Fantastic. In a time when American citizens are struggling for jobs, and good paying jobs, let’s bring in a ton of immigrants, particularly illegals and their families
(Daily Caller) The pending Senate immigration bill would bring a minimum of 33 million people into the country during its first decade of operation, according to an analysis by NumbersUSA, a group that wants to slow the current immigration rate.
By 2024, the inflow would include an estimated 9.2 million illegal immigrants, plus 2.5 million illegals who arrived as children — dubbed ‘Dreamers’ — plus roughly 3.4 million company-sponsored employees with university degrees, said the unreleased analysis.
The majority of the inflow, or roughly 17 million people, would consist of family members of illegals, recent immigrants and of company-sponsored workers, according to the NumbersUSA analysis provided to The Daily Caller.
There you go: it’s not just the “amnesty” offered to people who broke our laws by either coming across the border illegally or overstaying their VISAs, but their families who still live outside the United States. A good chunk who will almost immediately end up on the government dole.
What we’re hearing now is what we heard back in the 198o’s before the amnesty was granted. It’s “the right thing to do.” “It’s a right.” “People who oppose a pathway to citizenship are heartless and big meanies.” “We have to bring illegals out of the shadows.” Strangely, the proponents of amnesty never seem to mention the rule of law, nor what all these low skilled workers can do to the jobs market. We do hear about how we need to make sure this doesn’t have to happen again, but then these same people immediately work to gut the legal protections against more illegal aliens.
And we can surely expect that the border will never be secured in the first place, nor will proper protections be put in place for those who are here on visas, either for work or to visit, if the Gang of 8 bill passes. Once again legislation fails to put in one of the best methods, namely making the penalties, both civil and criminal, on those who knowingly hire illegals so tough that no would hire them, which would significantly reduce the inflow.
NumbersUSA calls their estimate “conservative”, with the possibility of growing up to 40 million, based on future legislation and regulation, as well as how governmental agencies deal with the Gang Of 8 legislation.
