Intensifying Alien Amnesties Threaten Environment--BALANCE Alert!
Last year, and in December, 2019, we were barely able to beat back the Open Borders crowd's Massive Alien Amnesty but we did!.
But, as we forecast, that crowd re-emerged this year with a GOP - sponsored
Mass Alien Amnesty. And since the sponsorship is bipartisan it is more likely to pass.....unless we stop it, which we can do, if we all publicize the horrific provisions of that Amnesty Bill set forth below. But before we reveal them we must say that we suffered a loss just last week.
SOME of the provisions of that new Amnesty Bill were included in the must-pass budget bill (to keep the government running ) passed just last week. We have not been able to review all 2,700 pages of that Bill, but that is in a way irrelevant, because we must all apply maximum pressure to oppose/revoke all amnesty provisions in the New Big Bill (H.R.6637)
We do know that that Budget Bill passed earlier this month included:
--- a doubling of the H2b Visas to be issued, thus greatly increasing the loss of job opportunities for Americans
---- Funding to transport 600,000 Aliens into the Interior many via Night time charter flights!!
---- Increased funding for ICE and CBP, BUT giving the Biden administration discretion re. whether to spend it or not!!
So consider the provisions of the GOP sponsored Mass Alien Amnesty Bill which is still pending including some of its more important Negative Environmental Impacts:
This Illegal Alien Amnesty Bill (H.R 6637) is, in most respects just as bad or worse as the earlier Mega-Amnesty, Bill but includes a few crumbs with which they hope to satisfy the restrictionists. Unfortunately, therefore, this "bipartisan" Bill has a greater chance of being enacted into law!! Help us stop it!!
The seven GOP Co-Sponsors include Congresswoman Maria Elvira Salazar (R-Fla.) who introduced the bill( The Dignity Act H.R.6637) alongside six Republican colleagues which provides amnesty for millions of illegal aliens in exchange for a few border security and immigration enforcement crumbs.
Rep. John Curtis (R-UT) CLAIMS that that Bill that gives amnesty to illegal aliens and expands pipelines for foreign visa workers will be a boost for business.“The Dignity Act” provides green cards to the nation’s (over 22 million) illegals while expanding visa programs to more readily outsource American jobs.
Curtis is co-sponsoring the bill alongside Reps. Dan Newhouse (R-WA), Pete Sessions (R-TX), Jenniffer Gonzalez-Colon (R-PR), Tom Reed (R-NY), and Peter Meijer (R-MI). --all up for reelection this year!! Predictably The bill is backed by the United States Chamber of Commerce and the Niskanen Center.
“… the Dignity Act balances the need for a secure and working border with compassionate policies that keep families together, ensures employers have access to reliable foreign workers, and welcomes people into our society and communities,” Curtis said in a statement.
[In fact, those "reliable foreign workers" displace Americans. Last October e.g. ALL job openings were taken by Immigrants (vdare.com/brimelow/Rubenstein)]
Curtis’s donors include mega multinational corporations like Comcast, Alphabet Inc., Berkshire Hathaway, and AT&T, among others, which have a vested financial interest in driving as many foreign nationals to the U.S. as possible. Such a Patriot that Rep. Curtis!!:):)
The plan’s amnesty provisions allow hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens to immediately secure green cards while millions of others are put on a 10-year track to obtain green cards while holding work permits.
Also included, are expansions of the H-2A and H-2B visa programs that deliver thousands of foreign workers to U.S. farms and seasonal employers every year. With the H-2B visa, the plan exempts returning foreign workers from the annual cap, while the H-2A visa provisions will make hiring foreign farmworkers easier Key Open Borders Provisions & others in The Dignity Act.
First, it creates a legal pathway to citizenship for “Dreamers,” AKA AMNESTY defined under the terms of the American Dream and Promise Act and also includes provisions from the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 1603) (both bills introduced earlier), which legalizes millions of illegal alien farmworkers and reduces protections for American workers in the already-unlimited H-2A visa program!!!
Rep. Salazar attempts a linguistic sweetner title for her proposed “Dignity Program” and “Redemption Program.” The Dignity Program creates a 10 year period in which illegal aliens not covered by the H.R. 6 or H.R. 1603 provisions receive work permits and protection from deportation so long as they do not commit crimes and pay $1,000 every year into an “American worker fund.”
This fund will, per the release, “provide grants to American citizens for workforce education initiatives, apprentice programs, and Career and Technical Education-- a sop to the restrictionists.”
