Democrats Try to Slip Amnesty for Millions of Illegal Aliens into DHS Funding Bill

John Binder, Breitbart, September 7, 2023

House Democrats are attempting to slip an amnesty for millions of illegal aliens into a year-end Department of Homeland Security (DHS) funding bill, Breitbart News has learned.

Reps. Sylvia Garcia (D-TX), Lou Correa (D-CA), and Yvette Clarke (D-NY) have filed an amendment to the $91.5 billion DHS funding bill that would see the American Dream and Promise Act become law.

The DREAM Act-style amnesty, which has repeatedly failed to pass the House and Senate in prior years, would give green cards and a path to naturalized American citizenship to about 4.4 million illegal aliens in the United States.

The Heritage Foundation Director of the Border Security and Immigration Center Lora Ries told Breitbart News that the amnesty attempt should be expected from Democrats.

“The Left’s tactic: Never let a crisis go to waste, especially an intentional, Biden administration-made border crisis, to seek amnesty for illegal aliens,” Ries said. {snip}
