(National Sentinel)Â Out-Lefting a Leftist: Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley of New York, after serving 10 terms, was defeated in a primary last month by a member of the Democratic Socialists of America, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Since her victory, Ocasio-Cortez has become the new face of the extreme Left. She is also becoming more popular among Democratic voters because Democratic votersÂ love free stuffÂ and Ocasio-Cortez is promising themÂ the moon like all socialist leaders do.
But because she and Sen. Bernie Sanders are moving the Democratic Party to the extreme Left, other Democrats are following herÂ because they see the writing on the wall and they want to stay in Washington where the perks are good.
So it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Crowley, who’s trying to remain relevant and electable as a third-party candidate,Â is moving as far Left as Ocasio-Cortez.
That’s the only way to explain why he would actually come out andÂ suggest, as a serious policy, thatÂ American taxpayers be forced to compensateÂ illegal aliens!Â
You can’t make this stuff up. AsÂ Lifezette reports:
A Democrat in this country has actually suggested taxpayers pay lawbreakers for â€” you guessed it â€” breaking our laws.
Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) believes illegal immigrants should receive financial compensation for their treatment after crossing the U.S. border â€” since children were separated from lawbreaking adults, as is customary in the U.S. (many families have since been reunited with each other).
â€œTo have these children depart, separated, is one of the most reprehensible things Iâ€™ve ever witnessed in my 20 years of service here in the House of Representatives,â€ Crowley said on Wednesday.
â€œThese children need to be reunited with their parents immediately,â€ he added.
â€œOnce again, the administrationâ€™s actions in the first place, with the inability to restore these families, is reprehensible.â€
Oh, but this gets even more unbelievable: â€œThe damage that has been done to these children will be lifelong â€” to these family units will be lifelong, as well,â€ he continued. â€œIn fact, I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them. The first form of compensation needs to be the full reunification of these families.â€
Reparations for lawbreakers?
IfÂ anything, the American taxpayersÂ should be getting compensatedÂ by the countries who areÂ sending us their unemployed, their poor, and their criminals because once they get here it’s the American taxpayer whoÂ foots the bill.
This ridiculous proposal isn’t going anywhere, but youÂ wait and see: The idea will catch on with other Democrats whoÂ are lurching to the Left in order to remain extreme enough for their growing far-Left base.
Crowley is now trying toÂ out-Left a Leftist so he can remain in office.
