Democratic Presidential candidate Joe Biden has promised to grant amnesty to all illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. – a policy that could lead to nearly a quarter increase in the population, strain resources, and supply Democrats with an abundance of votes.
Biden’s amnesty pledge is a central tenet of his campaign, declaring, if elected, he “will immediately begin working” to provide a “roadmap to citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants.”
Since 11 million is the Democrats’ go-to number when estimating the illegal immigrant population in the U.S., Biden is effectively promising universal amnesty, a policy favored by globalists and spurned by American workers.
Speaking on the National Pulse Show, Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam noted this projection is faulty and outdated while speaking with former Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting Michael Anton.
A more recent estimate, from a 2018 Yale study, suggests the illegal immigrant population surpasses 22 million.
Amnestying 22 million individuals could therefore lead to a nearly 25 percent increase in the U.S. population in one fell swoop – or a whopping 77 million people.
