Several celebrity starlets from Sophia Bush to Cara Delevigne joined a social media-driven campaign urging President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, to push an amnesty plan in the West Wing of the White House that would allow as many as 3.3 million illegal aliens to receive a pathway to United States citizenship.
The pro-amnesty celebrities are using their fame to lobby Ivanka Trump on the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, where nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have been given work permits and protected status to remain in the U.S.
In September, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced on behalf of the Trump administration that the DACA program would be ended in March 2018, leading the open borders lobby, the political establishment and corporate interests to scramble together to craft and pass multiple amnesty bills.
Via Instagram, celebrities are now participating in a concerted campaign using Ivanka Trump, who’s previously praised an amnesty plan for DACA illegal aliens, to push the Trump administration to sign off on an end-of-the-year immigration dea
In what many suggest is defiance of President Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda, which does not include amnesty for illegal aliens, Ivanka Trump previously advocated publicly for DACA illegal aliens, calling them “innocent people” who needed to be allowed to remain in the U.S. permanently — and thus, allowed to eventually bring their extended foreign relatives to the U.S. as well.
“I am of the opinion — and the president has stated — that we have to figure out a good solution that protects these innocent people, many of whom were brought to the country as children,” Ivanka Trump said last month during a panel at the “Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit,” Breitbart News reported. “There has to be a long-term fix, it can’t be bandaged over on a presidential level by another executive order.”
Ivanka Trump’s statements were blasted by Trump’s base of supporters, including Angel Mom and co-founder of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Brandon Mendoza was murdered by an illegal alien.
“I didn’t vote for Ivanka,” Mendoza told Breitbart News Daily radio at the time. “I voted for President Trump. And I’m sure if Ivanka had been affected by illegal criminal activity in her family, I think she’d have a different stance on this. I’d love to be able to meet with her face-to-face, look her in the eye as a mother to a mother and say, ‘Which child would you choose to lose at the hands of an illegal to support your agenda?’”
As Breitbart News reported, an amnesty under the DREAM Act, would spur a potential mass migration to the U.S. of potentially between 9.9 million to 19 million extended foreign relatives of the illegal aliens who are given a pathway to U.S. citizenship. This is what’s known as “chain migration.”
Every year, more than 1.5 million illegal and legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S., with the current foreign-born population booming to an unprecedented high of roughly 44 million individuals. Mass immigration to the U.S. has been at the expense of American workers in the working and middle-class who have been forced to compete with foreign labor while their wages have remained stagnant.
Since DACA’s inception, more than 2,100 illegal aliens have had their work permits and protected status revoked for being either criminals or gang members. A former official at the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has said the fraud rateunder the DACA program is between “40 to 50 percent.”
