Jihad caucus demands Democrats Cut Off All Funding For Department of Homeland Security

And they want their Democratic colleagues who are negotiating on the border security question to include their demands in the debate and not agree to a deal on the budget until they get what they want.

From Free Beacon: 

Progressive members of Congress are pressuring their colleagues to cut funding for the Department of Homeland Security, threatening another government shutdown.
A copy of the “dear colleague” letter circulated from Reps. Ilhan Omar (D., Minn.), Ayanna Pressley (D., Mass.), Rashida Tlaib (D., Mich.), and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) details their demands concerning homeland security, the Daily Beast first reported Thursday. A member of Omar’s staff confirmed the letter’s authenticity in an email to the Washington Free Beacon.

The letter was distributed to the members of the bipartisan, bicameral committee responsible for reaching an arrangement to fund the government for the rest of fiscal year 2019.

The group is claiming that the DHS is not reporting deaths in a timely manner, avoiding congressional oversight and that their funds are being used for other federal projects.

The group is also upset that the DHS dares to “prosecute immigrants who are part of the fabric of our community.”

How dare DHS prosecute illegal aliens! For shame! Stop enforcing laws, we say! “In solidarity.”

“With the world watching and the lives of families at stake, we should not compromise our values at the negotiating table,” they argue.

Wouldn’t denying DHS money not only harm Americans and actually cut off the ability to properly care for illegal aliens who are in DHS custody?
