Congressman Calls for DOJ to Label Antifa a Domestic Terror Organization


Congressman Jim Banks calls on DOJ to label Antifa a domestic terror organization

 A number of people were violently attacked by Antifa thugs during Saturday’s rally, including gay Asian journalist Andy Ngo who was hospitalized with suspected brain bleed following the assault.

 Following the attacks, Senator Ted Cruz called on law enforcement to find and prosecute the “violent felons” behind the attack. Cruz also demanded an investigation into Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler for failing to do anything to prevent the violence.

 A White House petition was also setup, demanding that the Trump administration label Antifa as domestic terrorists.

 This prompted Congressman Jim Banks to call on President Trump, the DOJ and the FBI to investigate Antifa and declare them a domestic terrorist organization

“In light of events this weekend in Portland, Oregon, I call on @POTUS, @TheJusticeDept, & @FBI to investigate #Antifa & declare them a domestic terrorist organization. Their avowal of violence & routine intimidation, harassment, & assault of Americans has no place in our country,” the Indiana Congressman tweeted.

Summit.news reports: This is not the first time that Antifa, which is vehemently defended by many media personalities on the left, has been bracketed in the context of domestic terror.

 Back in July 2017, the Department of Homeland Security in New Jersey officially listedAntifa as a domestic terrorist organization after a rash of violent attacks by the group targeting supporters of Donald Trump.

“In the past year, Antifa groups have become active across the United States, employing a variety of methods to disrupt demonstrations,” stated the advisory, before going on to list a number of violent disruptions, including Milo Yiannopoulos’ speaking event at the University of California Berkeley on February 1st, which was cancelled after members of Antifa violently attacked free speech advocates.

 According to a January 2017 Politico report, federal authorities had been warning state and local authorities since early 2016 that Antifa was engaging in “domestic terrorist violence”.

New York's Green Light Law - Allows Illegal Aliens To Get Driver’s Licenses

New York passed a law to allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses earlier this year but it was held up by challenges.

Now it is set to take effect this week.

In typical leftist fashion, supporters claim this is going to somehow make New York’s roads safer for everyone.

Could it really be about voting?

FOX News reports:

Illegal immigrants to be able to get driver’s licenses in NY after legal challenge fails.

Illegal immigrants in New York will able to obtain driver’s licenses starting next week after a last-minute legal challenge was dismissed — making it the 13th state to allow the practice, but one that critics say is unconstitutional.

The Green Light Law, signed by Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo earlier this year, allows anyone to apply for a driver’s license regardless of immigration status and does not require a Social Security number.

Illegal immigrants can use a combination of documents that include a valid passport from a foreign country and a valid foreign driver’s license, as long as it has been expired for less than two years.

“After waiting 18 years to have their right to drive restored, thanks to our legislature, New York can now officially join 12 other states in making driver’s licenses legally available to all residents,” New York Immigration Coalition Executive Director Steve Choi said in a statement this week, arguing that it will make roads safer and the economy stronger.

County clerks in New York have concerns and are sounding an alarm.

CBS News in Albany reports:

County clerks concerned by loopholes in Green Light law.

Undocumented immigrants now have the green light to get a driver’s license in New York…but several county clerks in the Capital Region are concerned.

Saratoga County Clerk Craig Hayner said, “We found that everything we were concerned about as far as fraud and all sorts of other things are in that bill, in that regulation and we’re very concerned.”

Hayner tells CBS6’s Lynsey Smith there are a few loopholes in the Green Light Law.

Loopholes, such as a person coming in to get their license and not having to provide their social security number.

“That could lead to criminals coming from other states, coming in and use that as a way to defraud by just simply saying they don’t have a social security number…and that’s a very dangerous loophole,” replied Hayner.

Does anyone believe this is going to make New York safer or that this is really about driving?

Delusional Democrats
