Immigrants Sent $140 Billion From U.S. Back To Homelands in 2016

Legal and illegal immigrants wired almost $140 billion from the United States back to their home countries and foreign relatives in 2016.

The huge loss of domestic spending by of immigrants’ remittances is spotlighted in a new report by the Pew Research Center, which also noted that $6.5 billion was sent back to the United States by foreign-based U.S. workers. That is a 21-fold difference and is enough money to support 2.6 million additional $50,000 jobs in the United States.
The remittance number is based on calculations by the World Bank.
The leading recipients of the exported remittances are people in Mexico, China, and India, reflecting the growing size of Chinese and Indian migration into the United States. Many of the Chinese and Indian migrants work in once-prestigious, but now lower-wage, white-collar science or computer jobs.
The annual drain of $140 billion is only 0.75 percent of the $18,624 billion U.S. economy in 2016. Also, the money does eventually zigzag its way back to the United States as foreign families spend those dollars to buy products, some of which are American.
But the huge scale of foreign remittances adds to the economic losses and redistributions imposed by the federal policy of goosing economic growth with the large-scale immigration of 1 million workers and consumers every year.
Four million Americans turn 18 each year and begin looking for good jobs in the free market.
But the federal government inflates the supply of new labor by annually accepting roughly 1.1 million new legal immigrants (including roughly 750,000 working-age migrants), by providing work-permits to roughly 3 million resident foreigners, and by doing little to block the employment of roughly 8 million illegal immigrants.
The Washington-imposed economic policy of economic growth via mass-immigration floods the market with foreign laborspikes profits and Wall Street values by cutting salaries for manual and skilled labor offered by blue-collar and white-collar employees. It also drives up real estate priceswidens wealth-gaps, reduces high-tech investment, increases state and local tax burdens, hurts kids’ schools and college education, pushes Americans away from high-tech careers, and sidelines at least 5 million marginalized Americans and their families, including many who are now struggling with opioid addictions.
The cheap-labor policy has also reduced investment and job creation in many interior states because the coastal cities have a surplus of imported labor. For example, almost 27 percent of zip codes in Missouri had fewer jobs or businesses in 2015 than in 2000, according to a new report by the Economic Innovation Group. In Kansas, almost 29 percent of zip codes had fewer jobs and businesses in 2015 compared to 2000, which was a two-decade period of massive cheap-labor immigration.
Because of the successful cheap-labor strategy, wages for men have remained flat since 1973, and a large percentage of the nation’s annual income has shifted from employees to investors.


The draft amnesty will also serve as complete proof in November that Trump’s voters’ wrongly placed their trust in his August 2016 promise to block any amnesty: (SEE LINK).

"But the taxpayers’ costs also act as a $26 billion stimulus for business which will provide the migrants with medical services, apartments, entertainment, food, and transport. The continued inflow of the 4 million chain-migrants, however, is a vastly greater benefit for business and burden for American workers." NEIL MUNRO


A county by county chart:       

According to the nonpartisan Center for Immigration Studies, the deportations occurred between October 2008 and February 2015. The three counties with the most deportations during this period were Los Angeles County, Calif.; Maricopa County, Ariz.; and Harris County, Texas.


Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in 2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the 18th Street gang, were illegal aliens.

Adios, Sanctuary La Raza Welfare State of California
A fifth-generation Californian laments his state’s ongoing economic collapse.
By Steve Baldwin
American Spectator, October 19, 2017
What’s clear is that the producers are leaving the state and the takers are coming in. Many of the takers are illegal aliens, now estimated to number over 2.6 million. 
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that California spends $22 billion on government services for illegal aliens, including welfare, education, Medicaid, and criminal justice system costs. 


Liberals claim they more than make that up with taxes paid, but that’s simply not true. It’s not even close. FAIR estimates illegal aliens in California contribute only $1.21 billion in tax revenue, which means they cost California $20.6 billion, or at least $1,800 per household.

