COME ON DOWN! US Rep. Introduces Bill Offering American Asylum for Canadian ‘Freedom Truckers’

Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) will introduce legislation in the coming days that offers asylum in the United States for those involved in Canada’s ‘Freedom Trucker’ convoy.

“Just as we provide asylum for political prisoners, we should do the same for truckers who have been subjected to violence, had their property confiscated, and their bank accounts frozen by a government that is quickly becoming the embarrassment of the free world,” Herrell said in a statement on Twitter.

“I am introducing legislation that would temporarily grant asylum to innocent Canadian protesters who are being persecuted by their own government. We cannot be silent as our neighbors to the north are treated so badly,” she added.

This is a developing story.
