Nikki Haley says Biden immigration bill will ‘undermine the rule of law’

Nikki
Haley
on
Tuesday
said
that
President-elect
Joe
Biden’s
plan
to
give
a
pathway
to
citizenship
for
millions
of
illegal
immigrants
would
“undermine
the
rule
of
law”
while
also
failing
to
address
problems
with
the
asylum
system

a
sign
of
likely
Republican
opposition
to
the
proposal.

“Biden
will
unveil
a
bill
on
Day
1
to
give
citizenship
to
11
million
illegal
immigrants,”
the
former
U.N.
ambassador
said.
“His
proposal
will
undermine
the
rule
of
law,
even
as
it
fails
to
secure
the
U.S.
border
or
address
our
badly
broken
asylum
system.”

Vice
President-elect
Kamala
Harris
told

Univision
last
week
that
the
immigration
bill
would
be
“first
order
of
business”
and
will
be
about
“creating
a
pathway
for
people
to
earn
citizenship.”
She
said
that
pathway
would
be
eight
years
long.

The
Washington
Post
reported
Monday
that
the
bill
would
put
illegal
immigrants
into
protected
status
and
a
five-year
pathway
to
a
green
card.
If
they
meet
certain
conditions,
such
as
payment
of
taxes
and
a
background
check,
they
could
then
be
put
on
a
three-year
pathway
to
citizenship. 

The
Post
reported
that
the
bill
would
also
include
border
security
provisions
at
the
border,
and
said
it
would
see
increased
technology
at
the
border

but
it
is
unclear
what
this
involves.
Biden
has
promised
that
“not
another
foot”
of
President
Trump’s
border
wall
will
be
built
under
his
administration.

The
bill,
if
passed,
would
mark
a
significant
win
for
the
liberal
wing
of
the
Democratic
Party
and
immigration
activist
groups

which
have
sought
amnesty
for
illegal
immigrants
for
years.

Democrats
have
control
of
the
House,
Senate
and
White
House
and
will
likely
be
united
in
their
support
of
the
legislation.
However,
in
the
Senate,
the
bill
will
need
10
Republican
votes
to
pass
and
be
sent
to
Biden’s
desk.

But
Republicans
are
likely
to
oppose
the
bill,
especially
if
it
does
not
include
muscular
border
security
measures

a
typical
Republican
demand
of
all
past
immigration
reform
proposals.

While
the
legislation
has
not
been
formally
unveiled
yet,
Haley
is
not
the
only
Republican
to
signal
their
opposition
to
the
proposal.

Sen.
Josh
Hawley,
R-Mo.,
blocked
the
quick
consideration
of
Alejandro
Mayorkas

Biden’s
pick
to
lead
the
Department
of
Homeland
Security

citing
the
immigration
proposal,
as
well
as
Mayorkas’
answers
on
border
security.

“On
Day
1
of
his
administration,
President-elect
Biden
has
said
he
plans
to
unveil
an
amnesty
plan
for
11
million
immigrants
in
this
nation
illegally,”
the
populist
senator
said.
“This
comes
at
a
time
when
millions
of
American
citizens
remain
out
of
work
and
a
new
migrant
caravan
has
been
attempting
to
reach
the
United
States.”
