Democrats are losing their minds in the age of Trump.
They are going so far to the left that they could lose every bit of support they have.
And that could happen after Nancy Pelosi announced a plan to do something crazy for illegal immigrants.
Nancy Pelosi Gains A Little Bit Of Power
While hopes of a “blue wave” fell short, Democrats still had some wins on Election Day.
They won back the House, meaning that Nancy Pelosi is likely to regain her spot as Speaker.
But they also lost ground in the Senate.
So that means that while Democrats have more power, they still have little room to achieve anything.
Republicans still control the Senate and the White House.
But that doesn’t mean that they aren’t dreaming big.
And Nancy Pelosi is doing just that with her plans on illegal immigration.
Expecting to take the Speaker’s Chair, Pelosi penned an article with the Washington Post.
In it, she explains what her goals are in the next two years.
Many things you would expect are listed, including gun control, healthcare reform, and raising the minimum wage.
But on illegal immigration, she goes very far, largely due to who is in the White House.
Pelosi’s Plan On Illegal Immigration
Instead of talking about securing the border, Nancy Pelosi is more interested in passing amnesty.
In her article, she says that granting amnesty to “patriotic dreamers” is a priority.
“Dreamers” are illegal immigrants who entered the country as minors.
Instead of cracking down on illegal immigration, former President Obama enacted DACA to give them the ability to stay in the U.S.
One of Trump’s campaign promises was to do away with DACA.
And currently, it is not in effect due to its expiration.
Before its expiration, Trump offered to extend it in return for receiving funding for his wall on the border.
He saw it as a good compromise to get his main campaign promise enacted.
But Democrats weren’t willing to do that.
If Trump builds a wall, it will be a solid win for him.
So they’d rather allow DACA to expire than allow him to build the wall.
But Democrats are working to put it back into effect.
And Pelosi’s plan goes extremely far to do that.
Instead of allowing them just to stay under the DACA program, she wants to give them full citizenship.
That means they can vote, and gain access to every welfare program they didn’t already have.
Democrats Going Into 2020
In the next two years, there’s no telling what Democrats will do.
But no matter what they do, you can be sure it is a part of their strategy for 2020.
Defeating Trump is their main goal.
And everything they do in the next two years will be for that goal.
Democrats may try to fully embrace the resistance, and push further to the left.
Or they may try to moderate and pick up voters they may have lost due to their craziness.
What do you think the Democrats will do in the next two years?
