Bernie’s Immigration Plan: Abolish ICE, Halt Deportations, Welcome 50k ‘Climate Migrants’

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders released his immigration plan on Thursday, and it would be nothing short of catastrophic for the country if he ever becomes president.
His plan states that he would grant full welfare access to illegal immigrants, halt deportations, "break up" existing immigration enforcement agencies, and welcome a minimum of 50,000 “climate migrants” in the first year of his presidency.

“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 added.
Here's the cherry on top: Sanders admittedly worked with several illegal immigrants to help him create his immigration plan.
He allowed people who broke the law to enter the U.S. to help him craft an immigration plan for a country that those illegal immigrants illegally entered.
On day one of a Sanders presidency, he states that he would place a moratorium on deportations until there was a full audit of "current and past practices and policies."
He would also end the so-called Trump travel ban, as well as other Trump policies such as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), action against sanctuary cities and the public charge rule that restricts green cards to those immigrants deemed likely to rely on welfare.
Sanders also wants to provide a “pathway to citizenship” plan to Congress for all illegal immigrants living in America -- which he says is currently around 11 million -- and would fight to allow all of them to remain in the country.
But wait, it gets better.
Sanders is also wanting to use $14 billion in taxpayer money to create a federal grant program for legal defense for poor immigrants.
And finally, Bernie wants to welcome at least 50,000 migrants "displaced by climate change" in his first year in office.
The Republican National Committee on Thursday responded to Sanders plan and called it "dangerous."
“Bernie’s dangerous open borders agenda would incentivize illegal immigration and continue the flow of illegal drugs and criminals into our country," RNC spokesperson Michael Joyce told Fox News. "Meanwhile, President Trump’s steadfast leadership on this issue has resulted in a 63 percent decline in illegal immigrant apprehensions since May."
