URGENT ACTION ALERT
$$ One Trillion Mass Amnesty and Explosion of Legal Immigration in Reconciliation Bill
The Democrat controlled House has recently approved giving an Amnesty and path to Citizenship and voting rights to 8 Million of the 36 Million Illegals in the USA as one of the $5 Trillion "Reconciliation" Bill Giveaways.
These 8 Million include the Dreamers and so-called Essential Workers. There are no effective provisions to weed out Criminals or the Covid Infected.
If the Democrats can get all 50 of their Senators to support this "Reconciliation" Bill , this Catastrophic Amnesty will become law.
An excellent analysis of the costs of this Amnesty is provided by the Center for Immigration Studies from which we quote excerpts below:
"The Reconciliation Bill’s Amnesty Carries a Price Tag of $1Trillion
The amnesty for 8 million illegal immigrants contained within the budget reconciliation bill would generate a total cost to Social Security and Medicare Part A of roughly $1 trillion in present value. Under current law, illegal immigrants are net contributors to Social Security and Medicare because they partially pay in to entitlement programs, but most cannot legally receive benefits. By granting eligibility for benefits, however, amnesty would transform illegal immigrants from net contributors into net beneficiaries, imposing steep costs on the Social Security and Medicare trust funds.
Jason Richwine, a resident scholar at the Center for Immigration Studies, said, “Because most of the entitlement costs associated with amnesty would occur outside the typical 10-year budget window of the Congressional Budget Office, it is imperative that Congress ask the CBO to do a special analysis of long-term entitlement costs when it scores the amnesty provisions of this reconciliation bill. Otherwise, the most significant costs of the amnesty will be hidden.”
Reconciliation Bill Extends Amnesty and Eventual Citizenship to Criminals
The bill grants green cards to a large number of illegal aliens, even those who are removable on criminal grounds, even if they are inadmissible. Criminal exceptions to the amnesty are included in the bill, but then waivers negate their significance. The DHS secretary is given the ability to waive applicants’ criminal, smuggling, student-visa abuse, and unlawful voting grounds of in admissibility “for humanitarian purposes or family unity” or “if a waiver is otherwise in the public interest.” The secretary can also waive any of the criminal grounds of inadmissibility. The bill also prevents the secretary from “automatically treat[ing] an expunged conviction as a conviction”. Convictions will no longer be a bar to a green card as the bill allows convictions for offenses – regardless of how heinous or violent – to be wiped off the applicant’s record.
Andrew Arthur, the Center’s resident fellow in law and policy, said, “If House leadership wants to grant amnesty to alien criminals, they should at least have the decency to let the American people, let alone their fellow partisans and colleagues in the GOP, know what they are up to. And if they did not intend to offer a massive, unending amnesty to criminal aliens, they should have taken their time in drafting their proposal — and not be attempting to jam through haphazard language drafted hours before it was presented to committee members.”
Legal Immigration Will Explode
The reconciliation bill also substantially increases permanent, legal immigration. The bill disregards current immigration law and the congressionally set ceilings by “recapturing unused immigration visas” between fiscal years 1992 and 2021. The unused visas come back to life and nullify the per-country cap restrictions Congress implemented to encourage diversity and assimilation. Treating these visas as entitlements provides an estimated 703,455 green cards, and this does not even include the fiscal year 2020 and 2021 numbers. The bill also revives the green cards of aliens who won the visa lottery in fiscal years 2017-21 but failed to receive the visa and be admitted. These lottery winners have an indefinite window to (re)-obtain their visa. But that is not all – the bill also offers an exemption from the green card annual numerical limits and the per country cap if a supplemental fee is paid. The provision allows applications to be filed all the way up to the last day of fiscal year 2031, a deadline likely to be extended indefinitely as it is rare for any temporary program to actually be permitted to expire.
