Just in time for the border surge, Democrats hand out amnesty to 2 million DREAMers

To the shouts of “Si, se puede!” House Democrats voted Tuesday to hand out an unconditional amnesty to more than 2 million illegal immigrants brought here as old as age 15 as well as two other migrant categories, sending a message abroad that the border’s open and path to the citizenship comes free. That’s some message to send during an ongoing border surge.

According to The Hill:

The Democratic-led chamber passed the Dream and Promise Act in a largely party line 237-187 vote, with seven Republicans joining all Democrats in voting for the bill.

Supporters in the gallery broke out into cheers of “Sí se puede!” when the tally reached the necessary simple majority of 218 in favor.

“That was good,” said Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D-Ariz.), walking off the House floor.

The bill would grant permanent residency with a path to citizenship to more than 2 million immigrants across three categories: It would permanently protect from deportation Dreamers – immigrants who came to the country illegally as children – as well as certain recipients of the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) programs.

The illegal immigrants who ballot-harvested California’s congressional delegation into the House must be ‘si se puede-ing’ themselves something fierce. Mission accomplished.

And as for Democrats, well, their game is just politics. They know the measure isn’t going to pass in the Senate, and certainly won’t get signed in the White House. But for them, that’s not a problem, because it’s less about providing relief to DREAMers than it is about incentiving more illegal immigration as a means to gaining more political power. Democrats, remember, kind of like having a lot of people here illegally who can’t quite vote and who are always dependent on them. They lead the pack in “dead districts” in places with something like 9% voter turnout in California, and they benefit from new congressional seats created from those same districts padded with illegals, as well as the additional electoral college votes they provide. No wonder they want more of them.

Their standalone measure does nothing to couple the incentivization with more immigration enforcement, yet won’t help DREAMers so much as it will be employed as a pressure tactic, (with Democrats’ media handmaidens putting out more individual sob stories to influence public opinion) for the 2020 election, and maybe as a means of getting their end of any comprehensive bargain with the GOP through as a unit.