Nonetheless, open border advocates, such as Facebook Chairman Mark Zuckerberg, claim illegal aliens are a net benefit to California with little evidence to support such an assertion. As the Center for Immigration Studies has documented, the vast majority of illegals are poor, uneducated, and with few skills. How does accepting millions of illegal aliens and then granting them access to dozens of welfare programs benefit California’s economy? If illegal aliens were contributing to the economy in any meaningful way, California, with its 2.6 million illegal aliens, would be booming.
Furthermore, the complexion of illegal aliens has changed with far more on welfare and committing crimes than those who entered the country in the 1980s. 
Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in 2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the 18th Street gang, were illegal aliens. Granted, those statistics are old, but if you talk to any California law enforcement officer, they will tell you it’s much worse today. The problem is that the Brown administration will not release any statewide data on illegal alien crimes. That would be insensitive. And now that California has declared itself a “sanctuary state,” there is little doubt this sends a message south of the border that will further escalate illegal immigration into the state.
"If the racist "Sensenbrenner Legislation" passes the US Senate, there is no doubt that a massive civil disobedience movement will emerge. Eventually labor union power can merge with the immigrant civil rights and "Immigrant Sanctuary" movements to enable us to either form a new political party or to do heavy duty reforming of the existing Democratic Party. The next and final steps would follow and that is to elect our own governors of all the states within Aztlan." 
Indeed, California goes out of its way to attract illegal aliens. The state has even created government programs that cater exclusively to illegal aliens. For example, the State Department of Motor Vehicles has offices that only process driver licenses for illegal aliens. With over a million illegal aliens now driving in California, the state felt compelled to help them avoid the long lines the rest of us must endure at the DMV. 
And just recently, the state-funded University of California system announced it will spend $27 million on financial aid for illegal aliens. They’ve even taken out radio spots on stations all along the border, just to make sure other potential illegal border crossers hear about this program. I can’t afford college education for all my four sons, but my taxes will pay for illegals to get a college education.


77 Illegal Aliens, Including Children, Found in Sweltering ‘UPS Truck’

Federal authorities detained two illegal aliens and one U.S. citizen on Monday after a California Highway Patrol officer pulled over a suspicious brown delivery truck and found it to be stuffed with 77 profusely sweating illegal aliens, including five children.

The brown truck, which had the appearance of a UPS truck, had no tags and was weaving down Old Highway 80 in San Diego when the officer noticed it and performed a traffic stop. The San Diego Union-Tribune reported that a U.S. Border Patrol agent who was passing by stopped to offer assistance to the officer.
The agent noticed the truck was riding very low. He noticed fresh paint on the truck and could smell a mix of body odor and a commonly used Mexican soap, according to the report, which cited court documents filed in San Diego federal court on Tuesday.
The driver, U.S. citizen Shawn Lee Seiler, allegedly told authorities that he was the truck’s owner and consented to a search of the vehicle. Upon opening the back doors of the truck, the agent discovered 77 illegal aliens, sweating profusely. San Diego has been experiencing warm winter weather in recent days —  more than ten degrees above average, according tolocal NBC 7.
Seiler reportedly admitted that he is a human smuggler. The complaint stated that he told investigators that he originally expected to be trafficking 50 illegal aliens and that he would be paid $100 dollars a head, which would mean a $5,000 payout. Instead, 77 were stuffed into the vehicle.
Seiler was arrested for transporting illegal aliens for financial gain. Two of the 77 illegal aliens were detained and will be charged, as they had prior deportations, one on January 9 through San Ysidro and the other on May 14, 2015 at El Paso according to the Union-Tribune. The remaining 75 foreign nationals were detained as material witnesses in the case.
In a similar case, Border Patrol agents in South Texas caught a human smuggler trying to sneak 22 illegal aliens in a tractor-trailer through the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint on December 31, according to reporting by Breitbart Texas.
Last October, a truck driver pleaded guilty to “Transporting Undocumented Aliens Resulting in Death” after transporting around 200 illegal aliens in his tractor-trailer in Texas. Ten of those, locked for hours in the trailer, died in the severe Texas heat.

