Democrats ARE for open borders

Democrats ARE for open borders

Despite their protestations to the contrary, the Democratic Party is aggressively pursuing an open borders policy.  They are pushing back against every effort by the Trump administration and our border security forces to regain control of our border and return to a legal process of vetting immigrants and asylum seekers.  They are not only refusing to prevent illegal entry, but they are also actively aiding and abetting those crossing the border illegally and seeking asylum under false pretenses.

The latest example involves Texas Congresswoman Veronica Escobar.  She has been sending members of her congressional staff to Mexico to coach migrants on what to say and claim to be allowed to remain in the United States as asylum seekers.  They are actually recruiting folks who have been turned away at the border for lack of legitimate eligibility.  Those individuals are being reprogrammed and returned to the border to make more acceptable – although fraudulent – claims.

Ponder this for a moment.  A member of Congress who has sworn an oath to obey and defend the Constitution and the laws that flow from it is overtly engaging in criminal activity to enable foreigners to gain illegal access to America.

Escobar’s interests are the same as other members of Congress who are the leading edge of the open borders caucus – the most outspoken of which includes such radical Congresspersons as Norma Torres, Ayanna Pressley, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib. Except for Torres, these are the four Democrats who even Speaker Nancy Pelosi singled out for criticism.

Their motive is obvious.  It is to flood America with millions of individuals to whom they hope to give amnesty and citizenship – and the right to vote.  It is their assumption – with some legitimacy – that the vast majority of these “new citizens” will vote for Democrats – especially the most radical of the bunch.

While the five mentioned above are getting a lot of favorable exposure from the left-wing media, they are not necessarily outliers, as Pelosi maintains.  The center of gravity within the Democratic Party has shifted to not only an open borders policy but a general resistance to the rule-of-law when it comes to immigration.

In the spirit that actions speak louder than words. a summary of Democrat actions and policies make the case for their belief in open borders. To wit:

  1. You may recall that Minnesota Democrat Attorney General – who previously held the congressional seat now occupied by Omar – wears a t-shirt professing his belief in open borders.
  2. Sanctuary cities, counties and even states is a highly partisan issue – with Democrats essentially protecting the presence of all illegal immigrants regardless of their criminality.
  3. Democrats push policies to restrain the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency by legislative limiting its scope and denying critical funding.
  4. Many Democrats call for the complete elimination of ICE – effectively putting the agency most responsible for tracking down vicious criminal elements within the illegal alien communities out of business entirely.
  5. Democrats applaud mayors such as Oakland California Mayor Libby Schaaf — and other elected officials – who actively assist illegal aliens to escape ICE raids or arrests.
  6. Democrat law enforcement officials – including police departments – refuse to cooperate with ICE by handing over criminal illegal aliens in their custody to ICE.
  7. Democrats even oppose the arrest and deportation by ICE of foreigners who have exhausted their legal rights and have been ORDERED TO BE DEPORTED BY THE COURTS.
  8. Democrats fight for more and more benefits and rights for illegal aliens as enticementS to come to America illegally. This includes issuing driver licenses that are a standard identification for voting.
  9. Democrats favor proposals allowing non-citizens – including illegal aliens — the right to vote in local elections.
  10. Democrats are setting up informal consulting services to help illegal aliens circumvent America’s immigration laws.
  11. Democrats refuse to provide funding for barriers and more border guards to prevent border crossings.
  12. Democrats refuse to support funding for larger facilities and better staffing at detention centers, but rather allow the humanitarian crisis to worsen for political advantage.
  13. Democrats refuse funding for more immigration judges to reduce the six-year backload of pending cases.
  14. Democrats support the “catch and release” program that enables all border crossers to remain in the united states for years before they can be vetted – and in the end, will not be vetted at all.
  15. Democrats advance the false narrative that those crossing the border are legitimate asylum seekers when in fact 80 percent of those vetted are ineligible.
  16. Democrats refuse to acknowledge that among the million or more people crossing our border illegally there are criminals, drug carteillians, gangbangers and folks with communicable diseases who need to be vetted at the time they cross.
  17. Democrats oppose asking about citizenship on the decennial census in order to shield those who are in America Illegally.
  18. Presidential candidate Julian Castro wants to decriminalize crossing the border illegally – and he is not alone in that proposal.

Democrats say they are not for open borders.  So, let us now look at the list of things Democrats are doing to provide border security and proper vetting – and to stem the tide of illegal border crossings.

    Your distortion of the truth and outright lies and fabrications only highlight this administrations propaganda with the intent to deceive the people. The unanswered question is where has all the money allocated for border security been spent. Attempting to convince the public that the cost of maintaining immigrants is in excess of 700 dollars a day. And by the way, your policy has benefited a number of trump donors in the billions.

      You didn’t really make any counter argument at all. What are your references or sources?
      100,000 illegal aliens per month can use up a LOT of money just to apprehend them and transport them anywhere, let alone to a housing facility that is already over-run and under-funded because AOC and others won’t vote for money to fund them adequately.
      You are just repeating talking point from the talking heads. He didn’t say anything about 700 dollars. Only you did.

        The amount that private contractors are getting is $715 a day. Seems a little high doesn’t it? I think someone’s buddies (Republican or Democrat it doesn’t matter) are getting paid off.

      Any money for border security and this goes back to Bill Clinton suddenly is cut off by the Democrats, Same thing with the Bush both of their administrations. Also note The bums, democrats found out they can’t stop the privately funded “We Build the Wall” because it is not government funded. Now come again on what has been happening to that money?

    The author is trying to stir up the issue by calling anyone who enters the US, illegal. In actuality the legal process requires them to present them self in person to apply for asylum. Whether they cross at a port of entry or cross through the desert. This is what the Texas congresswoman is helping people with. The true illegal alien is the one who comes into the US and does not present themselves and apply for asylum.

    I am a liberal and registered Democrat. I DO NOT support “open borders”. Furthermore, I don’t personally know a single liberal who does. Several Dems voted against the last ‘border security’ funding bill because it contained no guarantee that ANY of the money would be spent on improving conditions at the detention centers. This whole story is just more right wing BS. Why not just save your readers the trouble and include a link to a fact checking site in your made up stories?

      That’s interesting.

      Since Democrats control the House, and that’s where spending bills originate, why haven’t the majority members started a bill that DOES guarantee that money will be spent improving conditions AS WELL AS repairing and adding to the wall.

      After all, Dems DO control the House.

    If Ms, Escobar is doing as claimed, why is she not arrested for treason?

    Let us not forget that those who perpetrated the infamous 9/11 attacks were in this country illegally.

    You’re a breath of fresh air. Please assure me that all is not lost and the liberal agenda will spark a backlash amongst the voters at the polls.
