Senator Bernie Sanders unveiled his latest immigration proposal Thursday; calling for the elimination of ICE, a stop in federal deportations, the admission of 50,000 ‘Climate Migrants’ and free healthcare for all.
“My father came to America as a refugee without a nickel in his pocket, to escape widespread anti-Semitism and find a better life,” Sanders said in a press release. “As the proud son of an immigrant, I know that my father’s story is the story of so many Americans today.”
“When I am in the White House we will stop the hatred towards our immigrant brothers and sisters, end family separation, and locking children up in cages. We will end the ICE raids that are terrorizing our communities, and on my first day as president, I will use my executive power to protect our immigrant communities and reverse every single horrific action implemented by Trump,” he said.
“Immigration is not a threat to national security,” his plan says. “It is long past time we break up the Department of Homeland Security and refocus its mission on keeping our country safe and responding effectively to emergencies.”

Progressive and moderate Democrats squared-off Tuesday night on the first round of CNN’s presidential debates; with centrist lawmakers calling far-left policies “fairytale economics.”
“The ideological divide between Democratic presidential hopefuls came into focus Tuesday as leading progressive candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren defended their liberal policies on healthcare and immigration against surprisingly energetic attacks from moderate rivals,” reports Yahoo News.
“The fault lines emerged immediately in the second debate of the 2020 Democratic primary race, with lesser-known candidates taking sharp digs and warning that forcing radical change could ensure President Donald Trump’s re-election,” adds the website.
Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders repeatedly called for massive, “structural” change to the US economy and political system on issues including Wall Street, healthcare, taxation, immigration, and more.
Democratic frontrunner Joe Biden will share the stage Thursday with Senator Kamala Harris; clearing the path for a potential rematch from weeks ago.
ADD IT TO THE LIST: Fading Bernie Unveils His $2.5 TRILLION ‘Housing for All’ Plan, Calls for Tax Hikes
Fading Presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders unveiled his “Housing for All” plan Wednesday; calling for $2.5 trillion in new spending to expand government programs for low-income Americans.
“In the richest country in the history of the world, every American must have a safe, decent, accessible, and affordable home as a fundamental right,” writes Sanders. “For more than 40 years, we have had an affordable housing crisis in America that has only gotten worse. In America today, over 18 million families are paying more than 50 percent of their income on housing, while last year alone the five largest banks on Wall Street made a record-breaking $111 billion in profits.”
“If we are serious about addressing the affordable housing crisis, we need to build millions of apartments and homes throughout the country that will remain affordable in perpetuity to prevent displacement and serve future generations. And when we do that, we will create millions of good-paying jobs in the process,” adds Bernie.
The new proposal calls for $1.48 trillion to “build, rehabilitate, and preserve” affordable housing across the United States.
It calls for an additional $400 billion to construct 2 million new “units” and $500 million for “development in rural areas.”
