BALANCE ALERT! - December 2022
--Mass Alien Amnesty Bill Threatens Public Safety & Employment Environment Help stop It!
"Lame duck Congress poised to pass Massive Alien Amnesty & increase Legal Immigration!!!
A Bill being negotiated by Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) would give amnesty to illegal aliens enrolled in and eligible for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, AND to Millions more Illegals in the USA.
According to the Washington Post, Tillis and Sinema are negotiating a DACA amnesty plan that would provide green cards — and eventually naturalized American citizenship — to about two million illegal alien DACAs .many of whom are criminals (see below)
In addition, the Tillis-Sinema plan would build processing centers along the United States-Mexico border to more quickly send border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. interior, while keeping the public health authority known as Title 42 — used as a vital border control — temporarily in place., as a sop to restrictionists.
Consider how Americans continue to suffer from Mass Immigration
"We are the loved ones of those who were murdered by juveniles.
[T]here is such a well-funded advocacy effort underway to assist our loved ones’ killers, with no regard to how their advocacy affects us.
[They] are getting tons of attention and sympathy, while we, our murdered loved ones, and our families are ignored. We are further re-traumatized by the actions taken by advocates for our loved ones’ killers.
And would continue the horrors many of the immigrant children brought to the border by the Cartels suffer having had their Organs Harvested, having been enslaved, and/or have been subject to Sex Trafficking
However, re: the Violent DACA's who would also be admitted consider the following:
Executive Summary -- Center for immigration studies
"Juveniles commit a large number of serious offenses. In 2020, there were 1,353 known juvenile homicide offenders. In 2019, juveniles constituted 21 percent of all arrests for robbery, 20 percent for arson, 17 percent for car theft, 12 percent for burglary, 10 percent for larceny-theft and weapons offenses, eight percent for murder, and seven percent for aggravated assault. In 2012, the last year for which data is available, juveniles accounted for 14 percent of all arrests for forcible rape.
Despite the successful framing of DREAMers and DACA recipients as young people with no criminal records, it turns out that many were affiliated with gangs and many had arrest records when granted DACA benefits, and many others saw their DACA status terminated because of criminal activity. As USCIS has admitted, “[t]he truth is that we let those with criminal arrests for sexually assaulting a minor, kidnapping, human trafficking, child pornography, or even murder be provided protection from removal.”
Juvenile perpetrators are much more likely to be processed through a juvenile justice system than a criminal court. The Los Angeles County District Attorney made the decision (still largely in effect) to not send any juveniles to criminal court, no matter the gravity of their crimes.
Most juveniles adjudicated delinquent in juvenile court are not placed into any sort of out-of-home detention, including for such offenses as aggravated assault and robbery.
Congress has determined that all aliens (regardless of their immigration status) are subject to removal upon conviction for a wide range of crimes. Congress has also determined that aliens are subject to mandatory detention and are ineligible for a wide range of immigration benefits and relief upon conviction for a wide range of crimes.
However, aliens who are “adjudicated delinquent” in a juvenile court after having committed such offenses as minors are not subject to removal on this basis, or to mandatory detention or loss of eligibility for immigration benefits or relief on this basis.
Regardless of one’s views as to the “deservingness” as a general matter of illegal aliens brought to the U.S. as minors by their parents, brought to the U.S. by smugglers paid for by their parents, or who simply came to the U.S. on their own accord, those who are criminals (whether convicted in criminal court or adjudicated delinquent in juvenile court) should surely face immigration consequences. The lasting devastation to the lives of crime victims and their families is not wiped away simply because a perpetrator is a minor, even if that minor was “brought to the U.S. through no fault of their own.”
When a juvenile perpetrator is an alien, especially one not lawfully present, the consequences should not only entail “rehabilitation and treatment” through a federal or state juvenile court system, but also extend to the immigration realm. Congress should bar juveniles adjudicated delinquent from eligibility for any immigration benefit or relief, especially relief designed for those who arrived in the U.S. while minors. Congress should also give serious consideration to establishing a detention mandate and a ground of deportability for all aliens who have been adjudicated delinquent for the type of offense that would trigger mandatory detention or a ground of deportability had it resulted in a criminal conviction."

