Tech Elites, Former Obama Official Janet Napolitano ‘Urge’ DREAM Act Amnesty in Year-End Spending Bill
Silicon Valley tech executives and former Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Janet Napolitano say they are urging the GOP-led Congress to attach an amnesty deal for potentially 3.5 million illegal aliens to a year-end spending bill.
The panel discussion at Microsoft’s San Francisco, California, headquarters demanded that the DREAM Act, the biggest amnesty of all the current amnesty bills filed in Congress, be attached to the spending bill that must be passed before December 31 in order to continue funding the federal government.
“We have to urge Congress to add the DREAM Act to the spending bill,” Ron Conway, co-founder of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s open borders group, FWD.us, said.
Under the DREAM Act, 3.5 million illegal aliens who are either enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program or eligible for the program would be allowed to permanently remain in the United States.
After the group of amnestied illegal aliens obtained U.S. citizenship, they would then be able to bring their extended family members into the country as well. This is what’s known as “chain migration.”
Should a DACA amnesty be passed and signed by President Donald Trump, a chain migration to the U.S. of roughly 9.9 to 19 million foreign nationals would follow, with the mass immigration impacting an entire generation of Americans.
While Napolitano and tech executives promoted a year-end amnesty in California, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and New American Economy, an open borders group backed by Rupert Murdoch and Michael Bloomberg, have taken their demands to Washington, DC.
This week, illegal aliens were transported to Capitol Hill to not only lobby vulnerable members of Congress to support an amnesty deal, but also to stage disruptions in the city, particularly in the halls of Congress and at the White House.
Though both political establishments, the big business lobby, the cheap labor industry, and the open borders lobby have made the fight for amnesty their end-of-the-year charge, the American people remained opposed to the plan.
A recent Morning Consult/Politico poll found that less than 30 percent of Americans said giving DACA illegal aliens amnesty should be a priority, Breitbart News reported.
Meanwhile, a whopping 82 percent of Americans said helping unemployed Americans find jobs should be a higher priority for Congress than providing work permits to illegal aliens, a poll conducted by National Research Inc./The Polling Company found. A total of 78 percent of Democrats agreed that unemployed Americans should be helped before illegal aliens are helped.
