In his first few hours as President, Joe Biden halted construction on the southern border wall and pledged to end all deportations…
But that wasn’t enough for the far-left Democrats hoping to secure a permanent grasp on Congress and the White House.
Democrat senators are now actively trying to recruit Republicans to sign on to their new amnesty bill.
Unsurprisingly, they’re going after soft Rs who have previously folded on this issue: Lindsey Graham, Susan Collins, Thom Tillis, Rick Scott, and Marco Rubio.
TheHill.com reports that Senator Graham has already started drafting a bill with Senator Durbin to provide citizenship for so-called “dreamers.”
Durbin told reporters “If we can reach an agreement soon, very soon, we will have the base bill reintroduced and then that will be our starting point to build support as well as consider any additions, too.”
The bill is said to be modeled after “similar efforts in the past” so we can expect amnesty, amnesty, and… just getting a note on this now… right, more amnesty.
Despite conservatives making themselves very clear on the issue of immigration over the past 30 years, Republicans are likely to jump at the chance to virtue signal to Hispanic voters, who they (wrongfully) believe are pro-amnesty. (They’re not.)
If passed, the amnesty bill will undoubtedly destabilize an already tumultuous job market and contribute to the debt created by the ever-growing welfare state.
