The press secretary for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announced the senator’s 2020 campaign will release an immigration plan shaped by three staffers who are illegal immigrants.
“We know that we can do better and I think that’s the greatest part of all, is that we have people who are experiencing these struggles that are taking part in that plan,” Belén Sisa boasted about the forthcoming plan in an interview with Hill TV.
Sisa would know: She has claimed her residence in the United States is protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
In short, she’s one of the so-called dreamers — undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children.
The Sanders campaign, The Hill reports, is reaching out to the Latino community for aid in crafting its immigration plan through “webinars in Spanish for people who want to get involved but can’t speak English.”
“It’s about putting people who look like them on the campaign. It’s about making them feel like they’re capable,” Sisa condescendingly added.

A campaign page for the Sanders organization indicates it would grant amnesty to dreamers — and that the campaign also seeks to expand the list of those who qualify for said amnesty. That would potentially allow millions of illegals to vote — and to vote for Democrats.
“We need to … expand DACA and DAPA, including providing immediate legal status for young people eligible for the DACA program,” the page reads.
Sanders also seeks to close down all migrant holding centers because of the “barbaric practice of family separation and detention of children in cages.”
That would be the practice that started well before Donald Trump ever ran for president.
It is an idea akin to shutting down all jails because the children of bank robbers and murderers might suffer, in our view.
“Bernie will order an immediate moratorium on private immigration detention centers and immediately begin the process of closing them,” a spokeswoman told Fox News.
Sisa, meanwhile, also takes offense at family separations at the border.
Here she is earlier this year protesting against the practice her boss claims is a product of Trump’s racism … in 2015 — when Obama was in office.

While she and the other dreamers may help craft a plan for Bernie Sanders, they won’t be able to cast a vote for the candidate for whom they work.
“Even though I can’t vote, I can get 200 people to vote, and that matters,” Sisa said during the previous presidential election. “Everything can change depending on who becomes the next president.”
Indeed. If Bernie Sanders wins, there will be open borders policies crafted by illegals.
If Trump wins, we’ll continue to see law and order enforced.
