Durbin Pushes Amnesty, Citizenship For Illegals

Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with several of his Democratic Senate colleagues, has called on Joe Biden to rapidly move to legitimize over 10 million illegal immigrants who have arrived in the United States since 2021. Their proposal would fast-track the path to both legal status and full citizenship rights. Of course, citizenship for illegal migrants would remove their legal disability to vote and would immediately allow them to participate in every American election.

America First lawmakers have responded by arguing the move could lead to an executive order granting amnesty. Removing that decision from Congress and vesting it with the president acting alone and unaccountably would only further complicate the nation’s ongoing immigration disaster.

Meanwhile, states have reportedly been blocked from accessing federal databases necessary for ensuring that only citizens are registered to vote. Even as the corporate media and Democrats have labeled the term “the great replacement” as the stuff of conspiracy theory, their own actions now show that is their obvious strategy. Including an enormously pro-Democrat group of millions of new voters overnight would change the demographics of the closely divided nation, likely in an irrevocable way.

On the economic front, Durbin’s proposal proponents emphasize the financial contributions of undocumented immigrants, citing billions in taxes paid to federal and state coffers. They argue that streamlining citizenship processes for immigrants with no criminal records and substantial ties to the U.S. would stabilize many American families and enhance the workforce.

However, the financial argument does little to sway opponents more concerned with the principles of national sovereignty and the integrity of American elections. They see the potential for noncitizen voting as a direct threat to the democratic process, where the fundamental right to vote should be reserved for those legally recognized as citizens.

The controversy surrounding Senator Durbin’s proposal encapsulates a broader national debate on immigration and citizenship. The issue isn’t merely about economic contributions or humanitarian considerations; it’s fundamentally about who gets to influence the American political landscape.

The stakes are exceptionally high, with the potential reshaping of electoral demographics — permanently — on the line. For those opposed to Durbin’s stance, the fight is not just against a policy but against a tide that they believe could irreversibly transform the American democratic experience.
