Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders announced his first executive orders as president would undo President Donald Trump’s immigration initiatives, calling them “racist” and “disgusting.”
“My first executive orders will be to reverse every single thing President Trump has done to demonize and harm immigrants, including his racist and disgusting Muslim ban,” Sanders, a leading contender for the Democratic presidential nomination, tweeted Monday, taking particular aim at the president’s travel ban on several countries.

The statement followed the Trump administration’s victory at the Supreme Court on Monday, allowing it to move forward with a rule barring green cards to immigrants who have used taxpayer-funded benefits in the past. The rule can prohibit permanent status to immigrants who have used any slate of government services in the past, such as food stamps, Section 8 housing, Medicaid or other benefits.
The statement was the latest window into how a possible Sanders administration would manage immigration policy.
During an interview with VICE earlier in January, Sanders said he was “willing to consider” the possibility of spending taxpayer dollars on tearing down sections of Trump’s southern border wall. In that same interview, he also doubled down on his vow to ban nearly all deportations, adding that he “might” make an exception for illegal aliens who are convicted of a “terrible, terrible crime.”
Sanders unveiled his comprehensive immigration platform in November 2019, staking out positions that place him on the far-left spectrum of his fellow Democratic presidential contenders. The democratic socialist lawmaker, among many things, proposed dismantling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reorganizing the Department of Homeland Security, creating a pathway to citizenship for the country’s estimated 11 million illegal aliens, and decriminalizing illegal immigration altogether.
Combining the senator’s immigration and climate agendas, Sanders also pledged to accept a minimum of 50,000 “climate migrants” in the first year of his presidency. He also expressed interest in establishing a $14 billion legal defense fund to pay for poor foreign nationals’ immigration cases.
“We must stand together with our immigrant friends and neighbors and stand up to President Trump’s xenophobic words and actions,” his proposal read.

Three house Bernie is one convention away from taking his place on the Marxist dungheap of history.
Bernie, Bernie. Same, same old. You’re a broken record.
Sanders, the Socialist “champion of the working class” has a global warming fighting plan that costs $trillions and it is going to cost the working class a lot of money?
What about airplane travel to and from lucrative political speech making?
What about airplane travel to the Soviet Union to celebrate his honeymoon?
Why does he have a $70,000 Audie and not an EV of a Prius Hybrid?
Why does he have THREE houses?
Sanders being a lying hypocrite to the nth degree.
There is no place to hide.
All is known.
Dem/Prog/Socialist climate change fighting = MORE government programs for the undeserving, tax-consuming poor.
Sanders, the SOCIALIST freeloader, wants to give freebees to his supporters, paid for by his non-supporters.
He is “on the attack” to implement:
Let all illegals in.
No questions asked.
We will sort it out at the voting booth after all are enrolled as card-carrying members of the Democrat Party
Give each such illegal all bennies, plus a green card, plus citizenship ASAP.
Free electric vehicles
Free deep energy retrofits of their housing
Free heat pumps, solar systems and batteries
Free highly insulated/highly sealed housing
Free education, including college, university
Guaranteed annual income, no work requirements.
Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist/Communist, from Brooklyn, who celebrated his honeymoon in the Soviet Union with a bunch of Russians IN HIS PAJAMAs.

Bernie is a big fraud and he is exposed in this book
My furbaby poop has more of a chance to get elected than that old Nazi fart.
The DNC doesn’t want him and, given their expressed opinion that the voters cannot be counted upon to choose the right candidate, they will torpedo his nomination again. They’ve already once demonstrated their willingness and ability to do so and I doubt the best efforts of the Republicans will be enough to save him. Too bad, Bernie. It would be too much to hope for Hillary to reenter the race – and anyway, Dizzy Lizzie said the voters don’t want a liar.
Vermont’s very own Barking Buffoon, sounding pretty sure that he’s headed to the WH,
what a joke……..
If he can get the nod from the DNC, Nope…… just wishful thinking on his part, they
are looking for a Democrat, not a Socialist or Independent or whatever title the Bern
can muster up for a Vote…………. No Shame Sanders, promises, promises, free this,
free that pure BS.
Vermont’s clown in the political circus.
Hopefully both Sanders and his cabal of campaign workers/anarchists keep talking (not that that’s ever been a problem for him). He deserves the Dem nomination, just to watch the heads explode at the DNC.
