Bernie Sanders Slapped With Hefty Fine

Sen. Bernie Sanders’ 2016 and 2020 presidential campaigns are being fined for thousands of dollars after unlawfully hiring illegal aliens for top staffer roles, the Daily Caller reports, regarding a ruling from the Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The Daily Caller reports:

The Aug. 11 ruling, which the FEC has not yet made public, concluded both Sanders’ campaigns broke federal law after “knowingly” employing three “foreign national” staffers from Mexico and Argentina who participated in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Both campaigns have agreed to pay an FEC penalty of $15,000 combined.

“They were tasked with planning and executing events intended to mobilize the Spanish-speaking and Latino communities to support Sanders and serving as contacts for Latino media outlets,” the FEC ruling on the staffers says. “The employees worked to help craft and deliver campaign policy on the issue of immigration and other issues of interest to the Latino community.”

The undocumented DACA staffers for both campaigns included former Latino Outreach Organizer Maria Bélen Sisa, former National Latino Outreach Strategist Cesar Vargas and former Press Secretary for Latino Outreach Erika Andiola. Andiola and Vargas are from Mexico while Sisa is from Argentina, according to the ruling.

DACA is an Obama-era policy that grants illegal aliens under 16 who came to the U.S. work permits but does not confer citizenship. Sanders has supported the policy and President Joe Biden will codify it as a federal regulation, the Department of Homeland Security announced last Tuesday.

Coolidge Reagan Foundation (CRF) counsel Dan Backer said, “I find it incredibly ironic and not at all surprising that the same people who were so outraged by the Russia hoax were at the same time violating laws to prevent foreign influence in our elections,” CRF is a First Amendment watchdog that filed an ethics complaint in 2019 on Sanders hiring illegals, which prompted the FEC ruling.

On Twitter, Backer wrote following the ruling, “FIRST, I got Hillary fined 6-figures. THEN, I busted Bernie for another big FEC fine,” adding, “A lot of folks talk the talk, but at Coolidge Reagan Foundation we’re getting the job done. And wait until you see what’s next….”
