GOP Introduces SUCCEED Amnesty Act: At Least 2.5 Million Illegal Aliens Are Eligible
While everyone’s freaking out about the NFL the GOP is going to grant amnesty to at least 2.5 million future Democrat voters.
This is what happens when you give ground on amnesty, Trump voters.
You say: “Well I’ll be okay with amnesty for these people as long as they are not given citizenship, we get a border wall, we get the RAISE act, etc.”
They say: “Okay, we’ll agree to amnesty, and we’ll give you a couple of drones and some cameras (will shortly be removed as soon as the new democrat supermajority takes over).”
So be prepared for more crap like this:
And I wonder if President Trump will be caught as flat footed as amnesty nutcase George W Bush was when two illegals jumped the fenc… Oops, I mean Trump’s wall, while talking about how the border doesn’t need a bunch more agents, just technology:
Don’t worry, they are just getting amnesty not citizenshi… Oh wait, they are getting that too.
Details of the bill, which is also sponsored by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), were obtained by POLITICO in advance of its release.
Under current law, green card holders can petition for close relatives such as a spouse or children to obtain permanent residency. But Trump has repeatedly slammed the concept of “chain migration,” a term critics use to describe U.S. citizens or permanent residents sponsoring their foreign relatives to come to the United States.
“CHAIN MIGRATION cannot be allowed to be part of any legislation on Immigration!” Trump tweeted earlier this month.
Tillis and Lankford have tried to address that demand by barring Dreamers who would obtain green cards through their legislation from petitioning family members, although they would be able to sponsor them if they become citizens, according to a person familiar with the legislation.
“The people are who moving through the green card process are people who’ve gone through the process legally over a period of time,” Tillis said, defending the provision targeting chain migration. “This is a special group of people that we want to provide a solution to, but not necessarily let them expedite the potential admission of other persons.”
Some of the nuts-and-bolts of the new GOP bill, which essentially creates a 15-year path to citizenship, are similar to other past proposals addressing the issue of young undocumented immigrants who came here as minors.
To be eligible under the Succeed Act, an immigrant must have been in the United States since June 15, 2012 — the start of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the Obama-era executive action that Trump said he would end — and before the age of 16. They would be required to obtain a high school diploma, pass a “thorough” criminal background check, submit biometric data to the Department of Homeland Security and pay off any back taxes or establish a repayment plan.
This will give the Dreamers a “conditional permanent residence” status, which they have to maintain for 10 years until they can apply for a formal green card. In that status, the Dreamers must either earn a college degree, serve in the military for at least three years or be consistently employed.
