Earl Francis Blumenauer (born August 16, 1948, age 72) is the Democratic party representative from Oregon's 3rd congressional district in the U.S. House. He was first elected to the House in a special election in 1996. Blumenauer is a sponsor of the communist Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and supports the abolition of borders and ICE.

Notwithstanding his viewpoints, Blumenauer is known for annually making hundreds of fruitcakes for his congressional colleagues during Christmas season.[1]

U.S. House of Representatives

Abolish ICE

On July 12, 2018 Rep. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) introduced H.R. 6361 in the House to abolish ICE.[2] Eight House Democrats signed on as cosponsors: Pramila Jayapal and D. Adam Smith of Washington; Adriano Espaillat, José Serrano, Nydia Velázquez, and Yvette Clarke, all from New York; Earl Blumenauer of Oregon; and James McGovern of Massachusetts. Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and other Democrats all rallied behind the “Abolish ICE” banner.
