Dem Jared Polis Freaks Out On House Floor

It was for the children or something

(The Hill) Rep. Jared Polis (D-Colo.) on Wednesday night lost his cool on the House floor over the issue of immigration, after the presiding officer warned another Democrat not to refer to people sitting in the House gallery.

Democrats were calling for House passage of a comprehensive immigration bill, and Rep. Joe Garcia (D-Fla.) used his remarks to note supporters of such a bill that were sitting in the gallery.

He was told not to address the people in the gallery, which is Against The Rules. But, Rules only matter if they help Democrats, ya know

“Madame Speaker, the gentle people in the gallery… would not have to be in the gallery… advocating if this House simply took up the bill,” he began. “Do you think they want to be spending their time here, Madame Speaker? Is that what you think?”

“And you’re saying we’re addressing them, and that’s what you’re upset about Madame Speaker?” he continued, moving into a full scream. “I want you, Madame Speaker, to address the reason that they are here! They are here because our government is tearing apart their families, Madame Speaker!”

Getting beyond his meltdown (check out the vid at the link), let’s consider something: was Polis implying that illegal aliens were sitting in the House gallery? Who authorized them to be there? One has to obtain a ticket to sit in the gallery from a House members office. If you are a foreigner, you can get a limited time ticket. A US citizen can get a lifetime pass. I have one from former NC 13th District rep Brad Miller’s office. Interestingly, I had to show ID to obtain it. I also had to show ID to get in to the House gallery. Did sitting members of the House of Representatives give tickets to people who are in this country illegally? Would that not constitute a crime? Yes. Yes it would.

    Demo-liberal congress-critters are exempted/above the law. The laws are for us little people, not our elites for they are our moral superiors. We don’t know how to behave so they must make laws for us. Don’t ja know?

    I expect an illegal unconstitutional amnesty bill to pass the House. They passed a extension to the undetectable gun parts ban. They’ve not undone anything at all this year of substance.

    They’ve done nothing on the Feds gun running that led to the murder of 2 fed agents and hundreds of mexicans. Done nothing on Benghazi murders. Haven’t done anything of note on IRS scandal. Have not freed up red tape on power generation. Have not made life easier for folks during this economic depression. Have postured and preened like the Socialists.

    Wait until you all find out they will pass amnesty for 100 million illegal aliens (Obama being one) and NOT 11 or 12 million like they are claiming and lying about. What a shocker that will be. We’ll all end up with PTSD after this administration leaves in 2016.

    This is something that I don’t understand, how do we or our government tear apart families? If your parents are here illegally and are asked to leave, then the children can most certainly go with them. No one is preventing that. And, to see a difference between say the US and Mexico that is so repugnant, well that is racist, bigoted, and prejudicial. So, what is wrong with these people returning to their country of origin?

  5. Blick says:

    I propose the Congress adopt the Mexican law on immigration and apply it to the illegals in the USA. It would be the same law on both sides of the border. That would simplify things.

    All of you are tiresomely racist exclusion it’s who are so passé. Case in point: try to win the presidency next time, lunatic fringe. Can’t wait for younger generations to lead this country; out with the old!

    “All of you are tiresomely racist exclusion it’s who are so passé.” Well, I hope the younger generation are better at sentence construction.
