Including all of the huge lies Sen. Dick Durbin has said about the president, he also admits that his sole focus in Congress is making sure illegal aliens are given amnesty to remain permanently in the U.S., reports Breitbart News.
In talking to the press on Monday Durbin said it is the illegal immigrants, not his constituents in Illinois, that he is working “full time” for apparently.

“‘Listen, politics ain’t beanbag. When you get into tough, complicated, contentious issues, sometimes rhetoric gets very fiery. If you don’t have a tough skin, this is not a good business to get into. I know what happened. I stand behind every word that I said in terms of that meeting. I’m focused on one thing — not that meeting — but on making sure that those who are being protected by DACA and eligible for the DREAM Act have a future in America. I am focused on that full time,’ said Durbin.”
In the statement, Durbin is referencing the private meeting he and other lawmakers had with President Trump where Trump allegedly asked why the U.S. was admitting thousands of foreign nationals every year from “shithole countries,” though Trump and others at the meeting have denied the allegations.
Durbin, along with other Democrats and Republicans has been scrambling to try to negotiate a deal where potentially millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation bu the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are given amnesty.
Under Durbin’s reality, working and middle-class Americans would be put in further competition for U.S. jobs against up to 3.5 million newly legalized aliens.
A recent report found that 1 in 5 illegal aliens given amnesty under the DREAM Act would end up on food stamps and nearly 1 in 7 would end up on Medicaid, further straining the social safety net for America’s poor, reports Breitbart News.
