Lars Larson Show: Criminal Alien of the Week Report
May 21, 2015
It has been an interesting third full week in the month of May when it comes to criminal aliens (illegal aliens) here in the United States of America.
This week we take a look at for your radio listeners illegal aliens who are considered by some members of the United States Congress to be eligible to serve in the United States military.
The U.S. House Representatives Armed Services Committee on April 30th of this year passed an amendment offered by U.S. Rep. Ruben Gallego, Democrat from Arizona, to the National Defense and Authorization Act (NDAA) 2016 (H.R.1735) including language that would have allowed President Barack Hussein Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) classified illegal aliens to serve in the U.S. military.
Fortunately, for citizens and lawful immigrants, U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, Republican from Alabama, put forth an amendment that would strip the language out of the NDAA 2016 that would allow DACA illegal aliens to serve in the military, the amendment would be voted on by the entire U.S. House of Representatives.
To succeed in striping Rep. Gallego’s DACA amendment from the NDAA 2016, Rep. Brooks sent a letter on May 14th to 434 of his colleges in the U.S. House of Representatives asking them to strip the DACA amendment language from the legislation.
Here are four significant excerpts from Rep. Brooks’ letter that express his concern for legal American citizens and lawful immigrants opportunity for employment by serving in the U.S. military:
1.) “Rep. Gallego’s amendment does not, in any way, shape or form, represent or promote the interests of Americans. . .”
2.) “To the contrary, Gallego’s amendment betrays Americans by encouraging the Secretary of Defense to hire illegal aliens rather than Americans.
3.) “To be clear, every military service position Gallego’s amendment helps an illegal alien take is a job denied to American citizens and lawful immigrants.”
4.) “Today’s vote to strip the Gallego amendment from the NDAA boils down to one question. Do you support and represent illegal aliens or do you support and represent Americans?”
Here are the results of the vote on May 14th by the U.S. House of Representatives on the Brooks’ amendment:
Republicans 221 yes 20 no ` 3 not voting;
Democrats 0 no 182 no 6 not voting;
Total 221 yes 202 no 9 not voting.
Oregon’s members of the U.S. Congress voted the following way on the Brooks’ amendment:
Suzanne Bonamici, 1st Congressional District, no;
Greg Walden, 2nd Congressional District, yes;
Earl Blumenauer, 3rd Congressional District, no;
Peter Defazio, 4th Congressional District, no:
Kurt Schrader, 5th Congressional District, no.
Tallying Oregon’s five Congressional Representatives vote on the Brooks’ amendment (a no vote supporting illegal aliens in the military) Bonamici, Blumenauer, Defazio and Schrader voted to allow DACA illegal aliens to serve in the U.S. military, only Walden opposed illegal aliens in the military.
American citizens and lawful immigrants should contact Rep. Mo Brooks and express their gratitude to the congressman for putting them first in line for employment in America’s armed forces.
