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 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.”
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
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.”
“We made a mistake. It took too long to get it right,” Biden says when asked why voters should trust him to deliver on immigration reform after the Obama administration presided over record deportations and failed to deliver on this promise. https://t.co/sfK5s5ZOTW #Debates2020 pic.twitter.com/MQEtGE0sQB

“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.”
Biden went on to state that many Dreamers are “model citizens” and work as first responders.
“We owe them,” he concluded. “We owe them.”
“America Last” foreign policy is back: “no talk of ‘America first,’ no hint of crackdowns on immigration or refugees, and no suggestions that U.S. foreign policy needs to serve” U.S. economic interests https://t.co/T9AB65KkqK

We Owe Americans First – Biden Doesn’t Seem to Think So
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.”
Joe Biden promises no deportations AT ALL for 100 days, and thereafter won’t expel even illegal migrants arrested for new crimes.

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 @Perduesenate & @KLoeffler win their Senate runoff races in Georgia on 1/5, returning @senjudiciary Chairman @ChuckGrassley (my former boss) will bury @JoeBiden’s amnesty proposal in the Senate graveyard — right next to the burial plot for the Merrick Garland nomination. https://t.co/ilqEXK9XU2

“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 illegals, even as America struggles to take care of its own during the pandemic.
