House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., on Wednesday criticized incoming President Joe Biden for offering amnesty to undocumented immigrants as part of his pathway to citizenship.

Biden reportedly plans to announce legislation on his first day in office that will provide a pathway to citizenship for millions of people who entered the United States illegally. McCarthy, in a statement to Breitbart, said that ensuring Americans can “get back to work” should be the country’s top priority.

“The coronavirus and government-imposed lockdowns have left millions of Americans unemployed and small businesses shut down. Our immediate national priority must be to help Americans get back to work. Instead, the first legislative priority we get from the new administration is not one aimed at lowering unemployment for Americans or reopening our economy, but a radical immigration bill granting citizenship to millions of illegal aliens.”

He added, “Not only does it undermine our rule of law and encourage more illegal immigration, it tells our fellow Americans their misfortune isn’t our nation’s top priority. Will this proposal help Americans get back to work? Most certainly not. And until that happens, the Biden Administration must focus on helping our own citizens first.”
