Open Borders Kirsten Gillibrand Now Wants Driver’s Licenses, Amnesty For Illegal Aliens, Loves Sanctuary Cities

Kirsten Gillibrand has already jumped on the Abolish ICE bandwagon, wanting to get rid of it and “re-imagine it.” She was the first Senator to make the call. But, we aren’t supposed to think this is a call for open borders, of course. She’s against providing more money for a border barrier. Then this

In latest reversal, Gillibrand now supports letting illegal immigrants get driver’s licenses

After initially opposing the idea of her home state granting driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has had a change of heart.

“I think we have to make it possible for people to provide for their families,” the New York Democrat said Wednesday, as she was leaving to attend her 2020 presidential campaign kickoff event.

Gillibrand’s new stand on the issue is in contrast from the position she took during her days in the House, when she opposed then-Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s controversial 2007 plan to allow illegal immigrants living in New York to obtain driver licenses.

“I do not support giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants,” Gillibrand said back then, the Washington Free Beacon reported. At the time, Gillibrand said she supported legislation that required anyone seeking a drivers’ license to show proof of citizenship first.

At a Wednesday news conference in Troy – a city of about 50,000 residents just outside Gillibrand’s birthplace, the state capital Albany – the second-term senator said her heart has guided her policy reversals on issues such as gun control, granting amnesty to illegal immigrants and her opposition to sanctuary cities, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

She flipped on gun control (so she says), which is an attempt to reel in a few votes. She now supports amnesty for illegals, sanctuary cities, and the driver’s licenses for illegals. To the Free Beacon

“I think we have to make it possible for people to provide for their families,” Gillibrand told the New York Daily News on Wednesday outside a diner in Brunswick, New York. “We need comprehensive immigration reform. Without doing that, you’re not going to get the problem solved for the rest of the country.”

Giving more people the impetus to come illegally/overstay visas is not exactly a position of closed borders, nor are amnesty and sanctuary jurisdictions.

Those are just a few quick headlines. And there are many, many others, including ones about MS-13 gang members operating in NY.

Unless you are going to shut the border down and put in harsh, tough measures to stop most illegal immigration (which includes people coming illegally and overstaying visas) from occurring, to make sure that the people who just show up and demand asylum (which most do not get) at ports of entry are not released after which they disappear into the nation, and stop giving reasons for people to come illegally, amnesty cannot be implemented. Democrats won’t talk about any security and measures which give reasons to people to not be here illegally (such as massive civil and criminal penalties on entities that hire illegals, refusing to educate them and their kids, and more). We saw this with the DACA debate. They wanted a clean bill, amnesty for the so-called Dreamers, with no border security or any security included.

But we’re not supposed to call them open borders.

    massive civil and criminal penalties on entities that hire illegal

    Hardly a need to point out that your president hires illegal immigrants. In the two years of GOP control, why didn’t they propose penalties for employers? Is it because most of the crooks are Republican voters/donors?

    Will The Wall stop many that overstay their visas?

    Will The Wall stop drugs coming in? (BTW – if there was no demand for drugs in the US there would be no need for supply).

    Do terrorists really cross the desert and climb a fence?

    Has there been an increase in border crossers over the years?

    I only checked two citations:

    GUYANESE IMMIGRANT WENT ON FIRE-BOMBING SPREE IN NEW YORK
    He was not an illegal immigrant, and admitted firebombing an Islamic mosque, a Hindu temple, bodegas and a crack house.

    ILLEGAL ALIEN FROM SUDAN RAPED 11-YEAR-OLD GIRL IN NEW YORK
    He was not an illegal immigrant, and is psychotic and in prison, likely to be deported when he serves his sentence.

    How does this “evidence” support building the Trump Wall? Is this the best you have?

      Yep, just proves nignorant doesn’t actually read the citations.
      Nothing new here from the little colored fella.
