Vice President Kamala Harris is in charge of fixing the border crisis that has brought thousands of illegal immigrants flooding into the U.S. She has done nothing to stop it and is now being urged to take the exact action that will make it worse.
A group of 44 Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives is imploring Harris to tack amnesty onto the proposed budget reconciliation bill, Breitbart reported. The bill is filibuster-proof and would give at least eight million illegal immigrants the right to stay — and likely encourage more.
“We write to you today to express our concern regarding the Senate Parliamentarian’s memorandum, which dismisses the budgetary impact of providing a pathway to citizenship for eight million people,” the representatives wrote to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). “As you know, the role of the Parliamentarian is an advisory one, and the opinion of the Parliamentarian is not binding.”
MacDonough has already twice rejected Democrats’ plan that could bestow millions of illegal aliens with green cards or full amnesty. As the highest presiding officer of the United States Senate, Harris could overrule Senate Parliamentarian Elizabeth MacDonough’s decision which is why the lawmakers have been turning the screws to Harris.
Democrats have continually pushed for amnesty for illegal aliens as it is, but now they have begun to lean heavily on Harris with particular urgency. A group of protestors including amnesty advocates and illegal aliens had gathered outside the vice president’s residence last week, and an earlier letter from professors similarly called on Harris to override MacDonough.
While advocates for amnesty pretend that it’s about compassion or the “American dream” for others, the groups pushing for it have much to gain. Democratic voters see it as a built-in constituency after conferring them with the right to stay and a pocketful of goodies, and colleges rake in taxpayer dollars for their tuition.
Meanwhile, border states get stuck with the influx of crime that comes with allowing people into the country who are unvetted. The Texas Department of Public Safety found that they’re dealing with an extra half-million crimes illegal aliens commit “over the course of their entire Texas criminal careers,” according to Fox News.
Harris hasn’t done anything to stem the tide and is now in a position to encourage more border crossings yet through amnesty. This is a disaster for America, yet Democrats are pushing hard for it — and that seems to be the overarching theme of this administration.
