Democrats seem to never cease in their efforts to pander to “marginalized” groups OR to ensure an open border, both issues being critical to their long-term goal to “fundamentally transform” America by moving on from the U.S. Constitution.
On that note, the party got a two-fer when “dozens of Democrats in the House and Senate introduced legislation this week that would make it harder to hold illegal aliens in custody if they qualify as a ‘vulnerable person,’ such as those who are gay, lesbian or transgender, who don’t speak English, or who meet other definitions of the term under the bill,” Fox News reported.
In effect, Democrats want to grant special privileges for illegal immigrants who are gay, as well as for those who don’t speak English. As ridiculous as that may sound, it comes the same week a Democratic lawmaker advocated for “critical funding that would accelerate the development… of the use of female dummies in crash testing.”
U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., and Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., are behind the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which seeks to set “minimum standards for detention facilities where thousands of illegal aliens are kept as they await processing,” Fox News further reported, adding the bill “would bar the use of private detention facilities and make sure government-run facilities meet minimum standards.”
“Our immigration system has allowed for the unjust treatment of immigrants and stripped them of their humanity and due process,” Booker said in a statement. “We must respect and protect the basic rights of immigrants detained in the United States.”
But don’t look to Democrats to push legislation seeking to protect the “dignity” of tax-paying U.S. citizens and their “basic right” to a sovereign nation that puts their interests before foreign nationals who show no regard for our immigration laws.
The bill sets forth that Homeland Security can arrest illegal immigrants, but requires the agency to decide within 48 hours whether to detain them or release them on bond. The language all but ensures that many of those detained are released in the U.S., and included a “special rule for vulnerable persons and primary caregivers,” according to Fox News. The bill says these aliens “may not be detained” unless DHS can demonstrate that it is “unreasonable or not practicable to place the alien in a community-based supervision program.”
More from Fox News:
Under the bill, “vulnerable person” is defined as anyone who is under 21 or older than 60, pregnant, or who “identifies as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex.” Other vulnerable aliens are those who are a victim of or witness to a crime, anyone who has filed a nonfrivolous civil rights claim in court, anyone with a workplace claim, and those with a “serious mental or physical illness or disability.”
Aliens with a credible fear of persecution, “limited English language proficiency,” those experiencing “severe trauma,” and survivors of “torture or gender-based violence” also meet the definition of a “vulnerable person” for which DHS must take extra steps before detaining.
