URGENT ACTION ALERT
Open Borders Reps. push $ 1.3 Trillion Alien Amnesty Bills to Senate-- Help stop them more Covid coming too!
House Bills cosponsors U.S. Reps Lucille Roybal-Allard (CA-40), Rep Nydia Velázquez (NY-07) and Yvette D. Clarke (NY-09) pushed,H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act through the House this month and on to the Senate. It would not only enable U.S.-raised immigrant youth known as “Dreamers” to earn lawful permanent residence and American citizenship but also includes protections and a path to citizenship for Temporary Protected Status (TPS) recipients and Deferred Enforced Departure (DED) beneficiaries.
The American Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) would grant amnesty to approximately 2.9 million illegal aliens who claim to have entered the country at the age of 18 or younger and meet other requirements. AND would also grant an amnesty to approximately 320,000 illegal aliens who received Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
These House Reps. also pushed through to The Senate The Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 1603) which would grant amnesty to more than 1 million alien farmworkers AND their family members, all ultimately eligible for Citizenship. Just as troubling, it would also replace the existing agriculture guest worker program with a new one. Farmers would be able to sponsor guest workers, and if they work a certain number of hours over a set period of time, workers may receive a green card.
Together, the two bills would grant amnesty to more than 5 million illegal aliens while doing nothing to prevent the kind of massive border surges that Border Patrol agents currently face as well the House Reps. passed to the Senate the Citizenship for Essential Workers Act (H.R 1909, S747) to the Senate. It would create a pathway to Citizenship for Millions of "Essential" workers. Among those included would be farmworkers, meatpackers, nurses, janitors, construction workers, grocery store clerks, truck drivers, restaurant cooks, domestic workers, home health care aides, emergency first responders,
All of the prospective beneficiaries of these bills would become de facto legal immigrants!
Among those sponsoring this bill are Reps. Joaquin Castro,(TX-20th) Ted Lieu,(CA-33rd) Senator Alex Padilla,(CA) Senator Elizabeth Warren, (MA) Additional Senator Richard Blumenthal,(CT) Reps. Raul Ruiz,(CA-36th) Pramila Jayapal,(WA-7th) Ruben Gallego,(AZ-7th) Juan Vargas,(CA-51st) Barbara Lee,(CA-13th) James P. McGovern,(MA-2nd) Adriano Espaillat,(NY-13th) Tony Cárdenas,(CA-29th) Senator Cory A. Booker,(NJ) Reps Grace Napolitano,(CA-32nd) Raúl Grijalva,(AZ-3rd) Nikema Williams,(GA-5th) Diana DeGette, (CO-1st) Ro Khanna,(CA-17th) Sara Jacobs,(CA-53rd) Teresa Leger Fernández,(NM-3rd) and Rep. Darren Soto,(FL-9th)
The cost of these Bills could be as high as $1.3 trillion or more!
Washington, D.C. (April 5, 2021) – A new report from the Center for Immigration Studies highlights the added cost to Social Security and Medicare that would result from any bill passed by the U.S. Congress providing legal status and a path to citizenship to illegal immigrants. Under current law, illegal immigrants are net contributors to Social Security and Medicare because they partially pay into entitlement programs but 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, resident scholar at the Center and author of the report, said, "Amnesty transforms illegal immigrants from net contributors to net beneficiaries of our entitlement programs. It is important to acknowledge this large added cost, but the CBO's 10-year budget window will miss it."
Amnesty would impose a lifetime net cost on Social Security and Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) of about $129,000 per amnesty recipient. This cost is the present discounted value of benefits received minus new taxes paid.
If 10 million illegal immigrants receive amnesty, (and their are already over 20 Million in the USA--ED) the total cost to Social Security and Medicare Part A would be roughly $1.3 trillion in present value, equivalent to a one-time transfer of 6 percent of GDP.
Because most of these costs would occur outside its 10-year budget window, the Congressional Budget Office is unlikely to include them when it scores amnesty legislation.
In addition, as the USA starts to come out of the pandemic, the Biden Administration has increased
the number of H2b Visa (Ag workers)Jobs by 22,000 added on to the 66,000 H2b Visas already authorized.
These are exactly the kind of low skill Jobs that many unemployed Americans Need and want.
Unfortunately, virtually all Democratic Senators and five Republican Senators appear ready to make a deal which includes some Amnesty provisions. This would be a Disaster from a Cost, National Security and Disease vulnerability point of view as the following excerpts from an AXios article shows:
"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 he has recently flipped and now wants to work with the Democrats to reward illegal aliens.
According to Axios, the “biggest areas of consensus were protections for so-called Dreamers and preserving the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.” John Cornyn told the outlet that there isn’t a lot of trust and Republicans don’t want to do a “comprehensive immigration reform.” They prefer an incremental approach. (Translation: we will accept some Amnesty provisions --Ed)
“I think if we did something that is pretty much consensus, like DACA, then that would be confidence-building, and then we'd kind of move on to the next."
Democratic Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin said both sides agree that “we’ve got to reform the system.”
The only positives are that none of the Republicans appear in favor of Biden’s bills as passed and there is little to no support for the BLANKET amnesties the House passed last month. They include a massive farm worker Amnesty and an expansive legalization of illegal aliens who came to the U.S. as minors. But the obvious major downside is that some Republicans are willing to entertain a national sellout by including Amnesty provisions.
A Ray of Hope: Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit against President Joe Biden’s administration, alleging that the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has exempted border crossers from emergency Chinese coronavirus public health regulations, spurring a public health crisis at the United States-Mexico border.
The lawsuit, filed on Thursday, claims that the Biden administration has increasingly refused to enforce the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) Title 42 authority that requires federal immigration officials to quickly return border crossers to their native countries on the basis that they pose a public health risk to American citizens Breitbart
Re: National Security: Thus earlier this month, Customs and Border Patrol announced two separate apprehensions of Yemeni individuals on the Terrorist Watch List—only subsequently to scrub the announcement from its website without explanation [CBP Removes Press Release About Migrants on the U.S. Terror Watch List Who Crossed the Southern Border, by Todd Bensman, The Investigative Project on Terrorism, April 7, 2021]
Unfortunately, The No BAN Act, H.R. 1333, introduced by Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.) and passed by the House, would make it increasingly more difficult for the president to suspend immigration for certain classes of individuals where the suspension would serve in the national interest. The impact is similar to that which Sanctuary City/State designations have.
It was under this authority that Pres. Trump was able to suspend the entry of travelers from certain regions of the world at the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic. Statistics show that of the 100,000 Illegals who entered the USA in March at least 5% have Covid! And they are being transported all over the USA by the Biden Administration The No BAN Act would prevent the president from taking swift action hindering our ability to protect the national and health security and quality of life for American citizens
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 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 reinstituting the Remain in Mexico policy.
We can have a substantial impact on stopping or watering down the oncoming bills., and the oncoming CARAVANS, (which include Migrants from over 70 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!!.
