Biden Suffers BIG Defeat Dems Back Off Immigration Bill After Pelosi Comes Up Empty
Biden just suffered a big loss his immigration policies are getting sideline and it is another broken campaign promise.
Democrat had promised in March they would vote on an immigration bill that would give amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants however, Pelosi does not have the votes to pass the bill.
This week Pelosi was blindsided after a whip count showed she can’t pass the legislation.
So now Democrats are moving ahead with an alternative plan: Move the Biden bill through committee while the full House votes on more targeted immigration legislation that already enjoys broad caucus support.
“We need to engage in some consultation with key members and stakeholders, but I see no reason why we wouldn’t mark it up when we reconvene in April,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said.
“We need to have a discussion. It was put together by a few people. I don’t know what the role of the administration has been,” said Rep. Tom O’Halleran (D-Ariz.), a border-state Democrat who belongs to the centrist Blue Dog Coalition. “But I have a sense that it’s just not quite ready yet.”
This is a huge blow to Biden because he promised amnesty and now his rhetoric is causing a crisis at the border.
About a hundred of foreign nationals were seen near Tijuana, Mexico wearing Biden campaign t-shirts carrying signs demanding to be let into the USA.
In an interview with AFP some of the foreign nationals said Biden should allow them entry into the USA while they wait for their asylum.
“We want an answer from your president, we want someone to come out and give us an answer,” one of the protesters told nearby U.S. federal immigration officials.
Additionally, alarming reports out of Brownsville, Texas has found that the Biden Administration is releasing migrants who are testing positive for the coronavirus into the USA.
