Republicans Drop The Hammer On $2B Funding For Illegals - An Investigation Is Coming

The pandemic has affected millions around the country, and many are still struggling to get back on their feet. This includes everyone from business owners to everyday workers.

We’ve already seen multiple stimulus payments and other forms of aid, though many Republicans argue that such assistance has gone too far. . .

Illegal Aliens to Receive 4.38 Billion in Stimulus Checks:Report

As Americans start to receive the latest round of stimulus checks, a new analysis reveals that about $4.38 billion will also go to illegal immigrants.

The Center for Immigration Studies estimates that 2.65 million illegal immigrants have Social Security numbers that allow them to receive stimulus checks. This group of illegal immigrants can be described as “aliens temporarily present without status,” according to Steven Camarota, director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies.

“These individuals are in the country illegally and could be required to leave. Yet, under the current system, they are still given work authorization and Social Security numbers,” he said. . 

House Democrats Prepare to Vote on Two Amnesty Bills

 
The U.S. House of Representatives is about to vote on two amnesty bills, all in the midst of rapidly rising border apprehensions and falling ICE arrests. Instead of addressing the self-created Biden border crisis, House Democrats plan to vote on two amnesty bills last seen in the 116th Congress – H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, and H.R. 1603, the Farm Workforce Modernization Act. Both bills would place millions of illegal aliens on a pathway to citizenship while doing nothing to fix our country’s broken immigration system. . .

The Worst Amnesty Proposal in U.S. History

GOP Establishment Rebuked for Fleeing "America First"with Amnesty Talk

Immigration reformers are slapping down suggestions by the Republican establishment on finding “common ground” with Democrats over immigration, a veiled suggestion of amnesty for illegal aliens.

While President Trump continues his election challenge to Democrat Joe Biden in numerous swing states, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is discussing what a Republican-held Senate may do if they keep the United States Senate.

One of those measures noted by Graham, Roll Call reported, is a “common ground” immigration reform, the term often used by establishment Republicans and Democrats to disguise amnesty for 11 to 22 million illegal aliens. . .https://libertysword.com/gop-establishment-rebuked-for-fleeing-america-f...

Five Ways Congress Can Solve the Border Crisis

FAIR: ‘NO BAN’ Act Endangers Public Safety, National Security

(March 11, 2020, Washington, D.C.) — The following statement was issued by Dan Stein, president of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), regarding an upcoming vote on legislation to dismantle the president’s travel ban authority at the height of the coronavirus outbreak:

 “Amidst a full-blown public health crisis driven by travel from abroad, House Democrats have demonstrated where their priorities lie: taking political shots at President Trump. This partisan hackery is both stunning and ill-advised. . .

 

 

The Impact of Legal and Illegal Immigration on the Apportionment of Seats in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2020

Under current policy all persons — not just citizens — are included in the population count when apportioning seats to states in the U.S. House of Representatives and for votes in the Electoral College, which is based on House seats. Although we focus on the next census in 2020, the impact of immigration has been building for decades as the number of people settling in the country has increased dramatically. This report examines the cumulative impact of immigration, both legal and illegal, on the apportionment of House seats; this is not an analysis of the impact of immigration only since the previous census. Apportionment is a zero-sum system; by adding more population to some states rather than others, immigration will continue to significantly redistribute political power in Washington.. .

House to Vote on a Union-Backed Bill that Rewards Illegal Immigration

Tomorrow the House will vote on a union-backed bill containing an ill-advised provision that enhances the primary motivator of illegal immigration – working in the United States. H.R. 2474, the Protecting the Right to Organize (PRO) Act upends federal labor law to reward illegal aliens while making it next to impossible for businesses to fire illegal aliens with union status. ...   

U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons: Criminal Alien Report November 2019

The United States having a significant foreign national population residing within the nations boundaries, be they legally or illegally present in the country, unfortunately includes those who commit crimes.

The extent and impact of foreign national crime on the U.S. citizens and residents of this country is clearly revealed by a simple search on the U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) inmates statistics website under the heading of inmate citizenship.

Here are the countries of origin, moreover, the number and percentage of those countries citizens recently incarcerated in the U.S. BOP prison system (Note: The most recent BOP crime numbers available were from November 30, 2019.).

Inmate Citizenship:

- Mexico 20,363 inmates, 11.6 percent;
- Colombia 1,628 inmates, 0.9 percent;
- Dominican Republic 1,434 inmates, 0.8 percent;
- Cuba 1,104 inmates, 0.6 percent;
- Other / unknown countries 9,121 inmates, 5.2 percent;
- United States 142,500 inmates, 80.9 percent;

Total Inmates: 176,150 inmates.

To explain the meaning of these preceding criminal alien inmate numbers and percentages, I will translate them into words:

Combining November 30th BOP criminal alien inmate numbers, there were 33,650 criminal aliens in the BOP prison system. Alien inmates were 19.1 percent of the federal prison population.

With 20,363 Mexican nationals being incarcerated in the BOP prison system, at 60.5 percent, they were the vast majority of criminal aliens in federal prisons.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Prisons breaks down the federal prison population into 13 types of offenses. One of the top five offenses, the reason inmates are serving time in federal prisons is for immigration crimes. There were 10,113 inmates in the BOP prison system incarcerated for immigration crimes; they were 6.2 percent of the federal prison population.
