All illegal migrants who get into the United States are “our people,” says Sen. Bernie Sanders, as he compaigns for the Democrat nomination for president  of the United States.
“What our campaign is about, and what our administration will be about, is rethinking America,” he told his supporters at a February 22 Texas rally, continuing:
Understanding that all of our people — when I say all, I also mean the undocumented in this country — that all of our people are entitled to basic human rights.

For example, Sander’s plan suggests he will offer America-funded healthcare to all migrants who make it over the border. “Healthcare is a human right, not a privilege,” he told the crowd at his Texas speech. “In America, you should not suffer financial ruin because you got sick.”
Wages will be raised for people who are now illegals:
If you work 40 hours a week in America, you should not earn starvation wages. I have talked to too many people in Texas and all over this country. Yeah, they got a job, but they got a job that is paying them a wage which is unlivable. That is why we’re gonna raise the minimum wage in this country to at least $15 an hour.

California has lots of reasons to hang onto its roughly 2.2 – 3.5 million illegal immigrants (PROBABLY CLOSER TO 15 MILLION). They provide cheap, easily-exploited labor. They swell the state’s population, which matters for electors and congresspeople, as well as the distribution of certain federal funds. As illegal immigrants are fed into the system, they provide reliable (legal or illegal) Democrat votes. And they make Californians feel virtuous even as they allow corrupt Latin American states to continue exploiting their own citizens and destroying their economies by relying on remittances from people illegally in America.

Housing aid will also be made available to current illegals:
Today, we’ve got 500,000 people sleeping out on the streets of America. Today, we have 18 million families, paying 50 percent of their limited incomes for housing.
“We’re going to end the demonization of the undocumented in this country,” he said.
Sanders has repeated these promises at many events — but has not explained how he would prevent hundreds of millions of foreigners from migrating to the United States for free healthcare, college, as well as subsidized housing and $15 wages. Nor does he explain how Americans will be able to raise their wages in a flooded labor market or buy good housing in a real estate market spike brought on by a massive population increase.
Sanders’ immigration plan is titled “A Welcoming and Safe America for All.” It says that he will:
Institute a moratorium on deportations until a thorough audit of past practices and policies is complete.
Reinstate and expand DACA and develop a humane policy for those seeking asylum.
Completely reshape and reform our immigration enforcement system, including breaking up ICE and CBP and redistributing their functions to their proper authorities.
Dismantle cruel and inhumane deportation programs and detention centers and reunite families who have been separated.
Live up to our ideals as a nation and welcome refugees and those seeking asylum, including those displaced by climate change.
Bernie believes we must stand up for our values and accept refugees, asylum-seekers, and families who come to the United States in search of the American Dream. This is how America was built and it has made our country strong.
Use executive authority to allow undocumented immigrants who have resided in the United States for five or more years to remain free from threat of deportation.
Use advance parole to reunite families that have been ripped apart by deportation policies and provide for and return unjustly deported servicemembers.

JOE BIDEN SAYS THE DEMOCRATS' PARTY BASE OF ILLEGALS IS A "GIFT" - SO WHY DOESN'T BIDEN AND HIS RICH HANDLER PAY FOR THIS "GIFT"?

Democrats Defend Drunk Drivers

DUI defender and DACA fan Joe Biden picks up a key California endorsement.
January 27, 2020 
Lloyd Billingsley

