House Republicans Introduce Resolution To Support ICE – Majority Of Cowardly Democrats Vote ‘Present’

Democrats have been screaming about abolishing ICE for weeks now. Yet when they had an opportunity to vote against supporting the agency, the vast majority of them chickened out and voted present.

The Daily Caller reports:


House lawmakers voted for a resolution Wednesday that supports Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials and explicitly condemns Democrats’ calls to abolish the agency.

Members voted 244-35-133 Wednesday afternoon in favor of a resolution GOP Rep. Clay Higgins of Louisiana sponsored that both decries Democrats’ push to do away with ICE and calls for congressional support for the agency and its officials. Republicans brought the measure to the floor under an expedited procedure, known as suspension of the rules, which allowed the chamber to pass it with a two-third majority.

The majority of House Democrats — 133 — voted “present,” with the remainder split. Eighteen Democrats voted in favor the bill and 35 voted against it. One Republican, Rep. Justin Amash of Michigan, voted with Democrats against the bill.

Democrats voted “present” in protest of what they deemed a political stunt on the part of Republicans, who they claim have spent months failing to address the nation’s immigration problems, like the separation of children from their parents that immigrated to the U.S. illegally.

Why did so many of them vote present? Could it be that they know attacking ICE is a losing issue?
