A House Democrat has admitted that flooding the country with illegal aliens across an open border is all part of the Democratic Party’s election strategy.
Like much of the country, New York is currently facing an illegal migrant crisis due to Democrat President Joe Biden’s border policies.
New York City is shelling out tens of billions of dollars in taxpayer money to address the problem.
The imported problem has overloaded NYC’s shelters, displaced citizen students, brought back once-eradicated diseases, and driven its Democrat mayor well past the point of desperation.
Democrat Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY), a radical leftist congresswoman running for re-election this year in New York’s 9th District, has openly admitted that the “crisis” is all part of her party’s plan.
In an undated video that went viral this week, Clarke made clear that this avoidable crisis is just an election tactic to help the Democrats.
“I’m from Brooklyn, New York,” said Clarke, who has served on the House Committee on Homeland Security.
“We have a diaspora that can absorb a significant number of these migrants.
“When I hear colleagues talk about, you know, the doors of the inn being closed — ah, no room at the inn — I’m saying I need more people in my district just for redistricting purposes.”
Democrats have been fighting for years to redraw New York’s congressional map to ensure Republicans no longer have a chance in two to six swing districts from Long Island to Syracuse.
More bodies will help in that regard, Clarke revealed.
“And those members could clearly fit here,” added Clarke, referencing illegal aliens.

Conservatives and Republicans have suggested that Clarke’s shocking admission amounts to confirmation that the border crisis is intentional.
The Democrats’ aim has, all along, been to import new voting blocs.
Vickie Paladino, a Republican New York City councilwoman whose district is directly impacted by the migrant influx celebrated by Clarke, says the open border is a Democrat “scam.”
“Here’s the big scam nobody is talking about,” wrote Paladino.
“Congressional seats are allocated by population.
“Higher population states get more congressional seats, and therefore more political power in Washington.”
“Blue states have been LOSING seats as people flee progressive policies,” continued Paladino.
“We’re set to possibly lose THREE seats by 2030 in NY.
“These allocations are determined by census-calculated raw population, including illegals. See how it works?”
The U.S. Census Bureau recently released data showing nearly 1.4 million residents fled California and New York in 2022 alone.
Paladino underscored that open borders and the ongoing invasion by foreign nationals serve to “bolster blue state power.”
“Remember, everything the left does is a power play,” added the councilwoman.
“They’ll plunge our cities and our nation into abject chaos if it means four or five more blue congressional seats.”
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott responded to the video in a post on X.
“These Democrats are looking out for themselves, not for America,” Abbott wrote.
Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) insinuated Clarke’s statement served to substantiate the “replacement theory.”
The theory holds that leftist elites seek to replace increasingly unsympathetic citizen populations with foreign nationals in hopes of cementing their hold on power, not only in political institutions but in cultural institutions as well.
Ari Fleischer, former White House press secretary under President George W. Bush, tweeted:
“We need more people to come to America illegally – so I can keep my job in Congress.
“If you want to know why Ds support illegal immigration, here’s your sorry answer.
“It’s stunning she said it.”
Various critics and pundits were similarly stunned by Clarke’s forthrightness.
Investigative journalist James O’Keefe wrote:
“This is something usually said into a hidden camera.”
Clarke led 65 of her leftist colleagues in penning a letter in June to the Biden administration to provide “immediate relief and protection” for illegal aliens, specifically black people.
“Ours is a nation of immigrants, and diversity will always be our country’s strength. Our willingness to accept newcomers into our nation is a key component of our global influence and soft power,” said the letter.
While initially, it seemed Clarke was referring to American soft power, her recent admission about the political value of illegal aliens appears to indicate she meant her own.
