Far Left Freshman Democrats: DHS Funds Should Be Cut, not Increased

Fox reported that far left freshman Democrats sent a “Dear Colleague” letter to the Congress Conference Committee on Border Security. A letter, reportedly written by Ocasio-Cortez, Tlaib, Omar, and Pressley, calling the DHS an “agency of hate” and called for its funding to be cut was obtained by The Daily Beast.  CUT. Think about how far afield that statement is – with “migrant caravans” continually coming for our borders, they think cutting their funds is the answer.

Democrats – liberals, are normally off plumb, but these lefties are actually off the planet. And some idiots out there elected them. It’s mind boggling.

Here’s their letter:

The letter reportedly is from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley. It’s also not on Congressional stationary. Are these women really that stupid? AOC and her cronies want to defund the whole Department of Homeland Security. “Not another dollar.”

“We write to you today seeking your solidarity and support to enter in to the DHS conference committee process with clear eyes…Cut, do not increase funding…. The deal reached by the Conference Committee should not allocate any additional funding to this department or to the ICE and CBP agencies. The upcoming FY 2020 budget process will be a critical opportunity to take up conversations about reforms to the agency. In the meantime, not another dollar.”

In the letter they demanded “stringent” mechanisms to prevent any transferring of budget funds, and accused the Trump Administration of using the DHS as a “slush fund.”

They stated that “a number of agencies housed at DHS have abused their authority and the fidelity of public resources.” [Not true]

They accused the DHS of not using the funds for security.

“Funds are being allocated internally not to make our nation safer, but to build desert camps to inhumanely house infants and to prosecute immigrants who are part of the fabric of our community.” [Not true]

Those kind of accusations will be met with some pushback, we can place bets on it. The motive of these leftists? It certainly isn’t to protect the United States or the citizens they are supposed to represent. They have proposed the budget-breaking “Medicare for all” proposal, opted to abolish ICE, want to require “green energy” in every household in America.

The danger here is that if you hear a wheel squeak loud enough, long enough, you not only get used to the noise, the wheel eventually causes catastrophic damage.
