    President Joe Biden’s pro-migration amnesty bill cannot pass Congress unless business leaders actively pressure and police both politicians and media outlets, says Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ), who is leading the Senate push. “Let me close by saying to my friends in the business community: We need you to give it everything that you’ve got,” Menendez told amnesty advocates Thursday, January 21. He continued:

    House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy told Breitbart News exclusively on Wednesday morning that Democrat President-elect Joe Biden should drop his push to grant amnesty to every illegal alien in America and instead focus his incoming administration on getting Americans back to work with millions still reeling from the coronavirus pandemic. Biden, who will be sworn in as president on Wednesday at noon, is intending to roll out an amnesty plan on his first day and press Congress to grant the prize of American citizenship to the tens of millions of illegal aliens present in the country.

    U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has given a thumbs-down to President-elect Joseph Biden’s draft amnesty, saying that “everyone” must first have a chance to get a good job in a post-coronavirus economy. “Before we deal with immigration, we need to deal with COVID, make sure everyone has the chance to find a good job, and confront the threat from China,” Rubio said.

    The action comes under the Deferred Enforced Departure program that offers deportation protections and work permits to immigrants in the country without authorization As one of his final acts in office, President Trump has authorized a program to give work permits and deportation protections to Venezuelan immigrants in the U.S. without legal permission, an action President-elect Joe Biden had promised to take during the 2020 campaign. The designation formally known as Deferred Enforced Departure offers legal protections to any Venezuelan national present in the U.S. as of Jan. 20, 2021, for 18 months. That is likely to benefit at least...

    In one of his final acts as majority leader, Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is pressuring Democrats to keep the filibuster — the procedural tool that liberals and progressives are eager to to do away with so President-elect Joe Biden’s legislative priorities can be approved more easily over GOP opposition. McConnell has told Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer that retaining the legislative filibuster is important and should be part of their negotiations for a power-sharing agreement in the narrowly divided Senate. Schumer and McConnell met Tuesday to begin hammering out the details of organizing the chamber, which will be split...

    When Barack Obama was in office, he pushed back against amnesty. He sought other dangerous methods to decriminalize illegal immigration, including DACA, but amnesty was a bit too much of a stretch for him even when his party was in control of the House and Senate.Those who think Joe Biden represents a continuation of Obama’s policies are in for a shock immediately after he’s inaugurated. And while many still cling to the idea that a miracle may happen, most Americans are expecting him to start issuing executive orders and pushing Capitol Hill for legislation on January 21st. His plan for...

    WASHINGTON - President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration, hoping to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies. It provides one of the fastest pathways to citizenship for those living without legal status of any measure in recent years, but it fails to include the traditional trade-off of enhanced border security favored by many Republicans, putting passage in a narrowly divided Congress in doubt. Expected to run hundreds of...

    President-elect Joe Biden’s amnesty plan will reportedly provide the glittering prize of U.S. citizenship to everyone who can show they were in the United States illegally on January 1, if Congress passes the wage-cutting, nation-changing legislation amid a deep economic recession. “To qualify, immigrants must have been in the United States as of Jan. 1, a move meant to blunt any rush to the border,” according to a description provided “by transition officials” to the Washington Post. But the “rush to the border” is likely because migrants and the coyotes’ smuggling industry can backdate documents and forge new identities, especially...

    Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AK) is warning House and Senate Republicans not to be “fooled” by President-elect Joe Biden’s upcoming amnesty plan for the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, which he says will provide lip service to federal immigration enforcement. Last week, open borders activists suggested that Biden’s upcoming amnesty plan is the “most aggressive agenda” they have seen in years. The plan is expected to provide amnesty to nearly all illegal aliens living in the U.S. and potentially expand legal immigration, a staple of the corporate lobby’s outsourcing goals.

    Assuming nobody shows up to burn down Capitol Hill on Wednesday (still a big assumption, I know), Joe Biden’s team, leading with Ron Klain, is trumpeting a “blitz” of executive orders that the incoming president plans to sign on the day of his inauguration, with many more to come over the course of the first ten days. Many of these plans went almost unmentioned during Joe’s basement campaign, while others received a bit of air time, but are going much further than what he mentioned on the campaign trail. Should we be taking the time to point out that Biden...