“You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed, and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.” That was former vice president Joe Biden last week, and the presidential contender announced a punishment for ICE agents who dare arrest illegals caught driving drunk.
“You change the culture by saying you are going to get fired,” Biden explained. “You are fired if, in fact, you do that.” That fell afoul of former ICE boss Tom Homan, who explained that according to current statues, any crime by an illegal is grounds for deportation. If Biden doesn’t like what ICE is doing, Homan told Fox News, “then he can change the law, but you cannot fire a law enforcement officer to enforcing the law that he took an oath to enforce, a law that was enacted by Congress.”
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Authority, “every day, almost 30 people die in drunk-driving crashes.” Those crashes claim more than 10,000 lives per year, and contribute to costs of  $44 billion in 2010 alone. Many states prosecute drunk driving as a felony, particularly in cases of injury or death. Even so, presidential contender Biden doesn’t consider drunk driving a felony, and last week announced more good news for those illegally present in the United States.
“In many cases, they’re more American than most Americans are because they have done well in school,” Biden said of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. “They believe the basic principles that we all share. I think they should be, in fact, fine to put on a path to citizenship.”
Legal immigrants and legitimate citizens might wonder what the former vice president, a lawyer, is talking about. On the other hand, Biden’s comments did not prevent a ringing endorsement from a prominent California Democrat.
“For me, vice president Biden is the best candidate,” Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg told reporters last week. “This country desperately needs both strong leadership and a voice of healing. This country is so badly divided in large part because of the current president.” As it happens, when it comes to drunk drivers Steinberg and Biden are on the same page.
In 2017, Steinberg approved $300,000 in city funding to provide legal services and other benefits for foreign nationals illegally present in the United States. Steinberg, a supporter of sanctuary laws, said his concern was people who are a threat, but illegal immigrants eligible for monetary aid include those with convictions for DUI, a felony offense if people are injured or killed.
Last year in Knight’s Landing, a small community north of Sacramento, Mexican national Ismael Huazo-Jardinez smashed his truck into a residence killing Jose Pacheco, 38, Anna Pacheco, 34,  the couple’s son Angel, 10, and injuring their 11-year-old daughter. Police charged Huazo-Jardinez, previously deported in 2011, with felony DUI and three counts of vehicular manslaughter.
Huazo Jardinez attempted to flee the scene but Sutter County judge David Ashby, a 2016 appointee of Gov. Jerry Brown, allowed the Mexican to post bail. The suspect then fled but was quickly apprehended by ICE agents and also charged with ‘two counts of possessing a firearm while being an alien unlawfully in the United States.” Despite the two fatalities in the felony DUI, the case drew no public comment from mayor Steinberg, Governor Gavin Newsom or attorney general Xavier Becerra, once on Hillary Clinton’s short list as a running mate.
On December 16, 2018, Newman, California, police officer Ronil “Ron” Singh, a legal immigrant from Fiji, pulled over a drunk driver who gunned down the officer. Police arrested a Mexican national calling himself Gustavo Perez Arriaga and Paulo Virgen Mendoza.
The Mexican national, illegally present in the United States, had been arrested for felony DUI, in 2011, in a case that caused injury, and arrested on another DUI in 2014. That year the Mexican was sentenced to five days in jail but failed to show. Under California sanctuary policy, he was never handed over to ICE for deportation.
After the murder of officer Singh, several other illegals helped the suspect flee. One of them, Eriz Quiroz, has already been sentenced to prison after prosecution by U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott. The suspect, now calling himself Paulo Virgen Mendoza, is being prosecuted by state judge Ricardo C√≥rdova, a 2003 appointee of Democrat Gov. Gray Davis, and the murder case has been postponed until March 10, 2020.
Attorney general Xavier Becerra and Gov. Gavin Newsom, both supporters of California’s sanctuary law, did not attend the funeral of police officer Ron Singh. Neither Democrat has publicly decried the officer’s murder as an example of “gun violence.”
Meanwhile, Sacramento mayor Darrell Steinberg, a former state Senate boss, spends taxpayer dollars on the legal fees of illegals, believes drunk driving does not constitute a threat, and believes Joe Biden is the “best candidate” for president. The former vice president believes drunk driving is not a felony, that ICE agents who arrest drunken illegals should be fired, and that foreign nationals are more American than Americans because they “have done well in school.”
The election takes place on November 3. As President Trump says, we’ll see what happens.

 

 

CYMI: Biden Says He'd Fire ICE Agents for Arresting Drunk Driving Illegal Aliens

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden plans on changing the culture over at U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) by firing ICE agents who arrest illegal aliens for anything other than a felony, adding, "and I don’t consider drunk driving as a felony." Biden made the controversial remarks during a 2020 Vice News Election Forum on Monday. 
A moderator asked the Democratic candidate how he would change the "culture" over at ICE.
"You change the culture by saying, 'You’re gonna get fired,'" a finger-pointing Biden responded. "'You’re fired.' If in fact, you do that. You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed, and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony."
So Joe Biden is threatening to fire ICE agents for doing their jobs just like Biden fired that Ukrainian prosecutor for doing his. 
Even the moderators appeared to be taken aback by the candidate's defense of drunk driving. 
You would think Biden would have more sympathy for families who lost loved ones due to drunk driving. For years, Biden lied about his first wife and 13-month-old-daughter being killed by a man, who Biden has falsely accused of having "drank his lunch." Despite Biden's claims, a police determination found that Biden's wife had driven into the path of a tractor-trailer, possibly because her head had been turned and she didn't see the oncoming vehicle. A tragic and sad story nonetheless, but why support a policy that would similarly victimize other families?
Countless Americans lose their lives every year when they are hit by illegal alien drunk drivers, and many of the illegal aliens are repeat offenders. It's amazing the Democratic frontrunner would guarantee that many more Americans would die from drunk driving illegal aliens by threatening to fire ICE agents who deport such dangerous individuals. 
A lot of the Angel Moms also lost their children to illegal alien drunk drivers. The Angel Moms weren't voting for Joe Biden anyway, but Biden's policy would create many more of these mothers.
Biden's comments show how far-left the Democratic Party has become and how far Joe Biden is willing to go to become the Democrat's nominee.

