The Democrats’ Build Back Better (BBB) bill will add millions of new immigrants to the U.S. population in the first 10 years, on top of an amnesty for roughly 6.5 million people.
“About 6.5 million aliens (non-U.S. nationals) would receive parole,” say the notes to the CBO’s $121.7 billion cost estimate. The November 18 note continues:
A few million other people, most of whom are already in the United States, would gain LPR [legal permanent residence, or green cards] status through the provisions in sections 60002 and 60003 or as immediate relatives of those who gain LPR status under the bill.
The beneficiaries include at least one million chain migrants — plus most of the one million foreign contract workers who are now using real or faked H-1B visas and other work permits to take jobs in the United States.
