House Democrats vote to let some illegal immigrants work as congressional staffers
Fox News ^ | 7/29/2021 | Andrew Mark Miller

House Democrats passed a massive legislative budget this week that allows for members of Congress to hire illegal immigrants to work for them on Capitol Hill.

The legislative funding bill "includes language to permit DACA recipients, Dreamers, to be able to work for Congress and other legislative branch agencies," Democratic Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan noted on the House floor Wednesday.

In the U.S., there are an estimated 800,000 "Dreamers" – children brought to the U.S. illegally who were protected from deportation under an Obama-era program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

A federal judge earlier this month ruled that DACA was illegal and ordered the Biden administration to cease accepting applications for the program.

Ryan heralded the bill's passage and the move to allow DACA recipients to work for Congress.

"I am proud that this legislation includes a $134 million increase for Members to hire and retain the staff needed to serve our constituents," Ryan said in a statement. "I am also pleased that we are helping ensure our workforce reflects the diversity of our nation, including by increasing funding for paid internships and allowing DACA recipients to work in the halls of Congress."

The madness continues to find new heights.

Can't imagine this would be a winning issue for Ryan in the Ohio Senate race.

I guess the corruption with the Awan brothers wasn’t enough for them.

Let’s see if they are vaccinated/negative and if not, are they the spreaders/reason for masks?

and what about their background investigations. I would think being an illegal alien is a disqualifying factor.

If the Senate doesn’t object to this being non-budgetary, the open borders crowd will argue that Congress enacted the whole DACA program.

8 U.S. Code § 1324a - Unlawful employment of aliens

If we had a justice system this section of US Code would be enforced.

I can only imagine the wonderful pipeline of SPIES for their home country this asinine measure will create. Just when you finish choking/laughing/crying over the latest outrageous and crazy Dimmocommie measure, they outdo themselves the very next day with something worse. Why would you want foreign nationals having access to sensitive documents and information? You know what? I wouldn’t be surprised if this was actually illegal, a form of treason. The Dimmocommies cannot destroy this country fast enough. And then where will they go? Having outed themselves as untrustworthy traitors and weasels, do you think China or anyone else will have a moment’s use for them? Only here could they hold any power.
