President Biden wants a complete reversal of the Trump approach.
And just to put a punchline on the joke, he would spend billions on fake efforts to get at the “root” of the problem by sending money to Central America.
According to Fox News:
“The biggest ticket item is an eight-year path to citizenship for illegal immigrants — which the White House has estimated to be 11 million.
“But it’s just one of a number of items in a broad bill that would also see illegal immigrants farmworkers, Temporary Protected Status (TPS) recipients and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients immediately eligible for green cards. There would also be funding for counsel for children and vulnerable adults.”It would also open up legal pathways to immigration even further, including expanding the controversial green card lottery from 55,000 a year to 80,000 a year and exempting children and spouses from visa cap numbers.
“The bill would “recapture” unused visas from previous years to help clear backlogs, and increase visa caps. It also scraps the “unlawful presence bars” — bans on legal re-entry to the U.S. for those who have been in the country unlawfully.
“Separately the bill also includes $4 billion in funding to target what the administration describes as “root causes” for migration from south of the border.
“The bill contains significantly less on border security than previous efforts on bipartisan immigration reform, including funding for technology to expedite screening and enhance the ability of officials to identify contraband.”
