Kamala Harris Apparently Promised To Protect An Illegal Alien Family

The Constitution give Congress the power “To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization” in Article I, Section 8, as well as to “repel invasions.” Congress has passed numerous laws regarding illegal immigration, including ones that penalize those who give aid and shelter to illegals. The Executive Office is tasked with upholding and enforcing those laws, and takes an oath to do so. So, what are we to think of this?

I Met With Vice President Harris, and She Promised to Protect My Undocumented Family

For my mom, my safety and my future have always felt more valuable than her own. She has often told me that if I were to become a US citizen that will be enough for her, even if it means she remains undocumented. All the nights spent worrying about my future and about whether she made the right choice to seek a better life for our family here would feel lighter knowing that, at the very least, her child could live a stable life as a citizen.

Your mom could have emigrated legally to the U.S. She chose not to in violation of U.S. law.

But as I’ve come to learn, stability for me cannot be possible without stability for my entire family. Even if DACA were to remain in place, it continues to exclude people like my parents, leaving them vulnerable to the threat of deportation. That’s why, two months ago, when I walked into the White House to meet with Vice President Kamala Harris, I carried with me a vision for what a safe, stable life for my family and millions more just like ours, can look like. It was during that meeting that I shared with the Vice President that I am pregnant with my first child. As she listened to me share what citizenship would mean for me and my family, she made a promise to fight for all of us and to keep my family together.

Let’s think on this: the Vice President voluntarily met with people who are unlawfully present in the United States. These people are, by law, criminals. Yet, she did nothing. Under the law they should have been detained and, pending a hearing, deported. Because few qualify for any sort of status. So, Kamala broke federal law. Of course, nothing will happen to her. Unlike, say, if you were knowingly employing an illegal, and you would go to jail.

Much like my mother has done for me, I know with certainty that I would do anything to keep my baby safe. But keeping my baby safe means ensuring he can grow up in a home where he won’t have to worry about his mom or grandparents being deported. It means living a life where he won’t have to bear the weight of keeping our family afloat financially because employment has never been a certainty for his undocumented loved ones. It means a life where citizenship for his family isn’t simply a dream, but a reality.

We keep being told that the children should not be penalized for the criminal actions of the parents. Shouldn’t someone pay? Apparently not, according to the illegals.

Vice President Harris has the power to deliver citizenship for my family and millions more just like ours if she commits to following through on her word by any means necessary. That day in the White House with her, Vice President Harris looked in my eyes and promised she would fight for me. She would fight for my undocumented parents. And she would fight to keep my family together.

So, you come illegally, and now you’re demanding citizenship? I wonder what Susie Lujano would think if people started camping out on her lawn. Or her living room. Would she demand they be removed?

In moments of pain and trauma – moments where undocumented lives continue to be put on the line – we have always proven our resilience and our power. But our resilience to fight against anti-immigrant attacks is just as much an indication of our courage and commitment to protecting our communities as it is a reminder that our country’s immigration system is, by design, built to hurt us..

You’re not a victim. You’re a criminal. The immigration system was designed to control our borders, not hurt you specifically. You could have gone through the legal process, like so many. You chose to do it the wrong way.

DACA is not enough. Citizenship for just immigrant youth is not enough. To truly deliver on her promise to protect immigrant communities and to fight for my family, Vice President Harris must use her power to deliver an expansive and inclusive pathway to citizenship. At the end of my meeting with Vice President Harris, she turned to me to take a photo, sharing that this picture was her gift to me and my baby and that she would work hard to make sure my family would never be separated. This photo will forever be a reminder of whether or not Vice President Harris fulfills that promise.

What’s the recourse in charging Harris with multiple violations of U.S. immigration law? There’s one set of laws for the citizens, and one for the Elites.

    What federal law did Vice President Harris break? William whines that others would go to jail for hiring an “illegal”, which is moving the goalpost. DACA recipients can be legally employed (with EADs, see below) in the US, so no, you will not go to jail if you hire a DACA recipient. Anyway, Vice President Harris did not hire any DACA recipients, she spoke with them.

