Dreamers: the children of illegal immigrants. Their parents came to America illegally and, for some reason, Democrat candidate Kamala Harris thinks that should qualify them to work in Congress.
No, I'm not kidding.
Kamala thinks DACA illegal immigrants should become congressional staffers and help prepare laws for 330 million Americans. Kamala is putting this idea into action by drafting a putting it to a vote.
Kamala said, "The giant sign outside my office says ‘DREAMers Welcome Here’ because we know and value the contributions that these young people have made to their communities."
She continued, "But right now, those same young people are banned from giving back to their country by working for Congress. That has to change … Government works best when it reflects the people it represents. Our nation’s DREAMers are some of our best and brightest, and it’s time they had the opportunity to get a job or paid internship on Capitol Hill."
Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto said, "The American Dream Employment Act would expand Congress’ talent pool, give Dreamers a seat at the table, and strengthen policymaking for all Americans"
Illinois Democrat Sen. Dick Durbin said, "I’ve been proud to have several Dreamers work in my office as volunteer interns and have seen firsthand how the people of Illinois would benefit if Dreamers could serve as paid employees in my office."
The DACA population was created in 2012 when former President Barack Obama told his deputies to stop enforcing immigration laws against younger illegal aliens. Obama also directed them to hand out work permits to the illegal aliens despite the huge job loses caused by the 2008 crash to blue-collar Americans, and especially on Africa Americans youths.
Roughly 800,000 “DACA” illegal immigrants got the work permits — despite a law saying only Congress can provide work permits.
The resulting increase in the labor supply cut wages for blue-collar Americans and created an incentive for many additional Central Americans to migrate into blue-collar workplaces, neighborhoods, and K-12 schools around the United States. Very few DACA illegal aliens hold white-collar jobs, such as professor, lawyer, journalist, or video editor — although a growing number of white-collar jobs are being lost to Indian visa workers.
The new Harris bill, titled American Dream Employment Act, was also introduced in the House by Arizona Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, and it is backed by more than 50 Democrats.
