Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (I) may wind up winning the Democrat nomination for president come 2020.
As of right now, though, Bernie’s campaign is facing some serious problems.
Then again, that’s what will happen when you openly employ an illegal alien.
Here’s the scoop…
From Free Beacon:
The Bernie Sanders presidential campaign is violating federal election law by employing foreign nationals in advisory campaign positions, according to a newly filed complaint to the Federal Election Commission obtained exclusively by the Free Beacon.
The complaint points to the employment of three individuals, including Maria Belén Sisa, an illegal immigrant from Argentina who is in the United States under the protections of DACA and has been named deputy national press secretary for Bernie 2020. Sisa, who collected a salary from the Bernie 2016 campaign and also made financial contributions to it, recently made headlines when she questioned whether American Jews, including her own boss Sanders, were loyal to the United States.
Both the work for the campaign and contributions are “direct and serious violations” of federal election law, the complaint argues.
Foreign nationals are prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in the decision-making process of any person with regard to election-related activities, according to the FEC. Included in this group of foreign nationals are all immigrants not lawfully admitted as permanent residents.
The complaint, filed on Thursday afternoon by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation, argues that Sisa’s current position on the campaign, due to its strategic nature, is a clear violation of this prohibition.
“Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations,” it argues.
David Sirota was recently hired to be Bernie’s speechwriter.
Sirota can’t exactly be called a proud patriot, after authoring an article for far-left website Salon, titled, “Let’s hope the Boston Marathon bomber is a white American.”
Now, why would team Bernie hire such a man?
Does it get more despicable than this?
Who roots for Americans to commit crimes just to protect people who wish to cause harm to other innocent Americans?
Sirota also wrote a piece praising Venezuela dictator Nicolas Maduro’s “economic miracle.”
No, that’s not a joke. Click the link right above to see it.
Following in the footsteps of New Zealand’s prime minister, the 2020 Democrat presidential nominee supports a sweeping ban on semi-automatic guns.
In other words, he wants to strip Americans of their Second Amendment rights.
As noted by Ryan Saavedra on Twitter:
Bernie Sanders announces he supports confiscating all semi-automatic firearms from law abiding citizens, which is what New Zealand is doing
New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern on Thursday announced the country was immediately banning “military-style semi-automatic weapons” after last week’s attack that killed 50 people at two mosques.
Ardern noted, “As I’ve said, what we’ve done here is taken out the guns out of circulation that are most critical to be addressed urgently and that’s what we’ve announced, with essentially almost immediate effect.”
Ardern added: “There is more to be done and tranche two will look at issues around licensing, issues around registration, issues around storage. There are a range of other amendments that we believe do need to be made and that will be the second tranche of reforms yet to come.“
