Democratic Rep. Joe Crowley collapses during immigration protest

House Democratic Chairman Joe Crowley collapsed during a protest in Washington on the Trump administration's immigration policy that has been separating parents and children at the southern border.

Crowley, who is from New York, was participating in the protest alongside his Democratic colleagues in the House.

Lauren French, the spokesperson for Crowley, told CNN he is fine and had collapsed due to heat exhaustion.

1. He should get "the medal of honor"

for his voluntarily actions.
"The Medal of Honor. The Medal of Honor is the highest award for valor in action against an enemy force which can be bestowed upon an individual serving in the Armed Services of the United States. Generally presented to its recipient by the President of the United States of America in the name of Congress."

I know he wasn't in the military but he did show "valor against an enemy force"

3. This is why it bugs me when people on here say, Oh, none of the Dems are DOING anything.

Yeah, they are. Courageous acts like this one to go out and stand in heat to draw attention to a stupid policy.

Polis and 57 other House members who courageously voted 'yes' on impeachment articles in December 2017.

The Congressional Black Caucus.

John Lewis.

Jimmy Carter.

Al Franken (still smarting over that!)

Maxine Waters.

Many, many others.

The volunteer who called me today to remind me to vote in the primary (both wife and I have already).

The huge number of people who came to the State Democratic Party Assembly in Colorado who were first-timers.

Our job needs to be to get out that vote and get sane people in power at all levels.

AND WE WILL!!!!!!!!!!!!

So thanks for posting this.
