi were ordered to stop playing religious songs. Schools were told to silence prayers before football games.
In Kansas, a painting of Jesus was removed from a school hallway. And in Denver, the city council blocked Chick-fil-A from opening a franchise in the airport.
Here’s what’s happening folks: Secular progressives and militant LGBT activists are waging a cultural jihad against the Christian faith. And unless people of faith take a stand, they will purge Christians from the public marketplace.
What the American people know and what the families of victims of violent crime know is that this Administration has consistently and steadfastly placed the goal of amnesty above the goal of public safety. Time and time and time again that has been the fact…
If this Administration spent one-tenth of the effort on enforcement and protecting people from crimes and punishing people who are criminals who violate our immigration laws, rather than on amnesty we’d be a lot safer today. Many of the people who have been injured, robbed, or killed by illegal aliens would be alive today. That’s just fact and everybody knows it.
“Sharia,” which comes from the Koran and means “the right path”
A proposal in Seattle meant to increase homeownership among Muslims by offering financing compliant with strict Islamic law — known as Sharia — is gaining ground in the latest test for local leaders trying to accommodate diverse religious beliefs.
“We will work to develop new tools for Muslims who are prevented from using conventional mortgage products due to their religious beliefs,” Seattle Mayor Ed Murray said during a press conference July 13.
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — On Monday’s edition of Yellowhammer Radio, Host Cliff Sims received a call that is likely to raise more than a few eyebrows. A Birmingham resident named Raul, an American citizen of Mexican descent and a self-described conservative, called in to discuss his perspective on illegal immigration and Donald Trump’s controversial comments on the issue.
“Trump has figured out a way to attract voters,” he said. “What he is doing is firing up our base…he’s touching our hearts and minds and there’s no other candidate that’s really doing that… He rubbed people the wrong way [on immigration] by saying it the way he did. However, it needed to be said.”
Raul’s comments may come as a surprise to many people who have watched the backlash to Trump’s comments on Mexican immigrants.
“There are a lot of bad people coming across [the border],” he explained. “When my parents came across in the late 50s, they came across for a better life. I thank God every day that they came here because I’m living the dream — the American dream. They came the right way, they weren’t here illegally… There has to be a limit to who’s coming in and there has to be a watchful eye as to who we’re letting in.”
Cornel West called him the first “niggerized” president in an appearance on CNN. West criticized Obama as “a person who is afraid and intimidated when it comes to putting a spotlight on white supremacy.”
Cornel? Really?! obama has done it repeatedly since being elected 2008 inciting any race war possible. Are you not proud of your race pimp?
