Biden’s Immigration Bill Offers Amnesty to Illegal Aliens in America

Biden’s Immigration Bill Offers Amnesty to Illegal Aliens in America

Republicans will likely vote no since it does not offer enhanced or better border security.

President Joe Biden sent Congress his immigration bill, with language that could make people think it is not amnesty.

But as Hot Air’s Jazz Shaw said, we need to call it what it is: “full-on amnesty.”

What the White House wrote:

Create an earned roadmap to citizenship for undocumented individuals. The bill allows undocumented individuals to apply for temporary legal status, with the ability to apply for green cards after five years if they pass criminal and national security background checks and pay their taxes. Dreamers, TPS holders, and immigrant farmworkers who meet specific requirements are eligible for green cards immediately under the legislation. After three years, all green card holders who pass additional background checks and demonstrate knowledge of English and U.S. civics can apply to become citizens. Applicants must be physically present in the United States on or before January 1, 2021. The Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) may waive the presence requirement for those deported on or after January 20, 2017 who were physically present for at least three years prior to removal for family unity and other humanitarian purposes. Lastly, the bill further recognizes America as a nation of immigrants by changing the word “alien” to “noncitizen” in our immigration laws.

Summary:

Over 11 million illegal aliens can apply for a five-year program, which allows them to avoid deportation, keep working, and pay taxes. Every single one of them can do this.

As Jazz Shaw points out, allowing illegal aliens to work violates federal law: 8 U.S. Code § 1324a – Unlawful employment of aliens.

Those 11 million become eligible for a green card after five years. They can apply for citizenship three years after that.

Biden and the Democrats want to make “[D]reamers, TPS holders [Temporary Protected Status] and immigrant farmworkers who meet specific requirements” eligible for green cards immediately.

There are other green card changes:

It would also open up legal pathways to immigration even further, including expanding the controversial green card lottery from 55,000 a year to 80,000 a year and exempting children and spouses from visa cap numbers.

The bill would “recapture” unused visas from previous years to help clear backlogs, and increase visa caps. It also scraps the “unlawful presence bars” — bans on legal re-entry to the U.S. for those who have been in the country unlawfully.

The bill also eliminates “the penalty barring those immigrants who live in the U.S. without authorization and who then leave the country from returning for three to 10 years.”

Yes, the DHS secretary can “waive the presence requirement for those deported on or after January 20, 2017…”

Who took office around that time? President Donald Trump. The government deported around 800,000 people during Trump’s administration.

I wonder if leftists will complain about the people needing to have “knowledge of English and U.S. civics.” I thought it was racist to push English on immigrants.

The bill promises more funding to improve immigration courts and process asylum requests faster.

America needed that funding for decades, but she needs it more now since Biden and the Democrats want to open the door.

Biden tries to woo Republicans by prioritizing “smart border controls.” Even the Associated Press admitted there is not much under the section to get Republican support.

Biden promises to build on “existing border resources with technology and infrastructure” but uses vague language. It makes no changes except maybe some Flextape on procedures already in place.

The Democrats want to spend $4 billion in four-years across different agencies “to address the underlying causes of migration.” In other words, send a ton of money to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras because we all know those governments are clean and have no corruption! Yes, Biden says it’s on the condition those countries use the money to end violence, poverty, and crime. I just snorted.

Administration officials told CNN that Biden “remained open to negotiating” and “willing to work with Congress.”

Biden might face aggression from fellow Democrats. I wonder what AOC and other hard-leftists will say since it does not give the illegal aliens citizenship tomorrow.

The bill needs 10 Republicans:

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell recently called it a “massive proposal for blanket amnesty that would gut enforcement of American laws while creating huge new incentives for people to rush here illegally at the same time” while even Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., who was part of the 2013 “Gang of Eight” dismissed it as a non-starter.

We have to assume in any calculations that there are at least 6 Republican Senators, if not more, who will vote for this in order to both be paid off and to be “civil” to the Democrats.

And they’ll get financial aid for college etc. All the bulsh*t the Dems love and said they would do.

And all the Chamber of Commerce RINOs.

    All paid for by US citizens, who don’t get any of those breaks. ?

    I find it extremely frustrating that I’m supposed to pay for my college, my kids college, and illegal alien “dreamers” college too.

    In addition to our now having to pay for the free medical care my husband was promised for life after 22 years in the military. At 65 you have to go on Tricare for Life, and you can’t get that unless you are paying for Medicare Part B, so while *it* may be free, it really isn’t. And starting in January, family members on regular Tricare have to pay premiums no matter what version of Tricare you’re on. So not free either.

