In a press conference in Austin, Texas, yesterday, Nancy Pelosi admitted the real purpose of the Democrats’ push for open borders: more voters.
Pelosi praised all 1.5 million “newcomers” taking up residence in the United States this year, bizarrely proclaiming , “These newcomers make America more American. ”
“We want them, when they come here, to be fully part of our system. And that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America.”
Pelosi continued, emphasizing that she meant to include the mostly illegal “newcomers” sneaking across the southern border: “We, in California, see people coming from a different direction, but the same welcome. You see them coming, many from the south, southern border, but should be the same welcome.”
Packing the voter rolls with “newcomer” voters is, of course, nothing but a power play by the Democratic Party. An article by John Binder in the March 7 edition of Breitbart News reveals the numbers.
- In the 2020 election campaign, one in 10 voters will be foreign born, a situation that overwhelmingly favors Democrats.
- In the 2018 Congressional contest, nearly 90 percent of House districts with a foreign-born population above the national average were won by Democrats.
- In the 20 U.S. states with the largest share of foreign-born residents, Democrats already control 32 out of the 40 seats.
- In the 2016 Presidential race, Hillary Clinton received 64 percent of the immigrant population’s vote; Trump only 31 percent.
These statistics and many more like them show that for all the sanctimonious blather uttered by Nancy Pelosi and her kind, it all boils down to power. And the Democrats aim to get it and keep it, by any means necessary.
