Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced Wednesday he is for granting citizenship to at least 11 million illegal migrants, or the total number of illegal immigrants in our country.

“Now more than ever, we are short of workers, we have a population that is not producing on its own, of the same level that it used to.” Schumer announced. “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. Cause our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million, or however many undocumented [immigrants] there are here.”

Schumer has long backed measures to open up illegal immigration. He also has pushed to accommodate those who are here already. Indeed, the Democrats have been radicals on this issue for years. For instance, Schumer halted negotiations for funding of Trump’s great, big, beautiful border wall back when he was still the Senate minority leader. The basis? Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) policy, which protected illegal immigrants brought here as children.

Schumer said the following back in 2017:

Ending #DACA would crush the dreams of a generation of immigrants. We can’t sit idly by and let this happen. #DefendDACA

Of course, MAGA patriots know better. While we sympathize with the plights of illegal migrants, we also understand a nation without border protections is no nation. As such, America is built on the backs of its citizens. While Democrats like Barack Obama tell us we “didn’t build that,” the American people know better. We are a creative and productive people, and we deserve government a government that protects our interests first and foremost, especially at the Southern Border.

It is also rich that while the Radical Democrats push for abortion on demand, they are ending the lives of those workers who very well might produce “on its own.” Of course, that’s not the only or even the primary reason infants in the womb should be protected. But it is rather ironic that Democrats undercut their own talking points with their radical policy measures.

A country run by the radicals in the Democrat Party cannot stand, and that’s why MAGA patriots need to support candidates who understand the value of both our citizenry and our border.
