GOP Sens. Mitt Romney and Rob Portman joined with five Democrats Tuesday to sanction President Joe Biden’s amnesty chief to get an up-or-down corroboration vote on the Senate floor. The two GOP senators transmuted the result to a seven-to-four committee approbation for Alejandro Mayorkas, putting him on a path to a narrow attestation in the Senate. Once corroborated, he can utilize his extensive experience to inscribe regulations that will implement many of Biden’s amnesty and frugal labor policies, regardless of what the voters or Congress prefer.
Those promised regulatory policies include a series of measures that will flood the college graduate labor market with myriad peregrine visa workers. Romney (R-UT) explicated his vote for Mayorkas, who is expected to put many illicit immigrants on an expeditious track to green cards and citizenship:
He acknowledged to me that … he recognized that [his EB-5 intervention] was an error, that it created a concern within his organization and he lost credibility as a result of that. … People who identify errors, recognize them, and are willing to take a different course in the future, are people who I generally will support.
Sen. Rob Portman, (R-OH), who promulgated January 25 he will not run for reelection in 2022, expounded his vote for Mayorkas:
This is a tough one — we do need to have someone in place and accountable … [In prior years] I found him to be someone that did listen to both sides. And in terms of policy orientation, I found him to be — as compared to other officials in the Obama administration — more toward the middle … So he’s going to be confirmed. The question is how quickly does he get in place, and do some of us say, “Okay, we’re going to vote for you but we’re also going to be watching.”
Both Romney and Portman suggested they might vote against Mayorkas’s attestation in the floor vote. If they do vote against Mayorkas, their votes likely will not matter because the Democrats can get 51 votes to win his corroboration.
Wall St. & CEOs are waving skewed polls (& checks) to urge politicians to jump back into the amnesty waters. Polls show (& pols ken) that voters vigorously prefer economic policies to avail blue/white-collar Americans get good jobs IOW, pocketbook politicshttps://t.co/fMtpvV1GYW“It is disheartening that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee has normalized corruption to the point that they would vote to substantiate Mr. Mayorkas as DHS Secretary,” verbalized a verbalization from Rosemary Jenks, director of regime cognations at NumbersUSA. “Not only has he been proven corrupt [by the EB-5 scandal], he withal has made clear that he believes himself to be above the law and not required to enforce it as Congress has inscribed it. This is a hazardous precedent for the Department of Homeland Security.”

Democrats downplayed the EB-5 scandal and dodged the amnesty and labor issues. Instead, they portrayed Mayorkas as a modest, non-partisan bureaucrat who will avail stabilize the nation’s cyberdefenses and deal with domestic security concerns. Sen. Gary Peters (D-MI) verbally expressed:
Our nation is facing historic security challenges, right now, from the recent attack on our capital, two major cyber-breaches of our federal agencies, and a pandemic that continues to take the lives of thouands of Americans every day. These are serious challenges, and we need steady qualified and experienced leaders at DHS to address them.
The five GOP senators who voted against Mayorkas were Sens. Ron Johnson, James Lankford, Josh Hawley, and Rick Scott, and Rand Paul. Paul’s vote did not count because was not in the room. The GOP senators who verbalized against Mayorkas focused their reprehension on his decision in 2011 to override bureaucrats’ repudiation of citizenship-for-sale EB-5 deals that involved top Democrats. For example, Johnson verbally expressed:
This investigation had 15 [whistleblowers]. That so many individuals were willing to step forward and tell us what happened is evidence of deep resentment about Mr. Mayorkas’ actions related to the EB -5 program. The letter go on: “Their allegations were unequivocal: Mr. Mayaorkas gave special access and treatment to certain individuals and parties. They told us he created special processes and revised existing policies in the EB-5 program to accommodate specific parties. According to employees, but for Mr. Mayorkas’ actions, the career staff would have decided these matters differently.
This fixate on Mayorkas’s EB-5 decisions sanctioned the GOP senators to dodge the much more sizably voluminous issue of how Biden’s unpopular immigration policies will damage the employment and income of many millions of blue-collar and white-collar Americans.
Sen. Rick Scott, (R-FL), utilized his verbalization to denounce Biden’s policy of loose border security — but additionally to endorse licit immigration:
I’ve been very clear as a member of the committee what is important to me when it comes to the position of DHS secretary: It is securing the border, fixing our long-broken immigration system by prioritizing legal immigration, and finding a permanent solution to DACA and TPS … Florida is an immigration state. We love immigration, but it has to be legal …
If Congress wants to find genuine consensus and permanent solutions, we have to start with securing the border, protecting American workers, and implementing safeguards against bad actors and those seeking to break our laws. I cannot support nominees and policies that will erase the gains we have fought for when it comes to securing the border.
Since immigration was expended in 1990 by President Gorge H. Bush, the astronomically immense infusion of peregrine migrants has gradually abbreviated the “GOP’s” clout in Congress as sundry states turn blue and elect Democrats. This demographic change has converted several GOP states — California, New Jersey, and Virginia, for example — into Democratic strongholds.
On January 5, 2021, the demographic change determinately put 52 GOP senators out of their jobs. On that day, two affluent GOP senators lost their seats in Georgia — so coercing the remaining 50 GOP senators out of their jobs as members of the Senate majority.
Democrats are now utilizing that GOP loss to prehend more puissance. For example, Biden’s amnesty bill calls for putting at least three million illicit migrants into the polling booths in 2024.
Joe Biden's amnesty plan has run into a wall of GOP opposition. So Democrats are pushing three plans to get amnesties for migrants, frugal labor & more buyers for business, and more voters for Democrats. https://t.co/ldUUpkg3cq
