Kamala Harris hosted illegal immigrant Dreamers at the White House this week and told them that this is their home.
Many American news outlets are omitting the key phrases in this story for obviously political reasons.
This is from the Irish Times:
Vice-president Kamala Harris urged Congress to pass immigration reform, as she met with a group of “dreamers” – young immigrants who were brought to the United States as children but whose future remains uncertain.
Ms Harris hosted the group at the White House following a ruling by a federal court in Texas last week that has thrown the DACA programme – Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals – into fresh uncertainty…
Last week, a federal judge in Texas ruled that DACA is unlawful and blocked the Biden administration from approving new applications.
Ms Harris said on Thursday the Biden administration would fight the ruling, noting the department of justice would appeal the judgment and the department of homeland security was implementing new rules around the programme.
“I want to make clear to the dreamers that are here, and to those who are watching from home, this is your home, this is your home, and we see you and you are not alone,” she added.

Have you ever heard Kamala Harris say a single word about homeless veterans? People who lost their businesses in the riots?
Of course not. This is who Democrats care about. This is their base.
Dreamers serve in the military and on the frontlines, earn degrees, and lead companies. They should not live with such uncertainty. Congress must create a pathway to citizenship through reconciliation or other means. I met with Dreamers and advocates to discuss the path forward. pic.twitter.com/1uaQhrjbDN

This White House cares more about Dreamers than American citizens or legal immigrants.