Over 100 Migrants Found Dying of Asphyxiation in Tractor-Trailer Headed for Texas

CIUDAD VICTORIA, Tamaulipas — The discovery of over 100 migrants headed to Texas took place at a military checkpoint just 30 minutes north of Ciudad Victoria, the capital of Tamaulipas. According to information released by Mexico’s National Immigration Institute (INM), the discovery became a rescue operation once authorities realized the health conditions of the migrants.

According to immigration officials, the migrants showed signs of acute dehydration and asphyxia leading authorities to rush medical personnel to the scene to provide needed care. The ones that showed the worst signs were 39 underage teens and children, of those, 10 were unaccompanied.
The migrants have been identified as all being from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. Authorities arrested Mexican nationals Ruben “N” and Orbelin “N” who have been singled out as the drivers and human smugglers.
The suspects claimed to have left the southern state of Chiapas and to have been headed to the U.S-Mexico border. The migrants were taken to Mexico’s Attorney General’s Office in Ciudad Victoria so INM could contact their respective consulates and carry out their deportations. The suspects were taken to the same building, but are facing federal charges.

'Dreamers' and Demons


Democrats at President Trump's State of the Union address refused to honor the parents of two girls in New York who were hunted down and beaten to death by a pack of MS-13 gang members -- and the parents are angry about it. According to Fox News,...: Their failure to honor the two black families of girls murdered by illegals at President Trump's SOTU may well be a turning point with some visible results in November.

In their love for illegals, Democrats pitch the black community overboard

Democrats at President Trump's State of the Union address refused to honor the parents of two girls in New York who were hunted down and beaten to death by a pack of MS-13 gang members -- and the parents are angry about it. According to Fox News, some Democrats may have actually booed them.
In the Democrats' minds, it's all about staying on message. The killers were illegal immigrants and therefore were to be defended no matter what they did, because championing and encouraging illegal immigration is now the sole defining Democratic issue.
But this case is interesting because it pits them squarely against the black community, where the girls were from. It's a dilemma for them because there's no choosing here, the only right course of action is to support justice for the girls and comfort for the grieving parents. Trump got the tone just right in his SOTU speech honoring and comforting them.
And yet, incredibly, the Democrats, including even the congressional Black Caucus, sat stone-faced, glaring, maybe booing, and refused to honor them.
According to GatewayPundit, one of the parents, Robert Mickens, told radio host Laura Ingraham:
“I thought it was very disrespectful. For the simple fact that the Democrats who were there and did not stand up, they were African-Americans. So that hurt me a lot… Regardless of how they feel about the president, they should show the respect, because I would show them the respect if that was their loved one.”
  Since Democrats have made their party about identity politics and special interest groups, rather than ideas, they apparently can no longer recognize ideas, even the simplest ones about right and wrong. Having made that bed, they are now forced to lie in it - they are being forced to choose between interest groups.
The black community has reliably voted Democrat for decades, and it now seems that they are being taken for granted. No wonder Democrats are losing support from that quarter. Black citizens are being hit hardest by low-wage illegal immigrants flowing in and driving down wages, which hurts them most of all. They are also being targeted for abortion and have some of the highest abortion rates, which is devastating to a community. They are always in the middle of it when MS-13 crime rolls in from abroad, subject to its violence, and being forced to pay the price time and again. Seriously, as past Democrat administrations identified waves of illegal gang members pouring in as 'unaccompanied children' the sweetness of that misleading characterization has enabled gang members such as the MS-13 charmers who took two girls' lives based on a Facebook argument with one, are actually being allowed in schools, as President Trump pointed out, again, hurting the black community worst of all.
As black citizens watched that State of the Union and noted the rude behavior of the Democrats toward the two black families. how is this going to play out among them at election time? Are they really going to be motivated to vote for Democrats? Republicans are already rising in the polls because of the speech, as well as because of their tax cut, which has created the lowest black unemployment in history.
With Democrats refusing to extend even the most cursory of sympathies to the two black families in front of the entire country, it's worth it to watch how blacks support them in the polls. Democrats have pitched blacks overboard. Obviously, there are no limits on what Democrats will do to champion illegals and black people are noticing. There may be some well deserved payback at midterms

