Josh Hawley: Biden â€˜More Focusedâ€™ on Amnesty than Working Class Job Losses
John Binder 22 Feb 2021
Sen. Josh Hawley says President Joe Biden is â€œmore focusedâ€ on providing amnesty to millions of illegal aliens than grappling with potential economic doom for Americaâ€™s working class.
Last week, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) introduced Bidenâ€™s amnesty legislation into the Senate. The plan seeks to legalize, and eventually provide American citizenship to, about 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States today.
Also, the plan is likely to double legal immigration levels â€” where already more than 1.2 million green cards are awarded to legal immigrants annually â€” even as more than 17 million Americans are jobless but wanting full-time employment.
Specifically, a McKinsey Global Institute analysis detailed by the Washington Post reveals that the overwhelming longterm economic burden, as a result of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, will be put on working and lower-middle class Americans.
