Biden’s Amnesty Faces Harsh Criticism from Rep. Green

Congressman Mark Green Criticizes Biden's New Policy for Encouraging Illegal Immigration.

United States Representative Mark Green (R-TN), Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has fiercely criticized President Joe Biden's recent amnesty program. Green condemned the administration's decision to grant "parole amnesty" to approximately 550,000 illegal immigrants married to U.S. citizens who have been residing illegally in the country for over a decade. According to Green, this move "further legitimizes unlawful entry into our country."

  • The Biden administration's policy allows these illegal immigrants to receive green cards and, eventually, U.S. citizenship.

  • Green argued that this decision sends a clear message to potential border crossers that the U.S. is welcoming illegal entry.

  • Lora Ries from the Heritage Foundation highlighted that the parole statute has been distorted beyond its original intent of addressing extraordinary circumstances.

This policy decision follows another controversial move by the Biden administration, which dismissed the asylum proceedings of about 350,000 migrants. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) criticized this as a “covert mass amnesty program,” noting that these migrants no longer need to check in with authorities, allowing them to pursue other legal avenues to remain in the country.

Biden's approach to immigration has coincided with the most severe illegal immigration crisis in U.S. history. Key statistics include:

  • Over 9.5 million nationwide encounters with illegal immigrants.

  • An estimated 1.7 million illegal immigrants have evaded capture.

These figures contribute to the foreign-born population in the U.S. reaching an all-time high of 51.6 million people, driven primarily by illegal immigration under Biden's tenure.

The scale of this crisis underscores the need for strong leadership and adherence to the rule of law to safeguard the nation’s borders and integrity.
