While everyone is getting outraged about mundane events, presidential candidate Joe Biden revealed his amnesty plan for 11 illegal aliens last week.
In addition, the Washington Times reported that Biden will push for the “full erasure of all of President Trump’s get-tough border policies, as part of the party’s new unity platform.”
Biden would allow sanctuary jurisdictions to face no legal repercussions and also gut ICE‘s ability to enforce immigration law.
The former vice presidents cooperating with failed Democrat presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders by crafting a unity platform. Under this plan, legal immigration would be increased and illegal immigration would be allowed to continue without any form of pushback.
Under the unity plan, there would be a 100-day pause on all deportations and also create an army of watchdogs that police the way Border Patrol and ICE carry out immigration policy.
The plan argued that “systemic racism” has plagued the American “immigration system, including the policies at our borders and ports of entry, detention centers and within immigration law enforcement agencies, policies and operations.”
Additionally, the platform called for the repeal of Trump’s travel ban for countries that pose threats to U.S. national security, and would allow foreign nationals who were denied entry in recent years to reapply for entry.
The plan would increase America’s refugee intake to 125,000 which would be the highest level since the mid-1990s. On the other hand, Trump placed a refugee cap of 18,000 in 2020.
Sander and Biden rolled out the platform, describing it as “a good policy blueprint that will move this country in a much-needed progressive direction and substantially improve the lives of working families throughout our country.”
“While Joe Biden and I, and our supporters, have strong disagreements about some of the most important issues facing our country, we also understand that we must come together in order to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history,” Sanders stated.
This comes at a time when President Trump is allegedly supporting an amnesty lite type of proposal regarding DACA.
While Biden’s plan is clearly more radical, the passage of any amnesty compromise will easily lead to bigger amnesties further down the line and demoralize President Trump’s pro-migration restriction base.
Trump should remember what got him elected and not give an inch on immigration. Instead, he should cut legal immigration and even push for a total timeout on immigration altogether. For the sake of the Republican Party’s electoral relevance, immigration restriction must be in order.
He will likely need help in Congress to make these policies a reality, so America First advocates will have to elect solid immigration patriots in order for immigration restriction legislation to be introduced.
