This is no exaggeration. Introduced by Democratic Representatives Jesús “Chuy” Garcia (Ill.), Pramila Jayapal (Wa.), Karen Bass (Calif.), and Ayanna Pressley (Mass.) in December 2019, the New Way Forward Act (NWFA), shockingly, is supported by almost one-fifth of House Democrats, including Representatives Ilhan Omar (Minn.) and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.).
Just as shockingly, this nation-rending bill has received virtually no media attention, tragic as it “would entirely remake our immigration system, with the explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move here, and settle here permanently, with impunity,” Carlson also relates.
The commentator calls the NWFA “the most radical single piece of legislation we’ve [ever] seen,” making the Green New Deal, and proposals to end fracking via executive order and nationalize healthcare seem sane by comparison. The bill’s promotional materials actually state, “Convictions … should not lead to deportation” Carlson reports.
