Despite poll numbers that have consistently hovered around zero-one percent, Democrat Senator Kirsten Gillibrand continues to get media face time as she works to salvage her stillborn presidential campaign.
The ambitious political harlot from New York who according to President Trump would do “anything” for campaign contributions is barely outpolling such “superstars” as John Hickenlooper, Andrew Yang, Jay Inslee, and Wayne Messam but isn’t about to give up on her dream of becoming the nation’s first female president.
Always the panderer, Gillibrand is now moving even farther to the left with a vow that if she is elected, that she would no longer enforce immigration laws, do away with the detention of the invading swarm of migrants and release illegal aliens directly into American cities.
The candidate made her controversial statement during this week’s edition of
Deface Face The Nation on CBS.

Via Politico, “Gillibrand says she would not detain immigrants”:
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a contender for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, said Sunday she would not use the detention system for immigrants to the United States if elected president.
“As president of the United States, I wouldn’t use the detention system at all,” Gillibrand told host Margaret Brennan on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”
“They don’t need to be incarcerated,” the New York Democrat said when pushed by Brennan. “If they are given a lawyer and given a process, they will follow it. They can go into the community in the way we used to handle these cases under the Department of Justice.”
Trump’s immigration policy is inhumane, ineffective and wrong,” Gillibrand said.
“What I would do is actually fund the border security measures that are anti-terrorism, anti-human trafficking, anti-drug trafficking and anti-gun trafficking,” she continued. “And I would defund these for-profit prison systems that are harming children and harming families that are seeking asylum.”
The good news?
There is no chance in hell that Gillibrand will ever be president.
The bad news?
Her ideas will quickly be picked up by other candidates who are in a contest to out crazy each other.
