(RoyalPatriot.com )- After the Senate Parliamentarian shot down Democrats’ plans to sneak amnesty for illegals into their $3.5 trillion “human infrastructure” plan, Senate Democrats have come up with a Plan B that Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) believes will pass scrutiny.
Menendez, who was part of the infamous Amnesty Gang of Eight during the Obama years, said this week that Senate Democrats will propose another amnesty plan in their garbage bill that would allow every illegal alien who entered the United States prior to 2010 to receive green cards and, eventually, citizenship.
One almost has to grudgingly admire the Democrats “never say die” attitude. If only Republican lawmakers were that stalwart.
Menendez is now trying to get the Senate Parliamentarian to agree to the Senate changing the registry date listed in the Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) of 1986.
Menendez believes that a change to the registry date isn’t changing the 1986 law; instead, it’s just “updating a date” listed in the law.
The 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act signed by President Ronald Reagan granted amnesty to anyone who lived in the US since before January 1, 1972. What Menendez wants to do is and simply scratch out the old date and change it to January 1, 2010.
So, see if you can follow that. Menendez believes changing the registry date in the law is not changing the law.
That makes absolutely zero sense.
But Democrats never take no for answer. Not ever.
Changing the date in this 1986 law would grant amnesty to an estimated 11 million illegal aliens.
On its face, this maneuver is brazen and deeply flawed to say the least.
And you can thank Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for giving Bob Menendez and the rest of the Senate Democrats the idea. It was Zuckerberg’s FWD.us lobby group that published a detailed analysis back in April explaining how the Senate Democrats could do exactly what Menendez is trying to do.
Which begs the question: Do US Senators represent their states in Congress or do they represent Mark Zuckerberg and 11 million illegal aliens?