    If the government can unilaterally change the terms of its contracts with citizens, we ought to be able to change the terms of our contracts with them (such as taxes) also.

    And now I’ve just branded myself a white supremecist, right?

      JusticeDelivered in reply to LibraryGryffon. | February 18, 2021 at 4:35 pm

      Maybe we should embrace the idea of whites and Asians being the result of evolutionary improvement. Environmental conditions killed off so many dumb whites and Asians that IQ was raised.

      Blacks were left behind, far behind, until colonialism led to cross breeding, which produced Hispanics and American blacks. There is a problem that we have too many people who are only suited for menial jobs, and far fewer menial jobs because automation has replaced them.

      Those people want more of the good life and are incapable of earning it. They also tend to be unreliable, demand more than what they are worth, and they increasingly drive more automation.

      One reason this is producing so much strife is that the workplace requires a much higher IQ than in the past.

        Soon, most menial jobs will be automated.
        In about 10 years, we will have a welfare state like a sci-fi novel. Perhaps 50 million structurally unemployed or underemployed.

        What will 15 to 20 million new uneducated citizens do? There will not even be enough jobs for those we have now. Crime will skyrocket.

        Biden’s America.

          About ten years of my engineering career was doing automation, basically a system analyst for automation integrating mechanical hardware, electrical hardware and software. All kinds of automation. In some cases it would be a whole production line.

          I also did early robotics. One project was for Buick City, they wanted a Unimate electro-hydraulic robot to move heavy cylinder heads from a stack on a pallet to a conveyor.

          At that time there were two large black men who were alternating moving a head. They were too heavy for most people to handle, so it was hard to have suitable workers on hand to do the job. And, the two men doing the job consistently blew off coming to work.

          Unimate robots were run by PDP11 mini computers. There were many problems with using them in automation.

          My job on that project was to write software for an industrial computer known as a Programable Logic Controller (PLC). At that time PLCs did not have any internal math functions. They only had visual series – parallel circuits. I wrote math subroutines in ladder logic, and I created a teachable program to run the robot point to point.

          I used to catch all sorts of flak about replacing jobs with robots and automation.

        CRT and the rest of the agenda being pushed is innately racist. Affirmative Action is innately racist.

        If they are going to take this ever bolder racist approach, then it is time to push back in ways which they will find objectionable.

        It is a fact that all racial groups have an average IQ. That IQ varies, from the lowest average of 59 to the highest average of 112.

        People with low average IQ will produce fewer people of higher IQ per capita. As the average IQ drops the likelihood of producing an Einstein stretches out to incredibly low probability, as in one thousandth or less.

        It is interesting that Dems advocate following the science, but then consistently do not.

        That is reality, we cannot change it, neither can they. It has nothing to do with racism.

Eleven million to start with. Then, with chain migration, you’ll have MILLIONS more who are eligible to come to the US.

Why is this a good idea??

    CountMontyC in reply to NYBruin. | February 18, 2021 at 4:26 pm

    Sorry about the down vote. Meant to hit reply.
    Btw some estimates put the actual count of illegal aliens at 20-30 million.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to CountMontyC. | February 18, 2021 at 4:39 pm

      See: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=yale-mit%2Billegal&t=h_&ia=web

      22-30 million with an average reproductive rate of 3.5

        A year or so ago MIT/Yale did an analysis which said the number of illegals was at least 22 million. Ann Coulter, who can do research, says the number is closer to 30 million or more. I wonder where the 11 million number comes from. It keeps popping up. How does anyone know?

        A key phrase is “family unification.” The way I understand that, it means that say they let in 20 million new citizens. Each one of them can bring in as many siblings or relatives as they want. So a legal path for 20 million visitors really translates into a much larger number, a multiple.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to Titan28. | February 18, 2021 at 10:17 pm

          And then you multiply that number by 3.5 per generation. Basically this allows Hispanics to dominate the country, and then Muslims will be an even bigger problem, because their reproductive rate is over 7.

          A Chinese church I visited holds a service in Mandarin for the “parents”. Doddering old people brought here by their children, can’t speak English, on social services of some kind or other (the children said so), stared at Whitey here as if she was an exotic zoo animal, and not friendly stares or smiles. At least a hundred of them!

          As a taxpayer it made me sick.

