House Democrats Begin Drafting Amnesty Plan to Send to Joe Biden

By

House Democrats have started drafting a plan to provide an amnesty for all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States, a proposal on which Democrat Joe Biden has repeatedly said he will sign off.

report by Politico notes that House Democrats, led by Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-CA), are working on an amnesty plan they hope to file immediately after Biden takes office:

Still, Democrats say they’re determined to put forth a comprehensive immigration reform bill that Biden can sign off on. Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) is drafting a bill that Democrats hope to drop right as Biden enters the White House. [Emphasis added]

The Politico report details how the open borders lobby is currently urging Biden to follow through on not only an amnesty for all illegal aliens, but also a halt to all deportations for at least 100 days and an end to President Trump’s constitutional travel ban that has stopped immigration from terrorist-sanctioned countries.

Politico reports:

Tapping Mayorkas, former deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security under Obama, is a “conversation starter,” Franco said. But she and other immigrant advocates say staffing is just one piece of it. They want the former vice president to impose a 100-day moratorium on deportations, rescind many of Trump’s more than 400 executive orders on immigration (like the so-called Muslim ban) and lay the groundwork for tougher goals like a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants — all promises he made on the campaign trail. [Emphasis added]

Privately, multiple Hispanic Caucus members said a large number of Democrats would be “severely disappointed” if Biden didn’t push immigration reform early. “That’s not going to sit well with a lot of folks,” said one lawmaker in the caucus. [Emphasis added]
