Several commenters have asked me to help spread the word about the latest radical bill from House Democrats called the “New Way Forward Act.” This is part of a long Democratic tradition of giving terrible bills innocuous-sounding names, like calling a bill to impose socialism the “Save The Puppies Act.” What the “New Way Forward Act” would actually do is make it virtually impossible to deport anybody, even people who commit the most heinous felony crimes against Americans. Worse (and incredibly), it would allow for previously deported criminals to return to the US at taxpayer expense. Yes, US taxpayers would actually be expected to pay to import dangerous criminals to prey on them.
Forty-four Democrats, including AOC and Ilhan Omar, naturally, think this would represent a step “forward” in our immigration policy. As Illinois Rep. Jesus Garcia put it, it would “break the prison-to-deportation pipeline.” Sorry, but I don’t want that pipeline broken. I want it greased so that dangerous criminals will slide back to where they came from even faster.
Mark Twain once said that Congress is America’s only native criminal class, so maybe these Congress members are just looking out for their brethren. Fortunately, there’s little chance of it passing the House, and if it did, zero chance of it passing the Senate and being signed by President Trump. But that’s all the more reason to make sure the Senate and White House never fall into Democratic hands (see “Virginia.”)
Tucker Carlson has been one of the few in the media ringing an alarm over this latest leftist lunacy. At the link is an op-ed by him explaining more about it.
Remember, when Nancy Pelosi responds to accurate criticism that her House has done nothing but obsess over impeachment by claiming they’ve passed hundreds of bills that are gathering dust on Mitch McConnell’s Senate desk, these are the kind of partisan, anti-American, out-of-touch-with-reality nuttery that she’s talking about. It’s enough to make you fall on your knees and thank the Lord for Mitch McConnell’s dusty desk.
