‘The squad’ opposed to law barring sexual predators and terrorists from being hired at TSA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s still not entirely clear why 174 House Democrats voted against an amendment to the Rights for Transportation Security Officers Act, that would ensure people who’ve been convicted of sex crimes, terrorism, and other violent offenses can’t be hired by the Transportation Safety Administration.

The opposition was led by the “squad” of four radical Democratic freshman lawmakers, to include Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., according to

For what it’s worth, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., did not vote on the amendment, which passed with the support of 42 Democrats, who voted along with Republicans, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Ariz., said before the vote was held: “We have two options today: Adopt the Underwood amendment and keep sexual predators off of the federal payroll, or reject it and reward sexual predators with a paycheck from the taxpayer.”

De facto leader Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of her “squad” have been preoccupied with trying to get fellow socialist Bernie Sanders elected as the Democratic nominee to go up against President Trump. AOC has not tweeted about Thursday’s vote.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R., Calif., has his own ideas about why the Democrats opposed the efforts to safeguard the public from sexual predators, saying the “socialist wing of the Democratic Party controls the floor.”

“A Democratic member, Congresswoman [Lauren] Underwood, had the amendment and wanted to offer it,” McCarthy said. “It 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,” he added. “But the socialist wing of the party, that controls now the Democratic Party, said that that could not be offered.”

The Free Beacon noted that Speaker Pelosi and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D- Md., did not respond to a request for comment.

Nor did Ocasio-Cortez, Omar, Tlaib, and Pressley.

A top Republican aide cited the progressive group that got Ocasio-Cortez elected, Justice Democrats, to charge that Democratic leadership is being controlled by the group.

Still one must wonder why progressive Democrats want sexual predators employed at the TSA. Or is it terrorists they’re more interested in running cover for?
