Yesterday Democrats voted to give full citizenship to nearly three million people. The majority of those covered by the legislation were brought to the United States illegally by their parents. Others entered the country illegally as adults.
House Democrats held a presser ahead of passing the American Dream and Promise Act, which would offer a pathway to citizenship for people within DACA, TPS, DED and similarly situated immigrants who've spent much of their lives in the U.S. pic.twitter.com/0jILlOpWNT— POLITICO (@politico) June 4, 2019
But it doesn't simply cover individuals in good standing and gives amnesty to criminals with violent records.
Democrats' new "Dream Act" is only a dream for criminals:— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) June 4, 2019
? Blocks access to state and federal gang databases
? Prevents felons and gang members from being referred to ICE for deportation
? Grants amnesty to violent criminals
? Provides $0 for border security
It's simple: Republicans want safety from crime, and Democrats want sanctuary for criminals. Democrats’ amnesty-for-all bill today is an embarrassment. It provides $0 to solve the humanitarian and security crisis at the border, yet costs $35 billion & grants amnesty to criminals. pic.twitter.com/BesmyfaG93— Steve Scalise (@SteveScalise) June 4, 2019
H.R. 6 would provide green cards to criminals, including gang members and people who committed potentially serious crimes as juveniles, with multiple DUI convictions and with misdemeanor firearms-related convictions. Dems are prioritizing mass amnesty over public safety.— House Judiciary GOP (@JudiciaryGOP) June 4, 2019
The move isn't surprising. After all, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi defended MS-13 members as haveng a "spark of divinity" within them.
Because of these loopholes for criminals, don't expect the legislation to go anywhere in the Senate. President Trump has repeatedly offered DACA coverage in exchange for border security. Democrats have turned him down.
