House Dems Push Amnesty on Twitter: America’s ‘Doors Are Open’

Illegal Immigration - Crossing The Rio Grande

As thousands of illegal immigrant children are crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, House Democrats pushed for more amnesty, guest-worker visas, $3.7 billion in funding, and more lawyers for illegal immigrant children during a Tuesday Twitter town hall on immigration.

Their message to illegal immigrants was, in the words of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA), “our doors are open.”

“We are all connected. We can’t just build a wall or a fence and say no more,” Lewis said. “This is America. Our doors are open.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has said she would rather pass amnesty legislation than become Speaker again, and Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) urged House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) to bring an amnesty bill to the floor so it can pass with support from Democrats. Boehner told Obama after House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) was ousted for his embrace of amnesty that Congress would not vote on an immigration bill this year. Boehner did suggest, though, that Congress could pass amnesty legislation next year.

  1. I think this is terrific!
    If we are letting everyone in then why do we need national security forces? You have just opened the door to every thief, terrorist, murderer, rapist, and drug dealer in the world.
    So the TSA and every other security agency is out of a job! Lay them off.
    It simply does not make economic sense to keep paying people when they are guarding the front door and everyone is coming in the back door.