    CommoChief in reply to NYBruin. | February 18, 2021 at 4:57 pm

    Which is why I argued for granting a green card to the ‘dreamers’ and a new ‘yellow’ card status to ‘non criminal’ aliens; only crime was entering unlawfully.

    That yellow card would have been restricted to individual person, no chain migration. No criminal record beyond a speeding or parking ticket. It was also limited in number to 10 million because that’s the number the d were using. That proposal was roundly condemned on these pages.

    Further it would have largely defused the issue politically. It’s hard to sustain a call of xenophobia if the folks being accused of that passed a 10 million person bill to allow a new category of lawful presence. To be sure the d would try but realistically the odds of making that charge stick in voters minds are not high.

    Instead we are now facing the prospect of legalization for something like 25 to 35 million unlawful aliens. We have to fight smarter in the future.

    Edward in reply to NYBruin. | February 19, 2021 at 10:15 am

    But that 11 million figure was touted more than a decade ago. It is a lie, with more accurate figures ranging from 20 million to as many as 30 million, possibly a bit more. And, if the Reagan amnesty is any yardstick to measure by, we can double whatever number are actually here and “legally” meet the requirements of whatever passes. Illegals will still be flooding into the country and forged documents to “prove” the Illegal complied with the new law’s requirements will again be available in flea markets across the Southwestern US (and beyond).

And, of course, if you fail to support this craziness, you are immediately branded a “Nazi” and a “racist”

    Edward in reply to NYBruin. | February 19, 2021 at 10:20 am

    Call me anything but late for supper. I don’t understand why so many people are cowed by the prospect of someone (or many people) calling them names. If more of us told the Socialist/Communist Party apparatchiki that we don’t care what they call us, they would quit. But, as Mom told us long ago, as long as we react to the name calling, they will continue to call us names. It’s what bullies do.

JusticeDelivered | February 18, 2021 at 3:58 pm

Of those Republicans, which are up for and merit ouster in 2022 primaries? Which Dem seats are vulnerable?

Has anyone started a raffle yet on how many GOPe Senators will find a ‘conservative’ reason to vote for this?

There have to be at least 15 possible GOP ‘yeah’ votes. Start with the ones who voted to convict Trump and add all the usual suspects. I’ll be surprised if at least 3-6 in that group don’t find a reason to vote for some version of this.

Maybe after Schumer tosses in some meaningless fig leaf BS that sounds semi-good but amounts to nothing. Like a ‘promise’ to beef up border security in a few years. That’s worked in the past.

So where is FEMA, where is the NG, has Biden even spoke about this winter disaster at all?

Press giving him no questions at all, nothing, zero, da nada…

WTF people get on the phones people are literally freezing to death!!!!

Step 1 in turning every election into a one party race.
And no one can possibly believe it’s only 11 million illegals, that is so 1990s.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Skip. | February 18, 2021 at 4:53 pm

    The most recent study”

    See: https://duckduckgo.com/?q=yale-mit%2Billegal&t=h_&ia=web

    22-30 million with an average reproductive rate of 3.5

    And that is on top of the ones Reagan let stay.

      Add chain immigration and the number really jumps… upwards 100 million. No entiendo inglés.

      French in high school. Russian in college. Those I wanted to learn but now I have to learn another language as my native (zenophobic) tongue is too racist.

      Nuevo Venezuela here we come.

      At least I think I can get by without Chinese..as the official world language in my lifetime.

Where does everyone get this eleven million number? Since we are guessing mine is twenty two million. They will register to vote immediately. Who will verify their citizenship in every blue state?

    Milhouse in reply to Gersh204. | February 18, 2021 at 8:46 pm

    Why would this make them more likely to register to vote? Anyone who is willing to take the very small risk of registering illegally has already done so; those who haven’t been willing to take even that small risk will be less willing to do so when they’ve got the promise of a green card in five years if they’re not caught breaking any laws.

That 11 million number has been floating around for decades. I doubt it’s that low today. Maybe 30 million? That should cut down on the cheating needed to win elections if we can just give all of them enough free stuff, they’ll vote correctly for a long time.

Hopefully this bill fails. I am not sure it gets enough votes in the Senate to overcome a filibuster.

Senate control via winning one of the two Senate runoffs and sending out $2,000 v $600 seems less expensive in the long run.

I think I’ll wait and see. Maybe it’s a trial balloon. Let the House pass their version and we’ll circle back when it gets to the Senate for debate. Both of my Senators are D so they won’t listen to me anyway.

