Skip to comments.Mitch McConnell: Joe Biden’s Amnesty Is ‘Rough Day … for American Workers’
Posted on 01/21/2021 7:15:25 PM PST by E. Pluribus Unum
Amnesty for illegal immigrants is bad for American workers, according to a tweet from GOP Senate Leader Mitch McConnell.
“A proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty? Rough ‘day one’ for American workers,” said the tweet.
The failed Paris deal will hurt American families while China and Russia grow emissions.
The Keystone cancellation will kill union jobs and hurt U.S. energy security.
And a proposal to gut immigration enforcement and give blanket amnesty?
Rough "day one" for American workers.
— Leader McConnell (@LeaderMcConnell) January 21, 2021
The tweet is McConnell’s first mention of immigration on his Twitter account.
The tweet came as GOP politicians are moving to embrace the populist policies they will need to get reelected in 2022 and 2024, and also to regain a majority in the Senate.
“Before we deal with immigration, we need to … make sure everyone has the chance to find a good job,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said January 19. He added:
America should always welcome immigrants who want to become Americans. But we need laws that decide who and how many people can come here, and those laws must be followed and enforced. There are many issues I think we can work cooperatively with President-elect Biden, but a blanket amnesty for people who are here unlawfully isn’t going to be one of them.
“It is deeply troubling that most of Joe Biden’s first acts as president were to protect illegal immigrants and encourage illegal immigration at the expense of American jobs and workers,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said after Biden announced his amnesty plans.
Other GOP senators focus on regulation, businesses, borrowing, and taxes while ignoring the damaging impact of foreign workers moving into Americans’ jobs.

Stop pretending you care all of a sudden, Senator Cocaine.
Gee, Mitch, you had a guy in there a couple of days ago who would NEVER let this happen.
F’ off, China Mitch.
Moron. You and we all knew what would happen but you chose to do it anyway. STFU!
Sure Mitch, every Repub you promoted believes in the same thing Biden does. Nice lip service though.
Gee, Bitch-connell, I guess you should have worked a bit harder to keep President Trump in office - instead of stabbing him in the back for your Chi-com partners, you effing Judas a-hole.
These jackasses blocked Trump at every turn from securing the border and ramping up enforcement.
Liars, one and all.
Yeah, so was his executive order on the pipeline and ANWR drilling stop.
Maybe you shouldn’t have stabbed Trump in the back you closet Chinese bribe taker.
Oh and tell us again why you were kicked outta the national guard after 6 weeks. The official story was a vision problem. Some say you couldn’t tell men from women.
I guess the rino’s are already in “Let’s pretend to fight for America” mode.
McConnell is just as disgusting as Chuckie in my book.
That’s rich coming from a guy who’s been pro-open borders his entire career as a Unipartier.
It’s ridiculous that he thinks we will continue fall for their false rhetoric. You say the words Cocaine Mitch but we know you are just paying lip service.
Mitch YOU are the reason I switched my party affiliation from Republican after 47 years. Among others. But you are the worst.
It won’t work. Eighty million people are well aware of where the RINOs stand.
I know the flames will come, but I just don’t know that I can cast a vote for the republican party again. I’m just so done being played like a fiddle.
