Once again “We The People” can see the corrupt influence of lobbyists on Capitol Hill.
The House and Senate Democrats, along with corporate special interest allies, are hoping to pass an amnesty bill during the current lame-duck Congress. The challenge for them is they would need at least 10 Republicans to join them in order to get to the filibuster-proof number of 60 votes.
Before the GOP takes back control of the US House at noon on January 3, 2023, four Senate Republicans have reportedly started talks with illegal aliens enrolled in and eligible for the unconstitutional Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The four Republicans have received tens of thousands of dollars in donations from corporate political action committees (PACs) representing multinational corporations, tech conglomerates, and big banks that lobby nearly annually for amnesty.
If they are unsuccessful in ramming an amnesty bill down the throat of 360 million American citizens before the end of the year, they will not be able to try again for at least another 2-plus years. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), who many expect will be the next Speaker in the new Congress, has repeatedly said that he will not support any plans extending amnesty to illegal aliens.
The Democratic leadership just brought in DACA illegal aliens and open borders activists to Washington, DC, hoping they could help pressure the Republicans to pass an amnesty bill that would secure green cards and establish a pathway to citizenship for millions of adults who originally entered the country illegally as children.
According to Politico, Sens. John Cornyn (R-TX), Mike Lee (R-UT), Mike Rounds (R-SD), and Pat Toomey (R-PA) held meetings with DACA illegal aliens to discuss potential amnesty plans.
Around 300 DACA recipients, Dreamers and immigrant advocates are descending on Washington this week to kick off their lame-duck push for action on immigration. They’re flying in from all over the country — New York, Texas, Nevada, California, Florida, you name it. [Emphasis added]
Immigrant advocacy groups are calling the campaign the “Week of Action,” in which hundreds of meetings will take place with lobbyists, business and faith leaders, White House officials and lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. To name a few, groups have scored meetings with key Democrats like Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, Sens. Dick Durbin of Illinois, Bob Menendez of New Jersey, Alex Padilla of California and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, but they’re also starting talks with Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas, Mike Rounds of South Dakota, Mike Lee of Utah and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania. [Emphasis added]
The corporate special interests insist they need a constant stream of foreign workers who will accept much less compensation than the millions of Americans looking for employment that pays a livable wage.
During a press conference this week Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) urged ten Senate Republicans to join Senate Democrats in passing the DREAM Act which would give amnesty to at least 3.3 million DACA illegal aliens.
Schumer, though, revealed the “ultimate goal” for Democrats is an amnesty for all 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens living across the U.S. — paid for by American taxpayers.
“We have a population that is not reproducing on its own at the same level that it used to,” Schumer said. “The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers, and all of them.”
According to the Center for Immigration Studies, the average number of family members brought to the U.S. by newly naturalized Mexican immigrants stands at roughly 4. Therefore, should all 1.65 million amnestied illegal aliens bring 4 relatives each to the U.S., that would constitute a total chain migration of 6.6 million additional new foreign nationals entering the U.S.
If the number of amnestied illegal aliens who gain a pathway to citizenship under an immigration deal were to rise to the full 3.3 million who would be eligible for DREAM Act amnesty, and if each the number would skyrocket to 13.2 foreign nationals coming to the U.S.
When combined with an already estimated 25-plus million illegal aliens residing inside our borders, amnesty would be disastrous economically, and culturally and would make a public mockery of immigration laws in the United States of America.
