174 Democrats Vote Against Amendment That Would Prevent TSA To Hire Terrorists Or Sexual Predators

Democrats do not care about the safety and well being of the American people.

Lately, they seem more concerned about illegals or how many votes they will get from illegals.

174 House Democrats — including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer voted against an amendment to the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act that alters the way TSA disciplines and fires workers. Despite the fact that it was written by Democratic Rep. Lauren Underwood (Ill.).

This Amendment would keep people convicted of sexual assault, terrorism and other violent crimes from working for the Transportation Security Agency.

Luckily, there were enough sensible Democrats that voted with all of the Republicans to move this bill to the Senate.


House Republicans and 42 Democrats joined forces Thursday to pass the amendment.

[The amendment] was pulled back by leadership because the socialist wing of the party did not want to have that amendment go forward on this bill,” the California representative said Thursday, according to the Washington Free Beacon. “When it was offered, overwhelmingly the majority of the House would like to see the TSA not hire terrorists or those who have been convicted of sexual misconduct with minors and others. But the socialist wing of the party, that controls now the Democratic Party, said that that could not be offered.”

Every member of the “squad” voted against the amendment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not cast a vote.

TSA has been accused of being lax when it comes to identifying people on the terror watch list. TSA agents were charged with trying to smuggle 20 tons of cocaine from Puerto Rico.

Democrats are not working for the safety of the American people and national security. The common-sense legislation should have passed with complete unity. Democrats will feel the pain this November.
