Excitable Debbie Wasserman-Schultz To Introduce “Bipartisan” Bill To Protect Illegal Alien Child Sponsors

It’s all about attempting to protect those who are illegally present in the U.S. while also enticing more to come illegally

Bill would block ICE from arresting immigrant child sponsors

A bipartisan group of lawmakers are seeking to prevent the Trump administration from arresting undocumented immigrants who come forward to take care of undocumented immigrant children who are in the country alone, after CNN reported such arrests were happening.

A bill set to be introduced Tuesday comes as both the number of immigrant children in government custody and the length of time those children are being detained are skyrocketing. The Trump administration’s own policies are at least partly responsible for the increase in both numbers and hundreds of children are being sent to a temporary tent facility in Texas set up to accommodate them.

The bill would bar the government from using a sponsor’s undocumented status as a reason to deny releasing a child to them, and it would prevent the Department of Homeland Security from using information provided by a potential child sponsor to arrest or deport an undocumented immigrant.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, a Florida Democrat, said CNN’s reporting had prompted her to draft the legislation, which will be introduced with at least a dozen other Democrats and GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo of Florida.

Oooooh, one Republican, who is about as squishy as it gets on illegal immigration. Think CNN would call it bipartisan if a dozen Republicans and one Democrat were set to introduce a bill on limiting late term abortion?

CNN confirmed last month that dozens of immigrants who came forward to sponsor children out of custody had been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement from July to September, 70% of whom were arrested only on immigration violations.

Perhaps it’s not the best idea to place children with people who have already shown that they’ll violate the laws of the U.S., especially when we know nothing about them. This bill by DWS is actually amending the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 to make it so that DHS can never use the information about the sponsors being illegal against them ever. And, it’s interesting that she would use this Act in placing children who were sent by their parents, or trafficked, with people who are unknown.
