In his support of illegal aliens, Congressman Justin Amash (R-Michigan) just couldn’t bring himself to vote with his colleagues on passing Kate’s Law, which will impose harsher penalties on deported aliens who return to the United States.
Kate’s Law passed through the House 257 to 167, with 24 Democrats crossing party lines to approve the bill. Claiming that it somehow violates the Constitution, Amash was the only Republican to vote against the bill, which was named after Kate Steinle, a San Francisco woman who was ruthlessly gunned down by an illegal immigrant who managed to stay in the country despite multiple deportations.
The Michigan lawmaker also voted against the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, which would deny federal funding to “sanctuary” cities, for the same reason.
A “never Trumper,” Amash was one of the first Republican lawmakers to talk about impeaching President Trump if a New York Times report about the President pressuring James Comey to stop the Russian probe regarding former national security adviser Michael Flynn was true, noting that he would support the FBI director’s word over President Trump’s.
He admitted, “I think it’s pretty clear I have more confidence in Director Comey.”
I voted no today on two bills that together violate the 1st, 4th, 5th, 10th, and 11th Amendments. I will always defend our Constitution.
