I often discuss immigration on my daily program, ‘The Truth.” One of my viewers, a Ms. Bare from California, reached out to Senator Kamala Harris about the horrific situation in California — a state flush with illegal aliens.
The response she received is so ridiculous, I felt compelled to share with our readers.
Here is the message from Ms. Bare.

DML, Just wanted to share the response received from my senator.
Thanks for all you do DML.
Rancho Cucamonga, CA
Dear Ms. Bare,Thank you for contacting me with your views on our immigration system.
This administration has pursued immigration policies based on fear instead of facts. Under this administration, arrests of non-criminals by Immigration and Customs Enforcement have jumped by 250 percent. This has instilled a culture of fear within immigrant communities, leaving both immigrant victims and witnesses less likely to report crimes, and making it harder for local law enforcement to keep neighborhoods safe. I have personally prosecuted everything from low-level offenses to homicides. I know what a crime looks like. Despite the rhetoric coming from this administration that vilifies immigrants as criminals, I will tell you that being an immigrant is not a crime.
I believe Congress needs to pass comprehensive immigration reform that grows our economy, enhances public safety, and provides a pathway to citizenship. That is why I am a proud cosponsor of the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for young people who were brought to this country as children and collectively contribute $11 billion to California’s economy every year. It is why I am a proud cosponsor of the Agricultural Worker Program Act, which would help stabilize our nation’s agricultural workforce through a path to citizenship for agricultural workers who harvest California’s crops. And, it is why my first piece of legislation in the United States Senate was the Access to Counsel Act, which would ensure that individuals detained, whether at a border crossing or a port of entry, have access to legal counsel.
Our immigration system is broken and outdated. I will continue to push Congress to reform the system. We need immigration policies that meet the needs of our economy, families, workers and security.
Thank you again for sharing your views. If you have additional questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact my Washington, D.C. office at (202) 224-3553.
Kamala D. Harris
United States Senator
