Joe Biden Wants Amnesty for All Illegal Aliens and Wants to Keep Immigrants on Welfare in America
John Binder of Breitbart News reported that former Vice President Joe Biden wants to amnesty all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens residing in America, letting borders crossers run loose into the American interior, and relaunching welfare-dependent legal immigration that would cost American taxpayers billions of dollars.
Biden’s plan was released on Wednesday November 11, 2019.
In it, Biden promises to provide amnesty to all illegal aliens living in the U.S. On top of that, Biden wants reverse of President Trump’s public charge reforms, by allowing legal immigrants to permanently resettle in the country despite being a public burden on taxpayers.
“Biden will immediately begin working with Congress to modernize our system, with a priority on keeping families together by providing a roadmap to citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants,” the plan’s outline detailed.
In addition to mass amnesty, the Binder notes that the plan pledges to do the following:
- Releasing all border crossers into the U.S. interior
- Restarting welfare-dependent legal immigration to the U.S.
- Ending the National Emergency Declaration at the southern border
- Ending a travel ban from foreign countries that sponsor terrorism
- Providing amnesty to 3.5 million DACA-enrolled and DACA-eligible illegal aliens
- Providing federal student loans and free community college to DACA illegal aliens
- Cracking down on Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents
Biden’s immigration plan would be a burden for American taxpayers.
Take for example, Biden’s DACA amnesty plan.
It would leave U.S. taxpayers on the hook for $26 billion given that one in five DACA illegal aliens would end up on food stamps, and at least one in seven would turn to Medicaid, according to projections from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).
This cost would be tacked on to the billions that Americans would have to shoulder thanks to Biden’s restoration of welfare-dependent legal immigration. A few months ago, Trump announced that he would phase out the resettlement of millions of legal immigrants who were determined to be public charges.
Biden, however, has other plans in mind, stating:
Allowing immigration officials to make an individual’s ability to receive a visa or gain permanent residency contingent on their use of government services such as SNAP benefits or Medicaid, their household income, and other discriminatory criteria undermines America’s character as land of opportunity that is open and welcoming to all, not just the wealthy.
Although not as radically open borders as some of his 2020 presidential aspirants in the Democrat Party, Biden represents the Democrat’s gradual radicalization on the issue of open borders. To many of these candidates, America’s existence as a viable nation-state is an afterthought.
For anyone who wants to see rational policies on immigration, the Democrat Party is not an option in the 2020 elections.
