The Democratic presidential candidate promised in his campaign amnesty for illegal aliens and if he succeeds he would bring another 77 million people to the country, published National Pulse on Sept. 7.
A study by Yale University, says there are not 11 million illegal aliens in the United States, but more than 22 million.
In addition, the White House reports that for every immigrant who is naturalized, 3.5 more people enter the country, only because of family ties, which brings the increase to 77 million people should Biden obtain approval of the amnesty that he is seeking.
Applying this immigration criterion “de-skills the labor force, puts downward pressure on wages, and increases the deficit. Chain Migration also undermines national security,” the White House explained on the subject in December 2017.
These new residents make an impact by “become a voting U.S. Citizen within a short period of time, with access to Federal welfare and government benefits,” the White House added.
“If each newly minted American brings over just one relative, that’s another 20 million new immigrants in Biden’s first term alone. And nothing in the law would stop people from bringing over more than one. Most sponsor several” warned Michael Anton, author of “The Stakes,” quoted by National Pulse.
For the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit research organization founded in 1985, the argument that immigration is necessary to maintain an abundant supply of labor, as argued by the big business lobby, Wall Street, and others, is not accurate.
CIS bases its claim on a study released in February 2019 and accordingly a moratorium on immigration, for 40 years, would not affect the number of workers needed in the country.
The working population is generally measured by the ratio of U.S. workers to retirees, and an immigration moratorium would maintain the ratio of 2 active workers to 1 retiree, according to CIS.
If only 1.2 million people per year were to legally immigrate, 2.5 workers would be generated by 2060, who would need to be provided with employment for every retiree.
At that rate of immigration, the population would increase by 80 million people by 2060, according to the CIS study.
With presidential elections coming up, illegal aliens are already affecting the electoral process, so President Trump issued an order to the U.S. Census Bureau not to count illegal aliens in the census because this would affect the number of seats each state would get in the 435-seat U.S. House of Representatives. the long-term effects could also drastically change the political landscape for the next decade.
In 2010, the number of illegal aliens living in California, a key state for the Democrats, was enough to increase their number of seats and votes in Congress and the Electoral College by at least five times the normal number.
