Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., on Thursday released a sweeping immigration plan that would impose a moratorium on deportations, “break up” existing immigration enforcement agencies, grant full welfare access to illegal immigrants and welcome a minimum of 50,000 “climate migrants” in the first year of a Sanders administration.

The plan effectively establishes Sanders at the far left of the immigration debate, as he aims to energize a base that helped drive his 2016 primary campaign amid competition from other liberal candidates in the field this time around.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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.”

Fox News reported that Sanders’ plan was “written in conjunction with several illegal immigrants who were shielded from deportation by former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.”

Sanders released his plan in both English AND Spanish.

“My father came to America as a refugee without a nickel in his pocket, to escape widespread anti-Semitism and find a better life. Today I released my plan to reject Trump’s hate and live up to our ideals as a nation that welcomes immigrants and refugees,” he wrote in a Twitter post.

Sanders vowed to:

✅End family separation and reunify families
✅End ICE raids
✅Put a moratorium on deportations
✅Restore and expand DACA
✅Decriminalize and demilitarize the border

“We are going to overturn President Trump’s racist and disgusting Muslim ban,” he further declared.

Sanders promised in another tweet, “On day one of our administration we will immediately reinstate and expand DACA.”

“Trump’s treatment of immigration as a criminal and national security matter is inhumane, impractical, and must end,” Sanders said. He added, “When I am president, we will treat immigration a civil matter, and fundamentally restructure the government agencies tasked with enforcing immigration law.”

“No child should have to go to school not knowing if their parents will be there when they get home. We will keep families together and end the ICE raids terrorizing immigrant communities,” Sanders wrote.
