It’s no secret that Democrat presidential candidates are attempting to appeal to non-citizens living in America. They’re banking on a new base of voters, who are trapped by taxpayer funded social programs Democrats have used for decades to lure minority voters to the polls. Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders wants the illegal vote so badly, that he’s willing to put his campaign at risk by placing non-Americans in prominent posititions on his campaign for President of the United States.
According to Fox News – Bernie Sanders was hit with a complaint this week, claiming his presidential campaign violated federal election laws by employing non-Americans in advisory positions.
A new complaint by the Coolidge Reagan Foundation filed with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) notes that three members of the Sanders campaign are foreign nationals, which appears to be a violation of federal election laws that prohibit foreign interference.
Maria Belén Sisa, Sanders’ deputy national press secretary who joined the campaign last month, was among the staffers named in the complaint, as first reported by the Washington Free Beacon. Sisa claims to be an illegal immigrant whose residency is protected under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program for assisting illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children.
Sisa, who has been arrested twice for protests over rights for illegal aliens, is not even allowed to vote in the 2020 elections, but the far-left Socialist Senator Sanders somehow thought it would be a great idea to have a foreigner affect the outcome of his election. Wait…does that mean it’s okay for foreigners to interfere or influence American voters in our elections as long as they’re working for Democrats?
According to the FEC rules, foreign nationals, who aren’t lawfully admitted permanent residents, cannot directly or indirectly participate in political campaigns. Such individuals are also barred from making political contributions.
The complaint also names two other foreign nationals on the Sanders’ 2016 campaign, immigration activists Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas, who worked as the campaign’s national Latino outreach strategist and press secretary for Latino outreach, respectively.
“Due to the high profile of Cesar Vargas, Erika Andiola, and Maria Belén Sisa as leading activists in the undocumented community, there is reason to believe that respondents are ‘foreign nationals’ within the meaning of 52 U.S.C. § 301219b)(2), and in violation of 11 C.F.R. § 110.20 (i) and A.O. 2004-26, directly or indirectly participated in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities of Bernie 2016,” the complaint continued.
“There is reason to believe, having previously employed Ms. Sisa, that Bernie 2020 is currently, and knowingly, permitting a ‘foreign national’ … to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to the election-related activities of Bernie 2020.”
