The unity presidency is going to use its honeymoon period to advance one of the most divisive, liberal pieces of legislation in the Biden administration’s campaign wish list.
According to NBC News, Biden and House Democrats this week will unveil the “U.S. Citizenship Act of 2021,” an amnesty bill that would allow 11 million illegal immigrants an eight-year path to citizenship and expand the refugee resettlement program.
The bill itself, as well as the timing, promises to be unsurprising but alarming. On his first day in office, Biden laid out his policy prerogatives for immigration reform, most of which had been expected. The administration would back what it called an “earned roadmap” to a green card in five years and full citizenship in eight “if they pass criminal and national security background checks and pay their taxes.”
