Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY) just admitted that the Democrats’ “ultimate goal” is to grant citizenship to those illegal immigrants currently residing in the country.
According to Fox News, Schumer made the admission on Wednesday, while holding a press conference on the grounds of the U.S. Capitol.
“Our ultimate goal”
Schumer’s admission came as he was speaking about America’s declining birth rate.
“Now more than ever, we’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to,” the Senate majority leader said.
Schumer then continued by suggesting that granting citizenship to the illegal immigrants currently residing in America could be the solution to this problem.
“The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers and – all of them,” Schumer said.
Then, Schumer made the admission, saying, “our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million, or however many undocumented immigrants.”
Banks calls for GOP opposition
Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), during an appearance on the Fox News Channel, urged his fellow congressional Republicans to “do everything” they can to stop Schumer and his fellow Democrats here.
“Republicans need to keep our promises and do everything we can to block amnesty,” he said.
Banks also highlighted the fact that Schumer waited until after the midterm elections to renew this push for amnesty, saying:
Democrats were afraid to push amnesty ahead of the midterms because it’s wildly unpopular. But they calculated that amnesty will be old news by 2024, and they’re counting on the millions of new voters to return their favor.
Schumer’s whole idea of granting citizenship to those illegal aliens residing in the U.S. as a solution to America’s declining birth rate problem drew a large social media response. Many pointed out the irony of such an idea coming from Schumer considering some of the other policies that he supports, such as legalizing abortion.
Conservative political strategist Greg Price, perhaps, summed the situation up best, writing:
They [the Democrats] say that it’s empowering to stay single forever and never start a family, claim having kids destroys the environment, promote abortion as a moral good, and their solution when they realize people aren’t having enough kids is to import the third world to replace them.
