Kirsten Gillibrand’s shift of positions on immigration is downright comical at this point.
Last night, she became the first Democrat Senator to take the crazy position of abolishing ICE.
The timing of her new stance is notable, as it follows the huge victory for the socialist side of the Democrat Party with Ocasio-Cortez’s win, who centered her campaign on abolishing ICE.
As a reminder, Gillibrand’s past positions on immigration include:
- Co-sponsoring the SAVE Act which aimed to crack down on illegal immigration with more border guards, accelerated deportations, and mandatory requirements for employers to verify employee immigration status.
- Opposing amnesty for illegal immigrants, calling it “fatally flawed.”
- Declaring English should be the official language of the U.S.
- Even opposing giving driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants.
Expect more Senate Democrats to trip over themselves in an effort follow Gillibrand’s swing to the radical left. (Cory Booker and Kamala Harris are probably rushing to the cameras right now)
This isn’t the first time the 2020 Democrat class has hurried to take drastically new positions to get on the side of the socialist wing of the party, and it likely won’t be the last.
