An incoming Democrat congresswoman is married to a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient who could face deportation if the DREAM Act doesn’t pass through Congress next term.
The newly elected politician, Delia Ramirez, 39, is a US citizen — but her new husband, Boris Hernandez, came to the country illegally when he was 14-years-old.
Ramirez, of course, appears to support extreme open borders policies.
DACA is an unconstitutional Obama-era policy that he enacted in 2012, which allows people who came to the US illegally as minors to obtain work permits and be shielded from deportation.
Now, once she is in Congress, Ramirez plans to use her position to fight to keep her husband in the country.
“I’m going to be fighting to keep my husband here and I’m a member of Congress. …. What happens to the other 2 million undocumented immigrants that the DREAM Act would protect? What happens to his brother? What happens to my best friend from high school? What happens to all of them who have no pathway, who don’t have a citizen husband or wife or partner?” Ramirez asked during a press conference at the US Capitol in December, according to a report from the Daily Mail.
“This is very personal for me. It is time – it is past time that we deliver on the promise that we have made to our Dreamers,” she continued. “I am the wife of a DACA recipient. I am the daughter of Guatemalan working immigrants. I know firsthand the challenges and constant fear our families live every single day. We have to end this.”
Ramirez continued, “It is time to deliver for our Dreamers. It is time for Boris Hernandez to finally have a pathway to citizenship.”
Since DACA was enacted unconstitutionally, open-borders liberals are pushing for congress to pass the DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) act, which would create a path for citizenship for those currently protected by the program.
The couple met in 2020 and were married during the pandemic. They have no children together.