Pelosi: Trump’s SOTU Immigration Remarks Are ‘Dangerous’

Wednesday during a press conference discussing President Donald Trump’s comments on immigration last night during his State of the Union address, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) condemned them as “dangerous.”
Pelosi said, “Without any bases on evidence data or the rest he makes these statements about newcomers to our country equating it in a criminal way. What was that about? What was that about last night?”
She added, “It was – I would say confusing, it was worse than that, it was dangerous what he said last night. And it has instilled fear. As I say over and over what he is doing brings tears to the eyes of the Statue of Liberty and instills fear into the hearts of people who are concerned about our DREAMers.”

Illegal Alien MS-13 Member Arrested in Drive-By Shooting Case

Officials in Georgia arrested an MS-13 member in connection with a drive-by shooting. The defendant, Walter Alex Flores-Sanchez, aka “El Adicto” (Spanish for “the Addict”) is an illegal alien.

A police warrant says the shooting was retaliation against a suspected member of the Crips gang, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
Prosecutors charged Flores-Sanchez with various felonies, including aggravated assault and gang involvement. He has been living in Marietta, Georgia.
A warrant states that after Flores-Sanchez allegedly fired four shots at a 15-year-old boy, “several of the people in the vehicle displayed gang hand signs and cheered.”
Officials say there were several juvenile witnesses, and a video recorded from inside of the vehicle capturing part of the crime.
Flores-Sanchez is being held in the Cobb County jail without bond and officials have notified Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). ICE immigration officers issued a detainer on the suspect.
Breitbart Texas reached out to ICE officials for more information about the illegal immigrant gang member’s immigration history. It is not known at this time where and when Flores-Sanchez entered the U.S. or if he entered as an unaccompanied minor. It is also not known if the suspect applied for or received protection under President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty program. ICE officials were not immediately available for a response.
During his State of the Union address on Tuesday night, President Trump recognized the parents of two teenage girls who were murdered by MS-13 members in Long Island, New York, in September 2016. The president said, “Many of these gang members took advantage of glaring loopholes in our laws to enter the country as illegal, unaccompanied alien minors, and wound up in Kayla and Nisa’s high school.”
Six MS-13 gang members have been charged with the brutal slayings of Kayla Cuevas (16) and Nisa Mickens (15). The girls were hacked and beaten to death with machetes and baseball bats.
Officials say that the defendants belonged to an MS-13 clique that came to Long Island from El Salvador. Most, if not all, of the gang members in question are illegal aliens.
President Trump told those watching during the State of the Union address:
Tonight, I am calling on Congress to finally close the deadly loopholes that have allowed MS-13, and other criminal gangs, to break into our country. We have proposed new legislation that will fix our immigration laws and support our ICE and Border Patrol agents.
Last July when speaking to law enforcement officers in Brentwood, New York, the President promised “to destroy the vile criminal cartel MS-13 and many other gangs,” Breitbart News reported. President Trump also referred to gang members as “animals.”

