Wayne Dupree: If Biden wins,11.5m illegal immigrants will get an amnesty, causing a huge surge in the numbers crossing the border
Fox News has run an exclusive article reporting that Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden plans to wipe away the Trump administration’s immigration policies, and specifically those concerning illegal immigration, if elected president.
The report on the changes Biden wants to implement is a stark warning. It quotes the Heritage Foundation as saying, “If Biden were to become president, he would return to many of the same immigration policies in place during the Obama administration. This would include … admitting at least 125,000 refugees annually and seeking amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens.”
A Biden administration would also increase the number of permanent employment-based visas, as well as the number of H-1B high-skilled visas – something the Trump administration has sought to limit.
But you don’t have to believe Fox or even the Heritage Foundation – you just need to be prepared to scroll down a long way on Biden’s own website to find this:
“Joe Biden will work with Congress to pass legislation that:
Creates a roadmap to citizenship for the nearly 11 million people who have been living in and strengthening our country for years. These are our mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters. They are our neighbors, co-workers, and members of our congregations and Little League teams. They contribute in countless ways to our communities, workforce, and economy.”Also on rt.com Wayne Dupree: Oh, so now Biden claims his 1994 crime bill that led to the mass incarceration of black Americans was a mistake?
Of course this is what Biden will do. He will also roll back any executive actions from President Trump early on, then he’ll work on removing the beneficial tax act provisions. He will cherry-pick, leaving some in place that he can take credit for later.
In the last few days of the campaign, Trump needs to stay on message with these issues, be disciplined, and focus on what his efforts have done and will do, versus Biden’s plans and what it means for the average American in terms of higher taxes, lower wages, fewer job opportunities, more outsourcing, and so on. He can mention the other stuff, like Hunter Biden and corruption, but he needs to make the point quickly and return to the main message.
A student can borrow thousands of dollars to pay their way through the school systems only to find his or her desired tech job is taken by foreigners working at contract firms for cheaper salaries. Contest it all you want, but this statement is true.
I will never support illegal immigration. Rewarding people for criminal activity is a horrible practice. If they want to raise the quotas legally and there are enough jobs to go round, I’m fine with that. However, they should punish and deport those who come illegally. It’s not fair to everyone else who’s waiting legally in line.
Illegal immigrants are not citizens. They are not entitled to welfare, loans or grants to go to college. If one looks at the US immigration laws, there are some key phrases about sustaining yourself when coming into this country. Most of these Dreamers are way over 18 and could have applied for citizenship, but refuse to do so.
It’s not about denying and hurting illegal immigrants; it’s about the law. The immigration rules for entry are about protecting existing Americans and making sure the legal immigrants who do come in are suitably qualified to join our great nation, or are refugees in need of protection.
Yes, most illegal immigrants may be good people, but we would send a bad message by allowing 11 million of them amnesty: just get here, by any way possible, and the end will justify the means. What message are you sending to the others who follow the rules, file immigration paperwork, pay the fees, and wait for their number to be called?Also on rt.com Wayne Dupree: This election is a fight for our country’s future – and Trump’s got some unfinished business to take care of
According to National Public Radio, “Despite a federal judge’s order that the government reunite families who had been separated at the US-Mexico border under the Trump administration’s ‘no tolerance’ migration policy, the parents of 545 children still can’t be found, according to a court document filed Tuesday by the US Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union.” This is nuts! But it’s what you end up with when you keep encouraging the illegals to make the trip.
Isn’t it amazing that the moderators have not asked a single question about immigration policy in all of the debates and town hall meetings? It’s yet further proof of their liberal bias, as they know the American public is more in sync with Trump’s immigration stance than with Biden’s. They just don’t want to showcase that stark difference to the voters during the debates.
Little wonder the Dems don’t want to talk about this. As political pundit Mickey Kaus, who was a candidate for the US Senate in a Democratic primary in 2010, explained recently: “It does seem to me that amnesty… is another huge issue and maybe the biggest issue. It’s on Biden’s platform. You have to look for a bit, but it’s there: a path to citizenship, or amnesty, for all 11.5 million or however many there are undocumented immigrants in the US.
“And that… is a huge change because, in the long term, people living abroad will say, well, gee, we had a big amnesty in 1986 and then we had a second amnesty under the Biden administration, and maybe if I come there’s surely going to be a third amnesty. So it’s a big long-term magnet for illegal immigration, in addition to what was described with asylum, which is a short-term magnet for a huge surge as soon as Biden’s elected because people will know that he’s going to be changing the rules. So there’s sort of a short-term surge and a long-term surge that happens under Biden.”
I honestly haven’t seen a single good idea come from the Biden camp since forever. Raising social security withholdings while still spending all the money, raising the tax rates of small and large businesses returning us to stagnation and the offshoring of jobs, military cuts, free down payments, free college, credits, credits, credits. Someone has to pay for all of this, and free anything is never free. We will end up with 50 percent of the population having degrees in African American studies and Parks and Recreations, and living in government-paid shacks.Also on rt.com Wayne Dupree: Wake the hell up and stop being defeatist! We need to be vigilant to stop this election being STOLEN from us
There is also a full-court press by the media, the deep state, Big Tech, and academia to convince you that Biden will be the next president. If he succeeds, we’ll have open borders and politicians from just two states running the Senate, and a supreme court with 13 justices and a Democratic majority.
The Democrats will overwhelm and rig the system so badly that no pro-Trump Republican could ever be elected in almost any state ever again. China will own this country lock, stock, and barrel if Biden gets in. All of our rights will be subjected to a type of means testing (if you’re determined to be ‘privileged,’ you’ll lose, while those deemed ‘non-privileged’ will gain), conservatives will lose their freedom of speech, and the right to own a gun will completely disappear. These are just plain facts. The Dems have verified their intent on most of this, and Big Tech has been showing its hand increasingly for years now on free speech. It will be a combination of the Democrat government and Big Tech that completely wipes out all our rights.
President Trump is the only president willing to stand up to China for the American worker’s economic wellbeing. He has brought manufacturing jobs and warehouses back to the US, in both our automotive and energy sectors. If you live in Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, or Wisconsin, get out and make sure you take at least one other person to vote for President Trump and the Republicans (House and Senate). We need strong job growth, not high taxes and outsourced jobs.
It’s simple. If you want to eventually be part of a global government, vote for Biden. If you want America to stay as it is, ruled by Americans, vote for Trump.
