Wait, so AOC and the Dem majority were against ICE being notified if illegal immigrants tried to purchase a gun? So the Dems are more supportive of illegal immigration than they are of gun control!? Or am I reading that wrong?

hey..... at least she's all about transparency and collaboration.

Ocasio-Cortez warns of 'list' for moderate Dems who vote with Republicans: report

After more than two dozen moderate Democrats broke from their party's progressive wing and sided with Republicans on a legislative amendment Wednesday, New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reportedly sounded the alarm in a closed-door meeting Thursday and said those Democrats were "putting themselves on a list."

The legislation that prompted the infighting was a bill that would expand federal background checks for gun purchases, the Washington Post reported. But a key provision requiring U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to be notified if illegal immigrants attempt to purchase guns saw 26 moderate Democrats side with Republicans.
Ironically, she's put herself on plenty of lists.

Good to know she is not only bullying and trying to control conservatives, but also her own party. Wonder when was the last time a first term congressperson threatened her own party with lists regarding their voting? To those who argue that "Socialism has never been tried" it would seem AOC has been an ardent student of exactly how it works.

She isn't the only one bullying the democratic party.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi began the meeting by chastising the two dozen moderates who voted on Tuesday in favor of a Republican amendment to a gun control bill that requires gun retailers to report illegal immigrants who attempt to buy a gun.
“We are either a team or we’re not, and we have to make that decision,” Pelosi said, two people who were present told the Washington Post.
At least it is out in the open (not that it is a surprise) that the democratic representatives are working for the democratic agenda and aren't allowed to vote on what their constituents might want.:thumbdown: I guess we shouldn't call them representatives at all.

Call me naive, but I could swear the job of a congress member was to represent the will of their constituency, not to pander to internal committees and run around with the belief they are our task masters and know what is best for us. The FCC and DOJ should fine any candidate that claims they will represent a constituency as they are blatant lies.

It can be hard keeping all the African Americans safely on the Democratic plantation. Some of them go all Djanjo Freeman and want to think for themselves. That is not acceptable. Have to bring those types to heel and insult them with Uncle Tom, or Cracker etc.

I mean the Rebulicans act like they ended slavery or enacted the Civil Rights act or something!!! Uhm.... Wait.....
