New Immigration Bill Will End American National Security

With the borders open for all to enter what is next for America?

The U.S. southern border is just a waypoint for migrants along a much larger journey. One that usually ends far from the deserts of Arizona, the brush country in Texas, or the beaches and mountains near San Diego.

According to the Pew Research Center, most of the undocumented immigrants within the United States live in just 20 major metropolitan areas. Ranking number one is the New York metro area which is home to 1.1 million illegal immigrants. Ranking number two is the Los Angeles metro area — home to an estimated 925,000 illegal aliens.

There is no reason to believe that future illegal immigration patterns will trend away from these select metropolitan areas considering many, including New York and Los Angeles, are sanctuary cities. What is interesting is the outward migration from these areas.

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, New York’s wealthiest residents left the city in record numbers. U.S. Census Bureau statistics indicate over 126 thousand residents left New York state between July 2019 and July 2020. Many of them seeking states with no state income tax such as Texas or Florida.

The same data shows over 135,000 residents left California. Prominent tech giants Oracle and Hewlett Packard announced the relocation of operations from California to Texas. Tesla CEO Elon Musk followed suit.

So far, President Joe Biden promised an immigration plan that will include a pathway to citizenship for over 11 million illegal immigrants currently living in the shadows. His recent executive orders ending the “remain in Mexico” program, also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, and his executive order reducing interior enforcement of immigration laws have all but decimated the strong anti-illegal immigration measures of the Trump administration. In essence, the welcome mat has been laid out.

So far, the new president has not defined any real position on increasing border security or that it is of any relevance to him. The Immigration Reform and Control Act contained provisions to increase the size of the U.S. Border Patrol by 50 percent each year during the two years after its passage. As a deterrent to future illegal immigration, significant employer sanctions measures were put in place.  This clause was largely to garner bi-partisan support in Congress.

In stark contrast, The U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021, which President Biden has presented to Congress, lacks any substantial enforcement strategy to curtail future illegal immigration once the amnesty portion is concluded.

Far from increasing efforts to deter future illegal immigration, a fact sheet on Biden’s immigration plan provided to reporters by the White House focuses more on providing pathways to relief from our current immigration laws than identifying ways to properly enforce them.

According to the fact sheet:

The bill codifies and funds the President’s $4 billion four-year inter-agency plan to address the underlying causes of migration in the region, including by increasing assistance to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, conditioned on their ability to reduce the endemic corruption, violence, and poverty that causes people to flee their home countries.

Rather than any increase in personnel needed to ready the Border Patrol to deal with the almost certain influx the bill will promote, the plan lays out enhancements to internal investigation capabilities and oversight.

The fact sheet continues:

The bill provides funding for training and continuing education to promote agent and officer safety and professionalism. It also creates a Border Community Stakeholder Advisory Committee, provides more special agents at the DHS Office of Professional Responsibility to investigate criminal and administrative misconduct, and requires the issuance of department-wide policies governing the use of force.

Much of what little the bill’s fact sheet does say about border security is related to narcotics smuggling at ports of entry and little if any definitive way towards enforcement between the ports of entry. As experience has taught us along the border, if the Border Patrol Agents are processing and caring for thousands of illegal immigrants, very few are patrolling the border. The references to smart technologies are moot if the Border Patrol cannot deploy an adequate response that smart technology will require.

What Biden’s plan does not do is change in any way the existing immigration laws that place people in the shadows in the first place. When all is said and done, it will still be a criminal offense to enter the United States illegally.

Much like the last attempt to provide relief to the illegal immigrant population in 2013 proposed by the “gang of eight,” Bidens plan will surely face significant opposition from certain members of Congress. It is far from a bi-partisan bill at this point.

The mere fact an amnesty plan has been proposed and the lax tenor of other executive actions related to immigration will have implications miles from the border. In states like New York and California, where tax revenues plummeted due to the exodus of wealthy residents, a new wave of illegal immigrants will pose significant financial impacts as they continue to battle COVID-19 and its effect on employment opportunities.

As many businesses look to automation to reduce labor costs and other businesses are suffering COVID-19-related closures, President Biden added tens of thousands of workers to the unemployment line by canceling permits to the Keystone Pipeline.

Biden’s intention to increase the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour poses another risk to the viability of many small businesses.

Many factors influence illegal immigration to the United States. Changes in our economy or the economies abroad, security concerns, and existing employment opportunities in the home country will play a role in future migration to the United States. Although some may disagree, any hope of amnesty in the future will likely cause a future influx as well. For those who currently reside in those major metropolitan areas that historically attract most illegal immigrants, the financial impacts may be felt for years to come.