Joe Biden Helped Launch Business for Son-in-Law from the Oval Office, Repeatedly Briefed Investors Privately

Former Vice President Joe Biden went to great lengths to boost his son-in-law’s health care company while in the White House, briefing investors on the firm’s merits and even arranging access to the Oval Office. The bombshell revelations are detailed in Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite — a new book by Peter Schweizer, a senior contributor at Breitbart News and the president of the Government Accountability Institute.
In June 2011, Biden arranged a private meeting for two StartUp Health executives with then-President Barack Obama in the Oval Office. At the time of the meeting, the company had been around for only a few weeks. It had yet to finalize its business plan, let alone develop a website.
The meeting was all the more surprising since StartUp Health was not proposing any new or radical ideas for health care, at least not to the degree of warranting a meeting with the nation’s commander-in-chief.
“Their status as a health care incubator was hardly unique,” Schweizer writes in Profiles in Corruption. “In fact, there were thirty-one similar companies operating in the state of California alone, and another eleven in the state of New York.”
As Schweizer outlines, the only significant factor that set StartUp Health apart from others in its field was that its chief medical officer, Howard Krein, was engaged to Biden’s daughter, Ashley. Krein, a head and neck doctor by training, seemed to have become an integral part of Biden’s inner-circle even before he officially wed into the family in June 2012.
One day after StartUp Health’s executives met with Obama in the Oval Office, the company got a bigger boost from the administration when it was featured at a health care tech conference put on by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). How the company managed to score HHS attention, while still in the stages of infancy, remains unclear, but it is likely Biden played a role.
Regardless, the back-to-back events gave StartUp Health a launch trajectory unavailable to other companies in the health care field, let alone other industries. Biden’s influence ensured that StartUp Health set out with “the winds to our backs,” as one of the company’s co-founders succinctly put it.
The former vice president’s efforts on his son-in-law’s behalf were not just confined to the company’s launch. As Profiles in Corruption details, Biden went out of his way to ensure StartUp Health executives were given unparalleled access to the White House during the Obama presidency. The company’s leadership, which mostly consisted of Krein’s family and friends, frequently met with administration officials not only in private but also in public.
“According to 2011 White House visitors’ logs, Howard Krein attended the China State Dinner, a White House Staff barbecue, and President Obama’s Motown event,” Schweizer writes. “His brother, Steven, had half a dozen other meetings with White House officials.”
Biden’s efforts on behalf of the company expansively increased during his final year in office, both internationally and at home.
First, the vice president took Krein with him on Air Force Two to a conference on regenerative health hosted by Pope Francis at the Vatican in April 2016.
“Conference attendees included a who’s who of scientific researchers in medicine from around the world,” Schweizer notes.
Then in May, Krein was tasked with introducing his father-in-law at a major health industry data conference hosted by the Obama administration. The opportunity provided free publicity to the company as it planned to expand its portfolio.
In October 2016, Biden appeared alongside StartUp Health’s CEO at the Cleveland Clinic’s Medical Innovation Summit. During his remarks, Biden praised StartUp Health as an innovator in the health care market and claimed companies like it would be essential to winning the battle against cancer.
Apart from arranging access and touting the company in public, Biden also took steps in the waning days of the Obama administration to boost investment in StartUp Health. In January 2017, Biden made one of his final appearances as vice president at a festival hosted by the company in San Francisco, California. At the event, Biden lauded StartUp Health’s success to 250 attendees, including members and prospective donors.
Ironically, at the same time he was working to promote his son-in-law’s business, Biden was also claiming his children had chosen careers unlikely to make them rich.
“I wish my kids would become wealthy,” Biden told the International Association of Fire Fighters in July 2012 while lambasting the economic policies of then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney.
Profile in Corruption outlines how Biden’s children and other members of his family did just that while he was in political office.