Mark Levin: Trump's plan will give citizenship to 11 million illegal aliens

I watched with horror as President Trump, giving his State of the Union address,announced how proud he was to be calling for amnesty for nearly three times the number of illegal aliens that Obama had.
The first pillar of our framework generously offers a path to citizenship for 1.8 million illegal immigrants who were brought here by their parents at a young age -- that covers almost three times more people than the previous administration.
Trump feels that he has done even better than Obama in offering amnesty for illegals. I think on this issue it would be better to have Obama back, as he's to the right of Trump on the amnesty issue.
Under our plan, those who meet education and work requirements, and show good moral character, will be able to become full citizens of the United States.
Have you ever heard of anyone denied citizenship because of education, work status, or moral character? Do you think whoever is president, long after Trump is gone from office, will deny citizenship to any illegal based on their "moral character"? We have citizens who can't even speak English!
But it's even worse than that. As Mark Levin said on his show last night, (at the 41 minute mark)
"It's not legalization for 800,000 DACA, it's not citizenship for 1.8 million, it is 11 million amnesty citizenship. Some of my colleagues think this is an act of genius because it exposes the Democrats. It doesn't expose them to anything. This is their base, this is what they want."
How do we get from 1.8 million to 11 million? Simple. Because under Trump's plan, chain migration will not end for years.
The outline says that no new applications for the visa lottery and the chain-migration categories would be accepted, limiting family immigration to spouses and minor children. Great! But it also provides for the continuation of those categories (and reallocation of the lottery visas) until the admission of all 4 million people on the current chain-migration waiting lists. This is the same gimmick that was in the Hagel-Martinez amnesty bill in 2007 – and the estimate at the time was that it would take 17 years before all those people got their green cards. In other words, legal immigration would not actually be reduced until after President Kamala Harris’s successor took office.
Whether it's four million more or nine million or another large number, the point is that the "grandfathering" or those already on the waiting list and the addition of nearly two million more illegals who in turn will bring in even more "immediate relatives" (who in turn will bring in even more, hence the chain aspect) will mean amnesty for millions more.
Levin also makes a point that whatever Trumps gets in return, such as funding for a border wall or an eventual end to chain migration years down the road, can be undone by the next president, but amnesty is immediate, in the present, and cannot be changed.
Levin lamented that "Trump cultists" and "clapping seals" will love Trump's plan, seeing it as a secret strategy to somehow get border security without granting amnesty, but Levin says that those who believe this are incorrect. He calls on conservatives to speak out now to "pull the President back" to a conservative position so the mass amnesty will not occur.

But the business community will have little reason to defend Trump, partly because they have gotten their double-shot of tax cuts and cheap labor. In fact, the legislation does not sunset the amnesty, meaning it can be quietly expanded with a few legal tweaks that can be attached to any of the myriad obscure bills annually passed by Congress.


 “According to the Centers for Immigration Studies, April '11, at least 70% of Mexican illegal alien families receive some type of welfare in the US!!!”

 Will Trump Preside Over Largest Amnesty Ever Seen in This Country, The World?MAGA: "My Amnesty Give-Away"

How Did We Get Here?

