She has been here illegally since the age of 4 and now she is the left’s champion illegal alien. Check out the work she used to do for Obama in 2012. This ought to shock you.
With the Democrats having put the first day of their national convention to bed, Dennis Michael Lynch notes that they’ve racked up two violations of Section 8 U.S. Code 1324.
What did they do to accomplish that? They knowingly hosted two adult illegal aliens as featured speakers at the convention.
One is a woman named Francisca (no last name given), who appeared at the speaker’s podium with her young daughter Karla. Francisca is currently ignoring a deportation order from the U.S. Government. Francisca and Karla are likely to be the pair featured in this June 2016 article in theLas Vegas Review-Journal.
The other is a young woman named Astrid Silva, who came to the U.S. illegally at the age of 4. Now in her mid-20s, Silva has been working on a bachelor’s degree at Nevada State College.
We actually know quite a bit about Silva, because she’s a DREAM activist, and the organizing director of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada (PLAN). She’s on a DACA work permit from Obama, and for good reason: she campaigned for him in 2012. (If I were a betting woman, I’d bet that Francisca’s and Karla’s entrée to the convention came through Silva.)
PLAN’s staff page describes her thus (emphasis added):
Astrid Silva is PLAN’s organizing director. She started at PLAN as a volunteer and transitioned to staff after receiving her Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) work permit. Astrid has been referred to as the “face” of immigration, and Harry Reid’s conscience when it comes to immigration reform. Her personal story was highlighted by President Barack Obama and she was chosen by the White House to introduce him at a Las Vegas. She is a leader among DREAMers in Nevada and is the co-founder of DREAM Big Vegas, a Southern Nevada organization for undocumented youth. Astrid is a graduate of Advance Technologies Academy, holds two associates degrees from the College of Southern Nevada and currently attends Nevada State College.
In November 2014, MSNBC reported on Silva’s reaction when she heard Obama recounting her story as the human-interest example in his speech announcing “immigration reform”; i.e., his plan to circumvent duly constituted federal law and cease enforcing it. Since Silva was an activist in the Soros-sponsored DREAM network as early as 2012, when she was campaigning for Obama – and since she’s “Harry Reid’s conscience” on immigration matters – we can confidently assume that Obama didn’t just happen across her story in 2014.
