Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkals touted amnesty for illegals during VP Harris’s visit to the Southern border.
In El Paso Texas, Mayorkas said he was “hopeful” that an amnesty for illegal aliens would be approved by Congress while standing next to Harris at a press conference.
“I am hopeful that Congress will pass immigration reform to fix a system that everyone recognizes is broke and I am thankful for [Sen. Dick Durbin’s] years-long effort and championing this effort,” Mayorkas said.
Under Biden’s direction, Myorkas suggested his role is “to build safe and legal pathways for people” for their indefinite stay in the U.S. — a stark contrast to former President Trump’s DHS, seeking to stem illegal immigration and drug trafficking.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) is crafting amnesty legislation to send to Senate Democrats for negotiating.
In March, the Democrat-controlled House — with support from 30 House Republicans — passed H.R. 1603, known as the “Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2021,” and H.R. 6, known as “American Dream and Promise Act of 2021.”
The two plans together would allow amnesty to 2.1 million illegals working on U.S. farms in addition to 4.4 million DACA enrolled aliens with TPS.
Senate Democrats are trying to slip amnesty past Congress through a “reconciliation” maneuver. Senate Budget Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is working on a proposal that includes forcing American taxpayers to spend $150 billion on providing amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.
Amnesty shadows the 16 million unemployed Americans seeking full-time jobs. Never mind the 5.3 million Americans who are underemployed seeking full-time employment.
An analysis released this week by the Center for Immigration Studies revealed that amnesty for illegal aliens, which would immediately flood the U.S. labor market with millions of newly legalized foreign workers for whom employers can legally hire, would have a devastating impact on the nation’s ongoing unemployment problem.
Every year, 1.2 million legal immigrants are given green cards to permanently resettle in the U.S. In addition, 1.4 million foreign nationals are given visas to take American jobs while hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens enter the U.S. annually.
