Senate Amnesty: Legalizing Lawbreaking on a Massive Scale (aka Nearly Open Borders)
Print Friendly and PDF

A suspicious person might reasonably look away momentarily from the noisy debate on the legalization of (officially) 11 million lawbreaking foreign job thieves and reflect upon the ginormous “future flow” of legal immigrants that continues in perpetuity. Gargantuan unsustainable legal immigration is the real crime against Americans.

After all, to Democrats the goal is to import millions of big-government foreigners who will vote for the handout party. Liberals in Britain and France have used the immigration ruse to import millions of future voters more to their liking. Muslim newbies in France supplied the edge to the Socialist candidate François Hollande’s election win last year.

Senator Sessions brought up the question of legal numbers during the Thursday mark-up. Senator Schumer’s response was that the millions are coming anyway; under the new regime they will enter legally. Schumer said, “They’re coming. They’re either coming under law or not under law. And what we do is try to rationalize that system.”

So Schumer is saying in effect that no enforcement can be implemented that will keep out the invading foreigners, so Washington might as well legalize the unlawful behavior — problem solved, according to Democrat rules!

No wonder that illegal entries on the border have tripled in recent months in anticipation of the mega-amnesty. The aliens have the Democrats scoped out pretty accurately.

Here’s Senator Sessions’ press release from Wednesday questioning “future flow.”

Sessions, Vitter Ask Gang Of Eight To Provide Their Estimates Of Future Flow, Cite Concerns For U.S. Workers, May 8, 2013

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sens. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and David Vitter (R-LA) today sent a letter to the Gang of Eight Senators asking for estimates of future flow under the bill, detailing the specific categories of immigration that must be tallied:

Dear Colleagues:

The immigration bill is proceeding toward a vote and yet members of the Senate still do not have an estimate from the bill’s sponsors of the future flow of immigration that will occur.

It appears your bill would authorize legal status for 30 million immigrants over the next 10 years and provide work authorization to many millions more through nonimmigrant visas.

The public, and the Senate, are entitled to hear directly from the bill’s sponsors about just how many people will be given legal status under this proposal over the next decade. Only then can we fully understand the implications for the 90 million Americans who are not in the labor force, many of whom are either unemployed or have simply given up looking for a job. 

We would therefore ask that you provide a detailed estimate of the total number of individuals—both immigrant and nonimmigrant—who will be granted some form of legal status or work authorization over the next 10 years. Specifically, this number is to include, over a 10-year period:

1. The total number of green cards that will be issued, including the clearing of past applications no longer subject to the annual cap (the so-called backlog);

2. An estimate of chain migration, particularly in light of the removal of caps on immediate family members of green card holders and in light of the expedited status for those who qualify for the DREAM and Ag fast-track. This should also include an estimate of chain migration ensuing from the roughly 7 million illegal immigrants whose green cards may not be issued until after the 10th year after enactment;

3. The total number of illegal immigrants and visa overstays who will be granted work authorization and legal status;

4. The total number of student visas to be issued and an estimate of chain migration ensuing from the proposed dual intent feature of the student visa;

5. The total number of nonimmigrant visas that will be issued, including a specific breakdown of the number with work authorization and how many of those family members admitted with the nonimmigrant workers will also have work authorization.
