(Tea Party PAC) – Recently President Trump, in a show of good faith, decided to delay the deportation of a few hundred recent illegal immigrants. The idea was to encourage Democrats to work with the GOP to put together a real solution to the immigration crisis. Instead, the Dems, led by Nancy Pelosi, take it to the extreme and request the President to give nationwide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants already living here.
Give them an inch, they try to take a mile.
Pelosi took to Twitter saying, “Mr. President, delay is welcome,” adding, “Time is needed for comprehensive immigration reform.”
Mr. President, delay is welcome. Time is needed for comprehensive immigration reform. Families belong together. https://t.co/R9PDrfaKWj

Of course, by “comprehensive immigration reform” the Left is referring to legislation like the 2013 “Gang of Eight” amnesty and cheap-labor bill.
According to a Breitbart News report,
Democrat’s use of “comprehensive immigration reform” is shorthand for a political deal that would promise better border security for Americans in exchange for an immediate nationwide amnesty that would provide Democrats at least 10 million new voters in a decade.
The Left wants to play it loose with immigration as it has the potential to greatly broaden their voter base. Adding ten millions new voters to their base is extremely tempting. Can we blame them for wanting to aggressively fight for illegal immigrants over American citizens?
They’ve made it a moral issue over the last few years claiming that it’s immoral to ‘separate families’ for the sake of border security. It’s immoral to turn immigrants away who want to come here even if it means American citizens lose out economically and politically. It’s apparently immoral to ‘separate families’ for the safety of said ‘families’ until their identities can be established. It’s immoral to try to stop human trafficking and child abductions and abuse.
Look at Nancy Pelosi’s own words prior to Trump delaying the deportations, she really lays on the faux compassion thick:
Tomorrow is Sunday, and as many people of faith attend religious services, the President has ordered heartless raids. It is my hope that before Sunday, leaders of the faith-based community and other organizations that respect the dignity and worth of people will call upon the President to stop this brutal action which will tear families apart and inject terror into our communities.
Families belong together. These families are hard-working members of our communities and our country. The President’s action makes no distinction between a status violation and committing a serious crime.
While it is true that there are many families living here illegally that ‘work hard’ and are fine, upstanding illegal aliens, the truth is they are a burden on our country and only hurt working-class Americans. Not to mention they are breaking the law by being here. Democrats know they aren’t going to convince the majority of American citizens that illegal immigration is good so they have to be cunning and backhanded.
Their latest attempt to win this immigration reform battle is to use big businesses to lobby GOP politicians. Naturally businesses would stand to benefit from amnesty for all 8+ million illegals in the country. Not only would it gain them millions of new workers but it would suppress wages and housing prices causing business profits to go through the roof. Amnesty sounds like a good business move, and by all means, it is. Trouble is, once again, it hurts Americans.
For example, the 2013 “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bill would have provided voting cards to all illegals in the United States and doubled the annual inflow of legal immigrants to 2 million. That annual inflow would have import one new legal immigrant for every two Americans born each year.
That’s insane. One new legal immigrant for every two Americans born. How does that even seem like a reasonable idea? That doesn’t even include giving companies the ability to hire unlimited numbers of foreign graduates for professional jobs that over 800,000 American college graduates are vying for. This kind of immigration “reform” would only serve to drive wages down all while giving a boost to Wall Street stocks.
President Trump is aiming to actually fix the influx of illegal immigrants by tightening up border security and also plans to reduce the number of immigrants we take on. This is the only way to actually help American citizens, which SHOULD be the goal of all politicians. It is unfathomable how Dems can stump for illegal aliens when they are elected to represent the American people.
Nancy Pelosi and the Dems can’t even hide their true intentions anymore. It’s all about obtaining and maintaining power. They can’t control American citizens like they can illegal immigrants who are disillusioned into thinking the Dems genuinely care about them.
