28 Democrats won't say they support Biden's amnesty for illegals
More than two dozen House Democrats, many representing swing counties and districts won by former President Trump, have remained silent about their support or opposition to President Joe Biden’s amnesty plan that would eventually provide American citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.
The Biden amnesty, known as the U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, seeks to immediately provide green cards to millions of illegal aliens considered farmworkers, enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and Temporary Protected Status (TPS) beneficiaries.
In addition, the amnesty would provide all other illegal aliens with a fast-track to green cards and citizenship, providing a flooded labor market with reduced U.S. wages for corporations and potentially a permanent Democrat electoral majority.
Likewise, the amnesty would drive up legal immigration by providing more visas to programs like the Diversity Visa Lottery and exempting family members of certain visa holders from current caps.
Silent on the amnesty are 28 House Democrats who won their seats in the 2020 election cycle by less than 25,000 votes. In seven cases, these Democrats won their seats by margins of less than 10,000 votes against Republican challengers.
The Biden amnesty comes as 18 million Americans are jobless and another 6.2 million are underemployed.
The story lists the Democrats in question. Three of them are from Texas. I have not seen a groundswell of support for amnesty.
