(RepublicanWire.org) – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Wednesday called for blanket amnesty for millions of illegal aliens living in the United States.
Schumer, said that America needs new immigrants “now more than ever” to combat declining reproduction rates and the lowest population growth in the country’s history.
“Now more than ever, we’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to, the only way we’re gonna have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants! The DREAMers and all of them!” Schumer said.
Of course everyone knows this is political.
The Democrats will use the millions of illegal aliens to permanently entrench their party.
Many reminded Schumer of the irony that he and the Democratic Party support abortion yet are complaining about low birth rates and looking to absolve illegal border-crossers to solve that problem.
Conservatives on social media expressed shocked that Schumer seriously made that argument.
Conservative political strategist Greg Price commented, “They say that it’s empowering to stay single forever and never start a family, claim having kids destroys the environment, promote abortion as a moral good, and their solution when they realize people aren’t having enough kids is to import the third world to replace them.”
He then laid into Schumer directly, adding, “Chuck Schumer has also been in government since the 1980s and helped create the economy of today that makes it virtually impossible for people my age to build wealth and start a family. The man has literally done nothing but preside over America’s decline.”
Rep Andy Biggs tweeted, “.@SenSchumer now wants amnesty for 11 million ‘undocumented’ individuals. That’s strange. He previously called them ‘illegal’ and said illegal immigration is ‘wrong.’ Unfortunately, Democrats like Chuck have caved to the open borders lobby and woke mob.”
Per a 2018 Yale study, an estimated 22 million illegal aliens are living in the U.S. Under President Joe Biden’s watch, some project that 5.5 million have crossed the border.
There are other ways to encourage population growth. Tax incentives that benefit couples who marry and have children and other pro-natalist policies could help.
Yet it seems obvious that Democrats want to pass amnesty because they believe it would create a new class of voters for them.
