Many Democrats are throwing all rationale out the window in order pull any kind of stunt they believe will defy President Trump – be damned their constituents.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo released a statement criticizing Trump’s immigration policies when he announced the pardoning of seven illegal aliens with criminal pasts to prevent their deportation.

“While President Trump engages in policies … to advance his political agenda of hate and division, we will protect our immigrant communities,” Cuomo said, leaving out the important and crucial term “illegal.”

Cuomo went so far as to call the illegal immigrants he’s vowing to protect “New Yorkers.”

“At a time when President Trump and the federal government are waging a war on our immigrant communities, New York stands firm in our belief that our diversity is our greatest strength. While President Trump engages in politics that rip children out of the arms of their mothers and tries to ramp up the deportation of New Yorkers to advance his political agenda of hate and division, we will protect our immigrant communities,” Cuomo said, according to ABC News.

Of the five illegal aliens, four are from the Dominican Republic, one from Jamaica, one from Barbados, and one from Colombia, according to ABC News. Interestingly, none of are reportedly from the gateway country, Mexico.

All of the immigrants have allegedly led a crime-free life (aside from living in the U.S. illegally) for seven or more years – a requirement for Cuomo’s decision to pardon.

Some of their histories show past crimes from assault to petite larceny to either the possession or sale of a controlled substance, ABC reported.
