AOC, Omar, Tlaib & 171 Other Dems Refuses To Ban Terrorists & Sex Criminals From TSA [ICYMI]

The bill was simple enough. It was an amendment that said the TSA cannot hire sexual predators.

Yet, the vast majority of Democrats tried to kill the bill.

Republican House Leader Kevin McCarthy said:

“[The amendment] was pulled back by leadership because the socialist wing of the party did not want to have that amendment go forward on this bill. When it was offered, overwhelmingly the majority of the House would like to see the TSA not hire terrorists or those who have been convicted of sexual misconduct with minors and others. But the socialist wing of the party, that controls now the Democratic Party, said that that could not be offered.”

According to Charlie Kirk, OAC and Omar, Tlaib voted against the amendment.

From The Daily Caller:

A top Republican aide suggested it was just more of the same Democratic hypocrisy that protected sex offenders from justice.

“It’s no surprise that Democrat logic in 2020 means taking marching orders from Justice Democrats to give TSA the ability to hire the Harvey Weinsteins of the world,” the aide told the Free Beacon. “A ‘second chance’ for sex offenders shouldn’t include patting down traveling families.”

Critics have also faulted TSA for being lax when it comes to identifying people on the terror watch list. TSA agents were charged with trying to smuggle 20 tons of cocaine from Puerto Rico.

Republican Arizona Rep. Debbie Lesko said the legislation was necessary given some of the behavior of TSA screeners, one of whom used his position to order a woman to disrobe while she went through security.
