Former DNC communications director and CNN contributor Maria Cardona claimed Thursday that reducing legal immigration would “fundamentally change the meaning of America.”


On “Erin Burnett OutFront,” Cardona said, “I say this ‘compromise’ is a farce. Erin, the fact that they shared this proposal with the media before they even went to any legislators on the Hill who are the ones who are going to have to write the legislation and negotiate between Democrats and Republicans, to me indicates that they did not do this in good faith–that they did this to tease Dreamers, to tease activists with the pathway to citizenship by masking their anti-immigrant radical nativist immigration policies that they want to implement right behind that.” (RELATED: CNN’s Symone Sanders: White People Aren’t Allowed To Criticize NFL Kneeling [VIDEO])

She continued, “If we do this, this would slash legal immigration by 50 percent, which is the biggest change in immigration policy in over 100 years. And it would fundamentally change the face of America and would fundamentally change the meaning of America, which is this great country that my parents brought me to when I was two and that so many immigrants have come here to change their lives to make better lives for themselves and children. It’s a shame.” (RELATED: CNN Parts Ways With Another Pro-Trump Contributor)
