A Democratic lawmaker is far more upset with federal immigration officials for doing their job rather than illegal aliens who break the law to infiltrate America.
On Thursday, Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego not only made threatening statements toward President Donald Trump, he also told Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents who are conducting deportations that they “will not be safe” from future punishment.

“If you are a U.S. government official and you are deporting Americans be warned,” Gallego tweeted. “When the worm turns you will not be safe because you were just following orders. You do not have to take part in illegal acts ordered by this President’s administration.”

Chris Crane, the president of the National ICE Council, told Fox News that Gallego’s comments were dangerous and that he was clearly attempting to bring harm toward ICE agents.
“It should be frightening to every American that a sitting member of Congress would threaten the safety of any person and their family, and incite the public to take acts of violence against them, let alone the lives of those whose job it is to protect us and keep us safe.”
Gallego’s sickening comments were in response to reports claiming the Trump administration has been denying passports to Hispanic-Americans at the U.S. southern border that were suspected of having fraudulent identities.
State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert hit back on Thursday, saying media reports are completely false and inaccurate:
“The facts don’t back up the Washington Post’s reporting. This is an irresponsible attempt to create division and stoke fear among American citizens while attempting to inflame tensions over immigration. Under the Trump Administration, domestic passport denials for so called ‘midwife cases’ are at a 6-year low. The reporting is a political cheap shot.”
Aside from the media losing its minds over what appears to be another fake news “bombshell” report, there are serious issues with Democratic lawmakers threatening the president and his administration’s officials.
Whether it’s Rep. Maxine Waters urging people to confront Trump officials in public; Rep. Alcee Hastings, D-FL, “joking” about Trump drowning to death in a river and how it would be a “catastrophe if anyone saves his a**“; New York Democrat Gov. saying America “was never really that great”; Democratic New York congressman Sean Patrick Maloney calling Trump supporters “a**holes” and saying he “doesn’t give a f***” about listening to the president; or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi implying Democrats lie to beat Trump; or Gallego threatening ICE agents who are conducting deportations that they “will not be safe” from future punishment for literally doing their jobs — this is what the Democratic Party has become.
Ever notice how Democrats never seem to offer better ideas to counter Trump and the GOP? Many seem to jump straight to violence and threats.
