The House GOP majority is being urged by President Biden’s aides to support new housing and travel initiatives for more economic migrants who have been urged to seize chances that regular Americans need.
The $3.3 billion funding proposal made on August 10 “isn’t all tailored to encourage additional illegal immigration, but the majority of it appears to be,” according to Mark Krikorian, the center’s director. He continued:
“This explains why many Republicans are opposed to increasing money for the DHS. Republicans would be lining up to support it if DHS really used the funding to halt the flow of illegal immigrants. However, that is not what this government intends to accomplish with the additional funding for DHS; instead, they want to utilize it for speeding up the entrance of foreign nationals.”
He said that the “border guard is now a Walmart greeter.”
Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) along with 14 additional Texas GOP legislators pleaded with the Republican majority to forbid financing for Biden’s immigration programs right around the time the White House’s proposal was made public.
“The bottom line is that not a single member of Congress should consent to funding a federal agency at battle with his state and citizens. We have a moral duty to safeguard our states, our country, and, most significantly, the migrant children who are being mistreated as a result of the catastrophe occurring at our southern border.”
As public resistance to Democrats who are sending migrants into New York, Chicago, California, Maine, as well as other Democrat-run districts is mounting, the letter stated, “No border security, zero funding.”
Numerous Republicans are also against continuing to support the conflict, which is reportedly at a standstill with a high death toll. The economic cost, which is driving government expenditure considerably over most recently consented spending objectives, is a contributing factor in the resistance.
The Republican members of the House Appropriations Panel, chaired by Representative Kay Granger (R-TX), have to authorize the funds.
Therefore, representatives of the White House and the mainstream media are framing the increased migration expenditure as a benefit for border security. For instance, on August 10, the New York Times reported:
“By attaching popular political expenditure to the Ukraine assistance, Mr. Biden aimed to sweeten the deal. $12 billion for disaster assistance and $4 billion for border security are requested as part of the supplementary appropriations.”
However, the specifics reveal that the majority of border expenditure is designed to attract even more economic migrants rather than to keep them out.
New migration routes from Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, and Ecuador into American cities are planned to be funded with up to $800 million. These “Safe Mobility Offices” are designed to provide an easier and less expensive entry point for African, European, and Asian economic migrants.
The department responsible for deporting unauthorized immigrants, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, also needs an additional $714 million, according to the proposal. However, the proposal also requests the power to transfer funds inside the organization, in order to utilize those funds for the housing scheme that would house migrants while they accepted employment in the United States they need to settle debts associated with people smuggling. Additionally, the initiative would offer undocumented individuals free legal counsel on how to circumvent immigration laws that were put in place to safeguard Americans against undocumented immigrants.