By Dan Cadman on January 26, 2018

In past weeks, there has been an increasingly strident debate over immigration "reform", particularly in the Senate, which has repeatedly exhibited paralysis (because of self-imposed filibuster and cloture rules requiring 60 votes to get anything done, rather than a simple majority). The impasse has led to inability to pass a budget for the fiscal year that's now half over, and the Democratic minority has used the opportunity to engage in fiscal hostage-taking to demand an amnesty for illegal aliens. A select number of Republicans, whose views on immigration mirror those of the Democrats, have joined in the effort.
The shape and size of the amnesty is amorphous, with the proposals growing ever larger, though the nucleus was supposedly to legalize the 700,000 or so aliens who benefited from the constitutionally questionable Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program instituted by the Obama administration.
Donald Trump on the campaign trail said he would end DACA because it was clearly an example of executive overreach. His position shifted as president: Instead, DACA was to be phased out over a period of many months, with two-year renewals being given in the interim. Trump then opened Pandora's box by inviting Congress to legislate the problem away (they had considered and rejected such legislation in the past, which is one reason Obama took matters into his own hands by implementing the equivalent of an imperial decree).
Trump went so far as to say that he would consider reopening the program if Congress failed to act – a threat he has repeated in recent days, despite earlier acknowledgements that the program was illegal and unconstitutional, and despite the fact that he is undercutting his own Justice Department, which is litigating the DACA shutdown in federal court.
How did we get here? The answer to that lies in the mid-1980s.
It was Republican president Ronald Reagan who firmly stood behind, and ultimately signed into law, the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986, which contained a massive amnesty that forgave and provided lawful status to roughly 2.7 million illegal aliens from nations all over the world.
The legalization provisions were billed as a one-time, never-again amnesty, because IRCA was a "great compromise" that included enforcement measures which would ensure no more massive build-ups of aliens living illegally in the United States.
IRCA was a massive failure. The enforcement provisions were pretty much prospective in nature, providing for a gradual phase-in, and IRCA didn't in fact appropriate funds for resources needed at the border, in the interior, or in the workplace, to make it a success.
In fact, funding never came. Despite promises made to garner amnesty, once it was in place, enforcement suffered absolute neglect. In the out years following IRCA, there was a failure of political will in the legislative and executive branches; the capital and human resources weren't sought and weren't apportioned to interior or worksite enforcement efforts, and those given the border were too little, too late. I recall many years while employed at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) when there were fewer than 1,000 investigators. At the time, there were more Capitol Police officers guarding Congress than there were INS agents charged with conducting all enforcement work in the interior of the entire United States.
Even the amnesty provisions were of questionable value, and became the source of nearly 30 years of litigation by applicants who appealed denials of legalization. What is more, the program was overwhelmed with fraud at giant regional processing centers where examiners labored endlessly without any personal interaction with the applicants, for instance to determine credibility or press questions about documents or affidavits submitted. They became the equivalent of diploma mills, in this case the "diploma" being a green card to the happy recipients.
The result of IRCA's failure, and the unwillingness to fund and support viable immigration enforcement, is in front of our eyes: instead of diminishing through attrition and compliance, the illegal population ballooned after the IRCA amnesty "reset" to its present level of 11 or 12 million. What's more, about half of the illegal-alien population of the U.S. consists of visa overstays, not border jumpers. Yet our visa-issuing policies and port inspection processes remain ossified and ineffectual.
We are beset with intractable issues involving parents who over the years smuggled their children here in the hundreds of thousands, with no effective effort to put a stop to this dangerous, parentally negligent practice; and the border is as wild and unpoliceable as ever. In fact, enforcement statistics from Fiscal Year 2017 show that nearly half of all border apprehensions involved minors and family units. This should be a wake-up call to anyone who thinks that an amnesty today won't be needed again in a few short years. On the contrary, calls for amnesty act as a beacon to others to begin their trek northward in hopes of cashing in, by fair means or foul.
Into this mix strode Donald Trump, riding a wave of populist sentiment to the White House. His rallying cry was Make America Great Again (MAGA), and his popularity was based in large measure on his promise to restore the rule of law to immigration enforcement. Then came his public DACA turnaround, which no doubt came as a great surprise to his supporters and, as surely as night follows day, we are now witnessing the inevitable fallout from that utterance.
It has led to a hue and cry that Congress and the president must again hit the amnesty re-set button, although this time around one doesn't hear the "just this time, then never again" promise made so vociferously in the past. Advocates don't think they need to make it, and politicians who purport to be in favor of amnesty only in return for enforcement trade-offs aren't quite so eager to put their reputations on the line with such assurances, though they plod doggedly forward as if they must pass legislation, however poorly crafted.
In response to a plaintive call from members of Congress (mostly senators), the White House has now issued a set of principles that form its framework for what would be acceptable before the president would be amenable to signing immigration legislation that includes an amnesty. The framework is, in a word, disappointing.
By the White House's own estimates, the amnesty would cover nearly two million aliens. There are substantial reasons to think this is a significant underestimate, based on the nation's experience with IRCA. Fraud alone could increase that estimate by 20 or 30 percent. Then there are the methodologies used to arrive at the figure – like those used by the Congressional Budget Office, there is likely a "fudge factor" based on aliens who will not apply, or will be denied, that in the hard light of day won't hold up, which in turn means that the figure is pretty much an unreliable lowball.
One begins to wonder whether MAGA still stands for Make America Great Again, or has instead morphed into "My Amnesty Give-Away".
It would appear that this president, who campaigned on promises to restore integrity to the immigration system, is quite possibly set to preside over the largest amnesty ever seen in this country, perhaps even the world.

