Joe Biden is just about ready to take office, and he reportedly has plenty of plans that he wants to implement as quickly as possible. This includes undoing some of Trump’s policies.
High on Biden’s priority list is his “path to citizenship” plan, which would allow 11 million undocumented residents to become official citizens. In fact, Kamala Harris says it’s his “first order of business.”
But Nikki Haley claims it’s a huge mistake.
The former U.N. ambassador says Biden will unveil this bill on Day 1, but it will inevitably backfire. Most importantly, she claims the bill absolutely does not put Americans first.
Beyond that, the bill actually goes against existing law and does little to address the current asylum issues.
Via Fox News:
Nikki Haley on Tuesday said that President-elect Joe Biden’s plan to give a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants would ‘undermine the rule of law’ while also failing to address problems with the asylum system — a sign of likely Republican opposition to the proposal.
Haley obviously is against the idea, and it’s quite possible that more Republicans will oppose this bill the instant it arrives.
She added that Biden’s proposal will “undermine the rule of law” and “fails to secure the U.S. border or address our badly broken asylum system.”
According to Biden’s plan, the “path to citizenship” would be about 8 years long, and The Washington Post says it would put undocumented individuals into a “protected status.”
While in this status, they’ll be on a 5-year path to a green card. Then, if they meet certain conditions (payment of taxes, background check, etc.), they’ll then be on a final 3-year path to citizenship.
The report adds that the proposal increases technology at the border, too.
But we don’t have any details on this just yet, and the bottom line is that liberals get what they want — they’ve been fighting for amnesty for years.
And given the Democrat control of the House and Senate, it’s likely Biden’s plan will be passed. It will still require 10 Republican votes in the Senate to pass, though.
Lastly, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) echoed Haley’s sentiments:
On Day 1 of his administration, President-elect Biden has said he plans to unveil an amnesty plan for 11 million immigrants in this nation illegally.
This comes at a time when millions of American citizens remain out of work and a new migrant caravan has been attempting to reach the United States.
We’ll have to wait and see what exactly Biden’s amnesty plan includes, and whether or not enough Republicans will back it in the Senate.
- Nikki Haley has condemned Joe Biden’s “path to citizenship” plan.
- She says it “undermines the rule of law” and doesn’t address our currently broken amnesty system.
- Biden’s plan offers an 8-year path, but it will need at least 10 Republicans to back the bill when it comes to the Senate.
