191 House Democrats Voted to Turn Illegals Into Felons

Contrary to what you’ll read in the liberal press, it was actually the vast majority of House Democrats — not Republicans — who voted to make felons out of illegal aliens.

And as a public service to our readers, our star intern Mandy Stoltzfus has broken down the list of the 191 Democrats who voted against an amendment that would have reduced the crime to a misdemeanor.

As Rep. Tom Tancredo (R.-Colo.) wrote it in a piece posted Tuesday (emphasis added):

Protestors tried to demonize those who want secure borders because it’s easier to hide behind nasty names and half truths than to articulate a position. It is not true that the House reform bill was intended to make felons of illegal aliens — Democrats inserted that provision as a poison pill. It is not true that we want to criminalize priests or hospitals that help illegal aliens — the House bill doesn’t substantially change the law that has been on the books for 20 years. The House bill does secure our borders and crack down on illegal employers and it refuses amnesty. Demonizing well-meaning Americans doesn’t play well in the heartland, and it’s not helpful to Congress as we grapple with this difficult issue.

So when you’re making your calls to Congress, see if your representative made the list. And when you call, be sure to ask them why they voted to make felons out of illegal aliens.