Trump’s Draft Amnesty: Citizenship for Illegal Alien Population Six Times the Size of Obama’s DACA

President Trump’s amnesty plan would potentially give a pathway to U.S. citizenship to an illegal alien population that is roughly six times the number of illegal aliens that were given temporary amnesty under former President Obama.

An almost final draft of the White House’s expansive amnesty plan obtained by Breitbart News reveals that the Trump administration would be expanding Obama’s federal, temporary amnesty—known as the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program—to six times the number of illegal aliens who are enrolled in the DACA.
Former Koch brothers executive Marc Short, who previously led the failed “Never Trump” effort inside the pro-mass immigration billionaires’ network, helped craft the White House amnesty plan, along with Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and senior adviser Stephen Miller.
The White House amnesty plan estimates that about 1.8 million illegal aliens will be eligible for a pathway to U.S. citizenship under their proposal. But, based on estimates from the 1986 amnesty, citizenship for 1.8 million illegal aliens would only be the starting point of the White House amnesty.
The 1986 amnesty was designed to give 400,000 illegal alien agricultural workers amnesty. After being enacted, though, about 1.1 million illegal aliens ended up getting amnesty, implying that 700,000 illegal aliens fraudulently received amnesty, as noted by the Center for Immigration Studies.
Should this pattern be the same for the White House’s amnesty plan, the low estimate of 1.8 million illegal aliens receiving a pathway to U.S. citizenship will quickly and likely become 4.5 million illegal aliens eventually obtaining citizenship.
Currently, there are nearly 800,000 illegal aliens enrolled in Obama’s DACA program. The White House amnesty plan would potentially sextuple this number of illegal aliens receiving amnesty and a pathway to citizenship.
Likewise, as Breitbart News reported, it is plausible for the White House plan to become entirely open-ended and thus never-ending, much like the 1986 amnesty, critics and experts say.
A copy of the White House amnesty obtained by Breitbart News reveals that the DHS secretary would have nearly all control over the size and implementation of the amnesty with no end date for when illegal aliens can no longer apply for the pathway to citizenship.
The expansive amnesty attempts to contain the amnesty population by requiring education, good moral character, and time period constraints and provisions. But, the expansive amnesty’s requirements are low and not rigorous, leaving the amnesty open to massive amounts of fraud, like the 1986 amnesty.
Also included in the White House amnesty draft:
  • A more than 10-year wait before legal immigration levels are reduced to provide much-needed relief and wage increases to America’s working and middle class
  • No immediate end to the wage-crushing importation of blue-collar and white-collar foreign workers
  • A repurposing of the 50,000 visas that currently import foreign nationals through the Visa Lottery
  • $25 billion to fund the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border
  • No provisions to enact mandatory E-Verify, which would ban employers from hiring illegal aliens
  • No provisions to end or punish sanctuary cities, which protect and harbor criminal illegal aliens
  • No provisions to deal with the issue of ending birthright citizenship, where at least 4.5 million children have received U.S. citizenship despite their parents being illegal aliens
The amnestying of 4.5 million illegal aliens under the White House amnesty would mean an instant depression of American workers’ wages and an enormous increase in the number of now-legalized foreign workers that Americans will have to compete for jobs against in the workforce.
Every year, the U.S. admits more than 1.5 foreign nationals, with the vast majority deriving from family-based chain migration, whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. In 2016, the legal and illegal immigrant population reached a record high of 44 million. By 2023, the Center for Immigration Studies estimates that the legal and illegal immigrant population of the U.S. will make up nearly 15 percent of the entire U.S. population.
