Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand has “a lot of ideas,” she told a crowd in Iowa, and one of them is to expand social security to all illegal immigrants.
Gillibrand climbed atop a chair to preach to her fellow Democrats in a Davenport coffee shop Tuesday, when she unveiled her bright ideas on addressing the flood of illegal immigrants pouring across the southern border in record numbers.
Course - Gillibrand - Border - Immigrants - Country
Of course, Gillibrand didn’t focus as much on protecting the border or keeping illegal immigrants out of the country as she did turning those already here into legal voters.
“So what will I do? I have a lot of ideas,” Gillibrand told the small crowd. “First, we need comprehensive immigration reform. If you are in this country now, you must have the right to pay into social security, to pay your taxes, to pay to the local school system, and to have a pathway to citizenship.
“That must happen,” she said.
The New York senator’s call to allow immigrants in the country illegally to tap into an already strained social safety net shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Town - Hall - Monday - MSNBC - Chris
During a town hall Monday with MSNBC’s Chris Hayes, Gillibrand argued the illegal immigrants coming into the U.S. are not “a security issue” despite countless cases of illegal immigrants committing heinous crimes. Many are deported only to return to the U.S. illegally and commit more crimes.
“Immigration is not a security issue,” Gillibrand said, according to Real Clear Politics. “It is an economic and a humanitarian and a family issue. So there is no such thing as an illegal human.”
Departure - Gillibrand - Positions - Issue
It’s a drastic departure from Gillibrand’s previous positions on the issue.
