On Thursday, House and Senate Democrats announced immigration “reform” legislation that grants amnesty to tens of millions of illegal aliens and gives them a pathway to citizenship. It’s all about the votes, folks. This bill probably won’t pass in the Senate, because there may be one of possibly two Democrats who haven’t completely lost their marbles and would vote against it, but you never know. The Biden White House understands this.
The bill is loaded with political wishlist items – or should I say hitlist items – of radical leftists who have no inkling whatsoever to help America first and just want the votes.
The Democrats have been telling us that there are 11 million illegal aliens in the United States for about 25 to 30 years. Do they really expect us to believe that no more came in since then? Or do they think something silly is going on like for every illegal that covers over the border they slap hands with another who’s leaving? Why do liberals never raise the number from 11 million? A better question is how come not a single member of the mainstream news media has ever asked a Democrat why they keep giving the number as 11 million. Again because it’s all about the votes. They don’t want the American people to know that it’s more like 25 to 30 million illegal aliens that are living inside the country illegally.
If they do this and they succeed, then Republicans will never win another election. Everything the Democrats are doing is to give themselves more power. They haven’t done a damn thing to help America in decades, it’s always all about power.
The bill is 353 pages long. It would create an 8-year plan to get up to 30 million illegal aliens citizenship, people have broken the law by crossing our borders illegally. The Democrats want to reward the lawbreakers with American citizenship.
Some of the goodies the Democrats threw into the bill are sending foreign aid to countries south of the border, relaxing rules for claiming asylum down to “this one’s breathing,” spending money at the border to help process all the unregistered Democrats coming in instead of building a wall to keep them out until they come in legally. They’re giving illegals Social Security numbers and health insurance under Obamacare for illegals given the status of “lawful prospective immigrant” and they’re probably going to charge us for it.
“We have an economic and moral imperative to pass big, bold and inclusive immigration reform that leaves no one behind, not our Dreamers and [Temporary Protective Status] holders, not our farm workers and meat packers, not our essential workers and not our parents, friends and neighbors,” Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) who sponsored the bill told Politico on Thursday.
Actually, the dopey Senator from New Jersey should know that we have no moral imperative whatsoever to take in millions of people who cannot take care of themselves and make American citizens pay for it all because they will one day vote for Democrats. This is some serious bullschtein. The Democrats are using our money to help build a system where they will never lose another election again. Talk about immorality.
The bill has nothing in it to increase border security or help immigration law enforcement. Democrats know Republicans always demand those specific things before negotiations can even begin, but the Dems are very candid about their unwillingness to compromise.
“We have compromised too much and capitulated too quickly to fringe voices who have refused to accept the humanity and contributions of immigrants to our country,” Menendez said.
Don’t you love how lowlifes like Menendez conflate legal immigrants with illegal immigrants? They are not the same by any stretch.
It’s already known that this legislation isn’t seen as any kind of reform, because it isn’t on the face of it. Rather, it’s being pushed now as a warning to Americans that the progressives are now in control and they better get used to having things like this shoved down their throats.
I honestly believe that Democrats hire psychologists to study the behavior of people who are being controlled to help them manipulate the people. I believe they put this bill up knowing that it won’t pass so that the next time they do a bill this crazy the American people will think we’ve been down this road before so it must not be that bad because we survived it, forgetting from the back of their mind that the original didn’t pass because it was ludicrous. This is all psychological mumbo jumbo that the Democrats play all the time. It’s called incrementalism, a plan of action where instead of asking for everything they want all at once because they know it’ll be shut down by the majority of people, they push little bits at a time, incrementally, and they do head fakes with bills like this knowing that they’re not going to pass but the next time they propose something similar it just might.
A “source” told Politico, “This bill was not designed to get to 60. There’s no pathway to 60.”
The main purpose of the bill was to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and make them full-blooded US citizens with voting rights. Illegals qualified must have been physically on US soil on or before January 1, 2021, unless they were granted a waiver from the secretary of Homeland Security for humanitarian purposes. That last part about the waiver is what they’re going to exploit because you would think that it would be very few people who would be granted a waiver but Democrats will push through 10 million people by giving them waivers, and then they will think you’re the crazy one when you complain about it.
The bill has zero provisions to increase border security, probably because Republicans favor that since they tend to put American citizens before illegals. There’s no funding to finish building the wall and they will spend more money on technology to identify narcotics and contraband and it authorizes the secretary of Homeland Security to “develop and implement a strategy to manage and secure the southern border of the United States by deploying smart technology.”
