Biden Grants Benefits to Migrants Despite Federal Immigration Violations

GOP Leaders Slam President’s New Amnesty Policy as Illegal and Dangerous.

President Joe Biden announced a controversial new policy on Tuesday, granting legal status and a path to U.S. residency and citizenship to over 500,000 illegal aliens who have married American citizens and have lived in the country for at least ten years. This move comes despite Biden's claims of cracking down on illegal immigration.

“This action will allow them to file paperwork for legal status in the United States, allowing them to work while they remain with their families in the United States,” Biden stated. To qualify, illegal aliens must meet the 10-year residency requirement by June 17, 2024, or wait for future amnesty programs.

Key Points:

  • GOP Outrage: House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) criticized Biden for his contradictory stance on border security, accusing him of "granting amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens." Johnson argued that this policy would incentivize more illegal immigration and jeopardize American security.

  • Legal Challenges Expected: Johnson and Texas Governor Greg Abbott predicted that Biden's policy would face legal challenges and likely be struck down, as it contradicts the Immigration and Naturalization Act. Abbott compared it to the unsuccessful DAPA and DACA proposals from the Obama era.

  • Security Concerns: Abbott emphasized that the amnesty program would act as a magnet for more illegal immigration, exacerbating the current border crisis. He argued that the President should enforce existing laws rather than create new policies that bypass Congress.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott called Biden's plan “blatantly illegal” and a desperate attempt to garner votes. Abbott stated, “Rather than solving the border crisis he caused, President Biden’s mass amnesty will be another magnet to attract migrants to flood across our border illegally. President Biden needs to stop rewriting immigration law and start enforcing it.”

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) went further, highlighting the dangers posed by illegal aliens, including alleged ISIS terrorists entering through the southern border. Cruz asserted that Biden's priority is to secure future Democrat voters at the expense of American safety. “This amnesty program allows illegal aliens to get citizenship and vote in future elections,” Cruz said. He accused Biden of ignoring American suffering caused by crime and drug trafficking linked to illegal immigration.

Cruz denounced Biden’s border policies as a ruse, claiming that the President’s recent executive order on border security was merely a ploy for media propaganda ahead of the November election. “Offering mass amnesty will incentivize more illegal aliens to cross the border and will exacerbate the pain and suffering of the Americans that the Biden administration has left behind,” Cruz concluded.

Biden's latest policy has sparked significant backlash from Republican leaders, who argue that it undermines the rule of law and national security. As legal battles loom, the debate over immigration and border security continues to intensify.
