President Biden Calls for Amnesty

President Biden Calls for Amnesty

(InformingNews.com) – When President Joe Biden took office, he was quick to undo everything former President Trump did during his administration. While the Biden administration’s plan to pay money to families separated when illegally crossing the southern border failed, their new idea isn’t much better.

On January 31, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the administration is calling for Congress to grant amnesty or permanent legal status to these individuals. He added that the agenda has full backing from the president.

If the White House can get Congress to approve the needed legislation to make the plan a reality, it could mean thousands of illegal immigrants will get to stay in the country with no consequences for cutting the line at the entrance.

Federation for American Immigration Reform spokesperson Matthew Tragesser criticized the idea, saying it aims to satisfy only a small group without addressing important factors to discourage future illegal immigration. It isn’t a solution and may only add to the problem since it rewards breaking the law to enter the country.

Representative Paul Gosar (R-AZ) called the idea a disgrace. He said it would only act as encouragement to bring more people across the southern border. Gosar also accused President Biden of violating his oath of office with his actions to aid illegal immigration.
