Democratic Presidential Candidate and renowned socialist Senator Bernie Sanders finally released his national immigration plan, giving all the details on how he would essentially transition the U.S. to being open borders. The goal of his plan is to not just undo every bit of progress the Trump administration has made on curbing illegal immigration, but go miles further to put America last, instead of first.
Sanders’ plan details how he would abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as well as Customs and Border Protection (CBP). ICE and CBP are the two most important agencies that carry out current immigration laws to make sure American citizens are safe. ICE and CBP have both been important to making sure those who are dangerous individuals that came here illegally don’t get to stay here.
Sanders would also lift the travel ban, which bans immigration from countries where terrorist activity is common. The plan also reinstates DACA, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. DACA was a program spearheaded by President Obama intended to expand amnesty for illegal immigrants.
The plan continues to get worse as it’s unpacked. Crazy Bernie also wants to end permanent deportation, expedited removal, and mandatory detention. On day one, Sanders would halt all deportations until the best solution is found through current and past policies as to how to approach deportations.
A President Bernie Sanders would also undo all refugee caps, allowing as many as possible to flow into the country. Instead of caps, Bernie wants to set a quota of “accepting at least 50,000 climate migrants in his first year in office.” Sanders also describes in his immigration plan the “most critical issue of our time:” the weather.
The last part of the immigration plan is where he intends to make sure America is put last. He would give full welfare privileges to those here illegally, including medicare, free college, and free food at school. The plan is stamped with Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s approval.
Bernie Sanders, or any of the Democatic candidates for president, would be an absolute disaster for the country. Bernie Sanders wants to make his socialist ideas the law of the land. On top of shredding up the Constitution, Bernie then wants you to pay for his plan through heavy taxes. Stop socialism in its tracks now, donate today if you believe in, “America First,” not America Last!
