On Wednesday, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted a resolution expressing support for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. Rep. Raul Grijalva cast the “no” vote among the Arizona representatives.

Rep. Ruben Gallego joined a majority of Democrats in voting “present.”

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) enforces federal laws governing border control, customs, trade and immigration to promote homeland security and public safety. ICE was created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the former U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service.

The final vote was 244-35, with 133 Democrats voting present.

Both Rep. Sinema and Rep. O’Halleran voted in favor of the resolution. The two liberal representatives have been forced to vote with Republicans during this election cycle in order to preserve their political futures.

  1. Get out there and support Sergio Arellano. The Grijalva machine is deep, corrupt & dirty. If you want change, Albert, here’s your chance. DACA = Democrats Against Citizens of America.

  2. Rep. Grijalva will join President Obama on the ash heap of history on November 7, 2018 when he is defeated by Sergio Arellano, a U S Army veteran. With any luck Raul `s daughter, TUSD School Board member Adelito Grijalva will also be defeated in November and TUSD will have the opportunity to began a much needed rehabilitation.
