Biden Vows Amnesty for at Least '11 Million' Illegal Aliens 'in First 100 Days'
Democrat nominee reveals immigration plan if he wins election
Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden has vowed to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens living in America "in the first 100 days," if he wins the election.
Biden says he would make it a priority to send an amnesty deal to the Senate for “over 11 million” immigrants who have entered the United States illegally.
The former vice president made the pledge during a softball interview with NBC News’s Lester Holt.
Biden reiterated his plan to give amnesty to the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S.

"Some of it’s going to depend on the kind of cooperation I can or cannot get from the United States Congress," Biden said of his agenda.
"But I am going, I made a commitment, in the first 100 days," Biden promised.
"I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America."
Currently, about 24.5 million Americans are either jobless or underemployed, but all want full-time jobs.
Those unemployed are forced to compete in the labor market by an endless stream of foreign workers who secure visas and green cards that rack up to more than 2.5 million admissions every year.
These legal immigration admissions are in addition to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens who successfully cross U.S. borders and overstay their visas every year.
Exit polling after the election reveals that voters across party and racial lines overwhelmingly want less overall immigration to the U.S.
More than 3-in-4 voters, for instance, said it is important to reduce immigration with continued high unemployment, and more than 62 percent said, even after unemployment has leveled off, immigration should remain lower than its current levels.
