Senator Kirsten Gillibrand may be an idiot, but at least she’s honest about it. Rather than retreating behind double talk and lies, Gillibrand flat out said that she would release asylum seekers into the U.S. without detainment.
The 2020 hopeful made the open borders revelation on CBS’s “Face the Nation” on Sunday.
“As president of the United States, I would not fund any for-profit prisons, I would not lock up these families, I would have a humane immigration policy where people … would have lawyers and have a proper asylum process,” Gillibrand said.
“I wouldn’t keep them in detention at all,” Gillibrand continued. “I wouldn’t … as president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the detention system at all … if someone is seeking asylum, I would assign them a lawyer.”
When Gillibrand was pressed as to how she would handle the inflow of hundreds of thousands of border apprehensions and crossings set to occur this year, she said no border crossers and illegal aliens claiming asylum would be incarcerated under her watch.
“They don’t need to be incarcerated,” Gillibrand said. “If they’re given a lawyer and given a process, they will follow it. They can go into the community…”
At current rates, experts project there to be 863,000 border apprehensions this fiscal year, though this only counts illegal aliens who are caught at the border and does not include those who successfully cross.
Experts predict that potentially half a million illegal aliens will successfully cross the southern border this year, undetected by Border Patrol.
Under Gillibrand’s open border plan, all border crossers and illegal aliens claiming asylum would be allowed to enter the country, freely, with the hope that they arrive in court for their hearing.
But, since the evidence shows that these invaders rarely appear before the court… until of course, they are arrested on some other crime… that’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard all day.
