Putting themselves on a list

Congress passed H.R.8 this past weekHouse Republicans managed to get a poison pill inserted into the bill requiring notification of I.C.E. if an illegal immigrant tries to buy a gun.

This upset Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez:

House Democrats exploded in recriminations Thursday over moderates bucking the party, with liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez threatening to put those voting with Republicans “on a list” for a primary challenge … But Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.), the unquestioned media superstar of the freshman class, upped the ante, admonishing the moderates and indicating she would help liberal activists unseat them in the 2020 election. Corbin Trent, a spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez, said she told her colleagues that Democrats who side with Republicans “are putting themselves on a list.” “She said that when activists ask her why she had to vote for a gun safety bill that also further empowers an agency that forcibly injects kids with psychotropic drugs, they’re going to want a list of names and she’s going to give it to them,” Trent said, referring to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement …”

I doubted the Senate would take up the bill before and with this amendment I believe the issue is dead for the session.  Democrats are more concerned with supporting illegals than with pleasing antigun activists.
