Even DEMOCRATS Are Sounding the Alarm Over Biden’s Lax Immigration Policies

Democrats previously bragged about their plans once it became certain they would control both Congress and the White House.

Now when it is obvious that hard work is needed for governing and the party’s far-left faction has started pushing their interests, some Democrats are backing off and urging caution.

The warning looks something like this: ‘Don’t overreach with the most controversial stuff because doing so will cost us the majority in 2022.’

That is particularly true when it comes to immigration policy.

Before Joe Biden sat down in the Oval Office, there was a big pile of executive orders sitting on the Resolute Desk waiting for his signature. A great number of them overturned former President Donald Trump’s policies of tough border enforcement.

And now that the administration is pushing what amounts to an amnesty — a ‘pathway to citizenship’ for tens of millions of illegal aliens, some Democrats are becoming nervous about possible repercussions from the American people.

Under the headline, “‘Recipe for disaster’: Dem fears mount over immigration overhaul,” Politico reported on Thursday:

“The way we’re doing it right now is catastrophic and is a recipe for disaster in the middle of a pandemic,” said Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, one of the three Texas Democrats who represents part of the border most affected by spikes in migrant arrests and arrivals.

“Our party should be concerned. If we go off the rails, it’s going to be bad for us,” Gonzalez said. “Biden is going to be dealing with a minority in Congress if he continues down some of these paths.”

What’s interesting, specific surveys show that American Latinos are against mass migration because huge influxes of migrants would threaten to displace them and disenfranchise them in terms of jobs, wages, schools, and neighborhoods.

For example, 69 percent of Hispanics responded affirmatively when asked by a Washington Post pollster in April 2020: “Would you support … temporarily blocking nearly all immigration into the United States during the coronavirus outbreak?”

Only 30 percent of them shut immigration down.

That number is higher than the 67 percent of white people who supported blocking immigration, in part because 45 percent of self-identified liberals resisted any pause.

Of the Hispanics who oppose mass migration, Rep. Henry Cuellar, (D-TX), said to Politico:

“The focus for them is on jobs, the economy, the raise I got at work, the cost of health care, and if I can take a loan out for my business. We gotta be careful that we don’t give the impression that we have open borders because otherwise, the numbers are going to start going up. And surely enough, we’re starting to see numbers go up.”

Mass migration has already had a disastrous economic effect on Texas, where one-quarter of workers in total were born outside America.

“When all 254 counties in Texas were considered, all but 32 had wages below the national average,” was reported in March 2020 by the Bureau of Labor Standards.

The agency stated:

“The counties with the highest average weekly wages were concentrated around the larger metropolitan areas of Dallas, Houston, and Austin, as well as the smaller areas of Midland, Odessa, and Amarillo. Lower-paying counties tended to be located in the agricultural areas of central Texas, the Texas Panhandle, and along the Texas-Mexico border.”

The reality is that mass migration not only negatively influences jobs and workers’ earnings, but the majority of Hispanic Americans oppose it too, just like an increasing number of Democrats.
