The democrats think they can stop the wall and get this passed? This amnesty bill will not happen. This is why democrats want open borders. It is all about party above country and their new voting block that will not happen

Democrats announce expanded Dream Act for illegals

House Democrats upped their ante on illegal immigration Tuesday, announcing new legislation that would not only grant legal status to potentially millions of illegal immigrant “Dreamers,” but adds hundreds of thousands of more migrants to the mix.
Dreamers would be eligible for in-state college tuition and taxpayer-backed financial aid, would get new protections against swift deportation, and would have a “direct” pathway to citizenship.
Even some already-deported illegal immigrants would be allowed to apply to return under the bill, announced by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and fellow Democrats in a rally at the Capitol.
“There should be nothing partisan or political in this legislation,” Mrs. Pelosi said.
The bill goes beyond the Dream Act, legislation that’s been kicking around for nearly two decades, which would offer a path to citizenship to as many as 2 million illegal immigrants.

The updated version would also grant a pathway to citizenship to hundreds of thousands of people here under Temporary Protected Status or Deferred Enforced Departure.

Those are both types of humanitarian protections designed to give people a temporary safe place in the U.S. — along with work permits and some other taxpayer benefits — while their home countries recover from natural disasters, instability or wars.
Yet over the decades, those protections have become semi-permanent. The average TPS holder has been in the U.S. 20 years at this point.
Democrats said they’ve put down roots, and asking them to return now is unfair.
“We are not going to let Donald Trump send them back, putting their lives in peril or tearing their families apart,” said Rep. Nydia Velazquez, a New York Democrat.
She and fellow Democrats said those to whom they’re offering citizenship rights are already American in most ways, save for their illegal entry or continued iffy legal status.

Trump offered a similar plan in exchange for wall funding. Dems refused for purely political reasons. If it wasn't obvious before, after that it became clear the democrats could care less about immigration, they simply want the brownie points this time around.

I think you meant they wanted to increase the pool of undocumented democrats.

They think these illegals will vote democrat. It is about a new voting block and nothing else. Without the wall, it will not happen. Even with the wall, they will be lucky to make this amnesty bill happen
