The Democrats are embracing one insane policy after another.
Liberals are fully advocating for policies they previously labeled right-wing scare tactics.
Now one Democrat running for president is pushing a policy that would destroy America as we know it.
Kirsten Gillibrand, the senator from New York whose long-shot presidential bid is sinking without a trace, just put forward one of the most radical proposals ever.
On the issue of immigration, Gillibrand essentially said she would open the border to all.
During an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Gillibrand said, “As president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the detention system at all.”
That means that anyone seeking asylum would immediately be released into the country until their asylum court date.
However, the overwhelming majority—north of 90%—of asylum cases are deemed to be without merit, and as a result, many illegal aliens refuse to show up for their court date.
This problem would only be exacerbated on Gillibrand’s watch.
Plus, Gillibrand and other Democrats are not in favor of enforcing deportation law.
In fact, several liberal mayors have openly flouted immigration law.
Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf tipped off illegal aliens in the city that ICE would be conducting deportation raids.
So if Democrats don’t want to detain asylum seekers and they don’t want to deport illegal aliens, that only leaves the option of open borders.
This would be disastrous for the country.
First, illegal aliens cost taxpayers far more than what they might pay into the system, and according to a 2018 report from the U.S. Sentencing Commission, 43% of federal crimes were committed by non-citizens.
That number flies in the face of the liberal mantra that illegal aliens commit less crimes than Americans.
The point is that illegal aliens shouldn’t be committing any crimes in the United States.
Illegal immigration was once a topic that elicited hawkish responses from Democrats.
Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Dianne Feinstein, and other prominent Democrats have all argued strongly against illegal immigration.
They made the case that illegal aliens put downward pressure on blue-collar jobs, drain public resources, and create a culture where people are skirting the law and living in the shadows.
The Democrats have reversed themselves on the issue because they prefer the endless influx of future Democrat voters.
If liberals get away with this scheme, they will ramp up their efforts to give illegal aliens full voting rights.
This is the left’s long-term plan.
They’ve already moved the ball in that direction by automatically registering people to vote if they get a driver’s license (illegal aliens are allowed to get a driver’s licenses in certain states) and allowing illegal aliens to vote in school-board elections.
Investigative journalist group Project Veritas even caught polling station employees electioneering and encouraging illegal aliens to vote.
Democrats like Gillibrand know their radical ideas aren’t popular with the American people, so they’re importing new voters.
Radical open border policies could accelerate a national crisis, as seen in European countries like Greece where government spending finally caught up to them.
Scarily enough, America is on the same path.
