Only 18 Democrats Vote Yes on Resolution Supporting ICE

One noteworthy no vote came from Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D.), who is the Democratic nominee in the Texas Senate election this year. He called the resolution a cynical bill "to give a blanket endorsement to the practices of ICE."
Free Beacon


"The House passed a resolution Wednesday in support of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), the law enforcement agency that some Democrats now want to abolish.
"The measure praised ICE's work countering the narcotics trade and combatting human trafficking, Fox News reported. It further argued that without ICE, more Americans would suffer from drug abuse.
"In total, 133 Democrats voted present, 43 voted no on the resolution, and 18 voted yes.
"Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) called it a "meaningless stunt" and said he voted present because the House had "more important things to do."
Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D.) NO!
"House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D., Md.) echoed that sentiment, saying "This is exactly the kind of ‘gotcha vote' which alienates Americans from their government … Democrats refuse to play the Republicans' game."
"Rep. Marc Pocan (D., Wisc.), who has sponsored an "Abolish ICE" bill, voted present.
"Half of the Democrats in the House that hail from districts won by Donald Trump in 2016 voted in support of the resolution.
"One noteworthy no vote came from Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D. Pictured), who is the Democratic nominee in the Texas Senate election this year." . . .
