Rep. Al Green Files Articles of Impeachment Against President Trump


Democratic Rep. Al Green files articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump

Green’s move could force a vote on the measure this week, according to reports.

 The Democratic lawmaker from Texas hopes to capitalize on the political chaos from Trump’s recent tweets in which he urged far-left members of Congress “to go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

Breitbart.com reports: “To condemn a racist President is not enough, we must impeach him,” Green said, according to NBC News. “This will be a defining vote.”

“What do you do when the leader of the free world is a racist? What do you do? Well, here’s what you do. You file a resolution condemning the president for racist comments directed at members of Congress,” Green reportedly said on the House floor.

He continued:

What do you do? You file articles of impeachment impeaching the President of the United States of America. These two things are not mutually exclusive. We can do this, condemn for the comments that have been made. And we can do this, impeach for the harm that the comments are causing to the society.

 According to the articles of impeachment, Trump is “unfit to defend the ideals that have made America great.”

Green also released a statement Monday, detailing his position further:

The President of the United States is a racist, a bigot, a misogynist, as well as an invidious prevaricator. To say that Donald John Trump is unfit for the Office of the President of the United States is an understatement. He is unfit for public office, and if he displayed any of these behaviors in most private companies, he would be summarily terminated with haste.

I was not told to speak out on the bigotry emanating from the White House. I was compelled to speak out. I believe there is a moral imperative to look racism, bigotry, misogyny, and hate in the face and rebuke it; to convey to our children that this type of behavior is unacceptable and that these beliefs are not welcome in the United States of America.

 This could amount to a nightmare for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has repeatedly stiff-armed attempts to impeach the president, purportedly out of fear that it could jeopardize the Democrats’ chances of retaining the House in 2020.

 While she has softened her tone, telling CNN’s Manu Raju in June that impeachment is “not off the table,” she has not acted beyond the rhetoric. In May, Pelosi said that Trump was “goading” Democrats to impeach him.

According to the Hill’s Whip List, 84 Democrats support impeachment.

This is Green’s third time forcing action on impeaching the president.

SICK: New Jersey Awarded $3.8 Million In Financial Aid To Illegal Aliens


 A local news report revealed that the state of New Jersey awarded $3.8 million in financial aid to illegal immigrants during the 2018-2019 school year.

According to a report from NJ.com, the state of New Jersey gave $3.8 million in financial aid to 749 illegal immigrant students in the last academic year. More than a quarter of the funding went to 328 illegal immigrants that attend Rutgers University.

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed a law last year that allowed illegal immigrants to apply for financial aid. Prior to the signing, illegal immigrants were permitted to apply to pay in-state tuition at public universities but they were not eligible for financial aid.

Murphy, who supports the spending, hit back at Republican critics by arguing that giving financial aid to illegal immigrants is compatible with American values.

“I’d even invite any of those folks who have that attitude, beginning with our president, to come on into this room and allow me or any of us to say, ‘This is the United States of America,’” Murphy said at the time.

David J. Socolow, executive director of the state’s Higher Education Student Assistance Authority, defended the state’s decision to offer financial aid to illegal immigrants.

“This financial assistance offers these New Jersey students a life-changing opportunity,” Socolow said in a brief comment.“The successes of these first 513 students, who are now attending county colleges, state colleges and universities, and independent institutions around the state, will have a positive impact on countless additional lives.”

According to the report, there is currently no limit on the amount of illegal immigrant students that are permitted to receive financial aid from the state of New Jersey. State lawmakers forecast that they will spend approximately $5 million on financial aid for illegal immigrants each year.
