Why should Americans agree to worst-ever amnesty?

"USA Border" signAn immigration reform activist says Joe Biden's amnesty and open borders policies are a "magnet" for more fatal incidents along the southern border.

Immigration authorities are investigating a fatal crash in southern California involving an SUV that reportedly entered the country through a hole in the border fence. The vehicle, packed with 25 suspected illegal aliens, collided with a tractor trailer rig; the crash left 13 people dead. A Mexican official confirms that most of the individuals who died were Mexican, and authorities say the modified 1997 Ford Explorer in which they were packed was built to safely hold only eight passengers.

"Anybody that's familiar with the border or has worked a lot with Border Patrol knows that overloaded vehicles of this sort are common vessels to carry migrants illegally into the United States," notes Art Arthur, a resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS).

He says the Biden administration's amnesty mentality will encourage more of the same irresponsible behavior that led to this tragedy.

"The amnesty itself is a magnet that will draw individuals to enter the United States illegally and evade the Border Patrol, but the rhetoric is a magnet in and of itself," Arthur asserts. "Biden has stated his disdain for Trump's policy, so really, all of this has created a perfect storm that's going to cause incidents like this to become more frequent."

Ira Mehlman, a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), agrees and calls Biden’s amnesty proposal the worst in U.S. history.

FAIR's new report, "America Last: How the Biden Mass-Amnesty is Worse than Every Other Amnesty Attempt in U.S. History," details how past amnesties—legislated and de facto—pardoned illegal aliens for violating the nation's immigration laws and actually triggered even larger waves of illegal immigration.

Mehlman says Biden's amnesty proposal is exponentially larger than the one President Ronald Reagan signed in 1986.

"The thing is that this amnesty proposal that he sent to Congress last month does not even make a pretense of attempting to stop future illegal immigration," the FAIR spokesman relays. "The best they can do is say we're going to throw $4 billion at the problem in Central America, as though we are capable of solving the corruption, the crime, and poverty of Central America."

He predicts it will end up doing "absolutely nothing" but waste $4 billion of taxpayer money that will "wind up in somebody's Swiss bank account."

This administration is offering amnesty to anyone who was here as of January 1, 2021, and they plan to allow anyone who was deported or left the United States during the Trump administration to come back and claim amnesty. Mehlman says, "It's not even going to do anything to prevent future illegal immigration," and he wants the president to explain why the American public should support this.
