Democrats Demand Taxpayer-Funded Compensation for Illegal Aliens

Suggesting that hardworking Americans should pay these lawbreakers is insulting and just plain wrong

A Democrat in this country has actually suggested taxpayers pay lawbreakers for — you guessed it — breaking our laws.

Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) believes illegal immigrants should receive financial compensation for their treatment after crossing the U.S. border — since children were separated from lawbreaking adults, as is customary in the U.S. (many families have since been reunited with each other).

“To have these children depart, separated, is one of the most reprehensible things I’ve ever witnessed in my 20 years of service here in the House of Representatives,” Crowley said on Wednesday.

“These children need to be reunited with their parents immediately,” he added.

“Once again, the administration’s actions in the first place, with the inability to restore these families, is reprehensible.”

Oh, but this gets even more unbelievable: “The damage that has been done to these children will be lifelong — to these family units will be lifelong, as well,” he continued. “In fact, I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration did to them. The first form of compensation needs to be the full reunification of these families.”

Crowley was recently defeated in a primary race ahead of his planned re-election bid by the controversial Democratic socialist and political novice Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

People have erupted on social media about Crowley’s clear “demand” for compensation to those trying to break into our country.