    Well, no. DACA recipients are documented – the US government knows who they are. And anyway, unlawful presence in the US is a civil, not a criminal matter. We understand William’s (and the far-right, in general) hatred of brown immigrants – or “dirt people” – as Kye describes them. We understand his hatred of Vice President Harris – no doubt someone Kye would describe as “dirt people”, being of mixed Black and Indian heritage. Only white, christian men can be “true” American patriots.

    Perhaps William doesn’t understand DACA:

    What Is DACA
    On June 15, 2012, the secretary of Homeland Security announced that certain people who came to the United States as children and meet several guidelines may request consideration of deferred action for a period of two years, subject to renewal. They are also eligible for work authorization. Deferred action is a use of prosecutorial discretion to defer removal action against an individual for a certain period of time. Deferred action does not provide lawful status.

    Guidelines
    You may request DACA if you:

    Were under the age of 31 as of June 15, 2012;
    Came to the United States before reaching your 16th birthday;
    Have continuously resided in the United States since June 15, 2007, up to the present time;
    Were physically present in the United States on June 15, 2012, and at the time of making your request for consideration of deferred action with USCIS;
    Had no lawful status on June 15, 2012, meaning that:
    You never had a lawful immigration status on or before June 15, 2012, or
    Any lawful immigration status or parole that you obtained prior to June 15, 2012, had expired as of June 15, 2012;
    Are currently in school, have graduated or obtained a certificate of completion from high school, have obtained a general education development (GED) certificate, or are an honorably discharged veteran of the Coast Guard or Armed Forces of the United States; and
    Have not been convicted of a felony, significant misdemeanor, or three or more other misdemeanors, and do not otherwise pose a threat to national security or public safety.

    From the DOJ:

    DACA recipients with current, unexpired Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) continue to be authorized to work.
    For the time being, workers who already have DACA can continue to renew their DACA EADs.

    It is not against the law to stay in the U.S. undocumented. Dreamers are, by definition, people who entered the U.S. as minor children.

    William Teach: What’s the recourse in charging Harris with multiple violations of U.S. immigration law?

    It’s not illegal to work within the system to help immigrant families.

    Speaking of criminals…

    Sedition Don, Steve Bannon, Mark Meadows…

    What’s the recourse in charging Bannon with ignoring subpoenas? There’s one set of laws for the citizens, and one for the Elites.

    • Kye says:

      Should we name just the current crop of demofascist criminals occupying the federal and stat governments? It’s staggering. BTW, exactly what crimes were Trump, Bannon and Meadows found guilty of? I mean other than the felony of not being a fascist like you and Herr biden?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You first. What crime did Vice-President Harris found guilty of?

        Bannon ignored a subpoena*, which is a crime.

        *Stormy Daniels’ nickname for Sedition Don.

  4. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Sedition Don: “Either a new Election (sic) should immediately take place or the past Election (sic) should be decertified and the Republican candidate declared the winner.”

    President Joe Biden: 81,268,924 (51.3%) votes, 306 electoral votes
    Not-president Don Trump: 74,216,154 (46.9%) votes, 232 electoral votes

    Although Sedition Don is not familiar with the US Constitution, he may actually have a good idea. Why not have presidential elections be a best 4 out of 7? If it’s good enough for the World Series it should be good enough for something as important as electing a US president. Held on 7 consecutive weeks starting in October, Week 1 on Sunday, Week 2 on Monday, Week 3 on Tuesday etc. The outcome of the previous president’s popular vote will determine the breakdown of how the outcome of this election is determined. If the Republican won the previous popular vote, 4 of the 7 new elections would be determined by the electoral college vote and 3 the popular vote. If a Dem won the previous popular vote, 4 of 7 would be determined by the popular vote.

    It’s Amendment Time!!

    Alternatively, we could amend the constitution to put Republicans in charge permanently (Sedition Don’s first choice).
