Are democrats empowering illegal immigration by being in favor of DACA and wanting to give illegals bailouts?
The United States was built on immigration by people from Western Europe.

Not really. Most DACA recipients did not choose to come here, illegally or otherwise, and were brought here against their will by their parents.

While DACA was a pull factor for a while word has filtered out for the most part that it only applies to people who entered within a specified time frame. This is why claiming asylum has become the new tactic. The only political party friction between Dems and the GOP is whether migrants will become citizen voters or remain an undocumented workforce. Neither sides has any real intention of stopping the flow of people. But the recent shift amongst Latinx people to the GOP (some 45% of Latinx men in some places) might just convince Dems to stop assuming that all brown people will naturally vote for them. This may actually cause some of the cheerleading to die down because it no longer serves its intended purpose. But to be fair it's not like any Republican prior to Trump even gave lip service to illegal migration being a problem.

And they are also garnering the illegal alien votes, and votes by the pro-illegal alien lobby - as well as gathering in their money.

Because illegal aliens vote Democrat.

"Are democrats empowering illegal immigration"
Does a bear go chit in the woods?

No, and 'illegals' is not a word.
Illegal immigration is only a misdemeanor
The US was built on immigrants. Unlike Trump fans, they know America is great.
