PRIMER: DANGEROUS HOUSE AMNESTY BILLS
Dangerous House Amnesty Bills as Border Crisis Intensifies (H.R. 6 and H.R. 1603)
Summary: The House of Representatives is expected to vote on two amnesty bills this week. The first, the American Dream and Promise Act (H.R.6), would confer amnesty to a minimum of two million illegal immigrants with some estimates going as high as 4.5 million. The second bill, the Farm Workforce Modernization Act (H.R. 1603), would provide another pathway to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant agriculture workers.
Issue Analysis and Implications
Both bills come amid a full-blown border crisis stemming from a series of harmful executive actions enacted by the Biden administration.
The American Dream and Promise Act of 2021 (H.R. 6)
The Farm Workforce Modernization Act of 2021 (H.R. 1603)
Conclusion: Both pieces of legislation are harmful to American families and American workers. They offer few protections against criminal illegal aliens, serve as a magnet for future waves of illegal immigration, endanger communities by further empowering violent drug cartels who maintain operational control of our southern border, and box out American workers to the benefit of the corporate K Street lobby in Washington D.C.
