WASHINGTON, DC- Well, they sure aren’t wasting any time. According to Breitbart, Democrats in the House haven’t even waited for the election results to be certified amidst numerous lawsuits filed by the Trump campaign and they’re already drafting legislation to give between 11 and 22 million illegal aliens amnesty.
Biden has said repeatedly he was in favor of such a move. Think the Senate races in Georgia aren’t important now?
Politico reported that Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA) is leading the charge on such a plan which would be filed as soon as Biden theoretically takes office.
“Still, Democrats say they’re determined to put forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill that Biden can sign off on. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) is drafting a bill that Democrats hope to drop right as Biden enters the White House.”
The radicals aren’t even running the show yet and they’re already showing what their priorities are. Not trying to pass a reasonable COVID-19 relief bill but trying to add more voters to their rolls.
Politico said the “open borders lobby” is pushing Biden to follow through not only on amnesty, but also to put a stop to all deportations for 100 days, as well as to end President Trump’s ban on immigration from terrorist-sanctioned countries.
The ban, which was found to be constitutional, has been an effective tool in preventing the import of terrorism.
“Tapping Mayorkas, former deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security under Obama is a “conversation starter,” Franco said. But she and other immigrant advocates say staffing is just one piece of it.
They want the former vice president to impose a 100-day moratorium on deportations, rescind many of Trump’s more than 400 executive orders on immigration (like the so-called Muslim ban) and lay the ground work for tougher goals like a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants—all promises he made on the campaign trail.
Privately, multiple Hispanic caucus members said a large number of Democrats would be “severely disappointed” if Biden didn’t push immigration reform early. ‘That’s not going to sit well with a lot of folks,’ said one lawmaker in the caucus.”
Biden told NBC Nightly News on Wednesday that he did indeed plan to send an amnesty plan to the United States Senate for “over 11 million” illegal aliens in the first 100 days.
“I made a commitment, in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” he told the network.
In an act of pure “genius,” such a move would as over 24.5 million Americans are currently jobless or underemployed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Such an amnesty program would immediately thrust millions of newly legalized Americans into the job market to compete for jobs with those Americans. But hey, this is what tens of millions of Americans voted for. Good move.
In a typical year, the U.S. already awards around 1.2 legal immigrants green cards, while another 1.4 million foreigners are given visas to come to the United States. These numbers are in addition to the hundreds of thousands of illegals who jump the border annually, as well as those who cross the border and then overstay their visas.
The move by Democrats comes even though exit polling after the election showed that voters across all demographics and voter affiliation want less overall immigration into the U.S. Which begs the question…Biden has repeatedly said he’s willing to open the borders to a flood of new illegal aliens, yet tens of millions voted for him?
For example, over 75 percent of voters said it was important to reduce immigration in the midst of continued high unemployment, with more than 62 percent saying that even after unemployment has leveled off, immigration should reman lower than current levels.
Well played, voters.

NEW YORK CITY, NY – It is estimated that there are over 1.2 million illegal aliens living in the five boroughs of New York City. Democratic legislators supporting an illegal alien advocacy group called Make The Road NY want to raise $5.5 billion from New York millionaires in order to pay each illegal immigrant $750 per week.
The Coronavirus pandemic has “impoverished” many illegal aliens because of places they generally work being shuttered or using restricted manpower and hours, such as restaurants, bars, assembly plants, and service shops, and performing housecleaning duties at residences and hotels.
The New York Times gave the legislation concept a written and digital boost a few days ago, and showcased several illegal immigrants working as street vendors:
“On one corner, Cristina Sanchez stood forlornly at a produce stand. She had not sold a single thing. During the pandemic she had lost her job, and then her rented room, triggering a frantic hustle to survive: First, she sold produce, then tacos, then produce again …
‘This has affected my children [in Mexico] a lot,’ Cristina said, as she started to cry. ‘I try to tell them that because there’s no steady work, whatever I make is only enough for me to survive for the day.’”
Their article further showcased a man named Gerardo, who has been in the country (and city) illegally since 2006:
“He decided to sell tacos de alambre — made with steak, chiles, bacon, and cheese — on the street. The owner of a local deli let him use an enclosed sidewalk stand at night, free of charge. During the day, it sells smoothies.
“Gerardo’s sales have not been brisk. His tacos cost two for $5. He needs to sell at least 130 each day, a target he often misses by half.”
Many excluded workers have become street vendors in the past few months as a new source of income.

The New York Times explained a survey taken by members of the Make The Road NY group, pertaining to illegals during the COVID-19 pandemic:
“92% of respondents reported that either they or another earner in their household has lost their job or income as a result of the crisis.”
The newspaper also stated that 84% of the respondent were unemployed, and 88% of those said the pandemic caused the job loss. However, only 5% received jobless benefits last month.
The New York Times continued:
“90% of household cleaners had lost their jobs. Those that were working had fewer clients than usual and had lost income.
“28 percent of renters in New York pay more than 50 percent of their wages on housing in the city’s migrant-crowded neighborhoods.”
Mass immigration shifts investment, jobs & wealth from the central states to the coastal states.
NY shows how Trump partly reversed the wealth transfer by curbing migration.
Yet GOP pols keep voting for immigration that makes their states poorer. #H1B https://t.co/NsKy7qY76V

Breitbart News reported:
“The leaders in New York City choose to build their service and real-estate economies on cheap imported labor, so denying wages, jobs, and home to the many Americans who did live, or want to live, in the city.
“Now the coronavirus crash is threatening the city’s economy by pushing out impoverished migrants, and their departure is pressuring employers to raise wages high enough to attract Americans to jobs in New York.”
There is strong criticism with this notion and plan, especially from city union workers who say they have lost their jobs to illegals. One union member responded to a message from Donald Trump, Jr:
“I see it first-hand as union member… In NYC union trades, we work for millionaires. Only about 15% comes from city contracts. Also, Dems and the sanctuary city illegals take our jobs on non-union job sites during Obama. In NYC, non-union work grew by over 70%. Union trades need Trump.”
