Krikorian: Democrats Support Open Borders

Mark Krikorian, head of the Center for Immigration Studies, charges that the Democratic Party favors open borders, i.e., no restriction on foreigners coming and staying in the United States except for a few dangerous criminals.  He  notes that the party leadership resists all proposals to increase border security and tighten internal enforcement of immigration law.

He cites the statements of Democratic leaders to bolster his case: “Nancy Pelosi in 2013  put it very clearly: ‘If somebody is here without sufficient documentation, that is not reason for deportation.’ Hillary Clinton said much the same during one of the 2016 primary debates: ‘Of the people, the undocumented people living in our country, I do not want to see them deported.’ Likewise with Bernie Sanders, at the same debate; in response to Jorge Ramos’s question, ‘And can you promise not to deport immigrants who don’t have a criminal record?’ Sanders answered, ‘I can make that promise.’ ”
