Actress Olivia Wilde sent a Thanksgiving Day message urging President Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, to push an amnesty plan in the West Wing of the White House that would allow up to 3.3 million illegal aliens to permanently remain in the United States.
In an appeal to Ivanka Trump via Instagram, Wilde urged the first daughter to use her “influence” to “advocate for a CLEAN Dream Act by December” in order to give amnesty to potentially millions of illegal aliens who are enrolled in the now-ended President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
In what many suggest is defiance of President Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda, which does not include amnesty for illegal aliens, Ivanka Trump previously advocated publicly for DACA illegal aliens, calling them “innocent people” who needed to be allowed to remain in the U.S. permanently — and thus, allowed to eventually bring their extended foreign relatives to the U.S. as well.
“I am of the opinion — and the president has stated — that we have to figure out a good solution that protects these innocent people, many of whom were brought to the country as children,” Ivanka said last month during a panel at the “Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit,” Breitbart News reported. “There has to be a long-term fix, it can’t be bandaged over on a presidential level by another executive order.”
Ivanka’s pro-amnesty comment on DACA was immediately met with backlash from Trump supporters and Angel families, the relatives of Americans who have been killed by illegal aliens.
Angel Mom and co-founder of Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC) Mary Ann Mendoza, whose son Brandon Mendoza was murdered by an illegal alien, slammed Ivanka’s comments.

“I didn’t vote for Ivanka,” Mendoza told Breitbart News Daily radio at the time. “I voted for President Trump. And I’m sure if Ivanka had been affected by illegal criminal activity in her family, I think she’d have a different stance on this. I’d love to be able to meet with her face-to-face, look her in the eye as a mother to a mother and say, ‘Which child would you choose to lose at the hands of an illegal to support your agenda?'”
Since DACA’s inception, more than 2,100 illegal aliens have had their protected status revoked for either being criminals or gang members.
