Democrats Claim American “OBLIGATION” To Protect Illegals

This is INSANE…

A group of Senate Democrats say American citizens “have an obligation” to give amnesty to potentially millions of foreign nationals living in the United States who they say have “earned the right” to be in the country.

After House Democrats and seven House Republicans passed an expansive amnesty to any illegal alien claiming to have arrived in the U.S. as a child, Senate Democrats are now demanding the Senate do the same.

Senators Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Ben Cardin (D-MD), and Tim Kaine (D-VA) are urging the GOP-controlled Senate to pass their amnesty plan, which gives nearly half a million foreign nationals living in the U.S. on Temporary Protected Status (TPS) a pathway to American citizenship.

Cardin said in a statement that Americans are obligated to give foreign nationals permanent legal residency and eventually U.S. citizenship via an amnesty. According to Cardin:

These individuals have lawfully lived and worked in the U.S. as our neighbors, as they sought refuge in the U.S. We have an obligation to take action and give needed predictability and safety to people who are in an uncertain statusWe need to stand up for the American values of compassion and diversitythat have made this country stronger. [Emphasis added]

Feinstein said the 440,000 foreign nationals who would receive the amnesty have “earned the right” to permanently stay in the U.S.

“The Senate needs to follow the House’s lead and pass these important protections for immigrant families who have been living and working in the United States for decades,” Feinstein said. “After fleeing wars and natural disasters, these families have established deep roots in our communities and earned the right to remain together here in the United States.”

TPS has become a quasi-amnesty for otherwise illegal aliens created under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1990 (INA) that prevents the deportation of foreign nationals from countries that have suffered through famine, war, or natural disasters. Since the Clinton administration, TPS has been transformed into a de facto amnesty program as the Bush, Obama, and now Trump administrations have continuously renewed the program for a variety of countries.

Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.2 million mostly low-skilled legal immigrants who compete in the labor market for jobs against poor, working, and middle-class Americans. About 70 percent of legal immigrants enter through the process known as “chain migration,” where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country with them. Chain migration, alone, has brought about 10 million foreign nationals to the U.S. since 2005.

  1. Why are the leaders of the Democratic concentrating so hard on destroying our country. They are trying to get millions of foreigners into our country and then our government so that the Americans who fought for and built this country no longer have any say anymore and ar only second class citizens

    • WHY – you ask very simply they see it as a route to further power and control and will take any and all opportunities to gain and then retain that power. They KNOW that granting such ‘amnesty’ would make all of those illegal folks even more beholden to them.

  2. We should push ALL the illegals back to Mexico. The Democraps want America run THEIR way, with PLENTY of graft for THEMSELVES, or they want to DESTROY our country and hope it will be remade into the type of country they WANT with corruption and graft first and our Constitution overthrown/destroyed.

    • We ‘could’ send them all to Mexico but in reality we should send them back to their country of origin – which last I checked they are from around 100 different countries.

  3. Time to start arresting these democrats who are out to destroy America. Their stupidity has no bounds. Demanding arrests for traitors against America.

  4. Your obligation…oh, clueless one…is to protect the citizens of the US. Now that you “feel” you have successfully “dumbed down” persons of color…it is time to move onto the whites who are Hispanic? I guess people of color aren’t as important to the Democrats as they used to be…can’t use you folks anymore…they have a much bigger pool of potential voters to “dumb down”. Democrats should all be standing before a firing squad for leaving American unprotected because THEY REFUSE TO DO THEIR JOBS…LEGISLATE!! THEY EVEN WANT A RAISE…NO RAISE YOU FOOLS, IF YOU DESERVE ANYTHING IT IS TO BE FIRED FOR DERELICTION OF YOUR SWORN DUTY TO THE CITIZENS OF THE US!!

  5. Feinstein said the 440,000 foreign nationals who would receive the amnesty have “earned the right” to permanently stay in the U.S.

    Really?! How have they Earned the Right to stay? What have they sacrificed for America? How have they Benefited US?

    They came here (even if they were children) illegally, their parents took resources from Tax paying Americans that they did not have a right to- including free education (at the expense of American students) that they did not contribute to or have a Right to take. So, just because they managed to stay for twenty years here illegally, get all sorts of freebies at America’s expense and send funds back home to S. Am. they somehow have earned the Right to stay just because their parents dragged them here?

    Let them go back to S. Am. and use the free education, knowledge, and experience they gained off the backs of the Am. Taxpayers to make their own countries – Where they have Citizenship- a better place for themselves and all of their people. We do not own the world a comfortable life. The Am. taxpayers do not have an obligation to support every poor person in the world fleeing poverty, or violence (many inner-city Americans may wonder where they can apply for amnesty in Am.) They can consider it a gift from the people of the USA to improve their failing countries.

    So Finstine and her ilk can shove their faux compassion as it does not seem to apply to the people who actually have to fund it!

    We the American Tax Payers are fed up!
