Congress must reject ‘special interest’ amnesty

A coalition of angel families, immigration reformers, national populists and former Trump officials is urging lame Congress to reject ‘special interest’ amnesty efforts for illegal aliens and a expansion of legal immigration levels.

In recent weeks, Democrats have urged 10 Senate Republicans to join them in approving the DREAM Act, which would provide green cards and eventually naturalize US citizenship to 3.3 million eligible registered illegal aliens. the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. .

Likewise, special interest groups are pressuring Republicans and Democrats to support an amnesty for at least 2.1 million illegal aliens working on US farms – a boon for the farm lobby.

Likewise, a handful of Republicans and Democrats are hoping to push through a green card that would massively benefit Fortune 500 tech conglomerates and companies that have spent decades outsourcing American white-collar jobs to foreign visas.

Groups like Advocates for Victims of Illegal Alien Crime (AVIAC), the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA, the Claremont Institute, the Remembrance Project, the Heritage Foundation, and Judicial Watch, among others, are banding together to urge Congress to reject such programs of amnesty and expansion of immigration.

“…we are deeply concerned about the immediate danger posed by the lame session of Congress now underway,” the letter states:

Even though power is about to change hands in a chamber, various media are reporting there will be attempts to pass harmful immigration legislation, such as mass amnesty and increased immigration by Congress in the coming weeks. [Emphasis added]

We therefore ask you to take all necessary measures to stop these efforts. We urge you to show the American people that you are on their side by rejecting special interest legislation and instead taking immediate action to reverse this crisis and restore the law. and order to our immigration system. As we indicated in our previous letter, this will require the new Congress to pass a strong border security bill, undertake aggressive oversight and using the power of the purse string to cancel funds advancing Biden’s open borders agenda. [Emphasis added]

Don’t let special interests take advantage of the lame session to bankrupt their immigration program and throw average Americans under the bus. The American people are, after all, the ultimate stakeholders in our immigration system. They have expressed their will and we urge you to respect it. [Emphasis added]

Former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officials and others also signed the letter, including Chad Wolf, Christopher Landau, Derek Maltz, Gene Hamilton, Joseph Edlow, Ken Cuccinelli, Lamar Smith, Mark Meadows, Mark Morgan , Rodney Scott, Russ Vought, and Thomas Homan.

Separately, officials from Americans for Legal Immigration (ALIPAC) said they organized a grassroots effort in which activists called members of Congress to ask them to oppose any amnesty efforts during the lame session. .

“We support full and complete enforcement of our existing immigration laws as required by the U.S. Constitution, and we call on the majority of Americans who agree to telephone the U.S. Senate to immediately oppose the Amnesty Lame Duck 2022,” said William Gheen of ALIPAC. written in a press release.

Last month, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) suggested that an amnesty for the country’s 11-22 million illegal aliens was the Democrats’ “ultimate goal” to massively increase the American population by adding tens of millions of foreign-born residents. .

These mass immigration plans are backed by the nation’s largest multinational corporations who see a steady stream of foreign workers and newly arrived consumers as a boon to their profit margins while keeping American wages low and stagnant.

A labor market flooded by mass immigration to the United States has had a devastating impact on working and middle class America while redistributing wealth to the highest earners and big corporations.

While creating an economy that tilts in favor of employers, the economic model has helped keep wages stagnant for decades. Between 1979 and 2013, wage growth for the bottom 90% of Americans only increased by 15%. Meanwhile, wage growth for the top 1% of Americans was nearly 140% higher.
