    House Appropriations Committee Allows DACA Amnesty Recipients to Compete with America

    House Appropriations Committee Allows DACA Amnesty Recipients to Compete with Americans for Federal Jobs



    PUBLISHED:

    Fri, JUL 14th 2017 @ 12:48 pm EDT

    The House Appropriations Committee approved an amendment late Thursday night that would allow illegal aliens who receive the unconstitutional DACA executive amnesty to compete with American workers for jobs with the federal government. The amendment, offered by Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.), was part of the FY18 Financial Services and General Government spending bill and was passed by a voice vote.

    Financial Services Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman Tom Graves (R-Ga.) and House Appropriations Committee Chairman Randy Frelinghuysen (R-N.J.) allowed the voice vote to take place. Chairman Frelinghuysen denied a call for a recorded vote, a move that many Republicans criticized.

    According to the federal government job bank website, USAJobs.gov, generally only U.S. citizens or nationals are qualified for federal government jobs but the approval by the Appropriations Committee would allow an exception for DACA amnesty recipients. The amendment would also allow DACA amnesty recipients to work for Members of Congress on Capitol Hill.

    According to a recent USCIS report 787,580 illegal aliens have received DACA approval since the program was created in 2012. Over 100,000 DACA applications were approved in just the first three months of 2017.

    Despite his campaign promise to end DACA on his first day in office, Pres. Trump has not taken any action on the DACA program. He specifically excluded DACA from his January executive order, which ordered a review of all the Obama-era immigration orders.

    This approval comes as a coalition of 10 states that challenged DAPA are threatening to extend their lawsuit to include DACA if the Trump administration does not begin to phase out the program by September 5th. DHS Secretary John Kelly has said that according to their lawyers DACA would probably not survive the lawsuit.

    Roy Beck, President of NumbersUSA, released this statement on the amendment, "Taxpayers will be outraged to learn that the House Appropriations Committee has voted to use their tax dollars to pay the salaries of illegal aliens who the committee decided should be able to compete with Americans for federal jobs. With the work-force participation rate for American millennials remaining abysmally low, the chance of landing a job with the government would be made still more difficult by the Republican-led committee's decision to make them compete with the some 800,000 young-adult recipients of the unconstitutional executive DACA amnesty. So much for Republican promises of making decisions that put American workers first.”

    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    This is ridiculous. The vote should have been a recorded vote. The American people and these folks constituents have the right to know when their representatives are acting against their best interest!
