The following article, Kamala Harris Puts Americans SECOND, Pushes Bill to Let DREAMers Work In Congress, was first published on Flag And Cross.
California Senator Kamala Harris has about as good a chance to win the Democrat nomination for president as Alec Baldwin.
It’s not happening.
Because everyone and their mother (and probably even Kamala’s mother) knows this to be true, Harris is doing everything she can to stay relevant.
She is now working to help DREAMers, the illegal alien children of illegal alien adults given asylum in America during the Obama years.
You know, because why help American citizens, right?
That doesn’t look as good to Dems.
On Wednesday, the 2020 contender will introduce legislation with Sens. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Catherine Cortez-Masto (D-Nev.) that would make Dreamers eligible to work as staffers or interns in Congress. It’s the latest move by the California Democrat to seize on an issue that her rival Beto O’Rourke has made his calling card — and to advocate for a Democratic constituency that’s often reduced to a congressional bargaining chip.
Harris’ proposal, which would lift what immigrant-rights supporters consider to be a mean-spirited ban on Dreamers working in Congress, comes after Harris traveled to Latino-heavy Nevada this week for her second visit there as a presidential candidate. She also went to Texas recently, in part to build support among Latino voters.
In addition to Wednesday’s bill, Harris has introduced legislation that would expand oversight of Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention centers.
The Senator appeared on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night ABC program to make a big announcement.
If she wins in 2020, which seems pretty far-fetched considering Bernie Sanders or Joe Biden will most likely be handed the Democrat nomination, she’ll prosecute President Trump.
Based on what?
That’s not the point, though. The point is that Kamala knows how to get a liberal crowd to cheer in her favor.
The senator’s past work as a prosecutor has made her a target for some progressives, but she made the case to Kimmel that it could be an asset when it comes to taking on Trump.
Harris: “I also believe that what voters are going to want is they are going to want that there is someone who has the proven ability to prosecute the case against this administration and this president. And that is going to be about having an ability and a proven ability to be able to articulate the evidence that makes the case for why we need new leadership in this country.”
Harris was recently busted for a blatant falsehood. She said she didn’t do something that she actually did do.
That’s not so far-fetched, though, is it?
What’s weird is that CNN called her out.