However, the optional Redemption Program also gives illegal aliens the opportunity to earn a green card through 5 years of English and civics education as well as further restitution payments.
Another outrageous provision, is the expansion of the H-2B guestworker program via the inclusion of the H-2B Returning Worker Exemption ActThe H-2B guestworker program hires foreign workers at lower-than-average wages, providing employers with an incentive to avoid hiring Americans.
Mandatory E-Verify--one positive sop for restrictionists
The Dignity Act includes mandatory E-Verify through the use of the Legal Workforce Act first proposed by Rep. Ken Calvert (R-Calif.). However, The bill allows employers to phase into the program in stages, depending on the size of their company:
For example, agricultural employers – responsible for hiring a large number of illegal aliens – have 2.5 years to enroll their employees in E-Verify – a requirement likely to be extended.
Border Wall Construction and Investment--another good provision ASSUMING IT IS IMPLEMENTED BY THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION
The bill calls for restarting border wall contracts that the Biden administration ended when President Biden entered office. It also proposes implementing other border technologies, specifying “radar, cameras, infrared, secure communications, and autonomous detection technology.” The legislation also provides the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) with the ability to hire 3,000 additional border agents and personnel.
Asylum Processing Centers-- a Delusion which would not help stem the flow The bill would establish four regional processing centers to house aliens claiming asylum. Salazar claims that this would end catch-and-release policies while cases work their way through the immigration court system.
but it addresses a symptom of the problem rather than the cause itself. Holding aliens in detention during their immigration proceedings would stop catch-and-release, but only if you can hold all asylum claimants. Given the state of the border crisis, this is almost impossible. Since Joe Biden became president in January 2021, Border Patrol apprehended over 2 million illegal aliens at the border. The vast majority claimed asylum.
Are four processing centers going to house 2 million aliens at once? This is just for a single year. Detention centers could not possibly house all of the people who travel to the U.S. to claim asylum. Detaining aliens would lead to downstream effects on human trafficking, and numbers could lessen, but the point remains the same – there are too many people making fraudulent claims.
Without an enormous increase in immigration judges, those cases will further add to the growing backlog, increasing detention time. The bill includes adding 150 immigration judge teams and 300 asylum officers. The impact of that would still not be enough to meaningfully reduce backlogs, given current trends.
This is not a realistic way to end the border crisis. The cause of the crisis is our asylum laws, not a lack of detention space.--Asylum will continue to be a major loophole for determined illegal aliens, smugglers, and traffickers.
NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS;
--With 200,000 Illegals flooding monthly across the Border already, a Mass Amnesty would increase
---- the amount of Fentanyl deaths in the USA, already at record levels
---- increase the child Trafficking
---- increase the number of Covid infected in the USA
---- increase the power of The Cartels operating in the USA!
---- increase the number of Gang members (e.g. MS13) operating in the USA
---- INCREASE THE NUMBER OF COUNTIES ALREADY DRINKING TOILET TO TAP WATER!
(TWO IN CALIFORNIA ALREADY!)
..... all Threats to the Public Health and Public Safety Environments
---- And the sheer increase in numbers would increase the water shortages (population longages!!)
effects in California and the South and Midwest
--- And remember that for every person added to the U.S, population one acre farmland or Habitat (for the Critters) is lost to developed uses -- Habitat loss has been responsible for the extinction of several Butterfly and other species.
Conclusion Rep. Salazar’s Mass Alien Amnesty bill is basically mainly a con-job that open borders cheap labor Republicans plus Democrats can enact any time this year UNLESS WE STOP THEM.
So please help BALANCE stop The largest Illegal Alien Amnesty in U.S. History and end MASS legal immigration!

BALANCE can thereby Intensify its Mobilization of its Activists all over the USA to oppose this bill! BALANCE'S Activists like you give us Clout!
Also note that BALANCE is pro-Legal Immigrants but anti-Mass Immigration!
And Most Important to Note:
ONLY pushing BALANCE's all-categories-included zero Net MORATORIUM on Legal Immigration (which would still allow appx. 150,000 legal immigrants/year) MAXIMIZES the chances of stopping this Horrendous Amnesty Bill.
Pushing any less restrictive number, as the two National Mass Immigration Management Groups do, will likely result in a Compromise Bill reducing the numbers by just a few hundred thousand at most..... a totally unacceptable result.
Indeed, since those two National Mass Immigration Management groups refuse to support any Moratorium Bill (like Rep. Gosar's e.g.)
THEY ARE DE FACTO ENABLERS OF CONTINUING MASS IMMIGRATION!!
