    The social spending bill approved by the House Friday in a 220-213 vote includes the most extensive immigration reform package reviewed by Congress in 35 years, albeit in a much reduced version from what proponents originally sought. If the provision is approved by the Senate as-is, the immigration measure in the bill would allow undocumented people present in the U.S. since before 2011 up to 10 years of work authorization, falling short of an initial goal to offer them a pathway to citizenship. The provision approved by the House offers a sort of waiver to immigration laws, using a process...

    Mexico’s President issued a veiled threat to Republican congressmen who oppose an immigration deal to grant amnesty to 11 million migrants who illegally entered the U.S. Politicians who oppose the forthcoming plan will be singled out and denounced during daily press briefings, he said. During a morning press briefing this week, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador praised President Joe Biden, claiming no other U.S. counterpart had made a commitment to address 11 million illegal immigrants.

    “There is no building back anything without us," says a New York immigrant activist. They face tough odds, but immigration advocates are pushing Democrats for a better deal in a bill heading for a vote for the millions of people living in the U.S. without legal immigration status. Advocates want to restore a provision that was yanked, which would have created a mechanism for undocumented immigrants who were here before 2010 to get green cards. They face an uphill climb to restore it. Angelica Salas, the director of the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, which is based in Los Angeles,...
  • Biden’s Build Back Better plan includes amnesty for 8 million illegal immigrants

    President Biden ran on a “Build Back Better” agenda in his 2020 campaign, which included infrastructure and economic reforms. Hidden in Democrats $1.6 Trillion spending package to advance his agenda is a plan to give amnesty to 8 million illegal immigrants. Some sources, such as the Heritage Foundation, put the number even higher, at 11 to 22 million. Democratic politicians have said that amnesty and Biden’s infrastructure bill are “inextricably linked”, and will refuse to consider one without the other in the bill. “We have to have total agreement on both before we move either” said Senate Majority Leader Chuck...
  • Dems Roll Out 'Plan C' to Cram Illegal Alien Amnesty Into the Budget Reconciliation Bill

    This summer, the Biden administration had a plan for withdrawing from Afghanistan: Pull all of our troops out by a date certain and trust that the Taliban would play nice and all would go smoothly. Apparently, they never really had a Plan B. We know how that turned out. The president’s allies in Congress seemingly drew a lesson from that debacle and appear determined not to get caught short when it comes to what seems like the Democrats’ single greatest political priority: gaining amnesty for millions of illegal aliens. After seeing Plans A and B dashed by Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth...

    Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy held a roundtable discussion Thursday as a means to "expose" one of the underreported provisions in the Democrats' multitrillion-dollar reconciliation package: An attempt to grant amnesty to up to 10 million illegal immigrants. About 1.3 million migrants have been taken into custody at the border since President Biden took office, McCarthy noted at the top of his Capitol Hill briefing. ... ,,,Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio shared a few more numbers, saying about 208,000 migrants were apprehended in August.

    Washington Examiner ^ | 29 September 2021 | Emily Brooks, Political Reporter
    The Senate parliamentarian said Wednesday that Democrats’ Plan B to include amnesty for illegal immigrants could not be included in their sweeping social spending budget reconciliation bill. Democrats had sought to adjust the “green card through registry” date — most recently set at Jan. 1, 1972, during the Reagan administration in 1986 — to 2010, granting a pathway to legal permanent residency to illegal immigrants who can show they came to the United States before 2010.... ....“The policy changes of this proposal far outweigh the budgetary impact scored to it and it is not appropriate for inclusion in reconciliation,” she...

Pramila Jayapal reportedly “broke into tears” at a meeting in the Oval Office as she argued for an amnesty package for illegal aliens.

    For all of you who, like me, might have been briefly fooled into thinking that Joe Biden was starting to take illegal immigration a bit more seriously during the showdown at Del Rio, this week brings us yet another indication that nothing has changed. The Free Beacon reports that Immigration and Customs Enforcement has just announced the hiring of a new Principal Legal Adviser. The PLA oversees more than two dozen field locations and more than 1,200 attorneys. They are also the agency’s chief representative in all litigation and removal proceedings for illegal aliens. It’s a very important role. So...