    Dimsdale in reply to r2468. | February 18, 2021 at 6:18 pm

    Same here re: Senators and “reps.”

    I am hoping it is a “bid high, settle in the middle” scenario, but since they control all the levers of government, likely not.

    On the good side, they usually go way overboard, and the pendulum is forced back good and hard in the midterms.

      Edward in reply to Dimsdale. | February 19, 2021 at 10:29 am

      There is the usual GOP mindset – let the Socialist/Communist Party “bid high” and we will settle in the middle. Why not hold out for “none”? Not practical they will say, why is it not practical? For the Socialist/Communist Party which views illegal aliens and open border(s) as a good thing (TM), it isn’t like those millions of additional illegal aliens won’t come here if we don’t give amnesty to the tens of millions already here. They will still come, and are coming, no matter what is done in DC.

Well, they’re here, they’re assimilated (e.g. English as a first language), maybe, and integrated (e.g. diversity-free), in their communities. That said, emigration reform to mitigate progress of [catastrophic] [anthropogenic] immigration reform (e.g. trafficking, waterboarded children, trail of tears) and collateral damage (e.g. excess deaths, rape-rapes, civil rights violations) at both ends of the bridge and throughout. Related, Mr. Biden, close Planned Parent/hood, tear down the walls. You can’t abort the baby, cannibalize her profitable parts, sequester her carbon pollutants, and have her, too. Then, again, the established Church/Synagogue/Temple/Chamber/Clinic/Corporation/etc. is Progressive: one step forward, two steps backward, the established religion is Pro-Choice (e.g. “ethical”), and the popular ideology is liberal (i.e. divergent), so maybe they can.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to n.n. | February 18, 2021 at 8:09 pm

    CCP has turned cannibalizing body parts into an industry.

    Edward in reply to n.n. | February 19, 2021 at 10:37 am

    They are assimilated? I do hope that was intended to be sarcasm. When my grandparents got off the boat they were expected to learn English and the kids learned English in school because that was the only language used except in “foreign language” classes. But this is now and I suspect CA and AZ are essentially the same as here in TX, we are expected to learn the Mexican version of Spanish. That is how assimilation works now.

There’s *no* way the Dems are this stupid. This is a shoot-the-moon proposal, a way to move the Overton window and show how they are willing to ‘compromise’ with the Republicans by only taking half the cake now, and coming back for the whole cake later (like they plan with gun control and a whole raft of other leftist dream schemes)

And its not Eleven Million, its more like Twenty to Thirty million illegals that will also have an opportunity to become citizens in three years. Just in time for the 2024 election. Oh and did you hear that traitor Hailey wanted to meet with Trump yesterday and he graciously told her to go FHSelf. If she thinks she’s getting Trump support after what she said, she should have kept her mouth shut.

    Milhouse in reply to foxmuldar. | February 18, 2021 at 8:43 pm

    It’s not three years, it’s eight years. Five years to get green cards and then three years for citizenship.

      LibraryGryffon in reply to Milhouse. | February 18, 2021 at 11:27 pm

      It’s supposed to be eight years. But you just know the Ds will find a way to move it forward. Or at least make it so that registering to vote while not a citizen is no longer illegal so voting in three years won’t affect them.

The Democrat shepherded death of America by a thousand Executive Orders.

Is there any point where even the remaining sane Democrats don’t think Biden and his leftist handlers have gone to far?

Way I see it anything the Democrats want will be passed, wouldn’t count on 50 erstwhile Republicans stopping them.

What a brilliant idea from President Potato Head. What could possibly go wrong? /s

Who cares? No one is doing anything to actively challenge the 2020 election fraud. The longer people wait, the harder it becomes to change anything. With the current attitude toward election security, the Dems will win in 2022. Then we have two years without any GOP input into the government process. This means that legislation has to be repealed, not merely changed through an EO. Come 2024, the Dems will simply install their chosen candidates all over again. And so on.

Welcome to the future.

Lastly, the bill further recognizes America as a nation of immigrants by changing the word “alien” to “noncitizen” in our immigration laws

Huh? That makes no sense at all. How does it “further recognize” anything? The two words are synonyms. Except that “noncitizen” is a clumsy neologism used only by people who don’t realize there’s already a perfectly cromulent word that does just the job they’re looking for.

Susan Rice is in charge, not Biden. And definitely not the ‘Ho.

Another “fail” for the illegitimate PONTUS.

And yet, no one can articulate (or event try) how this benefits AMERICANS. Answer: it does not.

IMPEACH BIDEN !
