The injustice is illegal immigrants skip the line.
The injustice is illegal immigrants take jobs from (mostly unskilled) American workers — this is especially true for the least educated, who are most likely to compete with immigrants.
The injustice is illegal immigrants get free healthcare, food stamps and tuition when American citizens break their backs trying to pay for their own (and, of course, the illegals).
The injustice is illegal immigrants get housing and human services.
The injustice is terrorists use illegal immigration to sneak into the country.
The injustice is a terrorist operative is not just a Congressman, but DNC deputy chair, who gets a national platform to spew and propagandize for the hijrah.

Democratic Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison, the deputy chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC), claimed on Wednesday that America’s national borders create “an injustice” by keeping Mexican workers from traveling to the United States to look for higher-paying jobs.
Ellison claimed in an interview with progressive activist Rabbi Michael Lerner that America’s “prosperity is based on the want that is experienced in other parts of the world” and complained that “people, regular people, cannot go back and forth across the border seeking out the highest wages.”
“We just have to say that the 12 million undocumented people in the United States are here because somebody wants them to be. But they want them here to do the work, but they don’t want them to get any rights. They don’t want to pay them fairly. They don’t want them to be able to bargain collectively. They don’t want them to be able to get occupational safety and standards. And that is what’s really going on,” Ellison said.
“And these trade agreements, you know, they allow capital to travel other borders, and all capital is, is people who happen to own something we call a corporation, which is a legal arrangement which gives them special rights. And labor, which is a regular person, cannot travel back and forth across the border,” he continued. “And so corporations, certain people who get certain rights, can go back and forth across the border seeking out the lowest wages, but people, regular people, cannot go back and forth across the border seeking out the highest wages. So what it creates is an imbalance. It creates an injustice.”
Ellison’s comments, which were quickly clipped and circulated by the Republican National Committee, are just the latest instance of the congressman signaling his support for a far-left, open-borders agenda.
Ellison sported a T-shirt calling for the elimination of national borders while walking in a parade in May. The next month, he posed for a picture next to a sign that read, “No human being is illegal on stolen land.”
During Wednesday’s interview, he also expressed support for giving global citizens control over American corporations.
