Republican Tennessee legislators are working to defend citizenship for their constituents as Biden proposes new plans to the House. 

Tennessee Capitol Building in Nashville

We previously covered the concept of “sanctuary cities” and their adaptation to 2nd Amendment rights across our state, but it more commonly refers to cities that choose not to abide by federal regulations for immigration. 

Local government entities and lawmakers in Tennessee do their best to uphold constitutional regulations, but have ultimately been elected to represent the desires of the people when said regulations infringe upon 10th Amendment protections. 

This may prove to be necessary action if Biden’s plan somehow makes it through the House and Senate. 

Biden’s bill would provide a faster path to citizenship for nearly 11 million undocumented immigrants.

The bill allows undocumented individuals to apply for temporary legal status, with the ability to apply for green cards after only five years.

In an attempt to appease political correctness, the bill even bothers to change our language. The bill calls for changing the word “alien” to “noncitizen” in our immigration laws.

The legislation would allow immigrants with  family-sponsorship to join family in the United States while they wait for green cards to become available, essentially granting them citizenship. 

Included also is a “NO BAN Act” that prohibits discrimination based on religion and also increases Diversity Visas to 80,000 from 55,000.

Biden’s administration wants to give DHS authority to adjust green cards based on macroeconomic conditions, supposedly to prevent unfair competition with American workers.

X-Files Style - The Truth Is Not Out There

Hidden further in the bill are long-term plans for investing in foreign aid. It codifies and funds the Biden’s $4 billion four-year project for increasing assistance to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, to relieve poverty that causes people to flee their countries despite the number of American’s presently displaced by poverty at home.

Senator Blackburn tweeted in response to the announcement. 

“Biden’s immigration bill provides blanket amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants. This reckless plan only puts American workers and our country’s security at risk.”

Senator Haggerty echoed concerns by releasing this statement:

“President Biden’s mass amnesty legislative proposal, coupled with his unilateral actions to dismantle border security, will encourage more illegal immigration and reduce opportunities for American workers during a pandemic-induced recession when so many are already struggling to find jobs. Why are we placing the interests of non-citizens over the interests of Americans?”

Customs and Border Protection documented an 86% increase in the number of illegal border crossings compared to the same time last year.

Immigration data analysts anticipate a massive surge of undocumented individuals entering the country in response to Biden’s administration. 

There are questions about how the administration will handle the tens of thousands of people who have been waiting in Mexico for asylum hearings as well paused by Trump. 

What this means for residents of Tennessee will continue to unfold and be determined by the success or failure of Biden’s bill, but at this time, majority representatives plan to do their best to protect citizenship.

    I find it disgusting that both Blackburn and Haggerty present themselves as staunch Conservatives after stabbing President Trump and our country in the back by withdrawing their objection to the Fraudulent Presidential Election when the Fake News Media misrepresented the events of January 6th, 2021.

    It is sickening that they think that we the people are going to forget their betrayal of President Trump and us. They think that they can just continue on as if we did not see or remember what they did on that fateful day.

    Guess what Blackburn and Haggerty, WE WILL NOT FORGET !!!

    Whatever Biden and the ruling democrats purpose, I declare complete opposition to.
    We ,the majority of Freedom loving Americans , do not buy into their agenda at all.

    Please know we are watching on how our representative vote on proposals by this country’s enemies.

    We will prevail over these crooked thieves and communist.

    Conservatives need to unite on the goal of controlling our borders for the health of all Americans.
    I am quite sure there have been mistakes made in the past. Nobody can change their past so we have to support Senators that stand up against Illegal immigration and have at least visited the Border. Biden and Harris haven’t visited the Border, seen the problem first hand, and simply ignore the problem.
    Unite on the basis of Political Platform, not personality.
    A lot of people didn’t like Trump’s personality, extravagant lifestyle, totally ignored his accomplishments, were manipulated by the media and constant attacks.
