Kamala Harris is doubling down on her open borders advocacy.
Politico reported that on April 3, 2019 the 2020 presidential contender introduced legislation that would allow Dreamers to work as staffers or interns in Congress.
This is a move that parallels Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke’s recent strategies to curry favor with the ever-growing Hispanic demographic.
Harris’ bill lifts a present ban on Dreamers working in Congress. Her legislative push comes after recent trips to Nevada and Texas, two states with large Hispanic segments.
Hundreds of thousands of DACA recipients have already been granted permits to work legally in the United States, and now they are upping the demands by calling for pathways to citizenship.
In a statement, Harris said “The giant sign outside my office says ‘DREAMers Welcome Here’ because we know and value the contributions that these young people have made to their communities.”
From these latest moves, it looks like immigration will be the biggest issue in 2020 for both parties.
BLP reported that immigration is the number #1 issue for GOP voters, but for different reasons. These voters fear that mass migration could dramatically alter the socio-economic environment of America.
Michelle Malkin warned about the perils of both legal and illegal immigration at CPAC as well, and even called out Republican business interests for promoting immigration expansion.
Certain conservative outlets like the Red Elephants broke down how expedited citizenship programs could create a significant voting bloc that would favor Democrats by 2050 and beyond.
Democrats are starting to recognize this demographic advantage and are pushing the pathway to citizenship angle as much as possible.
The pathway to citizenship route could be the Democrat’s go-to strategy to secure power in future elections.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
