Dems pushing amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants through reconciliation package: GOP

Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy held a roundtable discussion Thursday as a means to "expose" one of the underreported provisions in the Democrats' multitrillion-dollar reconciliation package: An attempt to grant amnesty to up to 10 million illegal immigrants.

About 1.3 million migrants have been taken into custody at the border since President Biden took office, McCarthy noted at the top of his Capitol Hill briefing. He was flanked by Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, Kat Cammack, R-Fla., John Rutherford, R-Fla., and Troy Nehls, R-Texas. The lawmakers were also joined via Zoom by Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, Sheriff Mark Dannels of Cochise County, Arizona, and Mayor Don McLaughlin of Uvalde, Texas.

Judd, who has been on the front lines of the crisis, emphasized McCarthy's reading of the statistics at the border, saying he’s "never seen anything like it." And if the Democrats succeed in pushing amnesty through reconciliation, he said, human traffickers and other bad actors at the border "will be rewarded."
