Recently, it was revealed that one of Bernie Sanders’ top staffers in his campaign is technically an illegal immigrant. In fact, the woman has boasted about it on numerous occasions. As shocking as that may be, it turns out it might give Sanders a hard time. I guess he didn’t bother to consult federal election laws when he hired her.
Nobody was surprised when Bernie Sanders announced he was running for president again. The aging senator only has a few more years to try for the White House, after all. And, while it would have been smarter for him to run after Trump leaves office, he decided to go after the big man in 2020.
What did surprise more than a few Americans was the news that Sanders’ deputy press secretary, Maria Belén Sisa, is in fact an illegal alien. Those aren’t my words, they are the words of the woman herself.
Sisa claims her parents brought her into the U.S. illegally from Argentina when she was six years old. She now claims the status as a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient. Her legal protection from deportation will expire next year. [Source: Breitbart]
You don’t have to think too hard to realize why Sanders hired her—instead of one of thousands of eligible Americans—to work on his campaign. As a “Democratic Socialist,” Bernie is strongly opposed to immigration enforcement. Like the rest of the left, he wants open borders and no protection for American citizens.
Hiring Sisa—an outspoken illegal immigrant—is a way for him to virtue signal to the country. Yes, he supports “undocumented” immigrants. So much so, that he’d hire one of them to help him win the White House. When he could have hired a real American for that job.
It’s not a stretch to say that many Americans were outraged by this news. At a time when the president is putting Americans first by enforcing our immigration laws and securing our border, Bernie Sanders (who wants to be president) is giving jobs to known illegals, and insulting every last American.
But the insult is more than just a stab at our values and way of life. Turns out, Sanders might be breaking serious federal election laws by hiring an outsider to work on his campaign.
A complaint filed against Bernie Sanders’ 2020 campaign for president maintains that Sanders broke federal election laws by hiring illegal aliens for his campaign staff…
The complaint claims this is a violation of laws that mean to prevent foreign influence in our elections, Fox News reported…
The FEC complaint says that the Sanders campaign’s hiring of illegals is a “direct and serious violation” of federal election laws.
“Senator Sanders and Bernie 2020 is permitting a foreign national, Ms. Sisa, to serve in an advisory position which allows her to directly or indirectly participate in the decision-making process of persons with regard to election-related activities in violation of FEC regulations,” the filing says.

Sisa admits she is not an American citizen. That makes her the citizen of another country, in this case Argentina. As such, she is a foreign entity influencing a U.S. election.
Hey, isn’t that was Democrats have been accusing Trump’s campaign of doing, when they claimed he was helped by Russia in 2016?
So, it is a crime of treason if Trump is doing it (even though he didn’t), but it’s okay when Bernie openly announces his staffer isn’t a citizen?
This is pretty typical among Democrats. They always operate under a double standard. They hold others by one set of rules, but have a much different set of rules for themselves.
Sanders doesn’t mind have outsiders influence his campaign for president, because it benefits him. But if a Republican were to do the same thing, I guarantee every last news outlet would be screaming “Treason!” right now.
Hillary Clinton accused Trump of treason when she said he worked with Russia during the election. Yet Clinton herself worked with Russian agents to create a fake dossier to slander Trump so he wouldn’t win.
Shouldn’t that be considered treason too?
Democrats will always do this. They will always try to cheat the system. Seems like they don’t believe in the very laws they claim to uphold.
Bernie Sanders has a lot to answer for, if you ask me.