HOWEVER There are many supporters of a Mass Alien Amnesty of the over 30 Million Illegals currently in thee USA, from various groups in the 'Cheap Labor' Lobby:
For example, Neil Munro at Breitbart News reports on a bi-partisan effort to legalize millions of illegal aliens and to expand the current agricultural guest worker program, such as including full-time, year-round dairy workers.
'This is the best chance we’ve got of getting it done,' said one of the giveaway’s supporters, Rep. Mike Simpson (R-ID). 'I think this is becoming … the last hope,' he told an NPR reporter for a sympathetic November 8 radio segment.
The key player is Simpson’s Republican colleague, Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID,), the top Republican in the Senate’s agriculture committee.
But Crapo has held up the bill for more than a year amid much opposition from voters in his state. That holdup has been quietly supported by passive opposition from many Republican legislators.
Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) has made a vigorous push for the legislation, and she is not hesitant to point out that it is intended to benefit agribusinesses operators by keeping wages for farm workers depressed.
The bill implements a wage freeze for the year 2020 [for 250,000 H-2A visa workers]. This is a very important matter for employers, [and] wages are expected to increase by another seven to eight percent next year. Under this bill, those wage increases won’t happen
In that connection, the House has re-introduced, without an open hearing or meaningful debate during the lame duck session, the 2021 bill, called the Equal Access to Green Cards for Legal Employment (EAGLE) Act of 2022, H.R.3648., and its provisions are expected to be added on to the Tillis-Sinema Mass Alien Amnesty bill.
The EAGLE Act was drafted to benefit and reward the tech companies that have relied on lower-paid (and usually lower-skilled) visa workers to replace U.S. workers over the last 10-15 years.
The bill contains two main provisions. The first would scrap the so-called “per-country cap”. In order to preserve some semblance of diversity in our immigration, current law imposes a flexible cap on green cards, so that no country can get more than 7 percent of them, until all the current applications are approved, and then the leftovers go to people who have been waiting the longest. If the per-country cap were to be eliminated, then for at least the next 10 years, nearly all employment-based green cards would go to citizens of India, because they have obtained most of the temporary work visas (usually H-1b) for a very long time (and were sponsored by their employers for permanent status). A few would go to China, but anyone applying from a different country would have to wait until the 400,000-500,000 Indians and Chinese on the waiting list received their green cards. It’s a terrible idea. Already about 25 percent of the employment green cards go to citizens of India, it would not be ideal if nearly all of them did, because then employers wanting to bring in skilled workers from other countries would not be able to. The Indians and Chinese who are on the long waiting list still get to stay here and work, but under current rules they won’t get a green card until their turn is reached.
The second provision of the EAGLE Act that the tech companies have lobbied for allows all those who get a temporary visa and are sponsored for a green card by their employer to get a permanent work permit within two years after they apply, regardless of the annual caps on green cards. This is a terrible idea because the temporary work visa programs are so flawed and dysfunctional. We should not just be converting all of them to permanent work permits after two years. This is a gimmick to negate the annual caps that Congress has put on employment green cards to protect jobs for U.S. workers.
In effect both of these provisions depress wages and employment opportunities for Americans
In sumThat Tillis/Sinema/Crapo/ Lofgren et.al. Bill as now being drafted would likely not only legalize over 30 Million plus Illegal Aliens in toto and provide
Illegals with green cards and a path to citizenship, but ALSO remove many of the caps on legal immigration resulting in a dramatic increase/doubling of the pre-pandemic level of 1.5 Million per year. The costs to taxpayers (pre-pandemic $758 million per year NET of taxes immigrants pay) per Congressional district for legal immigration alone (CCN study), would be immense, not to mention the increased child trafficking, drug running and increased Cartel power, the legalization of the Illegals would increasingly facilitate

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!!
URGENT:Contact your U.S.Representatives and Senators repeatedly and urge them to oppose any Bill which contains ANY Amnesty Bill provisions, or any increase in legal immigration, and to support a zero-net Moratorium Bill
