Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders’ new deputy press secretary will not even be able to vote for him in the next presidential election. Far-left activist and illegal immigrant Belen Sisa, 25, also has an arrest record. She’s a radical activist from Arizona and is proud to announce her new position with the Sanders campaign. She made the announcement in a social media post condemning the “hateful and bigoted” Trump administration.
Sisa is evidently from Argentina and came here illegally with her parents when she was six-years-old. Right now she is protected by DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). That program was put in place by Obama and the left has actually stood in the way of it being made permanent all the while blaming Trump for it.
“My life recently has taken some crazy unexpected twists and turns. From thinking I was going to be moving to San Francisco, to now moving to Washington, DC. I know many of you are wondering what exactly I’ll be doing in DC, well… I am incredibly excited and honored to announce that I will be joining the Bernie 2020 campaign as National Deputy Press Secretary! I’m ready to continue our fight, finish what we started, and take down the hateful and bigoted administration of Trump. Are you with me?!” wrote the Sisa in a social media post.
“This is really emotional for me,” she continued. “I cant help but think of 18 year old Belén, who felt hopeless and powerless to the anti immigrant attacks and policies that were holding her back from her dreams. I cant help but think of the generations of sacrifice my family has had to do for me to get here. Never in our wildest dreams did we think I’d be making moves like these.”
If you're reading this, I have been arrested in Washington, D.C. and will refuse to leave jail until @SenSchumer and @RepCurbelo publicly confirm that they have whipped the votes to block any spending bill that does not include a Clean Dream Act. #NoDreamNoDeal

In January, she appeared on CNN, where she was described as an undocumented “Dreamer” and spoke out about her immigration status being debated during the government shutdown.
“If [President Trump] truly cared about Dreamers, if he truly cared about undocumented youth, he would not be using us as bargaining chips through his tantrum of getting a wall that makes no sense,” she said.
“It’s horrible. It’s really disappointing and saddening to see that the person who is supposed to hold this country together is doing nothing but dividing the American people by holding immigrant youth hostage.”
This woman has been very active in left-wing, radical politics. She has worked for Sanders’ failed 2016 presidential run, reaching out to Latinos. She’s also worked for the Arizona delegation at the Democratic National Convention (DNC), the same year. Sisa is an aggressive protester as well and has been arrested at least twice for it.
From the Washington Examiner:
“[Sisa] has been arrested at least twice for protests throughout her activist career. As a college senior in 2017, she was jailed for her role in a sit-in outside of Sen. Chuck Schumer’s, D-N.Y., office. While in jail, Sisa told reporters that she organized a “prison strike.”
“Just weeks before that, she was arrested for a protest outside the Senate Hart Office Building. Both protests were over immigration reform and a demand that Congress pass the DREAM Act — a bill that would permanently legalize children who were brought into the country illegally — “cleanly,” without extraneous provisions.”
Sisa’s mother is proud as punch over her daughter’s ‘brave’ actions. “DACA is expiring every day. Hers is going to expire in one year and what are we going to do with all of these youth? Congress has to pass the DREAM Act,” she said.
Sisa told the Arizona Republic in 2016 that “while she initially supported Sanders’ campaign that year, she urged her family members, who have a right to vote, to back Hillary Clinton.” I guess she has reconsidered Bernie. Any socialist in an apocalypse. “Even though I can’t vote, I can get 200 people to vote, and that matters,” said the activist. “Everything can change depending on who becomes the next president. Our voice is starting to matter, and we can have an impact even though we can’t cast a ballot ourselves.”
Sanders (I-VT) has hedged his bets on illegal immigration. In 2015, Sanders took heat for dismissing the idea of totally open borders because it will “substantially lower wages in this country.” His tune has now changed evidently.
“What they are talking about is completely opening up the border,” said Sanders, according to Real Clear Politics. “That was the question. Should we have a completely open border so that anyone can come in the United States of America? If that were to happen, which I strongly disagree with, there is no question in my mind that that would substantially lower wages in this country.” But of course, he is a ‘flexible’ socialist.
This move does not surprise me in the least. It will appeal to millennials who have no idea how evil socialism truly is. But Bernie Sanders, who is a true Russian acolyte, certainly does know. He’s very good at manipulating young people and he has not given up on turning America into a socialist nightmare.
