Dems charge ahead on immigration

Hispanic Democrats are charging ahead with plans to move a comprehensive immigration reform bill this year, bolstered by recently secured support from some of the party’s top brass.

Leaders of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) are drafting a measure that some Democratic leaders say they are ready to bring to the floor after the chamber tackles legislation that would both create a path to citizenship for so-called Dreamers under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and strengthen protections for temporary protected status (TPS) beneficiaries.

“We need to move forward first on the DACA and the TPS — people who have been here making America better, creating jobs,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said this month during the Democrats’ retreat in Northern Virginia. “And then we need to move very quickly onto comprehensive immigration reform.”

The article offers zero details on any type of “comprehensive immigration reform”, but we do learn from it that even the squishy Gang Of Eight type legislation from 2013 might be too much in terms of border security for the Democrats new Democratic Socialist base to pass. They’ll certainly want to abolish ICE, do away with detention facilities, and give easy voting citizenship. Further, it’ll get shut down in the Senate, just like with DACA, particularly since DACA is all about just giving citizenship away with zero security measures.

Some CHC leaders are warning that there could be dire consequences for the party if House Democrats don’t have a comprehensive immigration bill to show Hispanic voters in November 2020.

They might be over-estimating the support from Hispanics who immigrated to the U.S. legally, went through the process, paid the fees, and earned their citizenship, as well as those who have been citizens for generations, even hundreds of years.

Democratic leaders appear keen to have a homegrown proposal to run on in 2020, particularly as a way to counter Trump next year, when he is all but certain to make immigration a centerpiece of his reelection campaign.

Democrats will be offering what is essentially a reward to people who entered the U.S. illegally/overstayed visas and took advantage of the nation’s generosity (not to mention their crimes like murder, rape, sexual assault on children, identity theft) while Trump will be offering security from people who break our laws. How will that work?

Still, a consensus bill is unlikely as Democratic leaders aim for legislation that delineates the party’s core position ahead of 2020.

“It is a very controversial issue and the president has made it even more controversial,” Hoyer said. “The populist mood on the right has made immigrants an enemy. They’re not an enemy. The immigration community has made America what it is. So we need to move forward on that.”

Perhaps many, even most, of illegals (notice Steny Hoyer can’t even call them illegals) are good people. It doesn’t matter. They broke our laws in entering the nation, and have zero remorse. They’re demanding food, clothing, shelter, medical care, education, jobs, citizenship, and the right to vote. Not asking. Demanding. That’s why the majority are against illegal immigration.

    Let us get this straight. According to Cons, illegal immigration is the greatest challenge threatening America, even labeled as a crisis and a national emergency.

    Yet, Cons do think the legislative branch should address it? Curious.

    “Let us get this straight. According to Cons, illegal immigration is the greatest challenge threatening America,” No, Elwood, according to Gallup. Immigration has risen to the #1 problem facing America since last July according to Gallup. You’re the guy who loves polls, well love this one!

    What problem do Americans face that is greater than illegal unknown aliens entering our sovereign nation without our consent and bringing with them documented disease, crime and criminals, sex slavery, gangs, poverty and probably terrorists? I can’t think of ANYTHING America needs less of right now than immigrants. Except leftists of course.

    American schools produce 100,000 illegal immigrant ‘Dreamers’ a year.
