Feinstein, along with Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Tim Kaine (D-VA) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) have called on the GOP-controlled Senate to pass their amnesty plan which would give almost a half-million foreign nationals American citizenship and all the votes that come with it. House Democrats and seven House Republicans passed a similar measure granting amnesty to any illegal alien claiming to have arrived in the US as a child, according to Breitbart‘s John Binder.

According to Feinstein’s website

Currently, there are approximately 437,000 people with TPS in the United States from ten designated countries: El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen. Liberians, originally granted TPS in 1999, are currently the only country protected by DED – that status is set to terminate on March 31, 2019. The SECURE Act will provide stability for these individuals and their communities by giving them the ability to apply for legal permanent residency. Under the bill, all TPS and DED recipients who qualified under the most recent designation and who have been continuously present in the United States for at least three years would be eligible to apply for legal permanent residency.

In a Wednesday statement, Cardin said “The Senate must act and the president must sign into law protection for Dreamers, who mostly have known no other country but America,” adding “These individuals have lawfully lived and worked in the U.S. as our neighbors, as they sought refuge in the U.S. We have an obligation to take action and give needed predictability and safety to people who are in an uncertain status.”

In February the Trump administration extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for more than 300,000 foreign nationals while a preliminary injunction against a Trump admin immigration policy to return non-Mexican asylum seekers to Mexico “for the duration of their immigration proceedings” in the United States.

In February, Pew Research noted that nearly 2/3 of the 300,000 or so immigrants – roughly 195,000 people, are from El Salvador. 50,000 are from Haiti, and the rest are from Sudan and Nicaragua.

TPS was created under the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1990 (INA) introduced by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-MA) and signed into law by President George H.W. Bush. It has acted as a sort of quasi-amnesty used by foreign nationals who would otherwise be in the country illegally, and shields individuals from deportation back to countries which have suffered through war, famine or natural disasters.

The program, which was originally set to expire in July 1992, has been renewed by every administration since.

DHS will announce whether they will also renew the status of other foreign nationals covered under TPS set to expire in 2020, including people from Honduras, Yemen and Somalia.

Congressional Democrats, however, would rather just make them into voting citizens.

  1. We got to see good old Diane ‘s true colors during the Kavanaugh hearings… How corrupt she was/is. How she cares nothing for the rule of law or decency. She as all Dems are… care nothing for our constitution… our laws…. our country.

  2. Congress cannot even take care of the poor, the disabled, or the homeless veterans how need medical, but the democrats morons Demand Amnesty For Foreign Nationals that will cost American tax payers a high price in taxes, medical, homes, while so many Americans or on the streets.

    It just prove that the democrats in DC does not care about America they only care for the Illegals who are Terrorist and MURDERS. This is high TREASON and a SLAP in every American FACE.

  3. The dems are stacking the voting deck and will try to pass bill after bill to e pand their basen. BUT, none of these bills give or attach citizenship and if I recall my civics class, the right to vote is resevered for citizens, not individuals with permanent residency status. So, ne wary of the next “set” of bills to either allow non-cictezens with permanent residency status to vote or a bill granting citizenship to these folks. Then watch the push to voting age being dropped to 16.

    The bottom line is the dems are desperate and they will do ANYTHING to win the whitehouse.

    • Amen to that. What scares me…Communism getting too close for comfort. Too many Communists…or control freaks out there…in our government. POWER…wanting more of it…is the driving force….their way OR no way😖😡

  4. Absolutely, and they need to send these illegal aliens back to their own countries to fix their own problems and these illegal aliens get better health care than American citizens that are in this country legally ridiculous and then why should we the people have to pay higher taxes for them because of their status

    • Jonathan, All those so-called amnesty aliens want to leave their screwed up countries, come here and screw this one up to look like the one they just left. They come here some say “for the American dream”, but I don’t celebrate Christmas you must not call it that! S-O-B’s, Christmas is part of this countries “American Dream”.

  5. How about a little ‘amnesty for those of who beling here? All we hear from those Socialists posing as Democrats is, Constitution, Constitution. They’re hiding behind the document they want to destroy, and getting illegal aliens in this country and finding some way to let them vote is exactly what they’re after.

  6. There is only one answer to dealing with the liberal dem bloodsucking parasites, civil war is the only answer we have to kill all of them to save the USA

  7. Sure Mrs. Fienstien, and while all of them seeking amnesty here they can stay at your house until they’re court hearing.

  8. Another Dem Destroying the USA from within.
    For the COUNTRY’S SAKE GET INFORMED on the candidates running in 2020 ON ALL LEVELS of Government and VOTE these Anti-American People OUT OF OFFICE!
    Kiss what you have known as the USA, GOODBYE, if this corrupt segment is not removed and punished to the greatest extent of the law going back to the Obama Administration. This can NEVER be ALLOWED to happen to another President of this Country. It has been absolutely Shameful and the NEWS MEDIA were Co-Conspirators in it ALL and also need to be held accountable for their misdeeds.

  9. I am so sick of Democrats deliberately going after Trump w/ all this Immigration crap. They R NOT punishing Trump, they R punishing the American people. We R never going to get ahead if they keep hitting us up w/ Taxes to support Illegal Aliens. Its just NOT Fair to Us.
    We should NOT have to support people coming to our Country. That is their job.

    Time to Vote out Congress members in support of Illegal Aliens.

  10. Diane and the rest of the traitorous Democrats are so convinced they know what is best for America that they can’t grasp the truth is they are supposed to represent the American people. They actually believe it is far more important to regain power and crush Trump than to do their job and do what is best for AMERICA. What a bunch of ibecillic buffoons! You are THE PROBLEM!
    You need some quiet along time in prison. You are incredibly STUPID AND CORRUPT!
    What a pack of do nothing cowards. The Dem party is a skid mark in the underpants of our country.

    You should all be completely ashamed for your perfidy and traitorous behavior.
