Democrats continue their open-borders crusade, introducing a bill to raise the number of refugee admissions from Central America up to 100,000 a year.
According to Breitbart,
The new bill would, according to the Post, increase services to minor migrants in federal custody, create more ways for Central Americans to get refugee status before coming to the U.S., expand “dramatically” the support for migrant families while their cases are being processed, and increase financial investment in Central America to address the alleged problems migrants are fleeing.
This is far from the first time the Democrat Party has lobbied for more immigrants. In the last few months, many Democratic lawmakers came out in favor of giving citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.
In the first round of Democratic presidential debate, nearly all the candidates came out in favor of giving government-funded social programs to illegals and even decriminalizing the act of illegally crossing the border.
The push for more refugees comes on the heels of a new report that many low-skill jobs face elimination due to automation according to U.S. News.
The report from Oxford Economics had around 1.5 million jobs or more in the U.S. becoming automated in the next decade. It highlights four industries that face the brunt of the coming automation being hospitality, transportation, retail, and healthcare.
Considering that currently, around 63% of legal immigrants living in the U.S. are receiving some form of welfare, and the cost of illegal aliens leaves the American taxpayer with an over $100 billion bill, these problems have the potential to get worse as low-skill labor market jobs are replaced by automation.
