The DNC hired illegal immigrant Cindy Nava in June to help craft the committee’s 2016 political message, allegedly in violation of federal law prohibiting foreign nationals from participating “directly or indirectly in the decision-making process” of election-related activities.
Judicial Watch filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission last week pointing out the hire and asking for an investigation. “The DNC has actively and willingly promoted its act of lawlessness,” the complaint reads. “Therefore, we request that the FEC investigate this act.”
The Washington Post reported the hire in June, referring to Nava as an “undocumented” immigrant who would work with Democratic political operatives “to craft policy platforms.” (RELATED: Hillary Hires Ex-Illegal As Latino Outreach Director)
The complaint alleges the DNC “knowingly hired” an illegal immigrant to help set its policy agenda and in so doing “willfully and knowingly” violated federal law and policy.
“No wonder this nation has a border and an illegal alien crisis,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement Wednesday. “Not only do we have a major political party knowingly employing an illegal alien, but also openly boasting about it to the nation’s press.”
