Astrid Silva, 31, is an immigrant activist, and public face of the so-called “dreamers” movement which advocates for loose immigration laws and standards. She is herself not an American citizen, and is therefore ineligible to vote; however for Democrats, this fact has not deterred them from doing anything they can to win her favor.
Silva has met with or conferenced with such famous faces as Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Joe Biden, Cory Booker, and Pete Buttigieg.
Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had this to say about Silva’s influence: “Presidential wannabes, when they come here —I don’t know a single one that hasn’t met with her.”
It should be noted that Astrid Silva was herself an illegal immigrant at the time of her entry to the country. It seems that the Democratic candidates continue to show that they are more interested in the opinions and support of illegal immigrants than that of hard-working American citizens. It should come as no surprise at this point that every Democrat in contention for the Presidency would be following this strategy; ol’ Bernie even held a rally for immigrants earlier this year.
Despite all this apparent support that Democrats seem to be giving Silva, she herself knows better than to trust the Democrats completely saying, “Right now, they could be talking really nice, but when they have to go moderate, or when they have to go to the right, our families are first to be sacrificed,” Silva said. “We are the first to be on the cutting board because we don’t vote. We can’t vote.”
On that count we at Patriots of the LORD do agree with Silva; Democrats can be snakes in the grass.