  1. What’s Next?? Brute force Bolshevik Communism Rule is next if we don’t stop Biden and the rest of these Demonrat Clowns!! That’s what’s next!!!!!!!!!

  2. WILL WE SAFE ANYWHERE WE GO. ? EVEN TO THE SUPERMARKET, WHEN PUTTING YOUR GOODIES IN YOUR CAR, YOUR BACK IS TURNED & BINGO YOUR SHOPPING CART FILLED IS STOLEN. SOMETHING TO BE AWARE OF , IT IS NOT FICTION BUT BIG TIME FACT.

  3. Any and all that have acquaintances, friends, neighbors, relatives that claim to be Conservatives and did not register nor vote this past national election had better be prompted by you and yours to do so before 2022. Conservatives must vote in record numbers and we must take “ANY and All” Congressional seats up for re-election in 2022 away from incumbent Democrats.

    In addition, we, as Conservatives, must demand, push and make our elected, Congressional representatives write, present and pass legislation for “Limited Terms” for Congress and the Supreme Court Justice seats. “Limited Terms” will destroy power building, pork barrel project funding, personal wealth building by members of Congress off the backs of the tax payers, will remove partisan gridlock and return Congress to the membership the Founding Fathers envisioned, citizen Congressmen.

    “Limited Terms”! Concerned Citizens, Patriots and Conservatives, this is the answer and the way we take Congress back and in addition we must take away the self-serving autonomy Congress has created and maintained (for decades) for itself. They have placed themselves above and beyond our reach and that has to stop or America will not survive.

    Congress was not created for the few to control the masses, yet that is what they believe they are entitled to and in so doing demonstrate that they have no allegiance to the voters/constituents who put them in office in the first place, instead that allegiance is to their political party and mostly to themselves.

    The Founding Fathers experience with politics did not provide them with the necessary foresight to anticipate what Congress would devolve into and that is not their fault; they could not foresee individuals wanting to make a career out of politics and to personally prosper from that career. They envisioned “citizen members” that would come and go as their actual/personal outside commitments required.

    Today’s Congress must be taken down and ownership transferred back to the citizens of the United States of America! AND, it must be demanded and “NOW”! How dare they remove themselves from the government system that most federal employees belong and adhere to. They steal from Social Security funds because that theft does not affect them personally but does give them money to squander that does not belong to them as they do not belong to that supplemental retirement system. Congress took it upon themselves to redefine what SS was/is and then by so doing placed SS funds into the “General Fund” where they were never meant to be thus giving access to our SS contributions.

    Members of Congress set their own salaries and benefits because they are not enrolled or affected by OPM regulations as are the majority of federal employees. “Total Autonomy” is what they have given and developed for themselves and that is “WRONG” and has to be revamped and taken away from Congress.

    “Term Limits” must be of a length that precludes what they have been able to do for themselves for decades: The Senate “8” years and done, The House “6” years and done. The Supreme Court Justice seats “10” years and done. Also, we must demand the dismantling of “The Lobby” as lobbyists are nearly all previous politicians. Once an individual has served in Congress or the Supreme Court they are banned from candidacy for that position again at a later date.

    “Term Limits’ will also lower the cost for candidacy and will deter wealth builders and power mongers from running for Congressional membership. Governors and the USA President have “term limits” why have we allowed Congress to evade them for so long?

    Ted Cruz proposed legislation which set a “16” year term limit and that is far too long and defeats the purpose of term limits which is to curtail career building as “16” years a career does make.

  4. I wonder when the American people will get fed up with these idiot’s destorying our country! We want have a country left in four years i hate to see the country i love tore s part the way is!

  5. These TWO freaks , HAVE TO GO, voting doesn’t work THEY CHEAT AT THAT, THEY THOUGHT President Trump was a DICTATOR, now we got a real live one that TRULY IS ONE, well let me qualify that, we have a puppet dick, this can’t think for himself, wouldn’t surprise me if jilly doesn’t have to take him to the bathroom, he’s completely USELESS.

  6. The major tax revenue lost in NY was due to no one going out shopping and Covid, not from “losing wealthy citizens”. Rich New Yorkers regularly leave NY to vacation every winter and you don’t see newspapers reporting that. There is NOTHING wrong with PROPERLY training border Patrol agents. Trump’s “tough” policy sure didn’t deter anyone. Trying to stop people from fleeing their own country is important to help stop immigration. I do believe we still need tough actions against businesses that hire illegal immigrants. If we stop the people from hiring them it will also slow down them coming here. They know they can find work so of course they are going to flee their violent, deadly, Homeland that has no jobs and no chance to improve their circumstances. Illegal immigration is not black and white, literally and figuratively. There are many reasons and we need to come up with new ways to handle them. The old ways with more guns and violence isn’t working
