Julian Castro’s Disastrous Immigration Plan Will Hand The Country Over To Illegals

Democrat 2020 hopeful Julian Castro revealed his sweeping immigration plan on Tuesday that would essentially hand the country over to illegal aliens who want to enter the country illegally and stay here.  I bet he gets every illegal alien vote in the primaries.  Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton revealed that over 900,000 illegal aliens voted in the midterms.

Castro served as Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in the Obama administration and is the first 2020 Democrat to offer up a detailed (pro-illegal) immigration plan.  His plan may seem like a progressive gimmick to get some traction in the crowded clown car race for the Democrat nomination, but he’s serious about undermining the values of citizenship in the United States.

With a slogan of “Putting People First,”  Castro inevitably means immigrants, with a particular emphasis on illegals, as his program will extend legal rights, including citizenship, to everyone living illegally inside the United States.  This program, of course, will increase the number of people south of our border to run like hell for Texas.  We are currently experiencing a crisis at the southern border where border patrol is saying they expect 100,000 apprehensions in April alone.  And if they catch one our of every three illegal border crossers that’s almost a quarter of a million illegal foreigners coming into our country this month.   And the Democrat Party is 100 percent for it, because they believe it benefits them politically.  Screw the country, they want power.

Even Obama’s immigration chief says there is a serious problem at the border right now:

“By anyone’s definition, by any measure, right now we have a crisis at our southern border,” former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on “Cavuto LIVE” on Saturday, naming recent stats that “there were 4,000 apprehensions in one day alone this past week, and we’re on pace for 100,000 apprehensions on our southern border this month.”

Castro’s plan is as unamerican as it gets.  Since most, if not all, of the 2020 candidates on the Left have some plan that benefits illegal aliens at the expense of citizens, they must be asked serious questions about their loyalties and responsibilities to American citizens over foreign lawbreakers.  No one in the establishment media asks them anything remotely about their plans to degrade the value of citizenship just for votes and power.

From The Washington Free Beacon:

Surprisingly, the most mundane aspect of the Castro plan is his sweeping legalization proposal. He promises a “pathway to full and equal citizenship” for all 11 million people currently illegal in the United States. This explicitly includes childhood arrivals (DACA recipients) and the parents of children born in the United States (DAPA recipients), as well as beneficiaries of Temporary Protected Status. He would also seek to end the bars that prohibit the previously illegal resident spouses of U.S. citizens from acquiring a green card without a waiting period of up to 10 years.

This last change would be part of a substantial expansion of legal family immigration under the Reuniting Families Act, which allocates thousands of unused visas for family immigration, and does away with caps on immigration by type of relative and country of origin. The concrete consequence of this would be a substantial increase in the already high levels of family immigration—the average immigrant is already responsible for an additional three to four family members’ arrival.

On top of these changes to family migration, the Castro plan would reverse cuts to the U.S. refugee program made under Trump. It would also undo guidance issued under Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which curtailed abuse of the asylum system through an overbroad definition of qualification for asylum previously imposed by an Obama-era immigration court. The plan would also create substantive deportation protection for temporary farm workers under the Agricultural Worker Program Act.

Castro would not just make legal immigration easier—he would also make illegal immigration much easier. The primary method would be to repeal the federal statute, 8 U.S.C. § 1325, which makes illegal entry a federal crime with possible jail time. Prosecution under 1325 was not widespread prior to the start of the 21st century but has been a key component of the Trump administration’s immigration enforcement program.

If you care about the future of the country you have to ask yourself why would you vote for politicians who put more emphasis on fighting to give foreigners and illegal aliens the right to come and stay here over the rights of American citizens.   The American citizens are being forced to pay for the illegals, most of which cannot afford to take care of themselves.  Who do these Democrats think they are that they can force this on a sovereign nation?

Donald Trump’s policy slogan “America First” is what every politician running for office should believe.  America First doesn’t mean America only.  It simply means that government policy should always be geared to the betterment of America and its citizens.  After that, we can begin to worry about foreign countries and their people.

The Democrat Party today has removed any semblance of urgency to government for the betterment of America and its citizens.  The difference between Trump’s model and that of those who want to destroy the country couldn’t be wider.  It’s why Trump will win 2020 easily.
