According to GOP Senate offices and former immigration officials, the immigration provisions in the Democratic budget reconciliation bill would make illegal immigrants who commit manslaughter and domestic violence eligible for amnesty and protect them from deportation. An analysis of the provision was shared with the Washington Free Beacon, which cites the legal language and observes that cases of assaulting a police officer and lewd and lascivious conduct would also be among the crimes that may not lead to deportation.

None of this is much of a surprise. The reconciliation bill is a liberal passion project, and refusing to deport illegal immigrants has become one of the foremost liberal passions over the last few years.

President Joe Biden has done everything he can to try and eliminate former President Donald Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy, which required asylum-seekers who entered the country illegally through the southern border to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims were processed. Biden has tossed the policy aside and reembraced the catch-and-release policies that allow those migrants who have no legitimate asylum claims (the vast majority) to stay in the country.

If that isn't enough to incentivize people to cross the border, the administration is considering paying up to $450,000 to migrants who were separated from family members after crossing the border. While Biden and the White House are playing coy about how much the administration is actually considering paying these migrants, the American Civil Liberties Union has made it clear that they are expecting that amount.

On top of that, several sanctuary cities and counties will reject detainer requests unless the person has a prior criminal history, while others will reject all detainer requests. Biden himself has said that drunk driving should not be a deportable offense.

Democrats in Congress and the Biden administration have made it clear that they want to offer the maximum leniency to illegal immigrants, even if the vast majority do not qualify for asylum. Their repeated efforts to get amnesty provisions inserted into the reconciliation bill are a natural outgrowth of that and a reminder of what Democrats will actually try to do if they get wide enough congressional majorities.

Quick, someone tell me a story about how Democrats are so tough on illegal aliens and how this particular Admin. is doing a bang-up job on the border.

C'mon, man!
