Joe Guzzardi: Congress, Joe Biden Dismiss Working-Class Americans

Events on Capitol Hill and the Southwest border are unfolding at dizzying pace. The outcome of those developments will have long-lasting and irreversible effects.

At the center of the chaos is immigration, the tumultuous topic that has embroiled Congress since the Immigration Reform and Control Act that President Ronald Reagan signed into law in 1986, 35 years ago.

During the budget resolution debate that will pave the way for a mid-March final vote on President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief bill, Republicans filed a staggering 900 amendments.

Two Republican senators proposed blocking stimulus checks from being paid out to unlawfully present aliens. Surprisingly, given the openly hostile relationship between the two parties, eight Democrats voted with Republicans on the common-sense proposal.

Nearly 16 million Americans are receiving unemployment benefits, and millions more have stopped looking for work. In December, the labor force participation rate hit 61.5 percent, its lowest level in years.

Americans’ pain and suffering should be the first consideration of Congress. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., however, later introduced an amendment that removed the Republicans’ proposal.

Long story short, as it currently stands, illegal immigrants will receive $1,400 checks.

Another amendment, this one introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, also portended bad news for unemployed and underemployed Americans. Cruz proposed that Congress restrict employment-based visas until the economy recovered from the coronavirus-induced stagnation.

Nevertheless, unsurprisingly but still disappointingly, Congress, including eight Republicans, rejected his proposal — one that is again, like blocking stimulus checks for illegal immigrants, a rational measure. During an average year, about 700,000 foreign national guestworkers enter the United States to work in a wide range of low- to high-skilled jobs.

Here’s an interesting sidenote on the Senate Republicans who advocate for easy corporate access to cheap labor. Of the eight, five — Sens. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Susan Collins of Maine, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Dan Sullivan of Alaska — were re-elected in 2020, and won’t have to face voters for six years. A sixth, Sen. Pat Toomey of Pennyslvania, announced his retirement in October.
