Schumer Sells Amnesty and Abortion to Fix Low Birth Rate

The awful irony of his sales pitch was apparently lost on the Senate minority leader.

“Illegal immigration is wrong, plain and simple,” said the fiery senator at Georgetown University’s Immigration Law and Policy Conference. “When we use phrases like ‘undocumented workers,’ we convey a message to the American people that their government is not serious about combating illegal immigration, which the American people overwhelmingly oppose.”

Frankly, it’s hard to believe the lefties at Georgetown Law let this truth-telling border hawk in the door, much less invited him to speak. And he wasn’t done:

Above all else, the American people want their government to be serious about protecting the public, enforcing the rule of law, and creating a rational system of legal immigration that will proactively fit our needs rather than reactively responding to future waves of illegal immigration. People who enter the United States without our permission are illegal aliens, and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the United States legally. The American people will never accept immigration reform unless they truly believe that their government is committed to ending future illegal immigration, and any successful comprehensive immigration reform bill must recognize this fact. Any immigration solution must recognize that we must do as much as we can to gain operational control of our borders as soon as possible.

Ted Cruz? Marco Rubio? Nope. That was Chuck Schumer back in 2009. See for yourself.

How times have changed. Or, rather, how Chuck Schumer has changed. Yesterday, the shape-shifting Senate majority leader found his way to a microphone outside the U.S. Capitol and, against a shamelessly assembled backdrop of brown-skinned props, began to lament our nation’s low birth rate and thus the need for amnesty for the many millions of illegals already here.

“Now more than ever,” he explained, “we’re short of workers. We have a population that is not reproducing on its own with the same level that it used to. The only way we’re going to have a great future in America is if we welcome and embrace immigrants — the Dreamers and all of them — because our ultimate goal is to help the Dreamers but get a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here.”

Remember how the Left went ballistic about “Replacement Theory” a few months back in the wake of the racially motivated Buffalo supermarket massacre? Well, Chuck Schumer just confirmed that “white supremacist” “conspiracy theory.”

The sweet-sounding “Dreamers” Schumer is referring to are the illegals who entered the U.S. while under the age of 16 and who’ve lived here for at least five years. As you can imagine, that’s an ever-growing group.

But listen closely, because Schumer isn’t just talking about this age-limited cohort, and he isn’t just talking about amnesty. He says, “a path to citizenship for all 11 million or however many undocumented there are here.”

Thus, he’s calling for citizenship for every last one of them.

But that “11 million” number isn’t even close. A 2018 Yale study put the number at 22 million, and that number has surged many millions more since Joe Biden took office and appointed Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to implement his “open borders” policy. According to a recent analysis by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, some 5.5 million more have illegally crossed the border on Joe Biden’s watch.

With all this focus on illegal immigrants, though, we’re missing the awful irony of Schumer’s feigned concern about our nation’s lower birth rate. It’s an irony borne out by a bloody half-century of unfettered abortion and some 63 million Americans who were never allowed to be born, never allowed to grow up and be a part of the American workforce that Senator Schumer claims to care so much about.

“You’re funding Planned Parenthood to keep the native-born population smaller,” noted NewsBusters executive editor Tim Graham.

Said Republican strategist Greg Price: “They say that it’s empowering to stay single forever and never start a family, claim having kids destroys the environment, promote abortion as a moral good, and their solution when they realize people aren’t having enough kids is to import the third world to replace them.”

That pretty much sums it up, except that they’re also using your taxpayer dollars to ensure that migrants obtain abortions. Progressives are never done, never finished, and they’ve strayed much further to the left on illegal immigration, on abortion, on marriage, and on just about every other issue out there.

And yet they call conservatives “extremists.”