Biden was enriching more family members than just Hunter

 

On January 21, Peter Schweizer’s newest book, Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite, will be released. It should sell well given that pre-sales have already put it at #14 on the Amazon charts. As a preview of coming attractions, the New York Post published an extract from the book detailing “How five members of Joe Biden’s family got rich through his connections.”
According to Schwiezer, Biden was fibbing when he announced last year, “I never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else — even distant family — about their business interests. Period.” The truth is that Biden’s business conversations not only benefited Hunter, they also benefitted Biden’s son-in-law Howard, his brothers James and Frank, and his sister Valerie. Loose lips enrich sibs.
James Biden was a welcome friend in the Obama White House. “Sometimes, James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president.” For example, just three weeks after Biden’s longtime friend Kevin Justice, president of HillStone International, a subsidiary of a huge construction management firm, visited the White House, HillStone announced that James Biden was its new Executive Vice President.
No one cared that Biden had no experience in construction management. What might have mattered was that, six months later, the firm got a contract to build 100,000 homes in Iraq, plus a $22 million U.S. federal government contract to manage a State Department project. An executive in the parent company later told investors it helped to have the vice president’s brother as a partner. 
The book excerpt also tells how Hunter -- a man known for drugs, alcohol, taking up with his brother’s widow, fathering a child on a stripper, dumping the stripper and his child, and marrying another woman –made bank in Ukraine thanks to  his father’s connections. It’s a complicated, unsavory story, but the bottom line is the same as for James: Hunter got an immensely profitable job for which he was completely unqualified because Biden allowed Hunter to piggyback off of Biden’s connections.
When it came to his kids, Biden didn’t stop with Hunter. His daughter, Ashley, married a doctor, Howard Krein. Howard and his siblings open StartUp Health, an investment consultancy firm. In 2011, when the firm had just opened, two of the firm’s executives were invited to meet with Obama and Biden. The next day, this barely hatched entity hit the big time:
The following day the new company would be featured at a large health care tech conference being run by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and StartUp Health executives became regular visitors to the White House, attending events in 2011, 2014 and 2015.
How did StartUp Health gain access to the highest levels of power in Washington? There was nothing particularly unique about the company, but for this:
The chief medical officer of StartUp Health, Howard Krein, is married to Joe Biden’s youngest daughter, Ashley.
For years after, including his years in the White House, Biden made a point of promoting the company.
James also wasn’t the only one of his siblings Biden helped. In March 2009, Biden went to Costa Rica. The last time a high-ranking American official went to Costa Rica was in 1997 when Bill Clinton traveled there. Biden’s trip may not have been a coincidence:
Joe Biden’s trip to Costa Rica came at a fortuitous time for his brother Frank, who was busy working deals in the country. Just months after Vice President Biden’s visit, in August, Costa Rica News announced a new multilateral partnership “to reform Real Estate in Latin America” between Frank Biden, a developer named Craig Williamson, and the Guanacaste Country Club, a newly planned resort. 
[snip]
As it happened, Joe Biden had been asked by President Obama to act as the Administration’s point man in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Frank’s vision for a country club in Costa Rica received support from the highest levels of the Costa Rican government— despite his lack of experience in building such developments. He met with the Costa Rican ministers of education and energy and environment, as well as the president of the country.
The same amazing coincidences played out with Biden’s sister Valerie, to whom his campaigns ended up paying $2.5 million in consulting fees in 2008 alone.
Considering that the New York Post article is merely a short excerpt from Peter Schweizer’s Profiles in Corruption, readers can expect to be exposed to a massive, but readable data dump, explaining how taxpayer funds and political connections have been funding the lifestyles of the rich and progressive.


NY Post: ‘Profiles in Corruption’ Reveals How the ‘Biden Five’ Made Millions Off Joe Biden Connections

Spencer Platt/Getty, HarperCollins

Five family members of former Vice President Joe Biden have scored “sweetheart deals” and “favorable access” thanks to their connection to the 2020 Democrat White House candidate, reveals the forthcoming investigative book Profiles in Corruption: Abuse of Power by America’s Progressive Elite by five-time New York Times bestselling author and Breitbart News senior contributor Peter Schweizer.

The New York Post reports:

The Biden family’s apparent self-enrichment involves no less than five family members: Joe’s son Hunter, son-in-law Howard, brothers James and Frank, and sister Valerie.
When this subject came up in 2019, Biden declared, “I never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else — even distant family — about their business interests. Period.”
As we will see, this is far from the case…
Joe Biden’s younger brother, James, has been an integral part of the family political machine from the earliest days when he served as finance chair of Joe’s 1972 Senate campaign, and the two have remained quite close. After Joe joined the U.S. Senate, he would bring his brother James along on congressional delegation trips to places like Ireland, Rome and Africa.
When Joe became vice president, James was a welcomed guest at the White House, securing invitations to such important functions as a state dinner in 2011 and the visit of Pope Francis in 2015. Sometimes, James’ White House visits dovetailed with his overseas business dealings, and his commercial opportunities flourished during his brother’s tenure as vice president.
