The Senate GOP leadership’s draft border deal with the White House is criticized for potentially encouraging illegal migration and favoring foreign graduates over American graduates for jobs.

The deal includes provisions to increase green cards, provide work permits to illegal aliens, and offer taxpayer-funded lawyers to certain individuals.

Critics argue that the deal could lead to increased competition for jobs, lower wages for Americans, and a negative impact on national productivity. (Trending: Bombshell UFO Footage Released To The Public)

“There’s nothing in there that [restricts immigration], in fact, it’s just going to encourage more people to come,” Immigration Accountability Project president Chris Chmielenski said.

“The Republicans went to the auto shop to get their car fixed and walked out with a broken cup holder,” Chmielenski wrote.

The deal “is a sellout — it’s going to continue to allow illegal immigration,” Sen. Rand Paul said.

“It’s saying, ‘Oh, we’ll let 5,000 people come illegally a day, and then after that, we might try to stop the next 5,000 that day,’” he added, noting, “It’s completely a sellout.”

“People like Senator [Mitch] McConnell care more about Ukraine than anything else — more than the border, more than anything else. He wants to send $60 billion of your money to Ukraine. On this issue, he is more aligned with Biden … McConnell is much more closely aligned with [President Joe] Biden than he is with the Republican Party.”

“I’m a part of the working group. I’ve seen progress … We cannot miss this opportunity. The stakes are too high. … You don’t even need political courage to do the right thing here because the good policy of border security is also good politics for the overwhelming majority of [Senators] that need to vote for this bill,” Sen. Thom Tillis said.

“I think we’ll probably have 25 or 30 members in this body that won’t vote for it. Some will be because it didn’t go too far. The others will be [saying] it didn’t go far enough … But we need about 70 votes coming out of this chamber to create the momentum to get it done in the House. And I’m going to be one of those 70 votes.”

Additionally, it is suggested that the deal could allow foreign graduates to take jobs from U.S. graduates and potentially impact the 2024 election.

“Biden is getting pounded on, and Democrats are getting pounded on, their mishandling of the border, but here Republicans are basically giving them a hall pass,” Chmielenski said.

“They’re basically taking ownership of the [border] issue in an election year — how does that help their electoral chances at all?” he pressed.
