Senate Democrats Push Amnesty for 11 Million Illegal Aliens

Last Updated on November 17, 2022

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on Wednesday called for amnesty for 11 million illegal aliens. Senate Democrats have argued that such a move is necessary to combat America’s declining birthrate.

“Now more than ever, we’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to,” Schumer told reporters outside the U.S. Capitol grounds. “The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers and – all of them. Cause our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million, or however many undocumented immigrants.”

Schumer was flanked by Senate colleagues Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Alex Padilla (D-CA), who urged 10 Senate Republicans to join them in the supporting the DREAM Act. The legislation would give amnesty to 3.3 million illegal aliens enrolled and eligible for former President Obama’s DACA program, providing them with green cards and legal residence. They would also be placed on a pathway to naturalized citizenship.

“We know that it’s important that we pass the DREAM Act in December of this year … when we return from Thanksgiving, because if the House moves as we think it might, politically, it becomes increasingly difficult after the first of next year to take up this issue,” Durbin said.

Fresh off championing abortion as his party’s main policy concern in last week’s midterm elections, Schumer argued that mass amnesty is necessary in order to combat the nation’s declining birth rate.

“We’re short of workers, we have a population that is not reproducing on its own at the same level that it used to,” Schumer said. “The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants, the DREAMers, and all of them.”

The plan would ultimately provide a pathway to citizenship for anywhere from 11 million to 19 million foreign nationals illegally residing in the United States.