Mass immigration has come at the expense of America’s working and middle class, which has suffered from poor job growth, stagnant wages, and increased public costs to offset the importation of millions of low-skilled foreign nationals.
Four million young Americans enter the workforce every year, but their job opportunities are further diminished as the U.S. imports roughly two new foreign workers for every four American workers who enter the workforce. Even though researchers say 30 percent of the workforce could lose their jobs due to automation by 2030, the U.S. has not stopped importing more than a million foreign nationals every year.
For blue-collar American workers, mass immigration has not only kept wages down but in many cases decreased wages, as Breitbart News reported. Meanwhile, the U.S. continues importing more foreign nationals with whom working-class Americans are forced to compete. In 2016, the U.S. brought in about 1.8 million mostly low-skilled immigrants.
For white-collar American workers, mass immigration has become a tool for the big business lobby, cheap labor industry, and Silicon Valley elites to replace U.S. citizens with cheaper foreign workers. For example, as Breitbart News reported, 71 percent of tech workers in coveted high-paying, white-collar Silicon Valley jobs are foreign-born, while the tech industry in the San Francisco, Oakland, and Hayward area is made up of 50 percent foreign-born tech workers.
The White House amnesty plan was crafted despite recent Harvard-Harris polling revealing the massive popularity of Trump’s pro-American immigration agenda, including reducing legal immigration levels, building a border wall, and ending the mass importation of naturalized citizens’ foreign relatives.
For example, 85 percent of black Americans, who have been disproportionately impactedby mass immigration to the U.S., want Trump’s merit-based legal immigration system that would cut current legal immigration levels in half to raise Americans’ wages and bring English-proficient, highly-educated immigrants to the U.S., rather than low-skilled foreign nationals who put downward pressure on black Americans’ wages.
The White House amnesty plan does not immediately reduce mass legal immigration levels, allowing more than 1 million immigrants to continue arriving in the U.S. over the course of potentially two decades. This portion of the amnesty plan is particularly not in-line with what American voters say they want in a legal immigration system.
The Harvard-Harris poll found that more than 80 percent of Americans want legal immigration levels curbed, while previous polling by Pulse Opinion Research found that 60 percent of Americans say they prefer a legal immigration system that admits 500,000 legal immigrants a year or less.
If the U.S. does not reduce current legal immigration levels in the next two decades, between seven and eight million foreign-born voters will be added to the American electorate, as Breitbart News reported, potentially making states like Texas, Florida, and Virginia solid Democrat voting blocs, as immigrants are vastly more likely to vote for Democrats over Republicans.
The Hispanic vote in Texas will continue to increase. By 2024 Democrats can win Texas, Arizona and Florida. A big blue wall of 78 electoral votes. 
Democrats like the former Mayor of San Antonio, Julian Castro, now openly admit that mass immigration to the U.S. is a Democrat-voter initiative.

Are We Heading for an Immigration Sellout?

If I’d told you 2 years ago journalists would scramble to “report” on the allegation President Donald Trump wanted to fire Special Counsel Robert Mueller seven months ago like it A) just happened, and B) actually happened (as in he was fired), you would’ve thought I was lying to you. But it’s all too real, and someone will likely win a journalism award for it.
But in an age of frantic reporting over rumors, lies, and non-stories, the pearl-clutching class chose a faux-scandal over some real news – that the White House is open to selling out on immigration. Oh, they mentioned it, but it wasn’t nearly as important as the alleged prospect of the President wanting to fire someone he has every Constitutional right to fire.
It deserves more than a mention.
