No Democrat Can Defend This; 150 Democrats Vote Against Bill to Deport Illegal Immigrants Convicted of DUIs; Three Years of Biden Immigration Policies Have Benefitted Criminal Aliens

No Democrat Can Defend This:
“It is hard to visualize the consequences of bad lawmakers until you see the victims,” Elon Musk posted to Twitter late Wednesday evening.
Musk was commenting on a photo of José Menjivar, an illegal immigrant who killed a Colorado mother and son while driving drunk last month. Menjivar was released from custody with no jail time just days before the tragic crash. He had racked up three DUIs previously and had been deported four times.
In a healthy, responsible society, crimes like Menjivar’s would be viewed as heinous, and treated with the utmost level of seriousness.
But in 21st-century America, you don’t have to look too far to find examples of the kind of inexcusable judgment frequently displayed by those in charge. One might, for example, look to the schools in Chicago being closed to make room for illegal aliens.
Or one might observe the conversion of a Boston community center into a migrant camp.
Abuses like these are the reason why Trump was able to court so many voters in 2016 with his rhetoric on illegal immigration, among other issues. For some Americans, illegal immigration is literally a matter of life or death, or at least of their livelihood.
But for others, specifically Democrat lawmakers, illegal immigration is so trivial that they believe the term should not exist.
So how do Democrats respond to the American voter who is dissatisfied with the status of illegal immigration policy?
Well, on Thursday, they voted to prevent deportation for illegals who commit DUIs.
Surprising? To some, maybe. But decisions like this are becoming more normal with each passing day under the Biden administration. --->READ MORE HERE

150 Democrats Vote Against Bill to Deport Illegal Immigrants Convicted of DUIs:
Some 150 House Democrats voted Thursday against a bill to allow the deportation of illegal immigrants who have been convicted of driving while under the influence of alcohol and other drugs.
“In the United States, someone dies in a crash with an impaired driver every 45 minutes,” the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Barry Moore, R-Ala., told The Daily Signal in a statement Thursday. “I lost two of my young newlywed constituents to an illegal immigrant driving under the influence of alcohol.”
“I’m proud to join with my House Republican colleagues to protect American families from more of these tragedies by passing legislation to deport illegal immigrants who have been caught driving impaired,” Moore added.
The bill, HR 6976, passed the House of Representatives 274-150, with seven members not voting.
The bill would “amend the Immigration and Nationality Act to provide that aliens who have been convicted of, or who have committed an offense for, driving while intoxicated or impaired are inadmissible and deportable,” according to its text.
Every Republican voted for the bill, as did 59 Democrats. Many of the Democrats who voted for the bill have been identified by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee as vulnerable in 2024, including Virginia’s Abigail Spanberger, Nevada’s Steven Horsford and Susie Lee, and Michigan’s Dan Kildee.
Many prominent Democrats voted against the measure, however. California’s Adam Schiff; Florida’s Debbie Wasserman Schultz; Maryland’s Jamie Raskin; Massachusetts’ Ayanna Pressley; Michigan’s Rashida Tlaib; Minnesota’s Ilhan Omar; Missouri’s Cori Bush; New York’s Jamaal Bowman, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Jerry Nadler; South Carolina’s Jim Clyburn; and Texas’ Al Green and Sheila Jackson Lee all opposed the bill.
House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries, who represents New York, did not respond to The Daily Signal’s request for comment on why he opposed the bill.
“It’s unfortunately not surprising that 150 Democrats opposed this legislation,” added Moore, the bill’s sponsor. “In 2021, many of my Democrat colleagues on the Judiciary Committee voted down three Republican amendments that would have made immigrants ineligible for green cards with a DUI conviction. In 2020, then-candidate Biden said that illegal aliens with DUI convictions should be allowed to stay in the United States.” --->READ MORE HERE
