The Democrats’ latest fundraising email is signed by an illegal alien.

The email comes from a so-called “Dreamer” named Carlos Adolfo Gonzalez, who claims that he was brought to the country illegally as a child from the Dominican Republic by his mother after the death of his father. Now, 16 years later, according to the email, he wants people to support Democrats because he wants “to come out of the shadows and gain citizenship.”

But, according to his LinkedIn profile, Gonzalez has not been hiding in the shadows. He is currently the Statewide Capacity Building Coordinator for the Pennsylvania Immigration & Citizenship Coalition, a left-wing group advocating for amnesty. Before that, he worked in the United States House of Representatives as Lantos-Humanity in Action Policy Fellow for Democratic California Rep. Michael Honda.

In addition to those jobs, Gonzalez has worked almost exclusively for liberal organizations advancing a progressive agenda, including trying to raise the minimum wage.