    Senate Majority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Monday amnesty and migrants are needed to prevent labor shortages. Schumer made his claim as many employers say they must raise wages for Americans in a national labor shortage. Since early 2020, many Americans quit their jobs in low-wage sectors, such as bars, restaurants, retail stores and for home-healthcare contractors. That resulting labor shortage has boosted wages for millions of blue-collar Americans.

    Leftists erupted with outrage on Twitter Sunday after news broke that the Senate parliamentarian said the reconciliation bill will not include a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants, including DREAMers, torpedoing President Joe Biden’s domestic agenda. As the Associated Press noted, the Senate parliamentarian said, “Democrats can’t use their $3.5 trillion package bolstering social and climate programs to give millions of immigrants a chance to become citizens, a crushing blow to what was the party’s clearest pathway in years to attaining that long-sought goal.” “The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate’s nonpartisan interpreter of its often enigmatic rules, is a...

    Democrats cannot use their $3.5 trillion spending bill to give millions of immigrants a pathway to citizenship, the Senate´s parliamentarian ruled late Sunday in a crushing blow to the party's agenda. The decision by Elizabeth MacDonough, the Senate´s nonpartisan interpreter of its rules, is a potentially damaging setback for President Joe Biden, congressional Democrats and their allies in the pro-immigration and progressive communities. It badly damages Democrats´ hopes of unilaterally enacting - over Republican opposition - changes letting several categories of immigrants gain permanent residence ...
  • Senate Parliamentarian Blocks Democrats From Ramming Through Amnesty for 8 Million Illegals in Budget Reconciliation Bill

    The parliamentarian of the US Senate has issued a ruling declaring that an amnesty provision for millions of illegal aliens can’t be passed through the use of budget reconciliation, a legislative move allowing the Senate to pass laws with only 50 votes as opposed to 60. Politico reported on Sunday that parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough ruled that the amnesty provision is not a budget-related matter, and thus cannot be included in legislation passable through use of budget reconciliation. The Democrat amnesty provision would’ve granted a quick path to citizenship for as many as eight million illegal immigrants broadly designated as “essential...

    Regarding immigration, there’s a lot going on now, including the ongoing Biden Border Surge and the Afghan Resettlement Plan. But don’t take your eyes off Congress. Something being cooked up there would make the current situation even worse – much worse. It’s a proposed amnesty for illegal aliens, to grant them legal status. It's attached to the gigantic 3.5 trillion dollar budget reconciliation bill. Sneaky, huh?

    The Democrats’ amnesty bill quietly invites three million chain-migration arrivals into the U.S. workforce, likely forcing Americans to pay higher rents. The chain-migration arrivals will go to where [their migrant relatives] are concentrated, and many are already living in a high-cost-of-living area — Prince William County, and Prince George’s County in Maryland, for example. “There clearly will be a very large demand for housing, and particularly for low-income housing which we already have a massive shortage of,” said Rosemary Jenks, the director of government relations at NumbersUSA. “So yeah, this is going to exacerbate every social problem that we have.”...
  • Biden's 'Budget' Bill Contains Massive Amnesty

    President Biden's radical/woke/leftist dream of a "budget" bill contains a lot of liberal nonsense at a cost of more than three trillion dollars. Among the most consequential provisions within it are major changes to the immigration system in the United States. And because of the reconciliation process being used by Democrat leadership in Congress, most of these provisions will receive little, if any, debate by legislators. Including mass amnesty for millions of illegal aliens — what the Biden budget refers to as "human infrastructure" — the package to be passed via reconciliation also does more than simply "reform" America's immigration...

    House Democrats are opening their amnesty plan, which they hope to slip into a broad infrastructure package via the filibuster-proof reconciliation process, to illegal alien gang members and registered sex offenders. On Monday, during a mark-up hearing for the Democrats’ budget reconciliation, Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee voted against amendments that would prevent illegal alien gang members, convicted sex offenders, convicted drunk drivers, and those convicted of firearm or explosive offenses from securing a green card, and eventually naturalized American citizenship, as part of the amnesty plan. Those Democrats include: Reps. Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Madeleine Dean (D-PA), Zoe Lofgren...
