You would think that it would go without saying that people who are not even a citizen of our country should not have a government job. Democrats apparently do not possess the brain cells to realize this.
There have been a few Republican members of congress who have banned together in order to push a bill that will ban illegal immigrants from getting government jobs. Rep. Tom Graves of Georgia is leading the group.
Thanks to Democrats, an addendum was pushed that would designate part of the House’s 2018 spending bill to allowed younger illegals a chance to obtain employment within the government.
A couple of Republican congressional members, led by Rep. Tom Graves from Georgia, have joined forces to press forward a bill to halt what the Democrats put into play, and stop illegals from receiving government jobs.
The Democrat-drafted and -backed rule was inserted into the House’s version of the 2018 spending plan via a during a nighttime July 13 debate at the GOP-dominated House Committee on Appropriations. The jobs-for-illegals amendment was adopted because some GOP legislators joined Democrats in supporting the measure, but their identity and number remain secret because it was a voice vote, not a recorded vote.
The rule was approved in a meeting overseen by Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen, who represents an upper-income GOP district in New Jersey. He has a D+ rating from the pro-American reform group, NumbersUSA. After the vote, Frelinghuysen applauded the process, saying:
‘Our financial system thrives on stability, and this bill provides the funding necessary for federal regulators to do their jobs in a timely and appropriate manner, while stopping burdensome regulations before they can damage our economy irreparably.’
One staffer said, “What we’re focused on is getting [the jobs-for-illegals language] ripped out,” the aide added, “We feel confident that we will be able to strip it out.”
Yet if you speak out against the Democrats all, you are labeled as a racist bigot, among many other names. Just like a school child, if you do not allow them to have their way, they will throw a fit. Even if their way puts Americans at risk.
