We all understand that Democrats want open borders. Some of them are still lying about it but many are finally admitting it and you can’t look at the policies they support and come to any other conclusion. If you’re a Democrat and you believe in immigration laws then you don’t belong in the Democratic Party. They’ve left you behind. Time to reassess.
It’s gotten to the point where Democrats aren’t even talking like they believe citizenship matters.
The head of the DNC just came out and basically scoffed at the idea that being born here means anything.
“[M]oving forward I think what we have to do is continue to be good listeners, continue to deliver on the promises that we made, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, fighting to make sure we protect people who have diabetes from losing their health care coverage, passing an infrastructure bill that actually puts people to work, that fixes roads and bridges, that helps us make a down payment on our commitment to combat climate change, that helps DREAMers,” Perez stated.
He continued, “In 2013 we passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill. That seems like a lifetime ago, but we’re going to keep trying, because I think our DREAMers are every bit as American as my three U.S.-born kids. I think it’s an economic imperative and a moral imperative to fight for them. So, that’s what we’re going to do, and I’m confident we can get things done under the leadership of soon to be Speaker Pelosi.”
By definition it is not correct that DREAMers are American. Maybe, Perez is just trying to pull on heart strings but what he’s saying just isn’t true. Sure, these kids grew up in America but his statement implies that their citizenship status is the same as someone born here and the law says that’s just not true.
Rhetoric like this is specifically designed to blur the lines and pretend that everyone coming here is not only the same (legally or illegally) but that everyone in the world is the same and everyone in the world has just as much of a right to live here and people born here. That’s likely not a winning message with your average American citizen and your average legal immigrant who worked hard to become a citizen.
