The Senate’s eagerly awaited “border” bill has been unleashed, and it appears to be a Trojan horse that aims to flood American communities, workplaces, and schools with an increased influx of amnestied illegal immigrants. Dubbed the “Emergency National Security Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2024,” this 370-page behemoth was dropped on a Sunday evening, accompanied by a multi-billion dollar appropriations bill designed to facilitate the registration, release, transport, and housing of migrants across coastal cities and inland communities.
Cloaked in the guise of a “national security” bill, this legislative move is supposedly intended to tackle the border crisis, but it seems to be a thinly veiled attempt to quell opposition from Republican legislators. These legislators, reliant on the support of concerned ordinary citizens worried about the consequences of unchecked migration, are facing a challenge from a bill that could exacerbate issues related to lawlessness, economic strain, crime, overcrowding, and cultural upheaval.
Don’t even bother reading the new Senate Border Bill.
It’s not a stand alone border bill .
It’s 370 pages long and the first mention of an additional $207.2 MILLION for Ukraine is on page 3. But the whole package includes another $60 BILLION for Ukraine.

Crafted behind closed doors by a select group of establishment figures and their corporate donors, including Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the bill’s details have been shrouded in secrecy. The trio of senators appointed to negotiate the plan with the White House includes Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT), Sen. James Lankford (R-OK), and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (I-AZ). The White House side is advised by Alejandro Mayorkas, Biden’s pro-migration border chief.
Mayorkas, a skilled lawyer, has been instrumental in carving out loopholes in the nation’s border laws, arguing that managing the influx of migrants is easier if they enter through legal pathways. He contends that Americans have a moral obligation to accept migrants and asserts that the nation “needs” more migrant labor to fill jobs created by investors.

While Democrats tout the bill as a solution to boost President Biden’s flagging poll numbers for the 2024 election, critics argue that it is a veiled attempt to push forward a pro-establishment agenda, potentially at the expense of American citizens.
Key concerns surround whether the bill will genuinely reduce the inflow of migrants or merely legalize Biden’s existing illegal migration. Critics highlight the annual allowance for around one million legal immigrants and approximately one million temporary workers, a staggering figure when compared to the overall American population.
The bill is reported to include some nominal curbs on Biden’s illegal parole migration, yet skeptics warn of potential loopholes that could expand the parole inflow. Questions persist about provisions ensuring the departure of parole migrants after two years versus legal loopholes facilitating their path to green cards, family reunification, and citizenship.

The bill claims to end “catch and release,” but Sen. Sinema’s statement that migrants with children will not be detained raises doubts about its effectiveness. Electronic surveillance as an alternative raises concerns about migrants securing jobs to repay high-interest loans to smugglers.
Another contentious issue is the potential impact on white-collar migration, with reports suggesting an additional 50,000 green cards per year and 250,000 work permits for the adult children of foreign visa workers. Critics argue that these measures would disadvantage American graduates by displacing them with foreign workers.
The bill’s touted “border shutdown” trigger, meant to kick in if a certain threshold of migrants arrives within a specified time frame, has also raised eyebrows. Critics fear it may impede a president’s ability to act swiftly in emergency situations, potentially allowing a continuation of the status quo.
In essence, the bill appears to perpetuate extraction migration, a policy that has characterized the federal government’s approach since 1990. Critics argue that this economic policy extracts resources from needy countries, suppresses wages, subsidizes low-productivity companies, inflates rents and real estate prices, and disadvantages native-born Americans.
As this legislative juggernaut hurtles toward a scheduled vote, concerns persist about the bill’s actual impact and whether it addresses the core issues surrounding immigration or serves as a guide for advancing hidden agendas. The intricate details and potential ramifications demand careful scrutiny before any decisive action is taken.
