The Democrats are really pulling all the stops at the DNC that kicked off yesterday. They weren’t messing around and laid it all out for everyone to see. One of the more gutsy moves was bringing an illegal immigrant and her daughter (who is a legal citizen and wants to grow up to be a lawyer) on-stage to preach about the injustices of America and the necessary steps that must be taken to ensure that young illegals will “not be scared”. Try to do it the right way, and we won’t have a problem.

11 year old Karla Ortiz is a child of immigrants. She says she wants to grow up to be a lawyer so that she can help families. #DemsinPhilly

Liberals all over twitter were blowing up with praises aimed at the young girl and her mother.

Striking contrast b/w RNC's "law and order," "send them home" theme & undocumented immigrants getting standing O at center stage at DNC.

If you're watching Karla Ortiz how can you support separating her from her parents? She's not a murderer. She's just an American kid.

"She wants me to have the worries of an 11-year-old, not the weight of the world on my shoulders." -Karla Ortiz.
Damn. Something in my eye.

Now keep in mind, the girl is a citizen, it’s just her mom that’s illegal. If we want to prevent the tragedy of splitting up families by enforcing laws, then enforcing laws in the first place will do it.
