House Dems Introduce Bill to Provide Taxpayer-Funded Lawyers to Illegal Immigrant Kids

Claiming that as many as half of the illegal immigrant children flooding across the border may have legitimate cases to stay in America, House Democrats introduced legislation Monday to give them taxpayer-funded lawyers to maximize their chances of not being deported.

Reps. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY), Karen Bass (D-CA), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-CA), and Judy Chu (D-CA) introduced the Vulnerable Immigrant Voice Act of 2014 (VIVA), which "would provide appointed legal counsel for unaccompanied minors and disabled individuals during immigration proceedings."

"Some of the children who have come to this country may not have a valid legal basis to remain, but some will," Jeffries said. "Yet, it is virtually impossible for a child to assert a valid claim under immigration law in the absence of legal representation... It is a fantasy to believe that unrepresented children have a fair shot in an immigration proceeding.”

This is a gross misappropriation of tax payers money. They are illegal they should have no rights. The illegals have more rights now than American citizens do. This is ridiculous but the liberals keep giving away our money to illegals every time.
