Take the current migrant crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border; understand that what is taking place -- the mass importation of third-world poor -- is not an accident, and it has nothing at all to do with Democrat Party "compassion."
It's a cold, calculated political move, period.
First, the numbers. On Wednesday, Fox News reported that the Biden regime has been late reporting the latest illegal immigrant infiltration figures because they are massive:
There were more than 200,000 migrant encounters at the southern border in August, a DHS source told Fox News on Wednesday, the second month in a row where the number has been over the 200,000 mark as migrants continue to attempt to enter the U.S.
The source told Fox that there were 208,887 encounters in August. While it marks the first decrease in migrant encounters seen under the Biden administration, where migrant encounters have been sharply rising for months, it is only a 2% drop over the more than 212,000 encounters in July.
Additionally, the 208,887 number for August represents a 317% increase over last August 2020 which saw 50,014 encounters — and a 233% increase over August 2019, where there were 62,707 amid that year’s border crisis.
In all, some 1.3 million people have crossed illegally into our country since Joe Biden sat down behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office and began signing a multitude of executive orders aimed at reversing nearly all of Donald Trump's border enforcement policies.
That was intentional, and here's why: A provision within the Democrats' $3.5 trillion spending bill they hope to pass without any of the 50 Republicans in the evenly divided Senate will grant amnesty to anyone currently in our country illegally, and that will mean hundreds of thousands of new Democrat voters.
"Major policy changes deserve rigorous debate by our representatives in Congress and the public. Yet an amnesty for an estimated eight million people has been slipped into a reconciliation bill in order to avoid hearings and quickly advance the bill with only a simple majority in the Senate," says an analysis sent to email subscribers Wednesday from the Center for Immigration Studies.
"The amnesty for 8 million illegal immigrants contained within the budget reconciliation bill would generate a total cost to Social Security and Medicare Part A of roughly $1 trillion in present value. Under current law, illegal immigrants are net contributors to Social Security and Medicare because they partially pay in to entitlement programs, but most cannot legally receive benefits," the analysis says.
But if these millions are suddenly given amnesty and citizenship, all of a sudden they go from net contributors to such programs to beneficiaries, "imposing steep costs" on both funds, which are already teetering on insolvency.
And by the way, that wasn't a misprint: The amnesty will convert these people into citizens eventually.
"The DHS secretary is given the ability to waive applicants’ criminal, smuggling, student-visa abuse, and unlawful voting grounds of inadmissibility 'for humanitarian purposes or family unity' or 'if a waiver is otherwise in the public interest,'" the CIS analysis says. The secretary can also waive any of the criminal grounds of inadmissibility. The bill also prevents the secretary from “automatically treat[ing] an expunged conviction as a conviction.” Convictions will no longer be a bar to a green card as the bill allows convictions for offenses – regardless of how heinous or violent – to be wiped off the applicant’s record.
“If House leadership wants to grant amnesty to alien criminals, they should at least have the decency to let the American people, let alone their fellow partisans and colleagues in the GOP, know what they are up to. And if they did not intend to offer a massive, unending amnesty to criminal aliens, they should have taken their time in drafting their proposal — and not be attempting to jam through haphazard language drafted hours before it was presented to committee members," Andrew Arthur, the Center’s resident fellow in law and policy, said.
This means, of course, that even legal immigration will skyrocket, further diluting native Americans' voting power with third-world newcomers with no cultural ties whatsoever to our republic.
"If these provisions become law, an already overwhelmed USCIS will be flooded with amnesty applications and special legal immigration carve-out petitions on top of standard immigration benefit requests. The backlogs will skyrocket, ensuring that it will take decades before the final adjustment of status application is adjudicated and all of the aliens who file will be eligible for a work permit," said Robert Law, the Center’s director of regulatory affairs and policy.
"Unlike an employment-based green card, which generally requires a showing that the wages and conditions of Americans are not adversely affected, this work permit allows the alien to take any job, at any wage, and there are no protections for either Americans or the alien.”
Democrats are literally setting themselves up for permanent electoral majorities through the importation of voters because they can't convince enough Americans to back their Marxist authoritarianism.
