On Thursday, Vice President Kamala Harris met with several illegal aliens at the White House, promising them that the Biden Administration would fight against a judge’s ruling that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program was unconstitutional, as reported by Breitbart.
The illegals, referred to as “Dreamers” because they would have qualified for amnesty under Barack Obama’s failed Dream Act amnesty plan, met with the vice president both in-person and virtually over Zoom. Addressing the recent ruling that struck a major blow to DACA, an executive order signed by Obama as the successor to the Dream Act after the latter failed to pass through Congress, Harris told the illegals that “this is your home, this is your home, and we see you, and you are not alone.”
Harris went on to claim, with no evidence, that some illegals have gone on to work for Fortune 500 companies, have worked in health care, or have served in the military. “Many have been living recently, these years, a life of uncertainty,” she said, “even though this is the only country they have ever known. They deserve a pathway to citizenship.”
Last week, Judge Andrew Hanen of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas ruled that DACA had been “created in violation of the law” and was “illegally implemented” by Obama. His ruling ultimately barred any future potential illegals from applying for amnesty via the program, although it did not impact current or past applicants.
Harris vowed to have the Biden Department of Justice fight back against Judge Hanen’s ruling, declaring that his decision and other legal challenges to DACA were “just simply wrong,” and that “this is about saying that we want to ensure that all people have the ability to determine their own future.”
