When Biden and the Democrats talk about the Build Back Better bill, they claim it will be great for the American people.
What they don’t mention is amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants, but that’s apparently part of the bill.
How many people even know about this?
The Washington Examiner reports:
Biden bill would give amnesty to 6.5 million illegal immigrants, CBO says
More than 6 million illegal immigrants in the United States would be granted amnesty and allowed to obtain government benefits by House Democrats’ Build Back Better Act, according to a review by the Congressional Budget Office.
The CBO concluded in November that approximately 6.5 million noncitizens who live in the U.S. largely as a result of illegally crossing the southern border before January 2011 would be granted parole and immediately go from being unlawfully present to lawfully present. The proposal would be the largest-ever amnesty, double the size of the one that went through during the Reagan administration in 1986. The term amnesty refers to being pardoned, in this case for the federal offense of illegally entering the country between ports of entry and residing in the U.S. without permission.
“Many of those parolees would subsequently receive lawful permanent resident (LPR) status. A few million other people, most of whom are already in the United States, would gain LPR status through the provisions … or as immediate relatives of those who gain LPR status under the bill,” the CBO stated in its review of H.R. 5376…
Roughly 3 million of the 6.5 million would be eligible to become lawful permanent residents, the prerequisite for applying to become a U.S. citizen.
The American people didn’t ask for this and Biden was given no mandate to do it.
The Democrats are just doing what they want to do and what they think is best for their party, not the country.
