President Donald Trump spent the better part of four years in the White House working tirelessly on immigration reform and because of his efforts, he made America safer.
That could all soon be erased if former Vice President Joe Biden manages to take office, as per Breitbart, he has lofty plans to send a massive amnesty bill to Congress that would legalize “over 11 million” illegal immigrants who are currently residing in the U.S.
In a recent NBC interview, Biden emphasized a promise he made during his campaign that within his first 100 days in the White House, he’d send such a plan to Congress, although it could be a hard sell if Republicans manage to hold majority control of the U.S. Senate.
“But I am going, I made a commitment, in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden told NBC News host Lester Holt.
Even if Republicans do manage to maintain majority control of the upper chamber, there are already several high-profile senators – like Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) who have expressed some level of interest in helping Biden with his amnesty plan, much to the dismay of others in the party.
According to the Washington Examiner, senators like Graham have worked across the aisle for years on an amnesty plan that Republicans can swallow. On many occasions, Graham pushed Trump to consider such plans, even suggesting that it would help him win the Latino vote, though we saw in the 2020 election that Trump scored huge with that voting bloc without even touching amnesty.
As Breitbart pointed out, recent exit polls continued to show that Americans — party lines aside — are not in favor of more immigration. Should an amnesty bill the scope and size of what Biden is planning pass through Congress, one can easily deduce that immigration to the U.S. will skyrocket in the coming years.
With jobs in short supply, especially as COVID-19 concerns continue to shake the job market, the last thing that American citizens need to worry about is competing against a stream of foreign workers for available jobs left on the market.
