House Democrat Ruben Gallego Says He Wants Government To Seize And Redistribute Truckers’ Vehicles

Arizona Democratic Rep. Ruben Gallego tweeted Tuesday his desire for authorities to seize trucks blocking highways near Washington, D.C., and redistribute them to other trucking businesses.

“Perfect time to impound and give the trucks to small trucking companies looking to expand their business,” Gallego wrote in response to a news report warning that a convoy of truckers could shut down the highways surrounding the nation’s capital.

Several organizations have planned to launch trucker convoys in various cities across the U.S., including Washington, D.C., to protest COVID-19 restrictions and vaccine mandates.

One of the “Freedom Convoy” organizers, Bob Bolus, announced plans to clog Washington freeways and disrupt traffic in the city like a “boa constrictor.”

“That basically squeezes you, chokes you, and then swallows you,” Bolus said. “And that’s what we’re going to do to D.C.”

Gallego’s comments follow remarks made by Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson expressing his intent to sell trucks impounded following the Freedom Convoy protests.

“I’ve asked our solicitor and our city manager, how can we keep the tow trucks and the campers and the vans and everything else that we’ve confiscated, and sell those pieces of equipment to help recoup some of the costs that our taxpayers are absorbing,” Watson said Saturday. “So that’s one of the provisions of the Emergency Act, and we have been a beneficiary of the Emergency Act.”

Gallego’s office did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.

  1. You must be a young one, want everyone else to work there butts off and hand it to you. They have a RIGHT to stand up for their rights. There are their trucks not yours and you don’t deserve everything for FREE earn it like they did!!!!

  2. Does he not realize the truckers are in solidarity with each other? You can seize the vehicles, sell them off, and the people you sold them to will give them right back to the people they were taken from. What exactly is he hoping to accomplish? Having his vehicles repo’d and crushed due to some “confusion with the paperwork”? Cuz truckers will make that shit happen.

    1. He doesn’t work for your sorry ass. He works for his district. And they’re likely to be overwhelmingly supportive.

  3. SEEMS LIKE AMERICA IS FACING GOVERNMENT SANCTIONED DISTRIBUTION OF ILLEGALS TO TAKE OVER AMERICAN BLUE COLLAR JOBS
