Democrat leader Chuck Schumer calls for pardon for 11 million immigrants, saying population is “not naturally proliferating” and should welcome more immigrants
- “We are short of workers. We have a population that is not self-reproducing at the same level as before,” reasoned New York Democrats.
- “The only way we can have a great future is if we welcome and accept immigrants… all 11 million or any of them can have a path to citizenship.”
- Schumer also refuted the narrative that immigrants bring crime to America
- “Immigrants…have higher employment rates and lower crime rates than the average American…The BS spread by these right-wing people makes me worse!”
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday launched a new pitch for a pardon, arguing that the United States is “short of workers.” meeting “No matter how many people are undocumented here,” they must go through the “Road to Citizenship.”
‘We’re short of workers. The population isn’t growing on its own at the same level it used to be,’ says New York Democratic Party reasoned.
“The only way we will have a great future is if we welcome and accept immigrants … all 11 million, or whatever number there are here, can get their way to citizenship.”
The undocumented immigrant population is difficult to track, with anti-immigrant group FAIR putting the number at 15.5 million by the end of 2021. However, in fiscal year 2022, which ended in October, there were 2.76 million illegal immigrant encounters at the southern border, excluding those who “fleeed” who were not found by law enforcement.
Schumer on Wednesday launched a new amnesty pitch, claiming the United States is “short of workers.”
“We are short of workers. We have a population that is not self-reproducing at the same level as before,” reasoned New York Democrats.
Republicans have made the Southern border one of the three main focal points of the midterm elections, along with crime and inflation.
Schumer also rejected the theory that immigrants bring crime to America.
“Illegal immigrants, documented immigrants, have higher employment rates and lower crime rates than the average American.
Schumer told reporters in the Capitol ahead of a press conference that he hopes immigration reform will be worked out in the Senate during lame duck sessions through January.
In the next Congress, Democrats will retain a narrow majority of either one or two seats, depending on Georgia’s runoff vote.
“Now roll up your sleeves and let’s get this done. The Americans have sent a clear message [in the midterms]They rejected the outright anti-immigrant message of the MAGA Republicans,” Schumer said.
Senate Democrats have their sights set on a bill that would provide a pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients, who make up about 600,000 people in the United States.
DACA faced a number of legal challenges as the Trump administration attempted to end the program before the Supreme Court suspended it in 2020.
Last month, the circuit court ruled that DACA was illegal, but directed lower courts to consider the Biden administration’s rule. The Biden administration will allow his DACA to remain in place for current recipients without accepting new recipients. The case could go to the Supreme Court, where it could face an uphill battle with the conservative majority.
In the past, Republicans have expressed leniency in legislation to protect Dreamers, as DACA recipients are known, but demanded security measures to “close the borders” in exchange for help. .
Senator Alex Padilla (California Democrat) said privately that at least 10 Republicans have expressed interest in granting the Dreamers citizenship.
“We are calling on 10 of our Republican colleagues to have the courage to vote publicly in line with what they are telling us behind closed doors,” Padilla said.
Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin, chairman of the judiciary committee that handles immigration law, has asked Republicans to meet with him to discuss the DACA bill, calling it a December “top priority.” said.
According to Politico, immigration advocates have scheduled meetings this week with Republicans Pat Toomey, John Cornyn of Pennsylvania, John Cornyn of Texas, Mike Rounds of South Dakota and Mike Lee of Utah. and suggests who can vote alongside the Democrats.
