Bipartisan Standing Ovation on House Floor for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime

In one of the most optimistic signs for ending the border security stalemate between the White House and the Democrat-led House of Representatives, lawmakers on both sides of the aisle were moved to give victims of illegal alien crimes a standing ovation on the chamber floor. The symbolic gesture happened on Wednesday as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy read out 50 names of Americans, many of them policemen, killed by illegal immigrants as evidence of why the “status quo” keeping open borders must end. Quoth McCarthy: There have been 266,000 criminal aliens arrested in the last two years. This includes charges or convictions of 100,000 assaults, nearly 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.

The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday gave victims of illegal alien crimes a bipartisan standing ovation on the floor of the chamber as House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy read out the names of Americans killed by illegal aliens in a lengthy speech.

McCarthy began his speech bashing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s strategy on the government funding battle that has protected the “status quo” on immigration, a system that has led to serious consequences for American citizen victims of illegal immigration.

McCarthy said on the House floor:

At a time when the country expects its leaders in Washington to look forward, this House majority is looking backward. When our country expects solutions, they are using this chamber to settle political scores. As hundreds of thousands of Americans painfully experienced, portions of our federal government were shut down for 35 days. A shameful record under this majority’s watch.
