Liberal activist groups are mobilizing their supporters to stack Sunday night’s debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump with questions designed to be hostile to Trump.
The debate is a “town hall style” event, with questions coming from the audience. But those questions and the questioners will be pre-screened so as to not be out of left field or redundant. As part of the process for picking questions and topics, CNN and ABC News have “agreed to consider the Top 30 questions voted up” on the website “Presidential Open Questions.”
Liberals are attempting to vote up questions that they think would entrap Trump.
One of the top vote-getting questions so far include one from a 6-year-old whose parents are illegal aliens.
The question, from a user identified as Sophie Cruz from California, reads, “If you deport my parents, what happens to me? I am 6 years old and an American citizen. I have a 3 year old sister who is also an American. My heart is very sad, because I’m scared that ICE is going to deport my undocumented mommy and daddy.”
The question currently sits at No. 28, and would therefore qualify for consideration by the moderators.
“If you deport my parents, what happens to me?”

The group “Define American,” co-founded by journalist and illegal alien Jose Antonio Vargas, produced the above video for Sophie Cruz and is pushing hard to vote up the question. They are mobilizing celebrities and activists to achieve that goal.

Some of the other top vote getting questions also have a very liberal bent.
