A GOP Senate hasn’t exactly been a hard barrier against illegal alien amnesty in the past, but there would have at least been some kind of shot of stopping or slowing down the amnesty express. Obama had to resort to DACA. Biden’s got a firm Democrat majority for at least two years, plus whatever political space is being carved out for him by the media and Big Tech after the Capitol riot. And the Democrats are going to go for some massive demographic vote rigging.
The convoys are inbound and so is the illegal alien amnesty.
During his first days in office, President-elect Joe Biden plans to send a groundbreaking legislative package to Congress to address the long-elusive goal of immigration reform, including what’s certain to be a controversial centerpiece: a pathway to citizenship for an estimated 11 million immigrants who are in the country without legal status, according to immigrant rights activists in communication with the Biden-Harris transition team.
What we used to call illegal aliens before the media orwellized the term.
The bill also would provide a shorter pathway to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of people with temporary protected status and beneficiaries of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals who were brought to the U.S. as children, and probably also for certain front-line essential workers, vast numbers of whom are immigrants.
Democrats shoved this stuff into coronavirus bills where it didn’t pass. Now there’s not much of an obstacle. Front line workers have been listed as anyone dealing with food or manufacturing. That means expect all those illegal aliens in meatpacking plants and farms to get an express route to voting.
In a significant departure from many previous immigration bills passed under both Democratic and Republican administrations, the proposed legislation would not contain any provisions directly linking an expansion of immigration with stepped-up enforcement and security measures, said Marielena Hincapié, executive director of the National Immigration Law Center Immigrant Justice Fund, who has been consulted on the proposal by Biden staffers.
Why bother? The security additions in the past were figleafs and it was there for Republicans to claim that they were voting for border security. The Republicans don’t matter. So there’s no need for a figleaf.
Under Biden’s plan, immigrants would become eligible for legal permanent residence after five years and for U.S. citizenship after an additional three years — a faster path to citizenship than in previous immigration bills.
In an interview this week with Univision, Harris gave a preview of the bill’s provisions, including automatic green cards for immigrants with TPS and DACA status, a decrease in wait times for U.S. citizenship from 13 to eight years, and an increase in the number of immigration judges to relieve a significant backlog in cases.
The Trump administration had worked hard to jettison TPS, especially those here due to natural disasters from previous decades, expect this to be reversed in a big way. And forget the 11 million number. It’s going to be a lot higher than that. This is part of the Democrat endgame for turning Texas blue.
For everyone who said that the Georgia election didn’t matter, we’re going to find out the difference a weak Republican majority that can be pressured to do the right thing and a Democrat majority that’s fully radicalized, has a single agenda, and is out to fundamentally change America.
