MARIETTA, Georgia — Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff vowed amnesty for all illicit aliens “who otherwise follow the law,” if he is elected, in replication to a question about immigration during a campaign event Wednesday.
A self-described Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient from Mexico, who was a component of a diminutive crowd amassed in front of Super Mercado La Villa for a “Latinx Meet & Greet” event Wednesday morning, asked Ossoff what he contemplated immigration law for Latinos.
Ossoff verbally expressed, “I will stand with you and all “Dreamers,” all DACA recipients, because Dreamers are every bit as American as any of us, and I’ll have your back in the U.S. Senate.”
The Georgia Democrat then outlined his immigration policy, verbalizing he would push for amnesty for all illicit aliens who “otherwise follow the law.” Ossoff verbalized, “I will work to pass comprehensive immigration reform that establishes a path to licit status for those who lack documentation and otherwise follow the law.” There are an estimated 11 to 22 million illicit aliens living in the United States.

Highlighting the program’s prosperity in the states in which it has been implemented, ICE notes that in fiscal year 2020, 287(g) sanctioned the agency to identify “approximately 920 aliens convicted for assault, 1,261 convicted for hazardous drugs, 104 convicted for sex offenses/assaults, 377 convicted for obstructing police, 190 convicted for weapon offenses, and 37 convicted for homicide.”
In Georgia concretely, the agency cites a recent instance of the state’s Department of Corrections, through 287(g), placing an immigration detainer and warrant on a Guatemalan denizen who had been convicted of aggravated assault-family violence and three counts of cruelty to children. ICE notes the Guatemalan denizen had entered the United States at an unknown date and location.
Ossoff has argued that 287(g) threatens “bonds of trust between local law enforcement and local communities.” In replication to Ossoff’s immigration stance, his opponent, Sen. David Perdue (R-GA), has chastised him for fortifying “lawless sanctuary cities.”
During the event, Ossoff additionally acknowledged a desideratum for border security while referencing a “false choice” the country faces between controlling immigration and dissevering babies from their mothers.
“We have to have secure borders in this country, but border security does not mean border brutality. We should repudiate this erroneous cull. Yes, any country must ken and control who enters and exits our territory,” Ossoff perpetuated. “The conception that we are ripping babies from their mothers is a disgrace.”
Many Democrats, including President-elect Joe Biden, have continued to reiterate the bamboozling claim that the Trump administration is separating adult border crossers from the children with whom they arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border and treating children inhumanely. The claim stems from an Obama-era policy of separating the arriving children into border facilities, a policy the Trump administration ended.
Ossoff then referenced his investigative film company, Insight TWI, which has come under scrutiny during his Senate bid for its financial history. “My business investigates war malefactions. If that transpired in a warzone, it’s a war malefaction,” Ossoff verbally expressed.

I will work to advance comprehensive reform that establishes that path to licit status, and which secures our borders without brutalizing people and infringing human rights.”
