Why Biden’s Immigration Plan is Flawed

The Biden administration is proposing sweeping legislation to legalize virtually all illegal aliens, enact a variety of measures to weaken immigration enforcement, and increase legal immigration beyond the current level of about 1 million a year.

During a devastating pandemic, a wrenching economic slowdown, and political instability, the White House's top priority is amnesty for illegal aliens.

Fertility Among Immigrants and Native-Born Americans

The argument that the United States desperately needs immigration because Americans are not having "enough" children is a common theme of opinion pieces and even news coverage.

Immigrant Population Growth Slows

‘Trump Effect’ likely explains slowdown

Recently released Census data shows the number of immigrants (legal and illegal) grew more slowly from 2017 to 2019 than in prior years.

In the first two years of the Trump administration, growth in the immigrant population averaged only about 200,000 a year, in contrast to 650,000 a year from 2010 to 2017.

SCOTUS Confirms Illegal Aliens Bear Burden of Proof When Seeking Cancellation of Removal

The Supreme Court issued its first major immigration decision during the Biden administration in Pereida v. Wilkinson, and the verdict is a resounding victory for the rule of law. At issue was whether the U.S. government or the illegal alien bears the burden of proof for determining eligibility for discretionary relief from deportation, known as cancellation of removal.

Biden's Neanderthal Immigration Policy

The Biden administration's refusal to enforce our immigration laws and fully utilize Title 42 authority to turn away illegal aliens at the border, and its reinstatement of the reckless "catch and release" policies that were in vogue during the Obama years, is unnecessarily enhancing the risk of Covid-19 exposure for Americans nationwide.
