This Thursday, the Biden White House announced a new immigration policy that would allow people who have entered the country illegally to obtain citizenship in 8 years. It also allows for a faster path to citizenship for those undocumented people who were brought into the US when they were children.
Many people fear that the flooding of illegal immigrants into the United States will inevitably change the face of the nation, change the culture, and signal to foreigners and Americans alike that the rule of law in the country when it comes to sovereignty is not to be respected.
Despite the push for illegal immigrants to be given a pass, the proposed immigration policy also has to go through Congress. Biden officials say that this proposal is an attempt by the President to restart the conversation on reforming the US immigration system, suggesting that the President would be willing to negotiate terms. The plan proposed however, offers no solutions to improve security across the border, which past immigration proposals have always included in order to win favor among Republicans.
The project seeks to give Green Cards immediately to some undocumented immigrants who have already received temporary protection as well as change the term “alien” to “non-citizen” in order to better reflect “his own values” and views towards immigration.
On top of giving amnesty and citizenship to around 11 to 22 million people who have broken the law to get into the country, the new administration also wants to bring back people who have already been deported under President Trump.
According to Breitbart:
“Most significantly, the plan would provide amnesty to illegal aliens who were already deported from the U.S. by former President Trump’s administration starting in January 2017.
Specifically, the provision provides Department of Homeland Security (DHS) waivers to deported illegal aliens — as long as they have not been convicted of a felony or three misdemeanors — so that they can return to the U.S. and apply for the amnesty.”
During the course of his 4-year presidency, Trump deported nearly 900 thousand illegal aliens. In 2019, for instance, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency deported more than 100 thousand illegals who have not been convicted of a crime (other than illegally being in the United States), making them eligible to return to the US to benefit from the Biden amnesty.
