Biden: I Will Immediately Push To Grant Citizenship To 11 Million Illegal Immigrants

Biden Citizenship

President-elect Joe Biden announced that he plans to move on legislation that would grant citizenship to over 11 million illegal immigrants almost immediately upon entering office.

Biden made the promise during an interview with NBC News Tuesday evening.

“I’m going to make a commitment in the first 100 days, I will send an immigration bill to the United States Senate with a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million undocumented people in America,” Biden said.

He also vowed to take action on climate change regulations that President Donald Trump had rolled back in his efforts to unleash the American economy.

“I will also be moving to do away with some of the I think very damaging executive orders that have significantly impacted on making the climate worse and making us less healthy,” Biden said. 

Such a move could be catastrophic for an economy trying to recover from the financial ruin caused by a pandemic and exacerbated by Democrat lawmakers’ lockdowns.

Biden: ‘We Owe’ Illegal Immigrants

A radical move such as granting amnesty to illegals as the nation struggles to employ its own citizens shines an even brighter spotlight on the two Georgia Senate runoffs in January.

Putting a bill before the US Senate stands a much higher chance of being passed if Democrats are in control of that legislative body.

But, it’s not like voters didn’t know of Biden’s intentions long before the election.

During a presidential debate just days before voters cast their ballots, the Democrat nominee vowed to create a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million illegal immigrants, telling America “we owe them.”

“And all of those so-called dreamers, those DACA kids, they’re going to be immediately certified again to be able to stay in this country and put on a path to citizenship,” he said. 

Biden went on to state that many Dreamers are “model citizens” and work as first responders.

“We owe them,” he concluded. “We owe them.”

Biden is also on record promising to stop deportations for all illegal aliens during his first 100 days in office – making no distinction between Dreamers or those who are a criminal threat to Americans.

“In the first 100 days of my administration, no one, no one will be deported at all,” Biden said at a debate. “From that point on, the only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America.”

In announcing his new national security team, Biden promised very little in the way of national security.

“There was no talk of ‘America first’ and no hint of crackdowns on immigration or refugees,” CNBC reports.

Mike Davis, a top GOP staffer, indicated Republicans Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue in Georgia, should they win the runoffs in January and keep a majority opposition party in the Senate, will put a halt to Biden’s amnesty plans.

“If [Perdue] and [Loeffler] win their Senate runoff races in Georgia on 1/5, returning [Senate Judiciary] Chairman [Chuck Grassley] will bury Biden’s amnesty proposal in the Senate graveyard — right next to the burial plot for the Merrick Garland nomination,” he tweeted.

Biden has made it clear he wants to open up the cages that he and Barack Obama once built, open up the borders, and open up our health care system to illegal immigrants, even as America struggles to take care of its own during the pandemic.
