Biden Vows Citizenship for All Illegal Aliens in Country on January 1
Biden’s plan would eliminate a barrier to the inflow of white-collar workers
Joe Biden's amnesty plan will grant U.S. citizenship to all illegal aliens who are able to prove they were in the United States illegally on January 1.
A description provided “by transition officials” to the Washington Post said:
“To qualify, immigrants must have been in the United States as of Jan. 1, a move meant to blunt any rush to the border."
The current “rush to the border” is likely because migrants and human smugglers can backdate documents and forge new identities.
“Biden, he’s going to help all of us,” one English-speaking Honduran told CNN.
“He’s given us 100 days to get to the U.S. and give us legal [unintelligible] paper so we can get a better life for our kids and family.”
According to a government-sponsored study, the 1986 amnesty of roughly three million illegal aliens saw evidence of fraud and a rejection rate of only around 12 percent.
The Washington Post did not estimate how many migrants would benefit from an amnesty.
The post added that Biden’s plan would eliminate a barrier to the inflow of white-collar workers who can earn a science or technology doctoral degree in colleges and universities.
Last week, Neon Nettle reported that the current migrant caravan moving toward the U.S. border has called on Biden to honor his "commitments" to the migrants about to flood the country.
On Friday, 1,000 Honduran migrants moved unregistered into Guatemala, according to The Associated Press.
A statement issued by the migrant rights group Pueblo Sin Fronteras said it expects the Biden administration to take action.
The statement said:
"We recognize the importance of the incoming Government of the United States having shown a strong commitment to migrants and asylum seekers, which presents an opportunity for the governments of Mexico and Central America to develop policies and a migration management that respect and promote the human rights of the population in mobility."
This month, Biden laid the groundwork for an amnesty for 11 to 22 million illegal aliens during a meeting with borders lobbying groups.
Biden and Kamala Harris met with cabinet nominees, open borders lobbying group executives, and sanctuary city politicians about “his day one plans to introduce immigration reform legislation and protect DACA recipients," a readout of the meeting said.
Despite the massive pressure on 18 million jobless Americans with enhanced foreign competition in the U.S. labor market, Biden is also eyeing up putting an end to President Donald Trump’s reforms at the U.S.-Mexico border.