    This past August, on the second night of the virtual RNC, it was inspiring to see the secretary of Homeland Security swear in five new American citizens and each new citizen then recognized by President Trump. The process of obtaining American citizenship was educational. Nevertheless, the Democrats under Joe Biden seek to enable everybody who crosses our borders to do so easily, without penalty, and to quickly be given an array of benefits.Serving Citizens Comes FirstIt’s admirable when legal immigrants from other cultures influence the existing U.S. citizenry in positive ways. Concurrently, the "nation of immigrants" or "xenophobia" arguments used...

    SAN DIEGO - President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to immediately ask Congress to offer legal status to an estimated 11 million people in the country has surprised advocates given how the issue has long divided Democrats and Republicans, even within their own parties. Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans. Biden’s plan is the polar opposite of Donald Trump, whose successful 2016 presidential campaign rested in part on curbing or stopping illegal immigration. “This really does...

    President-elect Joe Biden intends to waste no time with regard to offering a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants inside the country, and Democrats are formulating a plan to put it into action, according to a report. The plan, which has not been made public, has been described as so “bold” by Politico, that even the most passionate immigration reform advocates are said to be “stunned” after getting an early look at it. “On Thursday, Biden, Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, policy advisers and three Latino Cabinet nominees met with advocates to outline the president-elect’s immigration, coronavirus and economic...

    President-elect Joe Biden is laying the groundwork for an amnesty for 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, meeting with open borders lobbying groups and sanctuary city politicians to discuss a legislative strategy. On Thursday, Biden and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris met with a handful of cabinet nominees, executives with open borders lobbying groups, and sanctuary city politicians about “his day one plans to introduce immigration reform legislation and protect DACA recipients,” according to a readout of the meeting.

    MARIETTA, Georgia — Georgia Democrat Senate candidate Jon Ossoff vowed amnesty for all illegal aliens “who otherwise follow the law,” if he is elected, in response to a question about immigration during a campaign event Wednesday. A self-described Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipient from Mexico, who was part of a small crowd gathered in front of Super Mercado La Villa for a “Latinx Meet & Greet” event Wednesday morning, asked Ossoff what he thought about immigration law for Latinos. Ossoff said, “I will stand with you and all Dreamers, all DACA recipients, because Dreamers are every bit as...

    After two decades and multiple efforts to include a National Museum of the American Latino in the Smithsonian Institution, Congress finally voted to build the museum honoring the contributions of Latinos to the United States. Congress voted late Monday night on the $2.3 trillion omnibus spending package — which includes the bill to build a Latino museum as well as a separate bill to build a national women’s history museum as part of the Smithsonian Institution. The bill to build a National Museum of the American Latino was introduced by Texas Sen. John Cornyn, a Republican, and New Jersey Sen....

    Former Republican foreign-policy hawk and Never Trump die-hard Bill Kristol told Politico he wants to help Democrats win a Capitol Hill battle over immigration. “Never-Trump Republicans are a small but potentially important part of the overall Biden governing coalition,” Kristol said. If Biden tries to pass an immigration bill, they could help by touting provisions popular with Republicans and moderates. “It could be ads. It could be private meetings. It could be talking to business leaders or to … members of Congress,” he said. “Never-Trumpers can help the Biden administration govern successfully.” Biden has announced he wants an amnesty for...

    Donald Trump famously sought the presidency in 2016 on a platform that elevated the immigration issue to the singular political forefront. He was right to do so. There is a very strong case that immigration, both legal and illegal, represents the indispensable issue facing the United States. No other political issue so broadly affects virtually every other -- whether it is economics, national security, foreign policy, culture and religion, crime and law and order, or congressional apportionment -- as that most foundational issue of any legitimate self-governing politics: who we quite literally are, as a polity and a citizenry. For...
