Incoming Illinois Democratic congresswoman Delia Ramirez will do well in D.C., if her willingness to use her husband and the power of the press to score political points is any indication of her future in the Swamp.
Ramirez, 39, married Boris Hernandez, a Guatemalan immigrant, in October 2020, during the pandemic.
I met the love of my life, my soulmate and life partner.

Hernandez arrived in the States when he was 14 under then-President Obama’s controversial DACA program, short for “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals,” which gave to certain illegal migrants who were brought to the U.S. as minors protection from deportation and work permits, CNN reports.
As such, the union between the two is considered a “mixed-status family,” and Ramirez, an immigration advocate, is now claiming that her husband could be deported if Congress doesn’t act to pass DREAM Act legislation in its next session.
It’s a passionate plea from a lawmaker who is being less than honest about her plight.
While it is true that “10% of people deported from the U.S. every year are lawful permanent residents,” according to Stilt, Hernandez, as Ramirez’s husband, has a very clear pathway to citizenship.
Though he did initially enter the States illegally, he is a DACA recipient.
After three years of marital bliss, assuming he hasn’t committed any deportable offenses and their marriage isn’t a sham, he can file to become a naturalized citizen, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.
As the first Latina Congresswoman from the Midwest, it is unlikely Hernadez’s status would ever be challenged.
But that isn’t stopping Ramirez from virtue signaling to a compliant press.
“I’m going to be fighting to keep my husband here,” she said, “and I’m a member of Congress. …. What happens to the other 2 million (undocumented immigrants that the DREAM Act would protect)? What happens to his brother? What happens to my best friend from high school? What happens to all of them who have no pathway, who don’t have a citizen husband or wife or partner?”
She’s been playing the Hubby Card for a while now.
In early December, Ramirez held a press conference, in which she stated how “personal” the issue of immigration is for her.
“This is very personal for me. It is time – it is past time that we deliver on the promise that we have made to our Dreamers,” she said.
“I am the wife of a DACA recipient. I am the daughter of Guatemalan working immigrants. I know firsthand the challenges and constant fear our families live every single day,” she continued. “We have to end this.”
“It is time to deliver for our Dreamers,” Ramirez insisted. “It is time for Boris Hernandez to finally have a pathway to citizenship.”
Online, many are seeing through the “feels” and are calling Ramirez out.
“This is a stunt, by marrying an American citizen he’s a citizen,” wrote one user on Twitter.
“If they are married, he should get to apply for citizenship that way,” stated another. “No need for DACA.”
And a third offered this simple piece of advice: “You’re required to follow the law congresswoman.”
