House Democrats voted last week to support a bill to permit Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients the ability to work in the U.S. Congress. The move would legalize hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants to work in the nation’s Capitol building.
“The bill includes language permitting the Legislative Branch agencies it funds to employ Dreamers … who hold employment authorization under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program,” a summary of the bill read, according to Breitbart News.
“I am also pleased that we are helping ensure our workforce reflects the diversity of our nation, including by increasing funding for paid internships and allowing DACA recipients to work in the halls of Congress,” Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) said in a statement.
The bill now moves to the Senate for approval.
The move shows how quickly the nation’s immigration efforts have changed. Less than a year ago, the government was building a wall across the nation’s southern border and illegal immigration was the lowest it had been in several years.
Just six months into President Joe Biden’s administration and a House and Senate led by Democrats, we’ve had more than one million illegal immigrants cross the southern border. The border wall’s construction has been stopped.
And now Congress wants illegal immigrants to legal work as their own staff members.
Don’t forget, this isn’t even the end game. The Biden administration’s proposed $3.5 trillion budget still includes a proposal for the amnesty of millions of illegal immigrants that includes a pathway for citizenship.
Many have long joked about Democrats importing future voters, but the idea is no longer a laughing matter. Instead, the effort is near reality.
And in case you’ve forgotten, both Washington, D.C. and Puerto Rico continue to be pushed as new states by Democrats. In theory, it may not be a bad idea to add new states. However, the leftist push clearly reveals Democrat bias. For example, D.C. voted 90 percent for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Making the District of Columbia a state would almost certainly add two new Democratic Senators and at least two new Democratic House members.
Puerto Rico also leans largely Democrat. The mostly Hispanic territory would do the same, offering at least four new Democratic lawmakers.
No wonder the left wants to push statehood. The move would nearly provide enough new senators to override the current Senate filibuster and allow Democrats to push through any new radical legislation.
Don’t forget the packing the court movement, too. Biden’s group is busy at work to “study” whether the court should add more justices would only benefit the left. With the current 6-3 conservative majority, adding any new justices while Democrats are in power would push against one of the last remaining barriers to full-blown leftism in the nation’s highest court.
The move to bring DACA recipients to Capitol Hill may sound compassionate, as it focuses on children brought into the nation when they were young. But this is not the end game. It is only the starting point. If we want to protect a conservative future for America, we must focus on legal immigration and laws that function accordingly.
