Dem Rep. Ruben Gallego Threatens ICE Agents on Social Media: ‘You Will Not be Safe’

It’s no secret that Democrats don’t like ICE agents, but this goes a bit too far.  In late August, a Democrat lawmaker issued a threat against ICE agents involved in what he called “illegal” deportations, saying they “will not be safe” once Donald Trump is out of office.

Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego made the threat on social media, responding to a tweet by MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. Hayes had shared a Washington Post article alleging that the government is denying passports to some U.S. citizens because it believes their birth certificates are fraudulent.

Between the 1950s and 1990s, according to the article, midwives and physicians along the southern border provided American birth certificates to babies who were actually born in Mexico. Witnesses in court cases admitted to providing fake documents.

Under both former President’s George W. Bush and Barack Obama, the government cited those instances as a reason to deny passports. Once again, the Trump administration is simply carrying on that precedent and it’s suddenly become big news.

And now, ICE agents simply doing their job are being threatened with punishment and prosecution by Gallego.

Isn’t it something that a Democrat is so willing to toss around the term ‘illegal’ when it comes to law enforcement, but would never think to say it regarding illegal immigrants?

Remarkably, Gallego has been in office since 2015, meaning he had plenty of time to take the same brave stance against the Obama administration for doing the same exact thing.

A settlement case involving the ACLU in 2009 resulted in “the number of (passport) denials declin(ing) during the rest of the Obama administration,” the Post reported, “but under President Trump, the passport denials and revocations appear to be surging.”

Side note – whenever the media reports that something is “surging” under President Trump, it means that laws were ignored or dismissed in the previous administration while they are now actually being enforced.

Still, the State Department squashed any allegations of this practice “surging” at all.

“Under the Trump Administration, domestic passport denials for so-called ‘midwife cases’ are at a 6-year low,” the department said in a statement to Fox News. “The reporting is a political cheap shot.”

And now it’s led to another unhinged lawmaker trying to incite violence.

Gallego added that ICE agents “will eventually be held accountable for their actions, even if the Trump administration is refusing to do so.”

The passport story is eerily reminiscent of the alleged ‘child separation‘ story, in which media and Democrats suddenly became outraged at the Trump administration following a policy that had been in place during the tenure of previous Presidents.

Anything they can possibly do to try and paint Trump as a racist. Their game is getting old.

In an op-ed column, former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich wrote that the Democrat party’s “radical, impractical and unpopular immigration positions” would lead to a ‘red wave’ in November.

Those radical stances now include threats to ICE and border agents. The President has ushered in a new era of law enforcement while the Democrats continue to prop up and defend lawbreakers.
