Democrat Budget Includes $107Bn of Taxpayers Money to Grant Amnesty for Illegals
Senate Democrats unveiled the budget framework,
The Democrats' framework for a $3.5 trillion budget resolution also includes plans to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S via a filibuster-proof reconciliation process.
Senate Democrats unveiled the budget framework, including a series of instructions for Senate committees to craft specific plans.
The framework instructs the Senate Judiciary Committee to spend $107 billion of taxpayer's money on amnesty for illegal aliens.
The vague language of the framework asks Judiciary Committee members to give “lawful permanent status for qualified immigrants.”
But those who would qualify for an amnesty are not clear.
The massive figure for the taxpayer-funded amnesty plan is slightly lower than Senate Budget Committee chairman Bernie Sanders’ (I-VT) amnesty plan, projected to cost $150 billion.
The plan crafted by Democrats is expected to give green cards leading to naturalized American citizenship, millions of illegal aliens eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), those working on U.S. farms, those considered “essential” workers, and those with Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
Democrats hit a roadblock last month when Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) announced she would oppose their $3.5 trillion budget.
Senate Democrats did not have the 50 votes necessary to pass the budget via reconciliation because of this.
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) told donors it would only be possible for amnesty if Senate Democrats pushes it through the reconciliation process.
“If we don’t have reconciliation, I’m not sure that there’s a pathway forward,” Menendez said.
Last month, House Republicans urged Joe Biden to oppose any such amnesty proposal Senate Democrats set forth.
The House Republicans said the amnesty plan is “a partisan power grab” designed “to expand [Democrats’] ranks of voters by millions.”
“Rejecting calls to inject amnesty into reconciliation would be a meaningful sign that you are finally willing to find common ground with your political opponents,” they wrote.
“We implore you to put substance behind your calls for unity and to start by rejecting calls to inject amnesty into reconciliation.”
A small amount of House Democrats said they wouldn't support a budget without the inclusion of amnesty for illegal aliens.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us also backs the amnesty.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce claimed that legalizing millions of foreign competitors against American workers is “vital” to the American economic recovery after the pandemic.
But almost 16 million Americans remain jobless, and a further 4.6 million Americans are underemployed but want a full-time job.
Current immigration levels are also crushing U.S. wages while redistributing about $500 billion away from America’s working and middle class, research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine has found.
Earlier this year, Former President George W. Bush lobbied Republicans to help Biden on amnesty for illegal aliens.
Bush said Biden should provide amnesty for illegal aliens, or at least those eligible for former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
During an interview with the Dispatch Podcast, Bush said:
“I think piecemeal probably makes sense, and I think the president if I could be so bold, is calling Republicans like-minded and saying ‘Let’s see if we can get something done.'”
