Kamala Harris Wants Illegals to Run Congress
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.
