An open-borders, pro-illegal-alien group funded by liberal, globalist billionaire George Soros has condemned the deal Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi made with President Trump because it doesn’t provide immediate amnesty to the estimated 800,000 illegal alien “dreamers” in the United States.
The “United We Dream” organization published a news release Thursday, saying, “We are tired of waiting. That’s why we’re calling on Democrats to attach the Dream Act – without dangerous enforcement add-ons – to every single must-pass bill, without delay.”
The news release, signed by Advocacy Director Greisa Martinez, Kamal Essaheb of the National Immigration Law Center, and Angel Padilla with the Indivisible Project, stated, “Time and time again, Democratic leaders tell immigrants that relief from deportation would come someday down the road — and that someday never comes.”
Breitbart noted that “United We Dream is funded by a slew of social justice and open-borders organizations, including Soros’s Open Society Foundation, which grants money to a number of pro-migration groups, like the Center for Popular Democracy.”
“In July, the Soros-funded organization began lobbying members of the Republican establishment to put forward legislation that would grant amnesty and potentially a pathway to citizenship for the 800,000 illegal aliens currently protected by DACA,” Breitbart reported.
Washington, DC — Today, Kamal Essaheb of the National Immigration Law Center, Greisa Martinez of United We Dream, and Angel Padilla of the Indivisible Project issued the following statement on congressional Democrats’ legislative response to Trump’s announcement that he would be ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) after six months unless Congress acts.
“Today, Democratic congressional leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi celebrated a political win: they got Trump to side with them instead of Republicans on must-pass September bills. Their deal with Trump just one day after he killed the DACA program is not consistent with the commitment they made to immigrant youth to do everything they could to protect them. When the lives of 800,000 immigrant youth are on the line, it is no time for political games.
“Following Trump’s decision to eliminate the DACA program, Democrats had a rare opportunity to force congressional action on the Dream Act to protect immigrant youth. They had the leverage of a packed September agenda, full of must-pass bills and momentum of an activated grassroots base that is doing their part to fight for immigrants targeted by Trump. The world’s attention is focused on DACA and public sympathy for the many young immigrants whose worst fears had been realized is at an all time high. And yet Democratic leaders Schumer and Pelosi instead chose to make a deal with Trump, with a vague promise of action on the Dream Act down the road.
“At a time of great urgency, the message Schumer and Pelosi sent to immigrant youth was, ‘wait.’ Yet every day that teenagers are not able to apply for DACA is a day that they fall into a deadly gap where they live at risk of deportation.
“Time and time again, Democratic leaders tell immigrants that relief from deportation would come someday down the road — and that someday never comes. We are tired of waiting. That’s why we’re calling on Democrats to attach the Dream Act – without dangerous enforcement add-ons – to every single must-pass bill, without delay. Immigrants and progressive activists are doing our part to protect immigrant young people – it is time that you do yours.”
