    Democrat Budget Includes $107 Billion Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

    Democrat Budget Includes $107 Billion Amnesty for Illegal Aliens

    by JOHN BINDER 9 Aug 2021

    The framework for a $3.5 trillion Democrat budget resolution includes plans to provide amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in the United States via the filibuster-proof reconciliation process.

    On Monday, Senate Democrats unveiled the budget framework, which includes a series of instructions for various Senate committees to craft specific plans. As such, the framework instructs the Senate Judiciary Committee to spend $107 billion in American taxpayer money on amnesty for illegal aliens.

    The language of the framework is vague, asking the Judiciary Committee members to give “lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants.” Those who would qualify for such an amnesty remain unclear.

    The cost of the amnesty to taxpayers is just slightly lower than Senate Budget Committee chairman Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) amnesty plan, which was projected to cost $150 billion.

    Any amnesty plan crafted by Democrats is expected to give green cards, which lead to naturalized American citizenship, millions of illegal aliens eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS), those working on U.S. farms, and those considered “essential” workers.

    Democrats’ amnesty via the reconciliation plan hit a serious roadblock last month when Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) announced she will oppose their $3.5 trillion budget. With Sinema’s opposition, Senate Democrats do not have the 50 votes necessary to pass the budget via reconciliation with Vice President Kamala Harris breaking a tie with Republican opposition.

    Most recently, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) told donors amnesty would only be possible if Senate Democrats shove it through the reconciliation process.

    “If we don’t have reconciliation, I’m not sure that there’s a pathway forward,” Menendez said.

    In July, a group of House Republicans urged President Biden to oppose any such amnesty proposal Senate Democrats set forth. Biden previously endorsed plans to give amnesty to illegal aliens.

    The amnesty plan, the House Republicans wrote, is “a partisan power grab” designed “to expand [Democrats’] ranks of voters by millions.”

    “Rejecting calls to inject amnesty into reconciliation would be a meaningful sign that you are finally willing to find common ground with your political opponents,” they wrote. “We implore you to put substance behind your calls for unity and to start by rejecting calls to inject amnesty into reconciliation.”

    A handful of House Democrats, though, have said they will not support a budget without the inclusion of amnesty for illegal aliens.

    The amnesty has major backing from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s, former President George W. Bush, and the Koch brothers.

    Likewise, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce had most recently held a conference dedicated to promoting the amnesty plan, claiming that legalizing millions of foreign competitors against American workers is “vital” to the U.S. economic recovery following the Chinese coronavirus crisis.

    Nationally, nearly 16 million Americans remain jobless, but all want full-time employment. Another 4.6 million Americans are underemployed but want a full-time job.

    Already, current immigration levels put downward pressure on U.S. wages while redistributing about $500 billion in wealth away from America’s working and middle class, toward employers and new arrivals, research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine has found.

    The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has repeatedly found that amnesty for illegal aliens would be a net fiscal drain for American taxpayers while driving down U.S. wages.

    Every year, 1.2 million legal immigrants receive 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.

    Dem Budget Includes Green Card Giveaway, Mass Amnesty

    The new budget proposal from Senate Democrats will dramatically increase the number of available green cards and include amnesty for illegal immigrants, according to an official fact sheet on the $3.5 trillion budget circulated by leadership.

    The summary of the proposed budget, which was overseen by Senate Budget Committee chairman Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), says the budget will provide "green cards to millions of immigrant workers and families." Current law caps the total number of green cards, known officially as permanent resident cards, at just under 1.1 million annually. The budget will additionally offer illegal immigrants in the United States a "pathway to citizenship," Sanders wrote on Monday morning. There are an estimated 10 to 12 million undocumented aliens in the country.

    It is unclear how many green cards Democrats aim to make newly available through the legislation, which was released Monday morning. The immigration provisions in the Democratic budget appear to be inspired in part by Biden's campaign promise to make green cards available to family members of other green card recipients, regardless of annual caps. Biden's campaign website promised to "[support] legislation that treats the spouse and children of green card holders as the immediate relatives they are, exempting them from caps."

    Democrats face bipartisan scrutiny over the border crisis, with the number of migrants attempting to enter the country through Mexico at a 21-year high. The $3.5 trillion budget has not yet earned support from moderate Democratic senators like Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), although she has said she'll vote "yes" on procedural motions. Democratic leaders say they hope to pass the bill through budget reconciliation, which would allow them to avoid a filibuster from Republicans. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) referred to the budget as "reckless," and it is not expected to receive any Republican support.

    Sanders said the budget proposal is "the most consequential piece of legislation for working people, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor since FDR and the New Deal of the 1930s."

    The Biden administration has repeatedly told migrants not to attempt to enter the country at this time, citing the pandemic and strained resources. Critics say Biden's decision to eliminate Trump-era policies like "Remain in Mexico" is in large part the source of the migration surge.

    The budget also "funds smart technology for safe and efficient borders for trade, travel, and migration," although specifics have yet to be released. Various NGOs and consulting firms, such as Deloitte, have recommended "smart" refugee resettlement technology that includes using data analysis to quickly process and place asylum seekers in various U.S. cities.

    Sanders tweeted Monday morning that his party's budget "will bring undocumented people out of the shadows and provide them with a pathway to citizenship, including those who courageously kept our economy running in the middle of the deadly pandemic," but offered no specifics.

    The budget proposal will include many liberal policy proposals that were left out of the bipartisan infrastructure proposal, which is expected to pass through the Senate this week. Aside from dramatically expanding legal immigration, the budget includes a number of left-wing initiatives such as tuition-free community college, hiking the corporate and personal tax rate, and expanding ObamaCare.
