Trump's GOP Enablers In The US House Of Representatives (Western PA Edition)

All but 4 GOP members of the US House Of Representatives voted against this.

The resolution states that it's a resolution:

Condemning President Trump’s racist comments directed at Members of Congress.

And it ends with this text:
Resolved, That the House of Representatives—

(1) believes that immigrants and their descendants have made America stronger, and that those who take the oath of citizenship are every bit as American as those whose families have lived in the United States for many generations;

(2) is committed to keeping America open to those lawfully seeking refuge and asylum from violence and oppression, and those who are willing to work hard to live the American Dream, no matter 10their race, ethnicity, faith, or country of origin; and

(3) strongly condemns President Donald Trump’s racist comments that have legitimized and increased fear and hatred of new Americans and people of color by saying that our fellow Americans who are immigrants, and those who may look to the President like immigrants, should ‘‘go back’’ to other countries, by referring to immigrants and asylum seekers as ‘‘invaders,’’ and by saying that Members of Congress who are immigrants (or those of our colleagues who are wrongly assumed to be immigrants) do not belong in Congress or in the United 1States of America.
In order to protect Donald Trump, this is what all but four GOP members of the house voted against.

That would include these gentlemen:
  • Guy Reschenthaler (PA-14)
  • Mike Kelly (PA-16)
  • Glenn Thompson (PA-15)
  • John Joyce (PA-13)
No matter what they say in their own defense, the bottom line is that they voted to protect Donald Trump and his racist tweets.

Did you know that:
So instead of pointing that out, representatives Reschenthaler, Kelly, Thompson, Joyce, and all but four of the GOP members if the US House of Representatives voted to protect the man who tweeted the racist tweets.

It is a step up from a broad resolution condemning all forms of bigotry..
