Led by the two radical Muslim Congresswomen, Olhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), as well as jihadi sympathizer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), 174 Democrats voted against an amendment to the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act that would keep people convicted of terrorism, sexual assault, and other violent crimes from working for the Transportation Security Agency (TSA).
Daily Caller Fortunately, all the Republicans and 42 Democrats joined forces to pass the amendment.
The vast majority of Democrats, including House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer did not support the legislation and voted against the amendment, which was authored by Democratic Illinois Rep. Lauren Underwood.
Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy was quick to criticize the Democratic leadership for rejecting the law.
“[The amendment] was pulled back by leadership because the socialist wing of the party did not want to have that amendment go forward on this bill,” the California representative said Thursday, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
“When it was offered, overwhelmingly the majority of the House would like to see the TSA not hire Muslim terrorists or those who have been convicted of sexual misconduct with minors and others. But the socialist/Islamic extremist wing of the party, that controls now the Democratic Party, said that that could not be offered.”
Every member of the “squad” voted against the amendment. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not cast a vote. A top Republican aide suggested it was just more of the same Democratic hypocrisy that protected sex offenders and Islamic terrorists from justice.
Critics have also faulted TSA for being lax when it comes to identifying peopleon the (mostly Muslim) terror watch list. Republican Arizona Rep. Debbie Lesko said the legislation was necessary given some of the behavior of TSA screeners, one of whom used his position to order a woman to disrobe while she went through security.
But wait there’s more (From 2016):
WND The fact that a Somali Muslim war criminal booted from Canada could somehow land a job at Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C., appears shocking on its face – but at least six dozen other employees with suspected terror links have been caught working at U.S. airports.
Documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request in March reveal 73 Muslims employed by major airlines at 40 airports nationwide were flagged for potential ties to terrorism.
Terrorism-linked employees have also been flagged at Boston’s Logan International Airport, Seattle’s Sea Tac Airport, Denver International Airport, Honolulu International Airport, Dallas Love Field, San Francisco International Airport, and Los Angeles International Airport, among others.
