Newest Hiring Trend for Members of Congress: Illegal Aliens

"Liberal elected officials hired undocumented DACA immigrants to demonstrate their support for President Obama’s executive action. As reported in the Lansing State Journal, an undocumented immigrant “interned at the U.S. House of Representatives through the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute and worked for state House Representative Tom Leonard”.  That same individual worked as a liberal community organizer promoting sanctuary cities. Now that Tom Leonard is running for Attorney General, he claims to oppose President Obama’s DACA executive action. How can we trust him?" - Tonya Schuitmaker

Did I fool you? No? Good.

Say what you will about Congress, those staffer jobs are highly coveted and hard to come by. Further, I don’t think anyone needs to be reminded that the rate of Americans who are unemployed and underemployed in this country is currently above 14%. (See U6 Unemployment Rate, Dec. 2012)

Despite all this, Rep. Sinema gave away a taxpayer-funded government job with full benefits to an illegal alien. Erika Andiola, the recipient of said job, is one of the lucky 154,000+ illegal aliens so far to be granted deferred action through President Obama’s DACA program. For Andiola that deferral also meant work authorization, qualifying her for jobs like this one that other Americans actually would like to do.
