Rand Paul to Introduce DACA Compromise

Published

on

On Tuesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that President Donald Trump is rescinding unconstitutional protections for DACA recipients with a six month delay, and Senator Rand Paul already has a proposal to maximize Republicans benefiting from an inevitable compromise.

“The program known as DACA that was effectuated under the Obama administration is being rescinded,” Sessions announced on Tuesday.

Sessions added that the executive branch under Obama “deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions.”

In a comment about the DACA announcement, Senator Paul announced that he would like to see the receipients stay in the country, with some major immigration reform.

President Obama’s executive order was illegal. However, this is a real problem we should solve in a bipartisan fashion,” Paul said in a comment provided to Big League Politics. “There are ways to make sure people who have been here for many years since childhood are allowed to stay, including reducing immigration in other areas and reforming it. Congress will need to address this problem.”

While Senator Paul agrees with Trump rescinding the order on the grounds that it is unconstitutional, he is against deporting those who have benefited from the program — and doesn’t think it would ever happen in the first place. Therefore, the Kentucky senator has decided to try and pair a compromise with funding for border security and limits on immigration.

According to sources close to Paul, the senator is planning to introduce a bill or an amendment that will allow current DACA recipients to stay, but will subtract the number from the immigration limits for a number of years so that there is no net increase.

While many may immediately say this is unfair to those in line to immigrate to the United States properly, Paul’s plan would not allow DACA recipients to gain citizenship — they would simply be allowed to remain here and continue to work. Paul also believes that all welfare should be cut off for those who are not US citizens.

While his plan may not be quite what Trump called for during his campaign, with Republicans like John McCain and Paul Ryan constantly bending over for the Democrats and supporting amnesty, Senator Paul hopes that serious immigration reform can be part of the deal. Even Senator Tom Cotton, a top immigration hawk, is supporting legalization in the DACA dealings.

“No chance, zero, that these people aren’t legalized,” a source close to Paul told Big League Politics. “Question turns to how to handle citizenship and welfare — and what serious reforms could be added as part of the deal.”

Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election

They think they’ll be granted amnesty.

Published

on

Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.

Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.

CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.

Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.

Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.

Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.

Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.

Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
