Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has reportedly hired a twice-arrested illegal alien as his deputy national secretary.

Belen Sisa enters the job with one year left of DACA-protection from deportation, The Washington Examiner reported Thursday:

The hiring of Belen Sisa, an Arizona leftist activist, was announced Wednesday evening. Sisa, who says she was brought to this country illegally from Argentina by her parents at age six, is currently protected from deportation under President Barack Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program.

According the Examiner article, Sisa claims to have organized a prison strike:

She has been arrested at least twice for protests throughout her activist career. As a college senior in 2017, she was jailed for her role in a sit-in outside of Sen. Chuck Schumer's, D-N.Y., office. While in jail, Sisa told reporters that she organized a "prison strike."

Just weeks before that, she was arrested for a protest outside the Senate Hart Office Building.

The Examiner report comes the same day that Sen. Sanders’ fellow Democrat, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) declared on Twitter that “Tokenism *is* racism” – in reference to Republican Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) allowing an African-American colleague attest to President Donald Trump’s character, as CNSNews.com reported:

Thursday, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) applauded the “bravery” of Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.), who accused Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) of a racist act Wednesday for daring to allow an African-American colleague testify that President Donald Trump is not a racist.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tweeted her praise of Tlaib, including a link to commentary and video of the incident: "Total bravery from @RashidaTlaib as she reminds the nation that TOKENISM *IS* RACISM"

"Rashida Tlaib told GOP Rep. Meadows that using a Black Trump employee as a ‘prop’ to show Trump isn’t racist was a racist act in itself — he responded by demanding her words be struck from the record, nearly in tears"
