Democrats introduce ‘gradual’ daily amnesty for millions of illegal aliens

A handful of House Democrats are proposing a “gradual” daily amnesty that would give green cards to illegal aliens as long as they claim to have lived in the United States for seven years.

On Wednesday, Reps. Lou Correa (D-CA), Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Norma Torres (D-CA), Jesus Garcia (D-IL), Adriano Espaillat (D-NY), and Grace Meng (D-NY ) announced their legislation that would allow millions of illegal aliens each year to obtain green cards and eventually naturalized U.S. citizenship.

The amnesty plan would update the Immigration and Nationality Act registration date to 2015 and correct it daily so that illegal aliens claiming to have lived in the United States for at least seven years can permanently obtain green cards.

“The bill would authorize applicants who entered the United States at least seven years prior to the date of application,” says a press release from Correa’s office. “This law would establish a permanent permanent register which would be renewed daily.”

“Now is the time to pass legislation in the House and Senate,” Correa said.

In 2015, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) estimated that approximately 11.4 million illegal aliens lived in the United States. This figure indicates that potentially more than 11 million foreigners in an irregular situation could benefit from the amnesty.

Senate Democrats attempted to include such an amnesty provision in a reconciliation package last year. This amnesty would have provided green cards to at least seven million illegal aliens living in the United States.

The amnesty was ultimately rejected by the Senate parliamentarian. Later, President Joe Biden slipped the same amnesty provisions into his “Build Back Better” budget, but the effort never passed Congress.

In 2013, a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) analysis said the “Gang of Eight” amnesty plan would “slightly” lower wages for American workers. A 2020 CBO analysis stated that “immigration has put downward pressure on the wages of relatively unskilled workers who are already in the country, regardless of their place of birth.”
