Top Democrat Blasts Party: Why are We Supporting Criminal Illegal Aliens?
Influential New Jersey Dem George Norcross expresses concern over immigration policies
Influential New Jersey Democrat George Norcross has blasted his party's stance on the country's illegal immigration crisis, asking why his fellow Dems are supporting criminal illegal aliens.
George Norcross spoke out expressing concern over the Democratic Party’s broad support for an open border and illegal immigration.
Norcross, who is considered the state of New Jersey's leading unelected Democrat, questioned last year why Democrats are taking extreme positions in support of illegal aliens.
He said those positions include supporting those who commit crimes against Americans, and an open border.
“I have at times told people in Washington, whether it was Majority Leader Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi: ‘Why is the Democratic Party supporting criminals that are here illegally,'” Norcross said during the interview that was resurfaced recently by The Intercept.
"If you’re a criminal, you do not belong here.
"And the American public doesn’t want it.
"Why do we as a party support that?
"I don’t understand it.
"And that’s why the Democratic Party has not been attractive to certain elements of the working class of our country." [Emphasis added]
According to Breitbart, Norcross’s comments have come back to light after multiple 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidates have released platforms where they are promising to decriminalize illegal immigration to the U.S. and provide amnesty to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living across the country.
Most prominently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has endorsed decriminalizing illegal immigration and ending the detention of all border crossers.
Meanwhile, the open borders lobby has attacked former Vice President Joe Biden for not supporting decriminalizing illegal immigration.
Nearly every Democrat running for president has announced support for providing all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens with free health care that American taxpayers would be forced to pay for.
Over the course of a decade, Breitbart News analysis finds that U.S. taxpayers would be billed at least $660 billion to provide health care for illegal aliens.
