Democratic candidate for president Hillary Clinton is actively recruiting illegal immigrants to volunteer for her campaign for president.
Specifically, the campaign is looking for so-called “DREAMers,” individuals who were brought into the country illegally as children and are not allowed to vote.
Recall that the DREAM Act was a bill designed to grant these individuals amnesty. It was rejected by the Senate in 2009. In 2012, President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an unconstitutional executive order that granted de-facto amnesty to illegal immigrants who fit the criteria of the DREAM Act. Obama succeeded in granting over 600,000 illegal immigrants two-year work permits and exemptions from deportation.
Now Hillary Clinton’s campaign is using these “DREAMers” to get her elected president, the Christian Science Monitor reports.
The program is called “Mi Sueño, Tu Voto” (“My Dream, Your Vote”). The aim is to get DREAMers to encourage others to register to vote for Hillary Clinton on the basis of her immigration policy. The program launch coincides with the four-year anniversary of the implementation of DACA, which Clinton says she will extend in addition to expanding the rights of undocumented immigrants, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
“DREAMers have played a pivotal role in our campaign, advocating for families who constantly live in fear of deportation – so we’ve created a program that aims to turn these stories into action. We founded this program on the premise that, one by one – through friends, families, co-workers or classmates – DREAMers’ futures would be considered on Election day,” Lorella Praeli, Clinton’s national director of the Latino Vote, said in a statement to The Hill.
Clinton is looking to capitalize her opponent Donald Trump’s unpopularity with Latino voters. A record 27.3 million Latino voters will be eligible to vote in 2016.
Among Clinton’s proposals on immigration is a promise to fast-track comprehensive immigration reform with amnesty and a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens within the first 100 days of her presidency. She has pledged to uphold Obama’s illegal DACA and DAPA executive actions and to expand Obamacare to include tax-payer subsidized health-insurance for illegal aliens.
In contrast, her Republican opponent Donald Trump has proposed cracking down on illegal immigration by tripling the number of ICE officers, imposing a nationwide e-verify program to ensure employers cannot hire illegal immigrants, deporting criminal aliens, defunding sanctuary cities, enhancing penalties to individuals who overstay their visas, and ending birthright citizenship.
In the past, Trump voiced his opposition to amnesty for the estimated 11 million illegal aliens in the United States, explaining in 2013 that “every one of those 11 million people will be voting Democratic.”
It seems Hillary Clinton isn’t waiting for them to vote. (For more from the author of “‘Crooked Hillary’ Is Using Illegal Aliens to Help Her Win the Presidency” please click HERE)
