Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer on Wednesday called for blanket amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
Schumer cited a worker shortage as his reasoning to push for amnesty for illegal immigrants.
He said the U.S. has a shortage of workers and the American population “is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to.”
“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, the only way we’re gonna have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants! The DREAMers and all of them!” Schumer stated.
“Because our ultimate goal is to help the DREAMers get a path to citizenship for “all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here!” he added.

How many of these illegal immigrants do Democrats want to entrench into their party?
From the Daily Mail:
The undocumented immigrant population is hard to track, at the end of 2021 anti-immigration group FAIR put the number at 15.5 million. But in fiscal year 2022, which ended in October, there were 2.76 million unlawful immigration encounters at the southern border, not counting ‘got-aways’ who went undetected by law enforcement.
Republicans made the southern border one of three main focuses – along with crime and inflation – in the midterm elections.
Schumer also pushed back on the narrative that immigration brings crime into America.
‘Immigrants, undocumented, documented have a higher rate of employment and a lower rate of crime than average Americans — so all the BS spread by these right-wing people, the nastiness, it’s just not true. It just aggravates me!’
Schumer told reporters at the Capitol ahead of the press conference that he hoped to get immigration reform moved through the upper chamber during the lame duck session before January.
In the next Congress, Democrats will hold on to a narrow majority of either one or two seats, depending on Georgia’s runoff election.
‘Now let’s roll up our sleeves and get this done. American sent a clear message [in the midterms]. They rejected the deeply anti-immigrant message of the MAGA Republicans,’ Schumer said.
The Daily Wire added:
Per a 2018 Yale study, an estimated 22 million illegal aliens are living in the U.S. Under President Joe Biden’s watch, some project that 5.5 million have crossed the border.
There are other ways to encourage population growth. Tax incentives that benefit couples who marry and have children and other pro-natalist policies could help.
Yet it seems obvious that Democrats want to pass amnesty because they believe it would create a new class of voters for them.
Schumer and his gang are not alone. Some Republicans want a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens as well — precisely because it would provide cheap labor.
As documented by Nate Hochman at National Review, Sens. Thom Tillis (R-NC) and John Cornyn (R-TX) have been in talks with Democratic leaders throughout 2022 to create some sort of bill that strengthens border security while passing amnesty. ig: @vasilevv.m
