On immigration alone, Vanita Gupta will be a disaster in the Justice Department

As the Biden administration hits its 100-day milestone, it has become clear that one of the following statements must be true. Either Joseph Robinette Biden blatantly lied to voters last fall when he portrayed himself as a common sense moderate, or Biden’s role in his own administration is little more than a hood ornament while fringe elements of his staff and party wield the actual power. Whichever one is true, the end result may be the most left-wing presidency in American history, particularly on the issue of immigration. This can only lead to extremely bad outcomes for the country. . .

Democrats Ram through Immigration Bills as Border Crisis Worsens

On April 21, House Democrats passed two immigration bills that do nothing to address the out-of-control situation at our southwest border. Even worse, these two bills may actually lead to a worsening of the crisis by burdening U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), exacerbating already significant threats to national security, and overwhelming our immigration courts. . .

Traitorous Senate Republicans (Including John Cornyn!) Entertain Amnesty Talks

At least five Republican senators are open to a modified version of Joe Biden’s Amnesty. Axios reported Wednesday that a “bipartisan” group met to discuss “comprehensive immigration reform.” The four Republicans who attended the meeting were: John Cornyn of Texas, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Susan Collins of Maine, and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina. Mike Rounds of South Dakota called in [Bipartisan Senate group seeks immigration deals, by Alayna Treene, Axios, April 21, 2021].

Murkowski, Collins, and Graham are no surprise; they all voted for Amnesty in 2013. What is notable is Cornyn’s attendance. He is one of the most powerful Republicans in the Senate and he previously opposed Amnesty. But, as VDARE.com has previously reported, he has recently flipped and now wants to work with the Democrats to reward illegal aliens. . .

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. . .

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.. .
