Why are politicians arguing over 10,000 Syrians coming into the country when the new cromnibus will allow at least 170,000 migrants in from Muslim countries? The numbers will undoubtedly be higher. They have been over the last several years.
The senate voted to approve the cromnibus bill and Senator Sessions said this is the reason GOP voters are in open rebellion. Sessions is Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration, Border Security, and Refugees.
Senator Sessions took to the Senate floor on Wednesday to warn of the repercussions from the cromnibus bill when it comes to immigration, illegal and otherwise.
“There is a reason that GOP voters are in open rebellion,” Sessions said. “They have come to believe that their party’s elites are not only uninterested in defending their interests but – as with this legislation, and fast-tracking the President’s international trade pact – openly hostile to them. This legislation represents a further disenfranchisement of the American voter.”
The bill, Sessions said, allows the president to bring as many refugees as he wants and he can bring them in from anywhere he wants, giving them access to unlimited entitlements at taxpayer expense. At least 170,000 green cards will be issued to refugees, asylees, migrants from Muslim countries over the next 12 months.
It quadruples foreign workers available to employers under the H-2B visa program. H-2B workers are supposed to fill positions workers won’t do seasonally but they are taking American’s jobs.
The bill won’t defund Sanctuary Cities. Illegal aliens will continue to get tax credits. They don’t have a social security number, they have children somewhere around the world, they don’t pay taxes but they get a child tax credit for children not even in the country. Language to stop this was not kept in the bill. Those credits were made permanent.
Americans are being terminated, they are made to train the new foreign workers who then take their place. Amendments to stop this were rejected, but industries asking for more foreign workers had their requests met.
Executive amnesty continues as does funding to countries who won’t take their illegal aliens back.

“The omnibus,” he said, “paves the way for a huge immigration increase beyond today’s record-breaking highs – that more than 8 in 10 American voters want the level of immigration in American frozen or cut, and yet the GOP-led Congress is about to surge it even higher.”
“According to the U.S. Census Bureau – even without these increases – immigration will add the population equivalent of 1 new Los Angeles to the country each 3 years.”
“The U.S. has admitted 59 million immigrants since 1965. As historical context, after the numerically-smaller 1880-1920 immigration wave, future immigration was reduced to promote wage growth for US-born and immigrant workers: there was zero net growth in the foreign-born population over the course of the next half-century (in fact, it declined markedly). Now, after five decades of unprecedented immigration, the U.S. is on path to add another five decades of unprecedented immigration on top of that – setting new all-time records every single decade to come.”
