Under a successful amendment offered by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA), illegal aliens who fail background checks would have to be turned in to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Given that most liberal Democrats
want to abolish ICE, this threw the whole Democratic caucus into a

stunned — trying to figure out whether to alienate their gun control
base or the illegal immigration advocates.
Democrats Show their True Colors by Failing to Protect Battered Women
Anti-gun Democrats also blocked Rep.
Lesko from offering an amendment to protect a battered woman who needs a
gun to protect herself against a violent stalker. Nancy Pelosi’s
leadership team ruled the amendment out of order.
Apparently, battered women are of no concern to Democrats unless they serve their anti-gun narrative.
Democrats added a face-saving
amendment on the floor yesterday, but it’s a joke. The amendment only
allows a battered woman to be given a firearm right before she is about
to be assaulted, but then she has to give it back as soon as the assault
Nancy Pelosi’s iron grip blocked many
possible improvements from ever being considered on the House floor —
such as amendments to protect veterans, police officers, concealed
carriers and more.