Robert Law, the Center’s director of regulatory affairs and policy, said, “If these provisions become law, an already overwhelmed USCIS will be flooded with amnesty applications and special legal immigration carve-out petitions on top of standard immigration benefit requests. The backlogs will skyrocket, ensuring that it will take decades before the final adjustment of status application is adjudicated and all of the aliens who file will be eligible for a work permit. Unlike an employment-based green card, which generally requires a showing that the wages and conditions of Americans are not adversely affected, this work permit allows the alien to take any job, at any wage, and there are no protections for either Americans or the alien.” CIS 9/14/21
HELP STOP THIS AMNESTY, SUPPORT:THE GOSAR BILL Rep. Paul Gosar (R.Az) has introduced a bill to put a ten year moratorium on LEGAL AND ILLEGAL immigration to the United States .H.R.1883 would enact a moratorium on all immigration, build the wall, prioritize securing the Southern border, repeal certain executive orders which endanger the security of the United States, re-assert a zero-tolerance immigration policy, ensure the safe return of unaccompanied alien children, reduce human trafficking.
Gosar announced the bill in a tweet, writing “this week I sponsored a 10-year moratorium on immigration until we can figure out how to put Americans first.”
Then to harm our people more, the Biden administration uses tax money to pay for transportation, fancy hotels (one in Scottsdale, Arizona), food and health care for these illegal aliens. Meanwhile Americans suffer with inflation and low wages,” the statement continued. “We can’t have legal immigration when we have rampant illegal alien invaders. This is a threat to our national security and our economy and to our citizens.
“With the destruction of President Trump’s solid immigration enforcement, and current disregard and violation of existing federal law, Mr. Biden has unleashed the most severe border and humanitarian crisis in United States history,” Gosar added. “No other nation, save England and Germany, has willingly participated in its own economic and cultural destruction. No American voted for this desecration. The laws have not been changed. This is lawless criminality.”
The statement concluded by saying that “With millions of Americans including our veterans who are now unemployed, homeless, or living in poverty we need to take care of one another before we allow millions to migrate here. Time to pause migration to America and figure out how to put the American people first.”
ACT NOW; Tell your representatives you Oppose all the Amnesty bills and insist they re-implement all the Trump policies re the Border and re: Legal Immigration Demand that our National Legislators pass Rep.Gosar's
Bill to enact an all-categories-included zero Net Moratorium on Legal Immigration and to stop subsidizing LEGAL immigration with the $330 Billion that American Taxpayers already spend every year to subsidize it — that is $758 Million/year* Net per Congressional District for the 1.5 Million plus immigrants admitted legally each year. (400,000/year into California alone annually) prior to the Biden Executive Orders. See CCN's study of the Net Costs of Immigration at our website carryingcapacity.org.
Important to emphasize is that CCN is a Genuine Mass Immigration REDUCTION Group, so Donations to CCN have far more impact dollar for dollar than Donations to Mass Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups who refuse to support a Zero-Net all-categories-included Moratorium on Legal or to oppose Marxism and the Marxist inspired Cancel Culture and Open Borders.
Therefore, CCN invites once again all genuine REDUCTIONIST organizations to Join our Diversity Coalition for an all-categories-included Immigration MORATORIUM . . . a Coalition supported by many Immigrants from all Ethnic Groups.
Carrying Capacity Network Is Pro-Immigrant, Anti-Mass-Immigration, anti-Marxist. We have taken the lead for a decade in warning about Cultural Marxism. See for example the superb 2010 article by Lind available via link near the top right of our home page. Unfortunately, the two largest Immigration MANAGEMENT Groups have de facto undermined our efforts to reduce legal and illegal immigration.
One says its goal is to stop Illegal Immigration, but refuses to push hard to reduce legal immigration or to acknowledge the Magnet effect the uncapped Asylee and other Categories in Legal Immigration have on drawing in illegal immigrants, who can via that category automatically be designated Asylees and thus de facto legalized.
The other group says it is for “lower immigration levels” but that too is entirely Counterproductive because it sends the Message that Mass Immigration is OK but just at lower levels.
As we have been saying for over ten years the Only Position which generates enough Political Power to get reductions in Legal and Illegal immigration is to advocate an all-categories included Zero-Net Moratorium on Legal, finish building the Border wall and re-instituting the Remain in Mexico policy.
We can have a substantial impact on stopping or watering down the Reconciliation and other oncoming bills., and the oncoming CARAVANS, (which include Migrants from over 140 countries!). We have Activists in almost all states!!
However, the pandemic/economy has greatly hurt our Donations. Our nonprofit is now running on air.
The Open Borders and Marxist/Cancel Culture Threats are Intensifying!!
