Freshman Democrat Rashida Tlaib must want to be remembered as a martyr or something.
The Michigan lawmaker is now calling for people to join her in a hunger strike until Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is shut down.
In other words – OPEN BORDERS!
From Free Beacon:
Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.) urged her supporters to join her in a hunger strike to push for action to “shut down” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), arguing the radical push to abolish ICE can’t be achieved by Congress.
Tlaib, headlining a Detroit fundraiser this past weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, complained of colleagues who are constantly “policing” what she says and lack willingness to embrace bold stands such as abolishing ICE. She called on her activist audience to join her in a hunger strike at the border.
“It’s going to take movements outside the halls of Congress,” Tlaib told the crowd, according to video captured by America Rising, a conservative group.
“I want you all to shut them down, we can shut them down,” Tlaib said to applause. “Don’t wait for this Congress to act, shut them down.”
“I know what they’re going to say, they’ll go, ‘What do you mean Rashida?’ Well I’ll tell you. There are some people that are using hunger strike, all these other things, going to the border, and I plan to.”
Tlaib may have recently been busted for violating campaign finance laws.
She’s got bigger fish to fry than worrying about whether or not illegals are granted entry into America.
From Daily Caller:
Democratic Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib reportedly paid herself $17,500 from her election campaign funds — after she won her midterm election in November 2018.
That appears to be a violation of campaign finance rules, the Washington Free Beacon reported Friday. In total, campaign records reveal that the congresswoman paid herself a salary of $45,000 before and after the election.
FEC rules state that campaign funds can no longer be transferred to a candidate once that person ceases to be a candidate.
“If the candidate loses the primary, withdraws from the race, or otherwise ceases to be a candidate, no salary payments may be paid beyond the date he or she is no longer a candidate,” the rules state.
Naughty, naughty, Rashida!
Some Democrats truly believe that freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar (MN) is a victim, despite knowingly trivializing 9/11, disparaging Israel at every turn, and calling for the release of a jailed member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Take this woman, for example, who argues that Congressional Democrats are not doing their jobs in protecting Omar…
The attacks on @IlhanMN and subsequent lack of support from Democratic leadership continues to prove that this system was never meant for us.
Do not applaud diversity and the “first” Muslims in any space if you’re not willing to be a true ally and defend us.#IStandwithIlhan.
