In her weekly address last week, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi made it very clear that she represents illegal immigrants, not the American people. In a blatant violation of her sworn duty to uphold the laws of the United States, Pelosi spent her address telling illegal immigrants how they could avoid deportation by hiding from ICE, refusing to answer the door when they come around, and taking refuge with Americans who know the “rights” of illegals.
And on Saturday, presidential contender Elizabeth Warren announced that her presidency, also, would be centered around helping illegal immigrants. At the Netroots Nation conference, Warren said that her first act as president would be to “empower a commission in the Department of Justice to investigate crimes committed by the United States against immigrants.”
“To anyone out there who’s working in this system, understand you abuse immigrants, you physically abuse immigrants, you sexually abuse immigrants, you fail to get them medical care that they need, you break the law of the United States of America and Donald Trump may be willing to look the other way, but President Elizabeth Warren will not,” she said.
Look out, we got a real tough girl on our hands.
Warren further clarified her allegiances in a Medium post, where she outlined her plan to create that commission.
“I’ll hold immigration enforcement to the same due process standards as other law enforcement agencies — no more warrantless arrests or stops deep in the interior of our country,” she wrote. “I’ll reshape CBP and ICE from top to bottom, focusing their efforts on homeland security efforts like screening cargo, identifying counterfeit goods, and preventing smuggling and trafficking. And to change the culture, I’ll insist on transparency and strengthen the authorities of independent internal watchdogs to prevent future abuses.”
Huh. So basically, immigration enforcement is off the table under a Warren presidency. She’s only concerned about counterfeit goods, not a crisis of illegal immigration destroying everything about this country. Of course she isn’t. Just listen to what she said at the conference:
“I’d like to talk about undocumented immigrants. I’d like to talk about mixed-status families. I would like to talk about an overhaul of our immigration system because that’s what we need. And it starts with the premise that immigration is good for this country. It makes us stronger. It makes our economy stronger and it ties us to families all around the world.”
There it is: Illegal immigration makes us stronger, makes our economy better, and it “ties us to families all around the world,” as if that’s some kind of benefit all unto itself.
Please don’t let this woman – or any other Democrat, for that matter – anywhere near the White House. We can’t afford it.
