Forty-four House Democrats have pledged their support for the New Way Forward Act, legislation that calls for the decriminalization of illegal immigration, make it harder to deport convicted criminals and allow criminal illegal aliens to reenter the U.S.
Democratic Illinois Rep. Jesús García, and several other progressive members of the House, introduced the New Way Forward Act this past December but up till now, it has gone largely unnoticed. However, with 43 co-sponsors the legislation has caught the attention of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who says the 4,400-word bill may be as ‘impactful to the country as the U.S. Constitution.’
Matthew Tragesser, spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) warns, “The New Way Forward Act is arguably the most radical piece of immigration legislation in American history. The act shields criminal illegal aliens from deportation, decriminalizes illegal entry, and creates a pathway for deported illegal aliens to return back to the U.S.”
Alluding to the act, Wyoming Republican and leader of the House Republican caucus Rep. Liz Cheney said that we should “Make no mistake: House Democrats have embraced open borders policies.”
Marguerite Telford, a spokeswoman for the Center for Immigration Studies adds: “Democrats in the House have prioritized open borders over the safety of citizens …”
