Government Watchdog, the Judicial Watch, has filed a complaint with the FEC against the Democratic National Committee because the DNC chose to “knowingly” hire an illegal immigrant to help them craft their campaign message.
Way back in June the Washington Post reported that the DNC knowingly hired Cindy Nava, an illegal alien, to help organize the party in the run up to the 2016 elections. As much as Democrats like to pretend that ILLEGAL immigration is not a crime… it is still illegal, and it is also ILLEGAL to knowingly hire an “undocumented” worker. Not only is Ms. Nava breaking the law but now the DNC has joined her in her lawlessness.
Despite not yet attaining legal status, Nava is working for the Democratic National Committee as one of a crop of fellows from around the country helping the party organize ahead of a presidential election that President Obama predicted would feature immigration as a major issue.
“We are extremely proud to have Cindy on our team at the DNC. Her story is an inspiration for all of us about what immigrant youth can achieve despite their undocumented status,” said DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.).
- The Democratic National Committee knowingly hired a Foreign National to assist, directly or indirectly, in setting the Committee’s Public Policy Agenda for its Candidates, the National Committee, and its Associated Organizations.
The United States has prohibited non-citizen participation in election related activities for over fifty years. The United States Supreme Court has held that such prohibitions are legally permissible under the U.S. Constitution… In 2002, Congress expanded the prohibitions on foreign nationals… to include “anything of value” that “directly or indirectly” contributes to a political campaign… The Commission has stated “foreign nationals [cannot] direct, control, or otherwise participate directly or indirectly in the decision-making process of [a] PAC.
On its face, the DNC’s decision to hire Ms. Nava is in direct violation of this provision. The FEC should investigate this matter further to determine the full extent of Ms. Nava’s responsibilities, her relationship to the policy making team, and her effect on the 2016 DNC election strategy.
- The Democratic National Committee is Willfully and Knowingly violating Federal Law and Contradicting Federal Policy by Permitting a Foreign National to Contribute to the Conventions Campaigns, Election Strategy, and Fundraising Efforts
The United States Congress created a federal offense to knowingly hire an illegal alien. It is against Federal law “to hire, or to recruit…, for employment in the United States an alien knowing the alien is an unauthorized alien… There are two elements to this crime: (1) knowledge of the alien’s status, and (2) an employment offer…
Thus, the DNC is violating federal law by hiring Cindy Nava. Her fellowship constitutes expenditures under the FEC regulation, and therefore these illegal expenditures are within the scope of FEC regulations… They have actively employed Ms. Nava knowing that she lacked proper authorization to work in the United States.
Remember, these are the same people who have been climbing all over themselves to attack Kim Davis for refusing to hand out marriage licenses to gay couples because she’s “breaking the law.”
Weird how they stop caring about following the law when it’s a law they don’t like.
